Embrace Coastal Vibes: 3 Reasons to Bring Coastal Art and Decor into Your Home
June 19, 2023
Personally, I love the water. Maybe it is the Aquarius / Pisces cusp I sit on (if you're into that), but for as long as I can remember, being in and around water felt very comforting and therapeutic. It comes as no surprise then that I would choose watercolors as my medium of choice!
All kidding aside, the oceancan make you happier, healthier, more connected, and better at what you do. In his book, Blue Mind, Dr. Wallace Nichols discusses how the rhythmic sound of waves, the colors of the water, and the ever-changing coastal landscapes can stimulate the imagination and provide a fresh perspective.
Whether you live by the water or inland, if you're looking to infuse a sense of tranquility, serenity, and a touch of the seaside into your living space, coastal art might be the perfect choice.
Serene and Relaxing Ambiance: Coastal art has a unique ability to transport us to a tranquil seaside retreat, even if we're miles away from the coast. By displaying coastal-inspired artwork in your home, you can create a serene and relaxing ambiance that promotes a sense of calm and tranquility. The soothing color palettes, such as soft blues and sandy beiges, often found in coastal art evoke feelings of peacefulness and rejuvenation. Whether it's a serene beachscape, a gentle seascape, or delicate seashell motifs, coastal art brings a touch of serenity into your living space, making it a perfect choice for bedrooms, living rooms, or any area where you seek solace and relaxation.
Connection to Nature: Bringing coastal art into your home allows you to connect with the beauty of nature and the vastness of the ocean. Coastal-inspired artwork often features elements like crashing waves, sandy beaches, marine life, or coastal landscapes. These images serve as a reminder of the natural world and the calming effect it has on our well-being. They can evoke a sense of awe, wonder, and appreciation for the ocean's power and beauty. By surrounding yourself with coastal art, you can bring the refreshing and invigorating spirit of the seaside into your everyday life, fostering a deeper connection to nature.
Versatile and Adaptable Style: Coastal art offers a versatile and adaptable style that can complement a wide range of interior design aesthetics. Whether your home has a modern, traditional, bohemian, or eclectic style, coastal artwork can seamlessly integrate into any space. From realistic paintings to abstract interpretations, there is a vast array of coastal art options to suit your personal taste. You can choose large statement pieces for a focal point, or smaller, delicate artworks to add subtle coastal accents. Moreover, coastal art pairs well with natural materials like driftwood, wicker, and seashells, allowing you to create a cohesive coastal theme throughout your home.
