We at Sand Between My Piggies love the beach, and we love bringing aspects of our favorite elements of nature into our homes and across our porch. Summer is just around the corner, and with it, all of the warm, beachy weather we could ever need! I hope you and your families are spending time nestled on the porch steps. If not, here are some of my favorite ways to “Bring the Beach to Your Porch!”
Color scheme is everything when it comes to beach decor! Pick patterns that are striped, or a color that reminds you of the coast. Add throw pillows to your patio furniture for a relaxing vibe that will make you feel like you’re sitting by the ocean. Even if you can’t see it from where you are!
Do you see that wicker basket poking out from the frame of the photo? They are absolutely AMAZING for storage, and the wicker basket looks like it could have been woven using something at the beach!
TIP: Don’t be afraid to experiment with the color of your front door! The green here looks beautiful because it almost identical to the color of the greenery in the background! Talk about blending in to your surroundings!
If you are lucky enough to call the beach your front (or back!) yard, make sure it’s highlighted in multiple aspects of your decor. Clear fencing allows the best views of the ocean, ever! I love that yellow was used as the accent color, because of the contrast it creates with the turquoise of the ocean.
I bet this isn’t exactly what you had envisioned when you thought of a coastal porch!
If you have the space, create an “outdoor living room” across your deck, porch, or patio. The white linens are hung from the ceiling, and I bet they would look incredible when caught by a salty ocean breeze! Hang your furniture from the ceiling as well, for a relaxing oasis.
