Nothing makes a beach house statement more than slipcovered furniture, ideally in cotton duck cloth. These are easy to slip on and off for seasonal cleaning.

Lastly, complete the ambience inherent to Myrtle Beach oceanfront condos with sea-inspired fragrances. Use a fragrant mist and strategically place aromatic candles and potpourri for a heady scent that will make everyone imagine waves lapping against the shore.
