Surround yourself with beachy bliss on your patio

Your outdoor room doesn't need to face the ocean to have a soothing seaside feel. By combining a few key colors and textures you can create coastal charm anywhere. A beach inspired palette starts with neutrals that reflect the natural environment: white sand, shimmering sea foam, and barely saturated neutrals. Then layer shades of blue to emulate sunny skies and clear water. Including coastal textures will help build the atmosphere: weathered-smooth wood seating, fibrous nautical rope, woven seagrasses, and oiled metal lighting fixtures. Top off the look with an accent piece featuring a classic coastal icon: a starfish rug, a seashell fire pit, or a ship's wheel throw pillow.
