For those lucky enough, having a beach side getaway can be one of the best ways to get away from the rigors of everyday life. However, if the living by the seas is not an option, The Independent reports there are several ways homeowners can recreate coastal living in their inland home.

The news source reports that one of the most important areas to consider when applying a nauticul theme is the color scheme. Experts recommend that lighter colors are the best way to go. Soft whites and blues can work well with ample natural light that can evoke the feel of a beautiful sunrise streaming in through the windows.

"[This] is a good example of how materials, colours and design can evoke the feeling of freshness and openness normally associated with life on the coast or even at sea. The ample light from the window is reflected from the polished wooden floor," design expert Stafford Cliff told the news provider.

Those looking to fill their home with natural light should consider hanging soft sheer shades, which offer an elegant feel to any room while providing an easy way to let light filter in.
