A very important piece of any coastal living room must be the wall art. A wall gallery with carefully chosen paintings looks stunning, as it fills up the empty wall without closing up the room!
The sea has the most magnificent coloring. It can be dark blue or light turqoise, all depending on its depth and the way the light hits the water at any given moment. White often comes into the mix when the waves start foaming and the whole scenery is absolutely captivating. Bring these colors into your interior to fully capture the magic of the ocean!
If you don’t want many colors in your room and you’d rather keep the setting coherent and neutral, turn your living room into a calming space where every single element matches the color of the sand and so charms anyone who steps into it!
Where you place a plant in the sunroom is dependent on a lot more than aesthetics alone. Make sure that the plant receives the right amount of sunlight and warmth throughout the year, keeping it healthy and happy! Since there is often no shortage of natural light in the sunroom, you definitely have greater decorating freedom here. But some indoor plants grow better under direct light while others need plenty of shade. A rubber plant does well in the darker corners of the sunroom while succulents and additions like the snake plant thrive pretty much everywhere.
Reclaimed barn wood or old planks of wood from the attic given a new lease of life might not always fit in seamlessly with the aesthetics of a contemporary living rom. If you are looking for a finish that is far more urbane and classy, the accent walls in redwood, cedar or other locally sourced woods make a good option. The idea here is to cut back of excesses and to keep the visual appeal of the wooden accent wall minimal even while allowing the natural grace of wood to shine through. The more neutral the living room is, greater will be the impact of this woodsy composition.
If the interior of your living room is leaning towards neutral, choose some wooden elements to balance the scale and bring in some warmth and coastal vibes!
