Simple Autumn Coastal Beach Decorating Ideas that are inexpensive and easy!
Trying to make some lemonade over here at our beach home where life is back to normal after the scary and disruptive Hurricane Irma last week. Not a bad place to hang out for sure, but if you’ve never experienced hurricane force winds through the night and you are on the ocean…all I can say is wow! As I write this post there is STILL no power in our Miami home and we don’t yet if there is damage inside. A waiting game to head down there, and although I know from neighbors the outside property took a major blow….we sit. We wait. Until power is restored. All of this has made us think priorities and simplification of our lives…
Simple Autumn Coastal Beach Decorating Ideas
I have carefully chosen pieces in this home and just like yours…it’s a work in progress and evolves over time! I’m thrilled to be posting today as part of my friend Rachel of Maison de Pax’s FALL INTO HOME TOUR and if you are coming over from Shannon’s AKA Design, welcome in!
In terms of FALL DECOR, I really have nothing here…so in my thinking these days of LESS IS MORE I just foraged the post-storm beach and looked around in a couple of cabinets for what I could find as well. Do that…shop your home and rethink what you already own! I had the COBALT BOTTLE and found some SEA OATS that were broken off at the stems. Simple…and suggest fall at the beach. It all harkens back to Simple Autumn Coastal Beach Decorating Ideas and I’m sure that you can think of some of your own.
I enjoy sitting in my VINTAGE FRENCH CHAIR to read or work on my laptop and adding a NEEDLEPOINT PILLOW adds texture and warmth to suggest autumn. So does the cozy CABLE-KNIT THROW.
I recently redecorated the MASTER BEDROOM here in keeping with the French influence and a coastal theme. The floors are tile because we’ve had to replace them after a previous hurricane, and I added a NAVY DISTRESSED AREA RUG for fall warmth.
The damage from the storm here mostly took down a few trees and damaged plants, so I trimmed up this one and brought in some GOLDEN FOLIAGE for color.
More of the sea oats and sea grass picked up from the beach and some bougainvillea clipped from out in front. It is illegal to cut the protective barrier of sea oats, but these were broken off and laying on the sand from the wind.
The breakfast nook is my favorite place to work when I’m here and the touches are natural and few.
Crisp red apples in a vintage bowl, BLUE HYDRANGEAS in a WHITE URN that normally has a lid on it and a sea urchin serve as suggestions of fall in my mind.
