If you are a happy beach house owner, want to buy one, or have a beach or coastal style design for your home, this roundup is for you. We’ve rounded up the coolest, most adorable modern coastal and beach rooms that inspire – even if you don’t have a beach house, we’re sure you’ll miss the ocean like us. So take a look!
Colors and materials
As well as being a beach area, your bedroom can be any style. However, we are discussing modern, contemporary, and Scandinavian beach and coastal bedrooms. Such rooms are usually rather laconic, they are often done in neutral colors with blue highlights or all white with a touch of blue tones that you like and stained wood – most often in light tones.
As for the materials, you can use wicker, woven and rattan accents for a cozy feeling outdoors, wood of all kinds and, of course, sea-inspired pieces like mother-of-pearl, seashells and coral to give the space that coastal feel.
Furniture and decor
Your bed can be upholstered, wicker, or rattan, or just wood to fit into a modern coastal space. Add a bench or ottoman if there is enough space and put cool bedside tables or hang them on the walls. Add a storage unit, hang a pretty chandelier made of wooden beads or mother-of-pearl. Pay special attention to your textiles – they set the mood and you can rock them in shades of blue and in different prints. Hang up artwork inspired by the ocean or create an entire gallery wall and voila, your bedroom is ready!
A well-designed front yard landscape highlights the beauty and architectural features of a home and adds value to a home by enhancing the curb appeal. While creating an attractive garden can take time and money, there are some creative, low-maintenance ways to update the exterior of your home without breaking the bank.
Mini water feature
A water feature in your front yard will instantly take the appeal of the curb to a new level and make it relaxing, calming, and inviting. It could be a pond, waterfall, or fountain - it's up to you and the style of your front yard. A small pond with water lilies is a classic, a modern waterfall with large rocks has a contemporary feel, and a small fountain is a great option for homeowners who like the sounds of a water feature but don't want to care about a pond or a large fountain. Choose water-related yearbooks and ground covers to ring the fountain without crowding it.
Nice picket fence
Plant the fenceline with a small variety of flowers. By repeating three or four flowers in a row, you can create a simple but stunning display that the neighborhood will be the envy of all. Hybrid roses are usually tough and resilient and, with moderate care, can reach their full potential within a year or two of planting. While you need to monitor your roses for insect infestation and disease, long-flowering strains get you three seasons of flowers. Rock different colors to keep the fence neutral or to contrast it as it turns purple or pink.
If you're too busy to make the border look perfect, go for pots. While it's particularly useful for bulbs that need special care and often hibernate indoors, you can also buy potted flowers, evergreen shrubs, or creeping ground cover and simply swap them out for new plants as the seasons change. This is a particularly useful idea for neglected side courtyards that are left free.
Line up your paths to make them look cooler! It can be made with different types of greens and flowers, with large stones and pebbles, or all of them here and there. While evergreens are sure to keep a garden from feeling bare in winter, azaleas have the added benefit of producing stunning flower displays in spring and early summer. However, they can be a perfect liner for the trails. Combined with a short but colorful ground cover like creeping thyme or phlox, a short hedge can be one of the most low-maintenance options for flower beds and sidewalks.
