If you are looking for inspiring ideas to decorate a room in your house, then maybe you want to think about Nova Scotia. Nova Scotia is part of Canada and has a rich diverse culture, having indigenous people from around the world that live there. It is also the world’s number one exporter of Christmas trees, but perhaps the biggest influence it has on inspiring decorating ideas, is the coastal one. Nova Scotia has a lot of coastline, which is very different depending on where you are, but will give you several ideas for a coastal styled room.
If you want to achieve the look and the feeling of the coast, you will no doubt think of tranquillity as the sea gently laps on the shoreline. If you close your eyes for a moment you will be able to imagine the different colours that are associated with the sea and the beach, such as the soft yellow of the sand and the different changes of the blues and greens of the sea. You might even bring to mind the colours that are present when the sun sets, and how the sky turns a radiant orange and red. You may wish to incorporate some of these colours and emotions into the room you are thinking of decorating and if you do, at the same time using a little bit of imagination, you should end up with a beautifully inspired room.
For many years having a beach theme or a coastal style in a home was actually only done in homes that were near to or on the beach, or perhaps sometimes a bathroom in a home was done in this style. Nowadays, you will find that more and more people are bringing in this coastal and beach style to wherever they live, so even if you live in a large city and are miles from the beach, you will still be able to bring in that sense of freedom and light, by decorating in this style.
One of the most important elements in decorating in this way is to keep it simple and tasteful, at the same time having a feel of class about it. You don’t want to go over the top otherwise you will run the risk of making a room seem kitsch and in the end that will just make the room seem uncomfortable. Also you will need to think about the other items in your room, for example, if you are decorating your bedroom, you need to take into account your furnishings, and the colour they are.
You might like to think about getting a bed in a bag set that will go with the coastal theme you have in mind. Or you could hone in focusing on your bedroom curtains which, if made from sheer silk curtain fabric will billow softly in the breeze as you open your windows.
