When spending time thinking about summer and Beach Bungalows, the mind almost always wanders to using kitschy decorations, color pallets and more to push the theme of “beach house.” We all end up thinking of the stereotypical beach house, the one with the crab cages for tables, sea shells on the walls, and bright pastel colors. It’s quite easy to overdo it with the style.
Let’s take a look at some designs that evoke the feeling of a beach bungalow without over-the-top decor and colors.
This stairway uses roping and dock cleats as a nice subtle touch for accenting the room. Its use of textured rope and off-white paint is a quaint reminder of a marina.
The use of a piece of driftwood creates a unique discussion piece in any entryway.
This bright kitchen’s use of color and texture is great for evoking feelings of summer and a beach getaway. The kitchen island’s use of textured wood pulls the design theme together.
This kitchen’s use of custom lighting is inspired by antique diving equipment. Paired with wicker chairs, it acts as a bold statement piece in the room.
The worn metal on this night stand, and mirror, stand out visually resembling items you might find at a dockyard, worn down over time by salt water.
