5 Nontacky Ways to Do Beach Home Decor

1. All white, all the time 


The best coastal interiors we’ve seen are cottony white.Slipcover your dining room chairs and sofa in a light, airy fabric, or paint beadboard  in a glossy white hue. To create a blank canvas for displaying art and other objects, paint your fireplace and surrounding walls in a light shade. 

2. Choose a neutral palette 

Think steel grays, crisp whites, pale greens, and sea blues. Add a muted splash of color to walls.  Throw in dark blue or aqua stripes on walls or floors for an unexpected accent.

3. Let the sunshine in

4. Embrace natural textures and fibers

Pair distressed or reclaimed wood coffee and end tables with a slipcovered sofa, and contrast a smooth-finish dining table with textured open-weave, wicker, or rattan chairs.  Brighten it up with oversize throw pillows in white, aqua, or nautical blue. 

5. Skip the elaborate shell display

Be creative and pick up frames at flea markets or consignment stores and paint or lime-wash them to display your favorite prints.  If you simply must throw in a seashell or two, place them in a sweet glass terrarium with a bit of seagrass for a modern, clean look.
