Jumpstart Your Day: 3 Ways to Achieve a Coastal-themed Home
Create a relaxing feel at home with these tips from interior designer Van Acuña-Solana
Aside from adding personal touches and displaying the things we love, there are other things that we can do to truly make a house our own. We can always add details and pieces that remind us of happy times, memorable trips, and favorite destinations.
If you've always loved the beach and you always look forward to the calming waves and white sand, you can create a home that can showcase elements reminiscent of your favorite getaway! Take inspiration from this 49sqm unit designed by interior designer Van Acuña-Solana.
Add colors that remind you of the sea and sky
“Blue is a clear choice for coastal-chic interiors. Incorporate a range of blue tones, but use restraint and balance these colors with white, wood, and other warm-hued pieces,” explains Van.
Choose raw, natural linen for upholstery and Roman shades
“Stick to natural materials like linen fabric for a sophisticated seaside feeling.”
Opt for white elements and beach-inspired accents
Achieve an airy, refreshing, and invigorating feeling by going for white elements on the walls, bedding, and furniture. White serves as the perfect background for the beach-inspired elements and pieces.
