Some of life’s sweetest memories are made at the beach. Hardly anyone can resist the enticing ambience of rest and relaxation that the seaside provides. If you live far from sandy beaches and ocean waves, don’t fret. You can still embrace coastal living with these beach wall decor ideas.

With our simple tips and tricks and a little coastal wall art, you can create an ocean-side paradise right in your living room!

Cruising with Coastal Colors

Subdued seaside hues are timeless for a reason. If you’re a traditionalist through and through, combine muted blues and off-whites for a space that is brimming with beach vibes. Hang the perfect piece of beach wall decor to create a stunning statement piece. Use soft blues and beiges to allow your wall art be the focus of the room.

Beyond the neutral nautical color scheme, there are tons of bright colors suited for a beach-themed interior. Consider tropical pops of hibiscus pink, palm green, and sunshiny yellow. Throw in a touch of teal to complete the vibrant color palette. No room in the house has to be dull!

Love The Ocean Breeze Multi Panel Canvas Wall Art

For the marine-obsessed minimalist, opt for a pristine, light-colored living room with a crisp, white sofa. Accessorize this airy space with a nautical rug that’s reminiscent of Cape Cod and the iconic Northeast beach towns.

Monochromatic enthusiasts can stick to sandy shades for understated warmth. Add metallic gold details that mimic the sparkling sea while still sticking to a neutral color scheme.

Turquoise and coral shades are ideal for the trendy homeowner who wants to put a twist on tradition. These colors are super modern and highly versatile, not to mention visually pleasing.

If you haven’t quite pinned down your overall aesthetic, go for blue and white stripes. They’re always a winning choice among beach themed wall decor ideas.

Go Glam with Your Feet in the Sand

Beachy style is inherently easy and breezy, but there’s nothing wrong with adding a luxurious touch to your interior.

Don’t be afraid to accessorize with a seaside scheme. The smallest accessories can take your home from simply cozy to resort-level relaxation. Glamor can be understated and exciting at the same time. 

It doesn’t get more nautical than antique cage lights. Go for bronze metals and exposed bulbs to capture the essence of a ship at sea.

Another excellent accessory is pearls! Hangs strands of pearls practically anywhere to create truly a lavish living space that still fits your theme.

Create a nightstand with vintage steamer trunks and suitcases. Try replacing your lamp with a vintage lantern for some serious beachy bliss.

Create a Nautical Focal Point

Every room needs a centerpiece, and we have a plethora of beach wall decor and accessory ideas. Use turquoise-toned seaglass for a chic addition to any area.

A bowl filled with shimmering shells makes for a great conversation piece, and branches of driftwood work well as wall hangings.

Mermaids aren’t just for kids! There are tons of mermaid-adorned accessories that are elegant and classy. Look for ornate vintage pieces that incorporate sirens and sea creatures.

Set miniature sailboat replicas on an empty shelf for a truly nautical atmosphere, or choose wall art with a tropical view as a focal point. 

Other nautical wall-hangings include metal anchors, images of lighthouses, and fish-themed art.

Gung-Ho for Grey

It’s no secret that grey is popular in modern décor. It’s super versatile and ultra-chic. Grey is also an excellent shade to compliment beachy blue and white.

Grey is a great addition to any room. It blends seamlessly with shades such as seafoam green, baby blue, and bright white.

From your floor to your ceiling, grey is an excellent base color. Grey tile is totally timeless and soft grey walls are beautifully understated. When you go with grey, you can’t go wrong!

Breezy, Bright, and Lots of Light

One of the most important elements for a beach-inspired interior is light-colored wood. Incorporating soft shades of wooden details is a great way to go nautical without going overboard (pun-intended.) Wood can counteract the cool tones and give just the right amount of warmth.

If you accessorize correctly, you don’t need to invest in all new furniture for a beachy interior. Light-colored throws and nautical pillows give just enough of a nod to the sea.

Use sheer, white curtains in your living room, and distressed rugs made of natural fibers on the floor. Daily life has never been brighter.

Sand is On Brand

Besides the sea, sand is the second most important element of the beach. Sand radiates a calming energy that promotes inner peace. Jars of sand or sand-inspired wall art can capture this source of serenity.

Use sandy shades to decorate your space. Beige candles, cushions, and throws are a great way to offset your oceanic details with sandy hues.

Beach house wall decor depicting a sandy shore is the perfect addition to your brand-new coastal cottage.

A Seaside Summary

Serenity has never been simpler when it comes to capturing the essence of a day at the beach. Make your living room a coastal retreat every day of the week with our curated selection of beach wall decor.
