17 Living Rooms with Coastal Style
From colorfully modern to tastefully rustic, these spaces showcase the best of seaside decor. If you want to capture coastal style, you’ll find plenty of inspiration here.
Coastal CuesAdd character to your living area by thinking in layers rather than limiting your scheme to a single hue. A palette of sea-glass shades brings the beach indoors―even in a landlocked locale. Look for accent paints and fabrics in colors ranging from aqua to deep blue. Don’t stress about overdoing it: White board walls give the eye a place to rest and keep the look cohesive.
Outline your design. Call attention to a room’s architectural elements, such as trim and molding, by painting them a punchy hue. Give upholstered furniture a similar wake-up call with contrasting welting.
