More than 85% of Australians live within 50 kilometres of the sea, so it’s no surprise that many want to emulate the feeling of beachside living. Here’s how to do it, to get that quintessential Australian feeling of living by the beach and year-round summer.
Actually move to the beach!
In order to pursue beachside living, why not move to the beach if you’re already considering starting a new life? Land for sale near Caloundra on the Gold Coast gives you affordable coastal living, while being connected to all the amenities of nearby urban centres like the Gold Coast and Brisbane. Connected living is important, and master-planned communities can give you the convenience that you need and deserve.
Style a newer home to your tastes
When you build a home in a master-planned community such as Harmony, you are able to tailor the styling and design of a home to your tastes. Want open plan living? A professional builder can help you achieve that. If you want to style your home in a beach-like way, you can have a say in paint palettes to echo that of the ocean. We’d suggest baby blues and aqua, paired with pale yellows, cream and white colours. Pair it with some tiles or floorboards and you can bring the outside in even more. And if all else fails, jump on Pinterest to save your inspiration for later use!
Bring the beach to you
Go to the beach and collect seashells and ocean memorabilia, to decorate your home in a beach themed way. You can add ocean scents and put beach themed art or photography on the walls. By getting a little creative and taking the time to engage in some crafts, you can not only reflect the beach; you can reflect a piece of your own personality. Home decoration is important so tune into your intuition to know what you’d like to purchase to decorate your home with.
By learning to find elements of ocean themed decor that reflect your own personality too, you can create a home design and lifestyle that reflects you as a person. Your home space should reflect your personality and your needs in a way that makes you happy, and living near the beach is one great way of doing that. However, even if you don’t live near the beach, you can make your home still have that coastal essence! Good luck to you on your home styling journey!
