If you find that your heart skips a beat every time you see a photo of beautiful blue ocean water, you aren’t alone. Psychologists have known for years that the color blue has a special place in the mind. Studies show that blue is often associated with calming and relaxation. In fact, the color blue is so powerfully relaxing that it can even lower your heart rate, leaving you feeling calmer than ever! Adding ocean-themed decor allows you to bring the ocean into your home. This is a great way to promote calmness and serenity in your beach home.

One of the benefits of canvas prints is how lightweight they are. Most prints that you buy on Amazon also come with metal hanging hooks so they are ready to hang straight out of the box. 

Canvas prints come in many sizes. Buying a canvas print that is too large or too small can ruin the balance of your room or your next designing project. Before you start shopping for canvas prints, take some time to determine the size of canvas print would be best for the space you plan to display it.

To ensure a long life for your canvas print, there are a few guidelines and precautions to follow:

  • Keep your canvas prints away from direct sunlight
  • Keep away from humidity & moisture
  • Don’t forget to dust them occasionally with soft dusting techniques
  • Stay away from harsh chemicals
  • Place them upright
  • Don’t place anything on top of them

A new rug is a great way to change up the appearance of any room. Nature-inspired colors, such as white, beige, and brown, help to evoke calmness and relaxation. A blue and green color scheme creates an ocean feel and conveys peace and tranquility. For larger rooms, select a size that allows for all furniture to rest entirely on the rug. For smaller rooms, use a rug size that allows all furniture to be positioned off the rug or with only the front legs on the rug.
