Summer is almost upon us and with summer, one can’t help but to think of the beach. I love the beach and even more, I love designing with beach inspired elements. Sure you can have beach decor anywhere in your home, indoors and out, but one of my favorite places to have a beach inspiration is in what I call, the R&R room, rest and relaxation. Nothing says relax like getting frequent massages in Huntington Beach or other beach cities. We might not all be able to do this, but you can easily capture that experience in your home.
To do this, find a room or even a space in your home that you can deem, the rest and relaxation section of your house. Add a few candles in fresh ocean scents and colors, incorporate some nautical themed decor like dock lines or beach lanterns into the space. You can also fill apothecary jars or mason jars with sand and seashells. Then frame a few pieces of beach or ocean artwork or photographs and hang them. If your room allows for it, give the walls a fresh set of paint and add a nice relaxing chair.
