It is best to follow a few simple rules: recreate spaces that are in tune with the surrounding environment and match the ideal colors to the typical materials of the area.
A must for all seaside resorts is certainly to opt for furniture and textiles in light tones (white, blue, sand…) that give freshness to any environment. Alternate them with bright blue reminiscent of the sea and the summer sky and you will get a perfect seafaring effect.

Furnish the living room of the house by the sea
On vacation, the living room is no longer the fulcrum of the house, because in summer people tend to take advantage of the outdoor spaces, such as a patio or terrace overlooking the sea.
Consequently, what we recommend is to opt for one simple and functional environment.
How do you make it? In the living room of the beach house you can insert a sofa or sofa bed, two armchairs and a coffee table. If you choose to add a sideboard as well you could opt for massive furniture to give a second life: find a local antiques shop or a shabby chic furniture spot; perfect for finding opportunities of all kinds! Give the finishing touches with objects that recall the sea: decorative shells, polished stones, starfish and fish.
The floor of the living room must be resistant and with a relaxing effect, like a light stoneware with a wood effect. It must also be easy to clean because arriving from the beach and the sea inevitably brings some ‘brackish air’ from the outside.
The clever advice: to not go too dirty the living area, cut out a small space at the entrance where to leave straw bags, towels, hats and flip-flops.
If your seaside cottage is small, this space can simply be a corner with one bench containment and of hooks where to store items. It will be a beautiful decorative element that will enrich the style of the furniture.
Furnishing ideas for the kitchen of the beach house

Therefore this space must be well organised, small or large! Even with a limited budget the cuisine of the maritime refuge can be really interesting.
The furniture in the kitchen area will consist of a Spartan table and some wooden chairs. Add some shelves and storage cupboards that will make up the rest of the style.
Unlike the living room, the kitchen or dining area of the beach house does not provide for the enrichment of knick-knacks or other small decorative objects. The key word here is practicality!
If you are afraid of going overboard, you can turn to one of the giants of furniture: Ikea.
The brand offers you a variety of solutions and gives you the ability to customize the furniture with furniture in different colors and styles.
Finally, you can embellish your style by playing with fire zone tiles: le majolica in ceramic they match very well with seaside environments. Prefer those characterized by neutral colors and shades of blue.
