Ways to Make Your Home Feel Like the Beach

Put your umbrellas away! Warmer and drier weather is expected in October, according to the Meteorological Service Singapore. If a coastal vacation is where you want to be but can’t right now, evoke the breeziness of the beach through the use of natural light, soft tones, and a clean aesthetic in your home.




Let there be light

If you have one thing inside a coastal home, it needs to be abundant light. Interiors should never feel dim or cramped but relatively light, open, and airy. You want to feel there’s no boundary between indoors and outdoors, so large windows, glass doors, and skylights are key. Window treatments should also be kept minimal so as not to detract from the natural light.

White is key

A crisp, white interior is more accurate when you think of coastal. Less is more, and it favours neutral palettes. But that doesn’t mean you can’t accent with colour. Though you’ll still want to keep it soft, accent colours typically include neutrals, such as a warmer beige or khaki, light blues, greys, and greens.

Add in your seashells, but with restraint

It’s OK to add a few seaside touches, like shells, glass bottles, or woven baskets, but the key is not to go overboard. You want it to feel easy and natural, and clutter is a serious no-no if you want to achieve that breezy, spacious vibe. Keep it simple, and you can’t go wrong.
