While binging Big Little Lies on HBO, you might have noticed there’s a whole lot of gorgeous beach décor in between all that drama and intrigue.

If you’re aching to bring a little Madeleine, Celeste, Renata, or Bonnie style into your home, here are some easy options:
Shades of Blue

The combination of sea and sky is strikingly beautiful, ensuring a healthy market for expensive beachfront property for the foreseeable future. Recreate the look in your home by weaving shades of blue into your décor in varied applications. As a bonus, all that blue evokes a feeling of calm in the space — something Celeste could certainly use. Try:
Seafoam, navy, and everything in between
Mixing blues in patterns like floral, geometric, and abstract

As a bonus, all that blue evokes a feeling of calm in the space — something Celeste could certainly use. Try:Just like sand to sea, natural fibers complement bright blues perfectly and bring in an additional outdoor element. Add wicker or rattan furniture with soft, cozy cushions to your space, or store blankets in woven baskets for chilly nights. Finish the look with some plant life and Celeste’s sunroom will have nothing on your beach retreat. Try:

While Renata’s $12.4 million indoor/outdoor living area is out of reach for most of us, embracing the open air is one of the staples of beach living. Make it your own by connecting your deck or patio to your living room via glass doors, or simply open windows and use light curtains to let a little of the outdoors in. Try:
Big, open windows
Sliding glass or French doors

It’s a bit on the nose, but what’s a beach house without some attractive coastal detritus? The key is to keep the beachcomber-esque finds placed thoughtfully (but sparingly) around the space. Madeline’s dining room hits all the right notes. Try:
White & Bright

Beach overload? Ground all the blues and natural elements with a crisp and clean cooking space. Madeline’s kitchen makes excellent use of whitewashing to create an impressive statement skylight. Incorporate white and light wherever you can. Try:
Gauzy white curtains
Cream and taupe to complement the blue

If casual beach luxury isn’t your thing, you can still embrace nature without the seashells and azure accents. Bonnie’s sylvan escape utilizes wood, stone and greenery, creating a serene environment without a hint of water. Objects of sentimental importance and colorful knick-knacks round out the look of a truly lived-in space. Try:
