Once again the idea is to create a serene and tranquil setting that is as close to the experience of a beach life as possible. Wickers tools rattan furniture and beds with a natural oak frame fit perfectly into the scheme of things.
This is a particularly apt look for the kids’ bedroom where you can recreate an African safari setting with colorful wallpaper and textiles with a wild print!
In case white does not do it for you use beach-inspired shades like sandy beige light cream charcoal off-whites or a very light yellow that inspires images of a sun-kissed beach at dawn! Refreshing light blues cool aqua light teal and turquoise are perfect additions as the accent shades that enliven the space.
Heavy wooden elements combined with brick walls in white can create a smart background for styles such as Mediterranean farmhouse and rustic. The use of a whitewashed brick wall gives the living room a cheerful light and breezy ambiance where natural light is amplified to create an atmosphere of freshness. This makes them apt for elegant and unique beach-style living rooms as well.
