Just because you don't live near the beach doesn't mean that you can't bring a little slice of the shore into your home. If you love the ocean and you can't bear to be apart from it for an extended period of time, why not create a nautical theme in your living spaces? With the right discount window treatments, furnishings and wall art, you can be on your way to a beachy lifestyle in no time.

Starting with your windows

To instantly create the feeling that you're on the shore, allow more natural light to flow into your space, whether it's your bedroom or living room. Fit the theme with bamboo window shades if you're interested in giving the space a more tropical feeling, or opt for thick wood blinds to develop a New England oceanside look. The window treatments you choose can set the tone for the rest of your interior design.

Selecting beachy furnishings

When you think of a beach house, wicker chairs and tables might come to mind. Even if you aren't keen on the idea of decking out your room with wicker, it's important to stick with the idea that lighter is better for nautical themes. Bulky, oversized furniture can quickly erase your efforts to create a breezy, relaxing beach-inspired room by weighing it down. Try to opt for couches, tables and chairs in light colors to open up the space and make it feel more welcoming.

Painting your walls

There are certain colors that simply evoke a feeling of the ocean - sea foam green, sky blue, sandy beige - and it's important to incorporate these into the space. The easiest way to truly give your room a beachy feeling is to apply these hues to the wall. Grab your paintbrushes and get going!

Adding finishing touches

Of course, you'll want to add some decorative pieces to the room to keep the beach close in your heart every time you're in the living space. Think of placing seashells around the area or bringing in scented candles that remind you of the ocean breeze. If you have any art that depicts scenes of the beach or the sea, don't hesitate to put them up on your freshly painted walls to bring your interior design together.Adding finishing touches
