Curated Decor, Interior Design • March 6, 2023

Are you dreaming of a beachy home makeover, but unsure where to start? Inspiration can come from unexpected places beyond Instagram and Pinterst! Here are five unique sources of inspiration to help you create a coastal-inspired design that’s all your own.

  1. Nature

Nature is the ultimate inspiration for a beachy home. Take a walk on the beach and observe the colors, textures, and patterns around you. Bring home seashells, driftwood, and other natural elements to incorporate into your decor. Even indoor plants can add a touch of nature and help create a relaxed, coastal vibe.

  1. Travel

Travel can provide a wealth of inspiration for a beachy home makeover. Draw inspiration from your favorite beach destinations and use their color palettes, textures, and materials to create a unique coastal look. For example, if you love the laid-back style of the Caribbean, incorporate bright colors and tropical prints into your decor.

  1. Art

Art can be a great source of inspiration for your beachy home decor. Look for paintings, photographs, or prints that capture the essence of the beach. Use these pieces to inspire your color scheme and design choices. For example, a beach scene painting could inspire a calming color palette of blues and whites.

  1. Fashion

Beachy fashion trends can also provide inspiration for your home decor. Look to the colors, patterns, and textures of beachy clothing for ideas. For example, a nautical outfit could inspire a color scheme of navy, white, and red, or a bohemian beach dress could inspire a more eclectic mix of textures and patterns.

  1. Food

Yes, even food can inspire your beachy home decor! Look to coastal cuisine for inspiration on colors and textures. For example, seafood can inspire a color palette of muted blues and greens, while tropical fruits like mango and papaya can inspire brighter, bolder colors.

By looking beyond the typical sources of inspiration, you can create a beachy home that is uniquely you. Remember to have fun and let your creativity shine!
