Embrace Beach Décor While Independent Living In St. Augustine, FL

From our sunny grounds in Westminster St. Augustine, you’re never far from the laidback fun of a proper beach day — or a splashing pool session even closer to home! Located in Florida’s oldest and most vibrant city, a love of the water is built into our lifestyle of independent living in St. Augustine, FL. And that’s a good thing for your mind and body! Studies show that exposure to natural blue spaces can help reduce stress and improve your overall wellbeing.

But if you simply can’t get enough of the beachy vibe, why not bring it into your home? Your Westminster St. Augustine apartment, villa, or patio home is the perfect place to adorn with coastal décor, accessories, and reminders of your favorite Florida landscape. Just read on as we share a few of our favorite ideas on how to do just that.

Opt For A Calming Color Palette 

One of the things we love best about the beach is the sense of calm that washes over you with every breeze and white-capped wave that rolls in. So naturally, this is a great place to start when implementing a beachy vibe in your Westminster St. Augustine home! Opt for a simple, sand- or ocean-inspired color palette whose shades of cream, driftwood, and coastal blue inspire you to relax and recharge to the fullest. These colors occur together in nature, so they’ll likely look wonderful in your bedroom or living space as well.

Show Off Beachy Souvenirs Of Yore

Whether you grew up in the Sunshine State or took vacations here growing up, there’s a good chance you have a few beachy souvenirs to show off — such as seashells, beach figurines, or sand bottles. Give them a designated space in your home’s décor to create a splash of surf-loving spirit wherever you need it!

Lean Into Maritime History

As we mentioned earlier, St. Augustine holds the distinction of being the oldest city in Florida. But did you know that it’s technically the oldest city in the entire country, too, even predating the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving? With all that being said, if you’re a history buff at heart, you might be looking for ways to infuse your space with old-world charm — and that actually goes hand in hand with the beach motif! Old nautical paintings, ship-in-a-bottles, and rustic wood accents that look like they’ve been pulled straight off a shipwreck are all charming ways to add maritime history to your space.

Take An Unexpected Turn

Sometimes, the best beachy accents are the least obvious. For example, while we love seashells and ship décor, you can also opt for unexpected flourishes of metallics that replicate the way the sun glimmers on the ocean’s surface. It will be an eye-catching addition your guests are sure to notice!

Add Your One-Of-A-Kind Perspective

Because we live so close to the water, why not snap some photos of your surroundings and turn them into wall art for your home? No one’s perspective is exactly the same, and it’s fun to bring your one-of-a-kind point of view into your space through beautiful photography.

One of the best parts about calling Westminster St. Augustine “home” is the ability to blend the easy nature of maintenance-free living with the independence of a space that’s totally you — and surrounding yourself with beachy décor is a great way to do that. We can’t wait to see where inspiration takes you!
