Upon entering a vacation home, a guest wants to have the overwhelming feeling of “I am on vacation”. At times it seems that this feeling can be hindered by dark linens, wacky patterned curtains, or an overall lack of continuance and thoughtful design behind the accent pieces and decor of their vacation home. We want to talk about the power of clean colors, chic accents, and the best way to have that coastal vacation feel without screaming “BEACH” too loudly. We’ve put together some of our favorite pieces from some of our best performing rental properties, both villas and homes, to show some of the simple changes that can be made to take your home from “this works…” to “wow”.
Here we have a few examples of the color scheme that best compliments the calm and serene feeling a vacation should evoke, but still within the coastal look. Light shades of blues, greens, and tans mimic the colors of the sky, water, and sand, all creating a harmonious blend in your home. Throwing a fun and simple design in the form of a pillow or wall art is a great way to add your personal flair, and still feel that the home reflects you, the owner!
Another way that we love to see the ocean theme come out in is lighting. From using literal oyster shells in a chandelier to using blown glass light fixtures that look coral, these not only light up the room but add a stylish touch of classy, low country vibes.
Lastly, we have one of the simplest ways to step up your coastal decor game, and that’s with art! We are so in love with the pop of color the shrimp painting adds to one of our funky little homes, or the simple, yet beautiful addition that the Hilton Head Island water depth map has made in this living space. Or the whimsical oyster painting that’s equally artistic and classic with flashes of gold throughout! It’s incredible what small changes can create in your home! Even better, you don’t need to do a complete remodel to have this chic look, just change one or two pieces at a time and soon enough you’ll have a designer’s dream in the forth of a beach vacation home.
