There’s nothing like living in Kingsville, Ontario along the beautiful shores of Lake Erie and looking out into a summer sunset and seeing beautiful sailboats racing along. Some families are fortunate to own a lakefront home or cottage, but if you don’t, adding coastal or nautical elements to your decor can bring the beach vibes to you!
Do you long for the beachy vibe but don’t know where to start? Painting your walls white is a hallmark of this style and will give your space a clean and airy coastal vibe.
Giving your home the nautical or coastal look can be as easy as adding a few decorative elements. Here’s what to look for to achieve this style:
- White walls
- Light fabric furniture
- Navy blue and red accents
- Beach glass
- Bird of Paradise plant
- Palm plant
- Decorative boat pieces
- Mermaid art
- Oars and paddles
- Whales and sea creatures
- Light wood tones
- Round porthole mirror
- Flip flops
