You can always appreciate the freshness of the seaside no matter how close or far away you may live from it. Even if the shore is right in your backyard, beachy design elements are a big hit in any home. Neutral, fresh palettes and natural decor can really revitalise a space and help bring a touch of the ocean into your home, without getting sandy feet! So why not bring the beach indoors this winter and feel the salt air all year round? Read on for our tips on beach themed home design.


Whether you’re after natural decor or something a little more nautical, the ocean is highly versatile as a theme. From a simple splash of paint, to finding the perfect marine decor, this guide will help you find all you need for your oceanic oasis. We’ve also added some Southern Highlands carpenters that’ll help you build those perfect wooden additions!

It isn’t difficult to find beach-themed colour swatches. Once you start hunting them down, you’ll also notice a range of similarities. Colours that resemble the beach range from light blues to sandy browns—for obvious reasons! Keeping to the more neutral colours (as opposed to deep ocean blues) will instantly freshen any space and make it seem more open and natural. Light colours will also complement more decor.

Take a vintage approach

Bring your bathroom back into yesteryear with a classic pavilion themed bathroom. This is where you can be more bold with your colour choices. Why not paint the walls to match those classic old school bathing suits? Even things out with a healthy dash of white and you’ve got yourself the makings of a classic European beach changing room!

Naturalise your decor

The most efficient way to add some beach to your home is to purchase some themed decor. Without doing anything too drastic, you can make the theme as subtle or dominant as you like. Decorations such as framed shells, starfish and driftwood can are excellent additions to any home wanting a touch of the ocean—they will also look good hung on the wall or placed on surfaces. Why not make waves in your bedroom with some fresh blue or white sheets?

Bring the beach into your kitchen

Jazz things up in the kitchen by adding a new splashback. Whether you go for a simple, solid colour or a shoreline landscape, a new splashback will have you really enjoying your kitchen! Not only can a splashback create an efficient solution for cleaning your kitchen walls, they can also freshen up your kitchen’s overall look and create a focal point.
