Dreaming of a Seaside Retreat

Hi, I'm Susi, a blogger for Design Shuffle, a site that promotes designers and their work from around the world. I'm lucky enough to get to guest blog at some amazing blogs around the world like Chamomile & Peppermint. While we in the Northern Hemisphere are getting ready for winter, you and some of your readers are lucky enough to be enjoying warmer days and summer right around the corner. Here are eight seaside style retreats to inspire you for the upcoming season. Enjoy these dreamy interior designs!

Seaside Retreat

Imagine waking up in this seaside retreat. The gorgeous bedroom opens onto a private veranda or patio. Love the mix of white and grey with a pop of turquoise.

This casual bedroom design would be perfect for a guest room in a seaside retreat. Natural materials, mosquito netting and grasscloth give the room a cool, breezy seaside style.

Seaside Retreat

Seaside retreats and seaside style is all about simple shapes and colors.  Love the oar above the windows as a nod to the water. The trunk provides storage and makes a casual coffee table.

Seaside Retreat

Crisp navy and white are classic colors for a seaside retreat.  Stripes and rattan are popular decorating ideas for seaside spaces. Stripes give the seating a casual vibe in this living room, while the rattan adds even more vintage appeal.

Seaside Retreat

This seaside retreat has an incredible view the moment you open the door. A sense of openness and views of the ocean give this retreat the best of seaside style.

Seaside Retreat

Texture and color abound in this seaside style living room design. Pink and green are a happy tropical color pairing that brings life to a room. Bamboo on furniture and blinds also adds a tropical touch.

Seaside Retreat

The bed in this room is a gorgeous example of seaside style.  A wall of curtains creates a soft counterpoint to the heavy wood of the canopy bed. A light color palette is perfect for seaside bedroom design dreams.

No seaside retreat would be complete without an outdoor living space. This gazebo is a lovely place to dream away an afternoon by the sea.
