From the sound of the waves to the sand between one’s toes, a trip to the beach is the best getaway for those looking for some quiet time—to think, reflect, and simply to unwind. When the owner of this unit decided to renovate her condo, she envisioned it to be a staycation place where she can hang out in peace, read a book, and even get some work done on the side. The best inspiration? Nothing but the beach, of course!

Modern and rustic furniture pieces complete the home, while accessories in aqua, teal, and turquoise can be seen all over the space. To stay true to the refreshing and airy coastal feel, walls are in white, blue, and light gray. The best part about this DIY renovation project? The accessories and furniture were all bought at affordable prices! Having pegs, visiting different stores, and being on the lookout for sales and good deals helped the owner keep costs at a minimum while still achieving the look she has in mind.
