I live in Florida. Many people move here from a northern state, and think they have to change their home decor to "beachy" and "seaside." NOT! Please do not do this. In a short time you will regret doing this, because your home will look like almost everyone elses. Ordinary and boring.
I cleaned a gorgeous condo, on the beach, here in Vero Beach Florida. The owners had moved here from Arizona. Their furnishings were high end, and spoke of the Western way of decorating. Kilim and Indian rugs, Kilim on sifas and chairs, Western inspired furniture. It was just gorgeous! They have ceiling to floor windows in every room, looking out on either the ocean or the Bay. It was simply lovely. The owners told me they wanted to get rid of all their "Arizona" style stuff and go to a "beachy feel." I told them they should not do that and I hope they didnt!
You have to go with what you LOVE and nothing else. It does not matter where you live. If you choose furnishings, colors and decorative accents you really love, it will all work out in the end.
