Decorating a blue coastal living room like a professional designer can be really easy if you follow these steps. This living room I am about to share with you is a room that I created for Homegoods a few years ago and I decided to break down each decorating step so you can also get this look. Mixing and matching warm weathered brown tones with a variety of blue shades will help you get this look in no time.

5 Tips: Navy Blue Coastal Living Room Design

I always so thankful to the HomeGoods team for allowing the photographer on set, shoot a picture of me in the rooms I design. As you know, I am a DIY girl and have no interior design background so for me, I am always relieved and sometimes so surprised at how good the rooms come out. -ha. Sometimes when the rooms are complete I am like, “omg, I did that? I love it!” -haha

Tip 1: Start with a color scheme revolving around natural Coastal colors, white, blues, greens and browns.

Tip 5: Utilize throw pillows in baskets, on the sofa and chairs in a variety of blues, greens and light browns. By mixing patterns with solid color pillows, you will achieve visual appeal. You will notice for this space, the sofa pillows are all in the blue family but have different textures and patterns.

These 5 Tips to Nail a Navy Blue Coastal Living Room are all doable and affordable. You don’t need to have the exact items I used but a similar color scheme in a variety of home decor accents will help you achieve this look. Last year was such a cluster for me trying to work full time on the blog, prop styling for brands and helping take care of my grandparents. Then my gram’s  cancer diagnosis that led to her passing, the blog kind of took a back seat and things that I wanted to share, didn’t get shared. So this year, it’s clean up time and I am doing my best to get caught up. We have lots of fun things coming on the horizon including a brand new web design which will make it so much easier to navigate our site and a big move to another house. 

Disclosure: I was compensated to design this room by HomeGoods at one of their off site photography studios.  All images are owned by HomeGoods.

    All of the designs are pretty but the one that really takes me away is the living room you spoke of, ” Last year I designed a Navy Blue Coastal Living Room for HomeGoods at one of their offsite photography studios…” Awesome job!! Your family room is pretty sweet as well. Thanks for the “coastal vacation”. Love your blog and all the sweet posts about your family!! 🙂

  2. Love, love, love this room! You may not have studied to become an Interior Designer, but you certainly design like one. I have used many of your ideas and hints ever since subscribing to your Newsletter. I love the Coastal design. We live on a lake, and though not on the coast, we love living near the water and incorporating the same ideas and suggestions.
    Keep up the good work Jessica.
