Bringing the tranquil beauty of the coast into your home has never been easier with the right furnishings. A coastal-inspired living room embraces a laidback lifestyle that is perfect for relaxation and entertaining guests. The key to creating a coastal living room is to strike a balance between comfort and style. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to create your dream coastal living room with some of our favorite pieces.
Step 1: Choose a neutral colour palette
The coastal living room should have a light, airy and neutral colour palette. A mix of soft blues, greens, grays, and whites will give you that relaxed, beachy feel. This colour scheme creates a serene and calming atmosphere, perfect for unwinding after a long day.
Step 2: Pick a comfortable and stylish sofa
A comfortable and stylish sofa is the centrepiece of your living room. The Cloud Modular is the ultimate sofa for a coastal living room, with its 100% goose feather-filled cushions encased in soft cream linen. Three separate modular pieces (corner, armless and ottoman) offer endless configurations to fit your space.
Step 3: Add a statement coffee table
The Hampton Coffee Table is the perfect addition to your coastal living room. This stunning oversized coffee table has a crisp white timber frame, cross detailing, practical shelving and a glass top, offering a timeless, classic look.
Step 4: Bring in some art
Adding wall art is a great way to personalize your living room and create a focal point. The Santorini View Square is an ocean-inspired artwork print that captures the surreal Caldera views in Santorini.
Step 5: Add a coastal-inspired accent chair
Use armchairs with natural materials like rattan and linen to add freshness to your living room. The Marseille Armchair is a rattan armchair with beige upholstered seating for extra comfort. This elegant and stately armchair will add a touch of sophistication to your coastal living room.
Step 6: Accessorize
Add the finishing touches to your coastal living room with decorative pillows, a throw blanket, and some vases. Consider adding a few nautical-themed accents such as seashells or starfish to really tie the whole room together.
