What colors to use?
To bring a coastal look inside, the best way is to choose natural colors. Use the golden 60:30:10 rule for choosing colors in the room. Let the major color be 60 percent of the room and this color is usually for the walls, 30 percent goes to the secondary color and 10 percent is for the accent color.
Blue. We all know that blue is the color of the sea and sky, so this one is the perfect choice for the room. The blue color is relaxing for our eyes and mind, just like water has the same effect. Combine blue with white decor or pieces of furniture. Paint the focal wall in blue and put a white shelf there. It will be a nice contrast.
Sand. Sand comes with the sea, so this tone will be also perfect for the house. Sand tone or beige color will make the room warm. The range of sand tones differs from pale cream to caramel.
Green. Another relaxing and natural color that can be excellent for the home. Besides the blue, green color is also very popular among beach houses. You can combine green and sand tones in the room and get the ideal combination.
Other colors that can match the beach look are light or dark gray, lavender, yellow, or peachy color. White color is perfect choice for the walls outside. They are resistant to the Sun. Popular islands and homes in Greece are made of white stone, and that is one of the reasons. To save the home from heat.
One thing we need to mention before buying furniture for the beach house is that you need to think about climate changes. Some climate changes affect indoor furniture too. Choose furniture that is resistant and durable. The best material for furniture is rattan, hardwood, or natural materials from the surroundings. Great hardwood choices are maple, oak, teak. etc.
Colored, white wood looks very nice in the room. You can find beautiful ideas here.
