Summer House Ideas: How to Decorate a Beach Apartment

A summer house is a place where people usually go on holidays during the hot months of summer – a place to unwind, have fun and forget the day-to-day problems and worries. Therefore, its decoration must be in tune with this idea of relaxing away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Colour combos using blue

In this sense, the strategic use of colours and materials is of fundamental importance, since they determine the final aesthetics of the place. Think nautical, and bring a piece of the seaside into your home, using subtle shades of blue, bright white and natural accents, as you can see in this charming apartment located right on the edge of the sea in Valencia, Spain.

Adding natural light to every room

Lastly, it is necessary to consider the amount of natural light coming into every part of the house throughout the day – including the bathroom. This room is usually small and, in many cases, it doesn’t have any windows. In this regard, a good idea to avoid feeling oppressed inside is to put a window that connects the bathroom to the next room, as you can see in the picture below. This architectural trick will make your bathroom look bigger and have more light, which will help you to save energy and feel more comfortable during your vacation.
