Do you drool over Diane Keaton’s Hampton’s Beach House in Something’s Gotta Give? I give Jack and Diane their due but I have watched that movie at least a dozen times just to soak in fabulous beach house decor. How to get the Something’s Gotta Give look on the broken bank budget?
Balance of vintage and new There is a fine line to walk when decorating any home, especially a beach house. To get a collected-over-time feel that is both clean lined and cozy pair glass sea floats, framed bits of coral, vintage nautical maps and newer white linen slip covered furniture.
To keep things simple in a house by the water so as to not distract from the view use white slipcovers on furniture and a crisp white color palette on floors, walls and ceilings. A little splash of color from accessories is the only color needed.
Jaipur’s Coastal Living and Indoor/Outdoor rugs offer the ultimate in casual seashore style. Mix and match sand colored sisal and jute rugs with hand tufted ocean botanicals. Highly textured sisal beach rugs deliver big style for a small budget.
Sea Glass Color Palette
Treasured finds tumbled smooth by ocean waves inspire a palette of blues and greens ideal for beachfront interiors. Turquoise, sea green and blue are great color accents for crisp white backgrounds! Although it’s becoming more common to leave sea glass on the beach for all to enjoy, you can still use its vibrant hues to map out an entire room’s decor.
