Fake An Ocean View With Art

Bring the outdoors in with a seaside-inspired print.

If you don't have a beachfront view, create one with contemporary art or photography depicting sun, sand and surf. Purple is calming paint option for bedrooms, especially when paired with crisp white linens.

For more beachy and nautical rooms, see our Seaside-Inspired Interiors photo gallery.
