Let’s go down the shore… That’s Jersey speak for heading to the beach and there’s nothing better than the seaside on a hot summer day. Since we’re not all lucky enough to have a water view, we can do the next best thing and bring the beach chic look inside and as a part of our home decor.

1) Water

Nothing says beach more than cool shades of blues and greens. Whether you commit to turquoise walls or a cobalt sofa, or instead opt to scatter a few green glass fishing buoys on a coffee table, these hues work well.

2) Sand

Bring in the feeling of sand underfoot with a nubby sisal rug, wide plank floors, exposed ceiling beams or bamboo window shades.

3) Texture

A driftwood glass top coffee table, chippy paint on an old trunk, and a wicker chair brought inside are all fun ways to add dimension and texture.

4) Casual

Forget formality and go for a laid-back, prop your feet up feel with a huge ottoman, baskets piled high with beach reads or a collection of faded quilts for a chilly night.
