Given that it’s summer, it can be tempting to leave the daily grind and make for your summerhouse. Yet before you do that, turning it into a home-away-from-home is advisable.
Here are 5 ways to turn your beach house into a seaside oasis:
If it rains at the beach, this doesn’t have to get boring for the kids. Instead, organize a fun crafts activity for the kids that you can use to display around your home. There are a number of ideas that you can think of using items that you find outside your and at the beach.
2: Create an Art Gallery
Use childrens’ art work for your white walls as they add color. Whether they are framed or not, these imaginative paintings or artwork can breathe life into your home. Apart from this, they will be a reminder of the times gone by in the years ahead.
3: Add a few maritime relics
You can add a few maritime relics like buoys and ship wheels at your home. Nautical decor, if you will. The good news is there’s no shortage of these relics that can be found easily. How you use them in your home is the creativity that you’ll need to bring to the table.
4: Decorate with locally sourced novelties
You can decorate your shelves with driftwood found on the shore or even items bought from the local vintage shop. Locally sourced novelties can give your home away from home an authentic feel.
5: Showcase collectibles
Find a spot in your home to show off collectibles. Whether it is old postage stamps, whaling memorabilia, vintage board games or even marine paintings, showcasing them is perfect to start off a light conversation.
