Noth­ing says coastal sum­mer quite like the com­bi­na­tion of weath­ered whites and rus­tic tex­tures. If you’re look­ing to up­date your sea­sonal dé­cor with a splash of sum­mer, here’s how to in­cor­po­rate a few sim­ple sea­side accessories to freshen up any room.

COOL COLOR COMBO

Slip­cov­ers have a great way of adding easy sum­mer style. Whether it’s a sofa, a chair or even an ot­toman, add a ca­sual white can­vas slip­cover to in­cor­po­rate a re­laxed vibe. Then change out your accessories to in­clude more white and blue—from pil­lows and throws to trays and frames.

WEATH­ERED WOOD

Drift­wood ac­cents are a no-fail way to add a beachy touch. We also love white chippy-painted fur­ni­ture. Here white­washed crates be­come clever wall shelves to dis­play a host of beach-themed art and ob­jects.

EARTHY EL­E­MENTS

Glass and or­ganic ce­ram­ics are a won­der­fully fresh way to add a touch of sea­side ap­peal to a room. Look for seeded glass ac­cents for a truly hand­made look and feel. And opt for ce­ram­ics with lots of tex­ture and some tribal in­flu­ence in muted or monochro­matic col­ors, for an up­dated and mod­ern take on these time­less pieces.
