Transform Your Outdoor Space Into A Seaside Retreat With Beach Themed Decor
Even if you are miles away from the nearest beach, you can make your outdoor living space feel as though you are only a few feet from the sand. Your patio, deck or backyard can easily become an outdoor retreat that has its own unique personality, and an easygoing seaside vibe can easily be achieved with just a few accent pieces.
Have a Seat
For quintessential seaside seating, there is one standout – the Adirondack chair. Create comfortable outdoor seating with several of these chairs in a range of coastal hues. Make them the focus of your conversation area, or let them complement an existing set of outdoor furniture.
Make Yourself Comfortable
Just like a beach-side retreat invites you and your guests to kick back and relax, so should your beach-inspired outdoor space. Toss plenty of outdoor accent pillows on furniture that feature coastal designs and patterns. Add comfy pouf chairs in fresh beachy hues that can easily be added as more guests arrive.
Add an Accent
A few nautical-inspired accents can help set the coastal mood. Set large sea glass-inspired jar candles on side tables or hang jars from gazebo hooks or archways then fill them with LED candles, and a few seashells and sand, to help light the way once the sun sets.
Outdoor rugs that feature a coastal print in nautical hues will set the mood and help define the space for your conversation area. Try using multiple rugs to create a larger area. Be sure to stay within your coastal color palette and you will keep the beach theme right in line.
Salute the Sun
Use the power of the sun to power up outdoor LED lanterns. Hang multiple lanterns throughout the area, then watch them start to glow when the sun goes down. Your gathering can go well into the evening hours with the perfect amount of ambiance!
Turn Up the Heat
An outdoor heater is a must-have when the chilly evening sets in after the sun goes down. It’s nice to have several of them on hand to keep the entire area comfortable for you and your guests. A few warm throws are also a nice way to keep the chill at bay and look nice when they complement your throw pillows.
What better way to pay homage to the great sea? You may not be able to hear the incoming tide, but the addition of a solar garden fountain will provide the gentle sound of water to any outdoor space. The solar power means you don’t have to worry about electrical cords and outlets and you can take your beach retreat wherever you want in your backyard.
