Deck the Mantel
Make the mantel the centerpiece of your room. It's the perfect place to display the festive feel of the holidays combined with the relaxed mood of the beach. We happen to love them both, especially when they work in harmony.
We love this premade seashell garland that you can find at craft stores like Michael's or Hobby Lobby. Use it as is or add some citrus to make it more tropical (
DIY tutorial found here). Your banister will be beachy and bright in no time.
Have a White Christmas
A white Christmas works well at the beach with its coastal color palette. Whether you opt for a white Christmas tree or you take inspiration from the sand and sea, letting white be your festive focal point works well in any beach home.
Have a Blue Christmas
Just like you have a white Christmas, you can opt for a blue Christmas, too. Pale coastal blues go with all the neutrals in your home and makes a beautiful accent for the holiday season. How you use it is up to you.
Roll Out the Red
If you're a holiday traditionalist, then you'll love incorporating red into your holiday spread. It can be simply done with poinsettias and a table runner, as seen in this photo. Roll out the red this holiday season to amp up the holiday feel.
Going green is an easy way to bring the holiday mood into your beach home. Simple garlands, wreaths, and pine boughs are beautiful and natural ways to celebrate the season and works well with any room's decor style.
Trim the Table
Setting up your table for the holidays is a fun and festive way to ring in the season. Make it special, make it unique. Whether you choose coastal colors or traditional holiday colors, be sure to make your table merry and bright.
Deck the Windows
You probably have some pretty amazing windows in your beach home. Use them to your decorating advantage! It doesn't take much but a simple wreath to add a touch of Christmas to your already gorgeous view.
Let the View Set the Scene
Your ocean view can be the star while you set the scene around it. It doesn't take much to reflect the natural hues and coastal colors that already surround you. Take a few hints from nature and follow that vibe this holiday.
Think Outside the House
It's really fun to take your holiday decor outdoors! Set up your outdoor space just as you would inside your home .Bring the holiday cheer by adding some decorative lighting. You may even decide to keep it out all year long!
