Why settle for only being at the beach part time? We suggest bringing the sun, sand and surf inside – or at least decorating your home with a beach theme – so you can enjoy the relaxed, carefree vibe anytime.
If you don't have a collection from your own beach-combing excursions, you can buy sea glass (Pottery Barn, $15) and display it in pretty containers -- one of the best ways to welcome the beach into your home. These pieces in particular come in beautiful shades of blue, green and white, and are tumbled for a smooth, just-washed-up from the ocean look.
We fell instantly in love with this handmade translucent teal vase (Crate & Barrel, $25), reminiscent of waves gently lapping at the shore. Textural stripes of white glass are encased in another layer of teal, making for a unique, beach-inspired look. Leave empty (these are striking enough to stand alone) or display a single bloom in a bold color for dramatic effect.
Show off your love of sea creatures with these handcrafted plaques (West Elm, $39-$49) featuring starfish and ocean plants rendered in bas-relief papier-mâché. We love the minimalist design and how chic these will look on our bathroom wall or even in the kitchen.
Wherever you put this electric-blue chair (CB2, $90) you're sure to be reminded of the ocean. The swooping design reminds us of the ebb and flow of the water, and the bold shade of turquoise will add a fun pop of color to whatever room you put it in.
