The best way to decorate your beach house is to leave predefined styles and stereotyped decorations aside. All you have to do to make the holiday location welcoming and personal will be to rely on instinct and imitate the slow, fluid and free rhythm of the sea.
The marine style is free to range between different materials, colors and atmospheres. Furnishing a house by the sea is like connecting to the environment and communicating with the surrounding nature: what do you see? what are you breathing? what catches your eye?
Let yourself be carried away by the atmosphere of the place and imagine bringing the intense colors of the sea and the suggestive shades of the sunsets into your home.
Choose the furnishing elements according to the materials and processes typical of the place - lava stone, dry stone walls, white domed roofs, arched openings, cylindrical constructions - and have fun creating harmonious and balanced stylistic combinations.
Combine with simplicity design furniture and travel memories, objects found in the most evocative places in the world and marine-inspired DIY creations, ethnic touches and small objects recovered in the markets.
And don't forget to add a decorative leitmotif to harmonize it all.
Here are 3 decorative suggestions, each one is dominated by a holiday-inspired color palette.
Choose the one you like the most or create a personalized and inimitable mix!
1. Beach style "beach cabin": white, red and black
2. Nautical / Coastal style: white, light blue and navy blue
3. Wood and natural fibers: white, beige and sand
1. DÉCOR IDEAS STOLEN AT BATHING FACILITIES
If you want to play with the combinations of white, black and red to decorate your beach house, copy the style of the bathing establishments!
Imagine a red and white striped tent to shade the outdoor dining area, objects inspired by the shape of the beach cabins, eclectic furnishings, vintage stools combined with modern white metal tables, cult furnishings mixed with old family pieces, freestyle environments where colors mix in an original but measured way.
To follow the white / black / red theme of the beach huts try to take a look at these design pieces, perfect both for dressing the living room and for furnishing a patio or veranda.
Le versioni cromatiche della poltrona Piña di Magis – bianco, nero e corallo – assecondano il gioco di colori degli stabilimenti balneari, creando un angolo di puro relax sia indoor che outdoor. Questa seduta combina design contemporaneo – linee affusolate e minimaliste, struttura composta da un intreccio di canne in acciaio traforato – con il calore e la morbidezza dei piedi in legno massello di frassino verniciato e i soffici cuscini rivestiti di tessuto Kvadrat sfoderabile.
La texture in bianco crea un habitat etereo e luminoso, la nuance in nero dà vita ad un seducente stile optical, mentre la versione corallo è una sferzata di pura energia.
In the rust-colored version, Piroscafo by Artemide emphasizes its vintage nature and takes on the value of a lively and witty design object.
The name is not accidental: the design recalls the technical elements of steamers, ancient steamships. The lamp, which literally seems to "come out" from the ground, also resembles a submerged submarine!
This outdoor lamp is perfect for illuminating paths, flower beds and gardens and for defining an edge of the pool in an original and suggestive way.
If you love the colors of the sea, try to dictate the style with nautical / Coastal-themed decorations and striped patterns in the chromatic palette of the sea: from white to turquoise, passing through the navy blue, chic and elegant nuance.
Choose soft and natural fabrics (cotton, linen, silk) inspired by the shades of the ocean, beach-themed cushions, turquoise seats to combine with white outdoor tables (such as Circle by Talenti round table or Quatris by Vermobil rectangular table).
To add a fresh touch to your beach home, have fun creating a two-tone wall with white and blue stripes or set up a corner with a marine-themed wallpaper.
To complete the style, scatter marine objects here and there: knots, oars, anchors, flags, shells and starfish.
Nature-inspired furnishings play with the chromatic scale of beige and earth colors.
The lively floral prints are a counterpoint to the feeling of relaxation and well-being given by the faded woods and the dense or wide weaves of natural fibers.
The scene is dominated by neutral and restful tones, and materials linked to the marine imagination: rope, bamboo, sand-colored canvases, light and impalpable fabrics, slats, pickled wood paneling, wicker, rattan, Vienna straw.
The stackable armchairs, chairs, stools and tables of the Laren by Ethimo series recall, in form and colors, the furnishings that can still be admired in the gardens of Paris.
Ethimo updates the design in a modern key by adding comfortable armrests to the seats and using an appealing combination of teak wood and painted metal for the round tables and rectangular dining tables.
Whatever is the leitmotif of your beach home style, the important thing is to create a balanced and restful overall vision.
After all, the beach house is the place where you spend your holidays and unplug from the frenzy of everyday life. Surrounded by delicate color palettes, simple but not trivial compositions, natural materials and furnishings that suggest openness, freedom of expression and stylistic continuity between inside and outside.
In this way you will create environments in perfect balance between lived comfort, holiday style and personal touch.
