GORGEOUS COASTAL CHIC SUMMER LIVING ROOM DECOR
Welcome to my summer living room, where things are easy, laid back and welcoming.
This year, I kept things very simple and only updated our pillows, restyled the trays on our ottoman, brought back my previous lamps and added some majesty palms for greenery.
Those few, simple changes make all the difference and help to bring in that coastal-chic look that I love so much.
Call it Hamptons style or coastal decor, either way, it’s become my favorite look in our home.I love blues and always incorporate them throughout my decor, something I’ve been doing more and more lately.
If you missed it, you can visit my updated summer entryway that we just wallpapered in a faux blue grasscloth – which is also a nod to this gorgeous look.
I kept the bookshelves styled very similarly to my spring living room, and only swapped out a few jars.
This is such a busy time of year, and I needed to keep my sanity!
HAMPTONS-INSPIRED BLUE & WHITE PILLOWS
Our new pillow covers from Arianna Belle, bring in the perfect summer look that I was after.
She helped me find the perfect pillow combination to achieve this look and I could not love them more.
I always get asked what we do with all the pillows in here when we lounge in here.
Very simple…they get thrown on the floor!I do admit, I’m very particular with how they are displayed, so each night when I pack it up before bed, they get neatly placed back in their spots.
Even my hubby does it ;)If you know me well, then you know that beautiful pillows are always a must for me with my decor.
I love to change them every season and they get rotated throughout our home.
Nothing makes a statement more than gorgeous pillows! These ones have stolen my heart…
I even ordered the striped fabric to recover our kitchen barstools (stay tuned), and will be using similar fabrics to the others in my new home office.
A CORAL COLLECTION ON OUR OTTOMAN
On our ottoman, I corralled my favorite coral sculptures and mixed in some of my pale blue ginger jars – all in different heights to create dimension and interest.
I just love the layers of soft blues and creamy whites you see on display today.
I love to use books in my decor and I love to color coordinate them for a cohesive look when I can.
Take the covers off for a cleaner look.
A ROOM WITH A VIEW
I love this view, looking into the front of our home…Our new blue walls in our summer entryway have such an impact and compliment our summer living room decor so beautifully.Our new rug, which made it’s debut in our spring living room is the perfect neutral piece that helps to tie all of our spaces together.
Yes! Believe it or not, blue can be (or rather, is, in my opinion!) neutral! Think denim, blue waters and skies…
Blue just makes me happy, it’s that simple.
Over the years, I’ve used it more and more, and I’ll never get tired of it.
My mama would be so in love with our summer living room decor.
Our entryway refresh has her style written all over it…I miss her every single day (I miss both of my parents terribly, I unfortunately lost them both in the last two years), but this all brings me is much comfort as it reminds me of her.
She had such impeccable style and it has impacted me in every way.
We’re thinking about possibly painting our walls white, which would be a huge undertaking, the ceilings are eleven feet in here.This color is Collingwood by Benjamin Moore – a beautiful greige – but I think a beautiful white would be stunning!
Stay tuned, it may just happen!
