There is something very special about sunny days at the beach. Warm sunshine, soft sand and cool surf provide the perfect backdrop for relaxing – it’s no wonder that so many people choose to spend their vacation time at the seashore! Bright, fun colors abound at the beach and one of this year’s favorites is coral – from peachy or pink shades to deep rich coral, it’s the perfect contrast to the glistening beige backdrop of the sand.
Collect a few shells while you walk along the shore and bring them home to keep the memories alive throughout the year. Surround your bathroom walls with playful sand dollars or add a window mural with beautiful conch shells to brighten the view in a windowless room. Opt for feathery coral patterned wallpaper for a softly sophisticated look in the dining room.
Cabana and awning stripes are always a classic choice at the beach or in your home. Try one like Candice Olson’s Cabana Stripe for punchy color that has a relaxed fun feel to it.
Wrap your walls in pretty coral with a dreamy floral print or trendy geometric design; try a combination on the bed and the walls. Accent with an eye catching coral lamp or decorative toss cushions. The warm glow of coral is surprising versatile and suits a large variety of styles and tastes.
Perhaps the seashore means vintage cottages and shore gardens bedecked with a riot of roses or hydrangeas. Go feminine at your seashore cottage with York’s beautiful hydrangea pattern. Pretty petals make a perfectly romantic room from table top to walls. Whichever style brings home your beach memories, York has your walls covered!
