Creating Everyday Summer Vibes: Make Your Home Feel Like a Tropical Coastal Holiday
Who doesn't dream of the carefree days of a tropical coastal holiday, where the sun shines, the breeze is warm, and the sea glistens invitingly? While you might not be able to jet off to a beach paradise every day, you can certainly bring the spirit of the tropics to your home. In this blog, we'll explore how to transform your living space into a tropical coastal retreat, ensuring that every day feels like a summer holiday.
Turning your home into an everyday tropical coastal holiday is all about capturing the essence of a beach paradise – relaxation, beach walk, collecting shells and a connection to ocean. By embracing beachy colour palettes and textures, incorporating natural materials, and introducing tropical and coastal Artwork, patterns, and décor, you can transform your home into a personal oasis. With the right elements, you'll find yourself savouring the vacation atmosphere every day, making home feel like a never-ending summer holiday by the sea.
Embrace a Beachy Colour Palette
The first step to creating a tropical coastal vibe is to embrace a beachy colour palette. Think shades of turquoise, aqua, and seafoam green for a refreshing and tranquil ambiance. Accents of coral, and the beautiful sandy beach neutral beige tones to infuse warmth.
Incorporate Natural Materials
Tropical coastal décor often includes natural materials like bamboo, rattan, and teak. Consider adding furniture made from these materials or incorporating decorative elements such as woven baskets, seagrass rugs, and jute throw pillows for that organic and breezy feel.
Tropical Prints and Patterns
Integrate tropical, coastal and beachy style art work or prints into your décor. Palm leaves and seagrasses can instantly transport you to a coastal paradise. You can also add these elements with cushions, throws and even wallpaper.
Bring the Outdoors In
Create a seamless connection between your indoor and outdoor spaces. Large, open windows and glass doors help bring in natural light and create a sense of expansiveness. Place indoor plants like palm trees, monstera, and succulents to enhance the tropical atmosphere.
Seashells, corals, driftwood, and beachcombed treasures can be used as decorative elements throughout your home. Arrange them in glass jars, as table centrepieces, or even as wall art for that coastal beach touch.
Comfortable Lounge Areas
Make your living spaces comfortable and inviting with plush cushions, sunbeds, and hammocks. Comfy lounging areas are essential for creating that "lazy day on the beach" vibe right in your home.
Invest in scents that evoke the sea and the tropics. Consider using candles or diffusers with fragrances like coconut, zesty lemon or lime, sea breeze, or saltwater to create an olfactory experience that transports you to the coast.
Set up an outdoor dining area on your deck, patio or in your garden. Use tropical-inspired tableware, shell placemats, and coastal tableware to create a beachfront dining experience in your own backyard.
Hang Up a Hammock
Few things are as synonymous with relaxation as a hammock. If you have space, hang up a hammock indoors or in your garden. It's the perfect place to unwind with a book or just to daydream.
