You’ll often see suggestions of bold colors in contrast to soft muted tones, but in a beach home, it’s sometimes nice even to keep your accent colors muted.

You can imagine a deep copper bathtub in a ship captain’s quarter, and that’s what gives such a fine addition to your bathroom it’s charm.

In a Ralph Lauren exec’s beach house, a George Nelson pendant light hangs above the dining table, whose base is a tree trunk salvaged from the beach; the armchairs are by Ralph Lauren Home, the photograph is by Lynda Churilla, and the pillows are a mix of Ralph Lauren Home fabrics and a vintage check.

With 34% of 30 to 59 year old’s upcycling to create something by themselves and 27% doing it for fun, upcycling has become a popular new trend in the last few years.

You want textures which don’t just feel obvious; you want them to be visually obvious.

Instead, choose furniture which is in tune with the style choices of your coastal home. You want them to be able to stand out on their own and be the real focus of the room.

Pastel hues can be a nice focus, especially with colors like coral having such a beachy influence.

Something is charming about the faded wood finish that you find in many coastal home designs. Your kitchen is the perfect place to incorporate this style.

In Amy Fine Collins’ Fishers Island home, a guest room’s 1920s wicker chairs are original to the house, the 19th-century table is American, the rug is by Doug and Gene Meyer, and the wall treatment is by Robert Hoven.

To mix up this minimalist style, you should focus on the room’s function being the highlight. For a dining room, that means making the dining table the feature. For a living room make the sofa the highlight.

Related: Tips for Decorating a Beach Home With White An all-white room by the beach is certainly blissful (it’s also known to promote a sense of calm and clarity). To keep it from falling flat, vary your shades and textures. In this breezy living room, crisp white walls pair with whitewashed wood ceilings, a bleached natural-weave rug, and slick concrete coffee table. Accents of beige, wood, and greenery help to warm the space up.

Nautical themes are practical in color choices, making it an easy long-term choice for a kids bedroom. You can easily mix up the theme with new linen and updated decor as they grow up.

From the sand between your toes to the rocks in your hands, so with your beach home, you want to do your best to recreate those feelings.

Related: Get Inspired by These California Cool Homes Beach homes are beloved for their kick-your-shoes-off vibe, which means treating anything too delicately is more often than not a big don’t (Hallelujah!). “You never want to design a home that feels too precious to really live in, especially at the beach,” said designer Tim Clarke. Use materials with natural imperfections, such as recycled wood, and opt for a less buttoned-up, more chill approach to styling (e.g., a chunky throw strewn over the back of an armchair).

What you can do instead is give your home an overarching style choice. Sticking to the shells style, don’t go for a shower curtain covered in shells.

Instead, enjoying a more minimalist room setting with the same style layouts can seem really different to more traditional designs.

In the mudroom of a Long Island summer home, the walls are covered in hand-painted strié stripes, the floor is waxed ceramic tile, and the antique rug is Anatolian.

Related: 10 Beautiful Blue Bedrooms While all-white rooms are coastal crowd-pleasers, infusing shades inspired by the outside are equally as appealing. “[Blue and green] make a good pair because we’re used to seeing the colors of grass and sky together, and it always feels optimistic and energetic,” said designer Meg Braff. For a foolproof recipe, start with a standout pattern that incorporates the two hues and translate the solid shades elsewhere on furniture, rugs, or walls.

You’ll find that layouts in modern coastal homes are the key difference to the traditional styles you may have seen in the past. Old fashioned coastal homes focused on heavily filled floor plans.

One of the greatest gifts humanity gave to home decor in the last 20 years was the upcycling of old furniture. Homeowners can hit the local thrift shop and find some of the most old-fashioned, outdated pieces of furniture and completely change the look of it.

Related: 11 More Dreamy Sleeping Porches Really, you should! Beach homes certainly have the leisure thing down, which is why so many of them have sleeping porches. These siesta-ready spaces are perfect for cozying up solo or chilling out on a cool night with a cocktail and a small group of friends. Accommodate lounging and snoozing in all seasons by decking the daybed with extra throws and installing a ceiling fan or space heater.

You can do this by layering textures together, things like woven rugs, smooth clay pottery, and jagged wooden ornaments all play a part in telling a texture based story.

Related: 25 Beautiful, Space-Saving Built-Ins Love hosting a crowd? The best way to maximize sleeping space is using bunk beds—and coastal designers have mastered the art of making them as fabulous as they are functional. Opt for space-saving built-ins, which work particularly well in cramped or oddly shaped rooms, and add fun textiles like brightly colored throws or patterned curtains to each bunk.

You can even paint your cabinets in a contrasting dark, chalky grey tone to give them a look that is fantastically chic. Country details work well with this setup like an old-fashioned plate rack, hanging mugs, and even a white range cooker.

You always want to start with a neutral base of colors. Don’t use monochromatic color tones for a harsh contrast, instead focus on muted tones. Off-whites, sandy colors and softer greys can create an environment that feels both inviting and soothing.

Here’s another solution for combating spills and stains on upholstery: Dress indoor furniture with outdoor fabric. Because it’s made to be weatherproof, it’ll hold up to anything and can easily be wiped clean with a damp cloth. (And don’t be put off by the comfort factor: modern offerings are designed to mimic the texture and feel of indoor fabrics, so your furniture will be soft, cool, and practical.)

Related: 10 Beautiful Blue Bathrooms If there’s one place you can almost always win big with a bold wallpaper, it’s in a powder room. Because of their tiny size, powder rooms often feel like a design afterthought, but a striking wallpaper can make it the star of the house. Try one with a large-scale, repeating motif—we love this gilded puffer fish find—and pair it with metallic accents like sconces and an antiqued mirror.

Your finishing touches to your beach house interior should be the accessories. Modern-day beach house decorating ideas will stick to just a few accent pieces that you would find in a typical beach house.

With such a wide array of amazing and beautiful beach house decorating ideas, you might want to incorporate every option in the list. Remember though that less is often more.

Nothing says coastal more than soft natural linen curtains blowing in from the breeze. This material will help to frame your delightful view lightly in style without overpowering.

For an outside area, your firepit should be your focal point. Make sure to focus on leaving negative space around it so your guests can move comfortably around the room.

One of our favorite design ideas we’ve seen is using the coastal faded wood design but as a wooden wall cladding. White-washed cladding helps to give your kitchen an instant beach-hut style feel.

The beds in a guest room of a beach house in Comporta, Portugal are topped with crocheted-cotton coverlets from Bulgaria, the wall hanging is Portuguese, and the tile floor is original to the house.

Related: 14 Ways to Decorate with Pattern Just as beach homes are natural fits for bold color, they’re also perfect spots to play with pattern. The trick is to stick with the patterns in the same color family—blue is an obvious choice for a beach home—and layer abstracts, geometrics, florals, or stripes of similar weights.

A beach house can be a delight to own and live in.  They make great second homes and investment properties for the family to enjoy and rent out weekly during high season.

From anchor themed wallpaper, paired with seashell rugs and rubber rings clad in starfish, there’s nothing cute or appealing about those styles.

If you want to add a touch of coastal elegance, stick to the small details. Don’t cover your room in fish netting, use it in a small feature like a small amount of netting used as a curtain tie-back.

You can also pair the bright orange of the copper with some light blue hues and cool pale colors throughout the rest of the bathroom.

Try to incorporate an element in your wall cladding that ties into another area of your beach house interior. We’ve seen wood paneled walls created as feature walls which is the same finish of wood as the chairs in a separate room.

Top Beach House Decorating Ideas Is your beach house looking dated? Or maybe you’re planning to buy one, and you’d like to remodel it? Whatever your beach house decorating needs are, let the pros help.

Here are 13 beach house decorating ideas that are as fresh as a summer breeze.

Your beach house should be a modern or classical display of splendor, not an ornate showing of HomeGood’s finest. Instead of going for a shell theme throughout your beach house, think outside of the box.

One of the biggest things you’ll notice about the beach is the feel of it. It’s tactile.

On the main terrace of a Palm Beach home overlooking the Atlantic, the sofa, cocktail table, and chairs are byGandia Blasco, the cushions are upholstered in a Link Outdoor fabric, and the rug is byStark; the landscape design is by Peggy Brazzeal.

One of the final takeaways is to not get too wrapped up in the beach house classical cliches. We’ve seen many a home in need of a decor makeover from getting nautical fever.

In the library of a Cape Cod home, the wing chair was bought at Chelsea Antiques, and the antique brass bed is covered with indigo fabrics and pillows made from grain sacks; the ceiling fixture is crafted from a salvaged boat hatch, and the walls and ceiling are painted in Benjamin Moore’s Dash of Curry.

Sunbleached surfaces tie in nicely with the well-worn feel of the coast. A bedroom is a perfect place to incorporate this look.

There are some amazing choices of beach homes everywhere from San Diego to Orange Country.

If you lack creativity, you can find some incredible upcycled furniture on Etsy ready made. There are also a lot of companies who will design and make furniture to specification if you have a creative idea.

In the living room of Meredith Melling and Zach Iscol’s retreat on Martha’s Vineyard, which was designed by Ariel Ashe and Reinaldo Leandro of Ashe + Leandro, the sofa by Restoration Hardware is covered in a Perennials linen, the Hans Wegner chairs are upholstered in a Brochier fabric, and the walnut cocktail table and stool are custom; the rug is a vintage Tuareg, the ceiling beams are Douglas fir, and the room is painted in Benjamin Moore’s Super White.

Related: 10 Creative Ideas for Windows Sheer curtains are the perfect beach window treatment, whether they’re used to close off a porch or shade a bright bedroom. They provide some privacy, yet still keep that airy, light-filled quality we all love in coastal homes.

Having a seating area alongside your window makes a perfect resting place for reading or simply taking in your surroundings.

Incorporating reclaimed wood into a wall cladding finish can give your home a warmth that a regular wallpaper or wall paint can never do.

An old-fashioned tub can give your bathroom an almost regal feel and will certainly impress any guests who want a dip in the tub. You can pair a copper tubs styling with accent features like hanging baskets for toiletries in shiny copper.

Antique Italian mirrors hang above consoles by Conde House in the living room of a Capri villa; the slipper chairs are by Creazioni, and the antique tile flooring is original to the house.

There’s nothing wrong with mixing things up though and incorporating a few modern elements like trendy statement pieces of furniture or lighting. This mixture of modern and traditional can give your home a quirky twist.

Make sure to keep the focus on the beach. You can use traditional features like beach signs or driftwood and modern pieces working in contrast like chevron pattern pillows or wallpaper and even fancy lighting fixtures.

Whatever the reason, creative beach house decorating ideas can be hard to think up. Luckily, our experience in San Diego real estate has exposed us to some of the most creative and amazing decorating ideas you could imagine.

On a lakeside estate in Uruguay, the boathouse’s bench is from Zimbabwe, and the room’s colors we custom-mixed by Claessens.
