Guest Post! Summery Looks - Beach House Touches

Hello, all! It's Mari here and I'm so excited to be here at Design Create Love today with a guest post from Arcadian Home blog. It's a fabulous place to find lots of interior design inspiration including beautiful home d√ącor ideas from coastal wall art to awesome foyer lighting and much more. Today, we're going to take a look at ways to get a summery look for your home with beach house touches. Whether you live near the ocean or in a land-locked apartment, it's a great look. Please enjoy! Thanks for letting me stop by for a visit. ~ Mari

Let's begin with an all out beach cottage look. This entire coastal vignette could be transported to the mud room of a suburban home with great results. The blue and white beach towels would be perfect for days at the local swimming pool instead of a sandy beach.

Add a wicker chair and a gallery wall of ocean themed artwork and you have an instant beach house look. A natural fiber area rug and blue skirted ottomans reinforce the coastal feel here.

Got the coastal blues and longing for summer? Add a beach house vibe to just about any white room with a chair upholstered or slipcovered in wavy blue and white fabric. Not all coastal looks must be literal.

This dining room has a rough painted gnarled wood table, but a space with a more traditional table base could just as easily be given a summery beach house look with blue glassware and contemporary painting in ocean blues and greens. A capiz pendant light and pale watery seats on the white chairs finish off the coastal look.

This lovely dining room goes for a summery look with sea blue bottles, a beach landscape painting and driftwood on the built-in buffet. A blue drum shade adds a beach feel to the modern pendant light.

Textiles are one of the easiest ways to add summery beach house touches to a room with a neutral color palette. The row boat on the ceiling, not so easy. I love the interior designer who did this bedroom suite.

By simply adding coastal wall art, this beautiful blue breakfast room gets a summery beach house look. I love everything about this room from the table decor to French bistro chairs and garden table.

A collection of oversized blown glass bottles can easily bring a beach house look to a city apartment. Add blooming branches and suddenly it's a spring, dreaming of summer time.
