Create a Casual, Comfortable Beach-Style Living Room

Love spending a day at the beach? Why not bring the beach home with easy, breezy, beach-style décor? You’ll get the feel of spending the day at the beach without having to worry about all that sand in your home. And the best part? This style is so versatile, it can be modified to suit any home.

Create an Open and Airy Feel

If you’re like me, you don’t want actual sand in your home, but a sandy palette is a great way to create your beach style living room. To make this work, stick to an open floor plan and pay attention to the size and scale of the furniture and accessories you include in the space. The goal is to create an open, airy feel in the room, just like you get the feeling of wide open spaces when at the beach.

The Bali Hai Diamond Cove Swivel Chair and Bali Hai Quickship Shoreline Sofa, both from Tommy Bahama, are perfect pieces to bring beach style into your home. They capture the essence of a tropical locale with white sand beaches and gentle waves lapping on the shore. Natural fiber rugs and tropical foliage complete the beachy feel in the space.

Glam Up Your Beach Style

Beach style has a reputation for being an easy, breezy, casual style. But there’s no reason why you can’t glam it up a little. This beach style living room keeps it minimal with streamlined furniture and mirror-top tables. The Orleans Rectangular Cocktail Table from Bernhardt features an antiqued mirror and a wrought iron base finished in silver leaf. Specimen coral and brass accessories give a nod to the sea while coral-colored throw pillows keep the style casual and comfortable.

Subtle Beach Touches in Shades of Green and Gray

Sometimes beach style is more about the feeling created than the color palette used in a room. And sometimes the beach is more about a particular event. Collecting sea glass washed up on the shore is often the highlight of a day at the beach. The Fusion Hermes Reef Glass Top Cocktail Table from Tommy Bahama brings the essence of sea glass into your living room. The custom-designed, fused glass tabletop of this piece mimics the look of ocean glass washed ashore. It adds a touch of contrasting materials to the soft upholstery of the Island Fusion Sakura Sofa, also from Tommy Bahama.

The subtle beach style living room furniture is complemented by specimen coral and tons of light. The muted colors mimic the storm-tossed sea while the bright light mimics the clear skies after the storm.

These are just a few ways you can add some beach-inspired décor to your home. Whether you want a little or a lot, adding a beach vibe to your interior will make it the perfect retreat at the end of the day.
