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.
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 2: Incorporate a variety of textures including wicker, seagrass, glass accents and wood.
Tip 3: Incorporate green plants to show life in the room
Tip 4: Add decorative organic elements such as coral, driftwood, unique shell pieces, marble, stone, wood and roping accents.
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.
You may also remember my friends house below, where I shared how to create a coastal living room on a budget.
You will notice below in her space that I used using similar colors as well to achieve the Coastal look.
Our family room last summer is also an example of a Coastal space using a variety of whites, blues and browns.
5 Tips to Nail a Navy Blue Coastal Living Room
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.
