Embrace the relaxed and rejuvenating essence of the beach with these subtle decor ideas. Incorporate woven textures like jute rugs and rattan furniture. Use a coastal color palette of sandy neutrals, soft blues, and sea greens. Display seashells, driftwood, or coral as natural accents. Hang sheer, breezy curtains to mimic the flow of ocean waves. Add nautical stripes through pillows, throws, or artwork. Bring in the scent of the beach with candles or diffusers. Use distressed, weathered wood for a rustic, beachy charm.

Ok so not so subtle! LOL I just love how rustic this also looks. A charmingly designed boat-inspired table should be the one to complete your beach home aesthetic.
