Interior Design as Web Design Inspiration: The Beach Style Living Room

Beach Style Living Room by Jacksonville Interior Designers & Decorators Andrew Howard Interior Design

“Beach style” usually makes me think of seashell art and decorative anchors. But this is not that.

No, this living room is like a gust of fresh air. Delicious. Bright. It’s a great source of inspiration for a website.

The color palette: blue, green, taupe and white. And then—to keep things interesting—occasional pops of pink watercolor flowers. Big ones. And, because our inspiration is beautiful but still totally casual, we could use a hand-written script font for the large headings.

We end up with a seriously feminine web design stylesheet. Perhaps not the right choice for selling men’s razors? But the kind of design that would work beautifully for a business with a specific kind of customer—people who are attracted to that original living room image. (For the record, I’m one of those people.)

Interior designers…

Do you have a room in your portfolio that could inspire some digital design? Drop me a note. I’d love to feature your work in this series.

Everyone else…

Do you also think of terrible, cheesy things when someone says “beach style”? Or is it because I’m a child of the Jersey Shore? Do beach houses in other places look like this?
