Beach house decor - 10 simple design tips for coastal interiors

To create a relaxed beach house look, use sun-bleached colors, natural textures, and delicate fabrics. Say goodbye to overly themed and overly decorated schemes with our curated selection of beach house and coastal decor ideas that will provide a peaceful escape from city life. Can you hear the soothing sound of the waves?

Start with a Background of White

If you want to give your home a beachy feel, adding white elements through paint or fabric is a simple and budget-friendly option. Not only does white allow the beauty of your home to shine, but it also creates a fresh and casual atmosphere.

We transformed our living room into a more relaxed and comfortable space by adding a fresh coat of white paint, a white sectional, a round wood coffee table, and a beach-themed rug.

Similarly, we created an instant feeling of relaxation and calm in our master bedroom by incorporating white bedding with touches of blue.

When using a lot of white in a space, it's important to add texture for visual interest. Wood cutting boards are a great way to bring texture to an all-white kitchen.

My favorite white paint colors are Benjamin Moore White Dove and Benjamin Moore Simply White, which we used throughout our home, including on our kitchen cabinets. You can learn more about the paint colors we used in our home in this post: All the Paint Colors We Used in Our Home.

Layered Textures

The key to creating an interesting neutral interior is to incorporate different textures. This living room, designed by Jen Samson, combines rich wood finishes, metal, glass, and linen to add depth and character.

Blue tones are inherently connected to the water, and they can change the mood of a room. Try pairing watery blues with clay-inspired shades or warm orange and terracotta tones for a rich contrast.

Look up to the 'fifth' wall

Ceilings offer a great opportunity to get creative and go beyond the four walls of your beach house. This coastal retreat in Amagansett Bay, East Hampton, designed by Amalia Graziani of Noor Property Group, features unfinished oak wood panels on the ceiling and walls to create a warm and uniform palette.

Focus on Neutrals and Texture

The essence of beach house interior design lies in the combination of a neutral color palette and texture.

In beach house interiors, neutral hues like blue, grey, beige, white, ivory, and tan work beautifully together. These colors reflect the sea, sand, and sky.

Add Thoughtful Details

To enhance the overall aesthetic, pay attention to small details like fringe and tassels on throws and pillows. Not only do they add a touch of boho beach house style, but they also provide visual interest and cohesiveness to a bedroom while creating a soothing focal point.

Create a Formal(ish) Dining Room

Maura McEvoy Photography

In the age of open floor plans, dining hubs have become more flexible than ever. Whether it's a nook off the kitchen, as shown in this space by decorator Colleen Bashaw, or a separate room altogether, make the most of your walls. Wallpaper or wainscot can add character and define the space, while pretty trim and unique wall art, such as vintage oyster plates, create a mood-setting ambiance for a delightful dinner party. Don't forget the sconces for a touch of atmospheric lighting.

Creature Comforts

Use color, texture, and materials to add depth

This beach house was designed to provide warmth in the winter and a sense of freshness and tranquillity in the summer. The focus was on creating a calm and considered room, avoiding excessive decoration. The combination of pale colors and darker finishes adds depth to the space, while coastal accessories bring a New England-style charm to the living room.

Install Brass Hardware and Fixtures

According to Anne Maxwell Foster, brass can soften any interior. Unlacquered brass is particularly recommended because it develops a unique patina over time, adding character and a timeless feel to the room.

Design a Bombshell Bar

Robbie Caponetto; Styling: Lydia Pursell

A bar in a prominent gathering room immediately puts people at ease, says Christopher Spitzmiller. Whether it's a stylish bar cart or a built-in cocktail station, having a bar cuts down on hosting duties. Spice it up with local art, quirky curiosities, and vintage glassware.

Dress Up With Scene-Stealing Trim

Bright, high-impact trim is like putting a picture frame around your view, says Anne Maxwell Foster. Choosing a color from your wallpaper or contrasting pastel or gray walls with darker trim creates a tonal pairing that adds a touch of drama and elegance.

Opt for Deep-Seating Outdoor Furniture

Deep-seating furniture with extended seat depth provides cozy comfort for outdoor lounging. The extra space makes it perfect for enjoying the sunset as the day winds down.

Create Contrast With Trim

Dark shingles or siding with white contrasting trim creates a dramatic and timeless look for beach houses, says Mark D. Sikes. The combination of dark and light adds depth and visual interest.

Pick Retro-Chic Appliances

Adding a powder-blue Smeg fridge to your kitchen brings a touch of nostalgia and coolness. It's a retro-chic element that enhances the overall style of your kitchen.

Consider Rustic Touches

Incorporating simple wood-and-iron furniture creates a cozy and inviting atmosphere, encouraging you to slow down and enjoy the moment. The rustic elements complement the light and airy kitchen.

Use Minimal Hardscape

In coastal landscapes, it's best to keep hardscape to a minimum. Using a light hand with hardscape allows the blue water and natural greenery to take center stage. Keep paths slim to create a seamless connection with the outdoors.

Bring Pretty Outdoor Fabrics Inside

Alison Miksch

All-weather fabrics like Sunbrella, Perennials, and Link Outdoor fabrics are perfect for beach houses. They are stain and moisture resistant, making them durable enough for every piece of furniture in the house. With newer fabric technology, they are indistinguishable from traditional indoor fabrics.

Install a Warm Wood Backsplash

A whitewashed pecky wood backsplash arranged in a herringbone pattern adds warmth and a touch of unexpectedness to the kitchen. It creates a beachy vibe without overpowering the space.

Layer Rugs

Layering a natural-fiber rug with an antique rug or dhurrie adds warmth, color, and texture to your space. Size the top layer slightly smaller to create a visually interesting composition. It's an easy way to switch up your decor when you're ready for a change.

Add Copper Details

Lauren Rubenstein

Copper is an excellent choice for exterior fixtures, lighting, and hardware in a beach house. Its long-lasting nature and character-building patina make it a standout material. Look for copper fixtures with a verdigris finish for an aged look.

Incorporate Tomorrow's Heirlooms

Create a familiar charm in your beach house by mixing classic investment pieces with passed-down treasures. A four-poster bed and other timeless items establish a coastal vibe that the next generation will want to recreate.

Use Botanical Prints

Incorporating wallpapers with bold prints rooted in history brings a sense of longevity to your walls. Botanical prints, like this classic leaf pattern, add visual impact and connect your interior space with the outdoors.

Play With New Neutrals

Julie Soefer Photography

Embrace soft hues found along the shoreline, such as light pinks, earthy greens, and calm blues. These colors, inspired by the natural landscape, work well as foundation colors or accents in a beach house.

Accentuate With Warm Wood

Adding raw poplar in a herringbone pattern to your walls creates a unique and artistic spin on traditional wood paneling. The wood's character and finish bring sophistication and charm to the space, while bold colors complement its natural beauty.

High-impact wall details, such as floor-to-ceiling beadboard or ornamental latticework paneling, reinforce a room's connection with the outdoors. These decorative coverings add a touch of sophistication and bring the outside in.

Give Kitchens Character

Character is key in modern kitchens. Choosing graphic tile with hand-painted geometric patterns adds a sense of place and personality to your kitchen. It's a unique touch that sets it apart.

Highlight Floors With Pattern

Add Interest and Texture to a White Space

Even in a city abode, you can create a truly unwinding space by embracing white living room ideas. Surprisingly, a white decorating scheme works beautifully for a beachy theme. It evokes cleanliness, serenity, confidence, and sophistication, making it a versatile color choice for your coastal living room.

To avoid a clinical or sterile look in predominantly white spaces, decorate with neutrals. Adding texture is crucial as it creates interest and layers, especially when strong colors are not involved.

According to interior designer Katie Hodges, new coats of white paint transformed the previously dingy interior into a crisp and fresh space. The natural, roughly hewn textures, such as seagrass curtains, wood tones, and leathers, add depth and warmth to the room.

Curate a Sophisticated Yet Rustic Space

New England coastal style strikes a perfect balance between sophistication and rustic charm. It offers a countryside escape without leaving the city limits.

This renovated breakfast bar, designed by Becca Casey of Becca Interiors, surprises with a serene aesthetic that showcases the stunning light of its seaside location.

According to Becca Casey, it's easy to over-furnish a beach house space, but it's crucial to avoid chaos in a themed space. Taking a less-is-more approach and keeping a simple color scheme creates a haven of peace and tranquillity. The coastal scenery on the wall décor reinforces the seaside ambiance.

How Do I Make My House Look Beachy?

Create a year-round holiday vibe in your home by decorating in a bright and breezy beach house style.

For a beachy scheme, opt for soft furnishings with a relaxed, lived-in feel. Woven wicker, weathered wood, and bleached linen add a touch of beach house charm. Incorporate natural details like pebbles, driftwood pieces, seashells, and imitation coral for an authentic coastal feel.

Similar to Scandinavian design, beach house décor is characterized by pared-back, unfussy, and uncluttered spaces. It combines aesthetics and functionality to create visually pleasing and practical interiors.

Incorporating beach house decor into your home is a surefire way to create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere. By following these 10 simple design tips, you can transform any space into a coastal oasis. From starting with a backdrop of white to adding in natural fabrics and woven elements, every detail counts. Don't forget to include thoughtful touches like antique finds and seashell collections for added charm. With bold contrasts, marine fixtures, and sunwashed textures, you can bring the beach to life in your own home. So, why wait? Embrace the beauty of the seaside and make your house look beachy today.
