10 Rustic Beach Decor Ideas That Will Inspire You
1.Pastel color beach homes
Santa Rosa, Florida has this tiny community called Watercolor. We rented this home for our summer vacation. The homes were absolutely stunning, one prettier than the other. What made it special was each home exterior was painted a water-color shade. My Beach rental was painted a lilac color. So if you love coastal living decor then read on to my 10 rustic beach decor ideas that will inspire you.
2.Large front porches
For a few months prior to my vacation, I was searching for the perfect beach home which was not going to be too far to drive. I wanted beautiful beaches and clear water. A friend told me about Santa Rosa and said that the beaches were similar to the Caribbean. The drive was only 6 1/2 hours.
Through VRBO I found the perfect beach home for my family. It had a large front porch filled with beach style furniture such as rattan rocking chairs and a lovely rattan table with a large basket on the center of the table filled with beach shells from the local beaches.
3.Natured inspired accessories
This vacation home was designed for large families. It had a big entrance and the decor was to swoon over. There was a large shelf for beach hats and bags. A beautiful reclaimed cabinet piece. I was right at home with the painted driftwood pieces in white, the pine-cones placed in a wire basket and oyster shell decor pieces placed in all the right places.
4. Lots of natural elements and beach style furniture
The white beaded chandelier in the foyer and the rustic furniture made the entrance so impressive. It was the highlight of the space.
5.Warm tones of color!
To keep the chic look throughout the home! The dining room was designed with a large round black table. The table was the right size for a large family, it sat 6 to 7 people comfortably. White slipcovered dining chairs matched beautifully with the beautiful beaded chandelier. Check out the miniature cowhide on the table.
6.Lots of shiplap walls and reclaimed wood is perfect to create rustic beach decor.
There were 5 bedrooms all beautifully decorated. My favorite was the bedroom with twin beds. The white twin head-boards were darling and the aqua colors for the bedding with the white sheets just screamed beach! I love the coral reef lamp!
8.Add pillows that have ocean theme elements on them such as a starfish.
There was some unusual artwork on the walls. The pear with a black background was pretty interesting since many of the rooms had black, white and touches of color. I wasn’t sure if I was liking the pear but the more I spent in this home I can understand why the decorator picked that piece.
10.Lots of storage space.
The best part of this beach home was the kitchen. I love cooking and a big kitchen was what sold me on renting this. Not only did it have a big kitchen it had an outdoor kitchen and fire pit as well. It’s tough going out to dinner with 6 adults and 2 babies. So I stocked up and everyone helped prepare something. The best part of this kitchen was the large built-in cabinet glass hutch. Everything I needed was there. It was wonderful having everyone gather around the table and eat.
Next time you want to visit the beach check out Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. September was a perfect month to go the traffic was light and the beaches were not packed. If you are interested in this home for your next beach getaway check out VRBO

Beautiful home! I love the exterior color and the two-story porches. I love the pear painting – something about that dark background caught my eye. I chuckled at your comment about it and how it grew on you! I’ve never heard of the of community “Watercolor” but it sounds like a charming place to visit!
Thanks! If you ever get a chance go there! Its just amazing place with no high rises and September is a great month to go hardly any traffic on the RT 10! It is Hurricane season, but they will let you use another week in case a hurricane hit like its happening this week.
Wow… this is gorgeous! Great inspiration… thanks for sharing, Maria!
Hope the house I stayed survived Hurricane Micheal, its hitting in that area! Maria
Oh, I love the two-story porches and the exposed rafters! My eyes especially love the bedroom with all those blue hues playing against the white. Thanks for sharing, Maria!
Thanks so much for stopping by! you are so sweet!
I know this house was so pretty! I hope it survived Hurricane Micheal! I was there two weeks ago and now there is a Hurricane there! Hope everyone is ok.
Everything is so pretty and most of all relaxing. You come in here and just want to sit down and put your feet up. Beautifully done Maria!
Thanks Mary! You know they are getting hit by Hurricane Micheal. I was lucky I did not go there this weekend.
What a gorgeous beach home and I love the simple decor! Hope that it doesn’t have damage from Hurricane Michael.
Me too! I keep looking to see if any damage! Mexico Beach is further south around 45 minute and they got surge that reached up to the beach homes roofs. I am sure that there was damage in the area I stayed. Maria
A beautiful home! We are building a home in Miramar beach and I live the ideas here! I love the white beaded chandelier in the foyer. Do you have a shop or can share where it came from?
Hello Patty, Thanks for stopping by. Here is a beaded lighting fixture that is very similar to the one at the beach home. I also have this one in my home.https://www.potterybarn.com/products/7755940/?catalogId=84&sku=7755940&clickid=3q2VDTQHmxyJRi-wUx0Mo382UklXoORDS0gyz40&irgwc=1&cm_cat=116548&cm_ven=afshoppromo&bnrid=3317500&cm_ite=&cm_pla=ir&irpid=116548
