We've already told you about sea-inspired bathrooms and bedrooms and now it's time for one of the most important rooms in the house where you gather with friends and family - a living room! Coastal, beach and sea-inspired spaces are so cute and cozy! Aqua, blue and turquoise are fantastic, bright and raise your mood! But it's not necessary to make 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 those star fish, sea urchins, fish and shells and all the paintings with them, they are so delicate and nature-like! But you may add drift wood, sea glass, corals and even boat models and flags. Look at some ideas below and get inspired!
Colors And Materials
If you wanna decorate your living room in beach or coastal style, go neutrals - tan, off-white, light grey, white, creamy, ivory. Bring in pastels or go for blue touches: light blues, turquoise, aqua, teal and navy. To make the space more catchy, add textures with jute, wood, rattan, leather, faux fur, velvet and various wicker items. Prints will make the space non-boring, too: printed pillows, rugs and curtains are your choice.
If you prefer modern coastal style, go for contemporary furniture, if it's a vintage beach space, prefer vintage and shabby chic items, maybe whitewashed ones. Neutral furniture is your choice for a coastal space, choose white, tan or creamy upholstery and add bold printed pillows in the shades of blue you've chosen. Go for rattan and wicker chairs that will bring an outdoor feel to the space, take a wooden coffee table and console or go for a wooden chest as a coffee table. You may also go for leather furniture: ottomans, stools or sofas.
Beach or coastal decor is nothing without proper decor, it will help to create an ambience. Go for gallery walls with photos, pics, artworks, even corals and driftwood. Make display shelving with various sea-inspired items. Driftwood and wicker chandeliers and lamps, wicker Roman shades, baskets for storage, driftwood mirrors and striped ottomans are welcome to create a mood. Enjoy!
