Ocean, Beach, Tropical, Coastal – whatever you call your Decor – it’s the time of year for a re-fresh!

Posted by Kelly


The Beach Style has many names, but the features are all very similar – casual durable fabrics, natural accents, water inspired paint themes – and that relaxing summer mood that is a pleasure to enjoy. You don’t have to live near a coast or body of water to live with a coastal room or home – you just have to like it! If you love the calming effect of this style of decorating, then it’s time to makeover a room – or perhaps your house! Coastal Living Magazine and HGTV are two great resources for beachy decorating inspiration. The Lazy Gator along the Hammock Coast in  South Carolina is also a great place to get ideas and go home with many of the accents you need for your transformation. Our  Murrells Inlet store has a very large area dedicated to this style of decor. We have a unique assortment of local art, lamps, home accessories, frames, nautical items – and SHELLS! A large piece a coral makes a striking centerpiece in any coastal room, and you will find some perfect choices from our private collection. You will see all sorts of capiz shell wind chimes that are perfect for a porch or near a window. You can change the entire look and feel of your kitchen just by choosing towels, placemats, and serving pieces within the same color family. It’s an easy way to make a big impact!!

So which room in your home can you picture with a coastal re-fresh? What colors will you choose? Will you call your room Beachy, Coastal, Tropical, Nautical or something else? Why are you waiting any longer for your own summer retreat? Now is the time for action – and before long you will be relaxing in your new coastal space along with everyone else who loves their ocean inspired spaces!

Is that an umbrella drink in your hand?
