One foolproof way to achieving a coherent interior design is to pick one style and center the choice of color scheme, fabric material, furniture, and accent pieces on it. While deciding on a style is effortless for some, most homeowners are left on the fence with which style to go with. Although, it is important to have a primary theme, incorporating more than one interior style is a feasible route.
Below are some décor options particularly for beach house dwellers, looking to infuse hints of vintage to a coastal home.
Lucia Metal Chair
This timeless piece inspired by unusual period works, reminiscent of the 19th century furniture influences adds a touch of vintage to any beach-styled house. The antique gold finish is sure to stand out amidst the neutral coastal hues of a beach home. Mixing and matching a variety of pieces is a welcome option but purchasing coordinating items from the same collection create a seamless vintage-coastal look.
Clam Bowl with Antique Gold Interior
Décor plays a part in completing the look of any space as it enhances the overall aesthetic of the room. Although often considered a least priority, the choice of décor can make or break the general appeal of the interior style. Consider the color scheme of the space when selecting finishing touches. Add refined but appropriate hints of ocean-inspired decors like this clam bowl piece, perfect for the desk, bookshelf, or console table.
Jupiter Island Antique Brass Chandelier
Chandeliers naturally have an air of sophistication to them. This elegantly designed antique brass piece in particular is classic in its simplicity; a great statement piece fitting for an ocean-themed home of any type. The unorthodox structure is modern spin to this otherwise charmingly old-fashioned décor. Consider having it displayed atop the dining room table to produce a romantic, modern ambience.
Lamps are a great way to incorporate subtle retro touches to the overall theme of the interior. This vintage Cottage & Bungalow nautical lamp for instance is a piece versatile enough to complement coastal-inspired styles from Traditional to American or Tropical to Mediterranean. This sculptural yet lyrically assembled piece was fashioned from iron discs finished in antique brass which is mounted on an acrylic base.
Antique Mercury Glass Candy Dish Pendant
There is no shortage of natural light in beach houses. But as soon as the sun sets, artificial light sources play a huge part in maintaining the tranquil and scenic mood of the entire house. When styling a coastal home, find ways to incorporate a weathered, rustic look by bringing in antique pieces like this vintage mercury glass pendant that is both functional and tasteful.
