Create a Coastal Style Living Room with Broyhill Furniture

Contemporary coastal is a fun and fresh design style that brings a casually relaxed vibe into your home. Reflecting the bright, beautiful, and energizing aura of beach life, coastal style is all about creating a cheery atmosphere indoors. But that doesn’t mean that you should overload your living room with starfish, glass floats, shells, and other pieces of nautica in your décor. It’s best to choose a color palette and build from there. There are many interpretations and reimaginings of coastal décor, but here are five color palettes that can give your home some coastal flair.


When imagining a coastal home, light pastel blues and greens might first come to mind. But have you ever considered coral? Bright and cheerful, this is a fun and unusual color to find in a coastal living room. It creates a playful, tropical look that is hard to resist. If you are not sure, try using it on small accents such as vases, pillows, and wall art.

If you want to go bold, try bright coral on a sofa or chair. The Emily Casual Style Sofa in coral by Broyhill makes a relaxing and stylish addition to your coastal style living room. It is the perfect place to relax, watch television, or read a book. The gently rolled arms and skirt covered base fit perfectly in the coastal décor.

Navy Blue

It’s called navy blue for a reason. Bold navy blue is one of the most popular colors to use in coastal décor. Navy blue’s dark shades give a more masculine feel to a coastal-inspired room. But don’t be afraid of this color: a dark blue sofa or chair are great options for your living room. Pair it with other shades of blue, a cool white, or even coral to add a little energy to the space.

Pastel Blue

The traditional pastel shades found in coastal décor, such as soft powder blue, create a comfortable and welcoming feel in your living room. Pastel blue goes well with creamy whites and distressed wood. It is also a great primary wall color that will make your space seem bright and open.

Sandy Beige

Neutrals tend to be overlooked in coastal décor, but they can create a simple, relaxed atmosphere. Mix sandy white and beige with washed out blues and woody browns. As with any neutral space, it is important to play up texture for interest. You can do this with accessories such as shells, driftwood, and woven rugs.

Furniture pieces in the Emily Collection from Broyhill Furniture come in many custom upholstery options such as coral, navy, and beige that are perfect for coastal living room décor. Visit the Baer’s Furniture showroom near you to find out about all the options.
