Budget Beach Decorating
Take home these eight low-cost decorating ideas to give your space a clean, beachy style.
Mirrors, typically a smaller investment than art, double the views. Hang mirrors where they will reflect a pleasant image, such as artwork, a window, or a piece of furniture. Whether you use one as a headboard, a mantle backdrop, or to line the back of open shelves, a mirror will create the illusion of increased space.
Keep it light.
Accessorize with reflective surfaces such as stainless steel, glass, and silver. Swap dark lampshades for white or cream to help fill the room with space-expanding light. Torchiere lamps create the illusion of added height by illuminating the ceiling and drawing the eye up. Small glass-topped tables add visual space and exhibit a sleek, simple look. To achieve an inexpensive, intriguing design for side tables, secure two wine crates together, and top with heavy, finished glass.
