A visit to the shoreline can be one of the most relaxing, pleasurable and invigorating experiences our planet has to offer. Whether it’s a trip to the great and mighty ocean, a mysterious or tropical sea, or a local lake or inlet, spending time on the sand by the water is pure magic. That’s why millions of people make our beaches and coastal areas a premier vacation destination year after year.
But what can you do when you can’t get to the beach as often as you like? How can you enjoy all the beauty, peace and inspiration that comes with a coastal experience without actually tiptoeing through the sand? Perhaps there’s a way to bring the beach to you. In fact, we’re happy to inform you that you can create a pleasant beach vibe in your home, and we’ve put together a few ways to do just that. So, settle into your most comfortable beach chair, see if you can catch the sound of gentle winds and waves in the background, fix yourself a refreshing tropical drink, and have a quick peek at our 7 Beach Themed Decorating Ideas for Your Home.
Here’s a charming way to enjoy the beach ’round the clock! With each passing hour, you’ll hear the sound of soothing waves from this beach house-shaped wall clock.

Some of the best memories are made at the beach, and this scenic piece of wall art confirms it.
