Welcome to a new series called SUNDAY STYLE that I’m starting on random Sundays. I’ll be offering design lists and tips and feature items that have attracted my eye. I’m at our beach home for a few days, so it’s befitting that this week it’s all about coastal living room design. I’m often asked where I purchased this or that and I’m happy to share when I can. Many of the pieces that have ended up at the beach home were flea market or yard sale finds. Mixed in with new it becomes a signature style and creates a look that is subtle.
I work with a budget like most everyone and spend more on what I feel needs to last. Obsessed with design and scouring the internet, I shop for possible redesign and for friends and work life. Others window shop online for clothing, shoes and handbags and then there are those of us who shop for decor items! If I could I would infuse coastal living room design in a subtle way to everyone of my friend’s homes who feel that coastal = fish plaques on the wall and more obvious looks.
This coastal home is beautifully done and clutter free, allowing the architecture to be the star.
The water view is perfect in this home below and the sophisticated neutrals mixed with blues are understated. The coastal living room design doesn’t need much else and the beach vibe is simply implied.
Every living room starts with a sofa. My preferred sofa style is white or neutral so that you can play with pillows and throws as the seasons change. Our beach home has had the Pottery Barn white slipcovered sofa (find that HERE) and loveseat shown in the top image) for about 3 years now. They are pricey and worth it, but I found the alternative below at a fraction of the cost. Click HERE to shop the sofa.
Beyond the sofa I’m featuring some favorite finds in a retailer spotlight that are all quite affordable and I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised! Whether you live on the coast or deep in the middle of the country, adding some coastal living room design can give your home an elegant look and feel!
