Even if you don’t live near the water, beach themed decorating can evoke memories of fun days on the beach or lake. Calming and tranquil, relaxed and laid back, are words that conjure these feelings. Utilizing a few tips and tricks can create that beachy feeling and make you feel like you are on vacation year round.
