Don’t be afraid of Colour
Beach chic minimalism doesn’t always mean white. According to the trend experts using blue on the walls gives a contemporary warm, seaside vibe and adding furniture and decor in this coming years predicted shades of hot red and navy blue means your themed room remains on trend.
Use Wood and Steel as a complimentary combo
While your kitchen might not always be a show kitchen, white cabinets and stainless steel appliances are a good way to maintain the home’s minimalist design whilst clever use of natural wooden light pendants above an island or breakfast bar that perfectly match with exposed beams and wood floors ground a space and give it some earthy context perfectly aligned to a beach look.
Opt for a few beachy statement pieces
Whether it’s an ocean-inspired piece of artwork, or a rope-like lighting fixture, adding a little drama to an understated room is the best way to decorate for a stylish look. The use of blue and white contemporary paintings add to a home’s coastal feel. Beach artwork makes it look casual but refined, and maybe even a little glamorous.
Add texture…and lots of it
Every beach is packed full of an array of textures from sand to water to driftwood — and your Mediterranean home should follow suit. Don’t be afraid to play with pairings that you wouldn’t normally gravitate toward; textures are definitely one way to be interesting without being jarring, but keep accessories natural using wood, glass, stone and ceramics. Mix it up with a few larger pieces and then incorporate some smaller details on white washed distressed furniture.
