Enhance your pool house or beach house décor with wonderful reminders of water and fun, or bring the beach or pool to your home if the best you can do is to dream of fun in the sun beside or in the water. Pictures, bed clothing, and signs might not be enough to bring the ocean to you but they can combine to make a place in your home that will bring fond memories or feed the dreams of sand beneath the feet, the beating sun from above, with cool water splashing around ankles as you enter the surf.
Signs and Plaques
Often constructed of wood or metal, a sign or a plaque can be a reminder of fun times to be had at the beach. Getting in the water and being completely wet all over on a hot summer day is unparalleled fun for just about anyone. If that isn’t possible, a wall hanging is a fun reminder.
Word Art on Canvas
Not suitable for outdoors, but an excellent choice for the lobby or room next to a pool, word art on canvas can be very appropriate. The word art can be short messages, safety reminders or rules for games that can be played in the pool.
Sleeping in the Motion of the Ocean
Keep that fun in the sun feeling with you all year long with digitally printed duvet sets that show scenes from the beach. Enjoy the comfort of your climate-controlled bedroom, while looking at a huge mural that shows a lovely ocean scape.
