Decorating Your Island Paradise

When you decorate your home as a beach house, every day will feel like a day at the beach. This is a very popular style for oceanside vacation homes, but it’s an equally appropriate style for those who want to experience the relaxation of the beach while they’re stuck in their landlocked home. If you love the sight of the surf and the sand, beach house d?cor is perfect for you! Every day of the year, your beachhouse d?cor will take you back to the lazy days of summer at the shore.

Think about how relaxing your home will become with just a few special touches. Enjoy a vacation year-round when you decorate with Hawaiian-made, nautical-inspired d?cor. Look to nature as your guide, decoratinh with a light color palette and natural fabrics. Think back to your last trip to the beach for inspiration when defining the essence of your beach house. Go for a natural look that will make your bright, tropical accessories really ?pop.? Splashes of corals and reds inspired by the sunset will look great against ivory, tan, and sky blue backgrounds.

There are many different embellishments for the home that can make you imagine the warm breeze coming off the ocean. Anyone with a fondness for the beach can enjoy bringing a bit of the beach indoors with boat paddles, seashell d?cor, ‘aloha’ accessories, and of course, ?gone fishing? signs. Choose motifs of sea shells, palm trees, tropical flowers, or even sea turtles and starfish for a classic beach look.

If you want a more exotic mood, you can even add tiki masks or other Polynesian-inspired styles. These accessories are the perfect way to decorate your home, inside and out, so that you’ll immediately be transported to an island paradise the minute you get home. Indoor tiki statues are definitely a statement piece, and they’ll make everyone who enters your home stop and take notice. These carved wooden sculptures will have an immediate affect on the mood of the room. They would look great standing next to your tiki bar, of course, but will even create an island paradise on their own, as the only piece of island-inspired d?cor in the room.

If your perfect beach house is really more of a lake house, take your cue from nautical designs, and decorate with the motifs of fish and sailboats. Driftwood is particularly popular for decorating a nautically-inspired room. Nautical d?cor will immediately bring to mind the sights and sounds of the coast, and is the perfect style for nearly every room of the home, from kids’ rooms to kitchens and even the bathroom.

Decorating your beach-inspired home has almost no limits. There are many different ways to interpret the island lifestyle when decorating your home. Whether you’re looking to make your home look like a Hawaiian beach paradise, or a Cape Cod getaway, the addition of just a few accessories will help you decorate your beachhouse in a stylish manner to bring a bit of the beach into your everyday life.
