6. Beachy and Breezy Welcome

Swap your traditional pine wreath this winter with a beautiful coastal-inspired wreath and welcome mat to greet your guest. By having these at the entrance of your home will set the tone for the rest of your interior Christmas home decorations.

7. Add a touch of sparkle

No matter how you are decorating your home this Christmas, having some sparkle is a must. Swapping your traditional decor with coastal accents does not mean you need to skip the gorgeous sparkles and glitters. Showcase some shimmering this winter through your decor items.

8. Go with Natural Coastal accents

By having coastal-inspired accents around the house will add a more coastal vibe to your space. These accents don't necessarily have to be Christmas themed. It can be something that you can use in your home year-round, such as coral and starfish in a bowl as a beautiful centerpiece.

9. Opt in for tropical green

One of the cheapest ways to decorate your house with a coastal vibe is to add tropical plants. Whether you are adding faux tropical plants or live ones, you will get an instant tropical vibe to your space. When picking out plants, go with something like palms, monstera, bird of paradise, or fiddle leaf. It adds a unique tropical touch to your home while offering you a relaxing vibe.

10. Go With A Unconventional Tree

If you dare, go with an unconventional Christmas tree this year to go with your tropical theme. If you are working with a limited budget, you can buy a medium-size palm tree and use it as your new Christmas tree. The palm tree will not only provide a tropical vibe, but you can save money on buying another tree.
