We’ve already told you about ocean-inspired bathrooms and bedrooms, and now it’s time for one of the most important rooms in the house to hang out with friends and family – a living room! Rooms inspired by the coast, the beach and the ocean are so cute and cozy! Aqua, blue and turquoise are fantastic, bright and lift your mood! However, there is no need to paint your living room in cold shades if you don’t want to. Just choose warm beach-inspired colors and add accessories. Accessories and details are so amazing that I can’t stop thinking of such an interior for my own living space! Just look at these star fish, sea urchins, fish and clams and all the paintings with them, they are so tender and natural! But you can also add driftwood, sea glass, coral, and even boat models and flags. Check out some ideas below and get inspired!
Colors and materials
If you want to decorate your living room in a beach or coastal style, go neutral – brownish, cream, light gray, white, creamy, ivory. Bring pastel colors or blue accents: light blue, turquoise, aqua, teal, and navy. To make the room more catchy, add textures using jute, wood, rattan, leather, faux fur, velvet, and various wickerwork. Prints don’t make the room dull either: printed pillows, carpets, and curtains are your choices.
If you prefer a modern coastal style, go for modern furniture. If it’s a vintage beach go for vintage and shabby chic items, maybe whitewashed ones. Neutral furniture is your choice for a coastal space. Choose from white, brown, or creamy upholstery and add bold printed pillows in your chosen shades of blue. Go for rattan and wicker chairs that give the space an outdoor feel, go for a wooden coffee table and console, or use a wooden chest as a coffee table. You can also opt for leather furniture: stools, stools or sofas.
Beach or seaside decor is nothing without proper decor, it will help create an ambience. Go for gallery walls with photos, pictures, artwork, even corals and driftwood. Create display shelves with a variety of sea-inspired items. Driftwood and willow chandeliers and lamps, Roman willow shades, baskets for storage, driftwood mirrors and striped stools create a mood. Enjoy!
