Beach houses are generally places where we are rarely alone. We usually receive friends, families, to have some relaxing time, fun and to rest as well. informality, fun and warmth. All these elements must be analysed when decorating it.

Outdoors

When we talk about an open, airy environments that will be the place where people will be spending most of the time, it’s also important to think about the correct size of furniture. Balance and proportion are necessary to avoid that feeling of discomfort and overcrowded environments.

But of course, when using creativity and good decor tricks, you can make the most of it. In addition, a hallway is a place in the house that works as the entrance to your world, it is not necessary to be afraid of strong colours or more unusual decorative objects.

Just always remember that the first and most fundamental tip is to make sure that whatever you’re planning doesn’t take up too much space. After all, it is a space used for passing through. With that in mind, check out some ideas that show you how to decorate a hallway of any size.

Monochromatic

Monochromatic is something quite personal. The technique itself creates an environment with a lot of personalities. When combined with the carpet coloured in shades it can guarantee a very fun environment.

Choosing two colours: one for the sidewalls and another for the back wall can be another idea to give more life to the space.  As well as when applying it to the ceiling, the colours can certainly make the ceiling look higher.

Mirrors

The use of mirrors makes a big difference in this environment, bringing more natural light and much more spaciousness to the space.

By placing a mirror at one end, facing the opposite wall, the passage seems much longer. Natural light is enhanced by the round mirror, with golden edges to decorate with the decorative objects on the shelf. Mirrors are winners!

Wall Artwork

The trick gives a more personal touch to the environment and can be done either with magazine clippings or with original drawings and watercolours. To make the rider even fresher, why not leaving one of your favourite accessories or pieces of furniture there too?

Scandinavian Style

Scandinavian style is always about being simple and essential. If you combine the right colours such as green and black, the result can be a nice surprise.

The dark palette of blacks and greens immediately connects to the environment at the side, with a heavier Scandinavian accent, which works the same colours, but in a different way: green completely covers the wall while black mixes with white on a floor with geometric patterns. The result is cool and elegant.

White was always a colour that is considered easy to match. It goes with everything. Most Scandinavian rooms tend to have a white background, which makes perfect sense.

This kind of style itself largely adopts neutral tones to maximise natural light and this is an idea that works perfectly in the small dining area.

This connects you with the space around you, gives you design flexibility and allows you to easily switch to a different style in the future.

Adaptable

The Scandinavian style is quite adaptable. The neutral base of the Scandinavian style allows it to be combined with others in a very natural way.  

It allows you to experiment with different decorations, seasonal tones, and trending patterns with ease.

Space is everything when it comes to Nordic design. The work between form and functionality ensures that the house following this style maximises the available space.

The use of adaptable furniture can be a way to ensure that the style works even when there are visitors; Using furniture such as folding tables, which can be closed, or round tables, which allow you to place chairs without consuming additional space, for example.

Simple Silhouettes

Simple and charming silhouettes are a quite impressive combination. Unlike Provencal, Scandinavian has simple lines and straight lines that even highlight geometric shapes. The less far-fetched and cleaner it is, the better. So, it’s easy to form the combinations, isn’t it?

Clean Furniture

Clean and improvised furniture is one of the greatest features of the Scandinavian decoration. If we can use furniture that is composed of different styles in an improvised and balanced composition, we will have an amazing result in interior design. How can we go wrong with it?

In addition to furniture with simpler and straighter lines, wood is also very common in Scandinavian decor. Below you can see a room with Scandinavian decor where the wooden furniture matches the Gray sofa and striped rug.

Perfect Composition

It’s impossible not to fall in love with this kitchen, which mixes materials and light hues. The environment is part of a small apartment with integrated environments and is beautiful with its minimalist woodwork and no handles.

The countertop and half of the wall received a granite with a grey background, which served as the basis for the accessories that follow the same neutral palette.
