Charming Beach Décor

Sep-14-2011 By carpeteria_admin

This living room is in a Chatham, MA beach home designed by Anne Selke.  The entire house is a study in elegant beach chic style. Filled with colorful palettes, each room is a uniquely stylish space yet there is a cohesive style throughout the house.  The living room demonstrates how classic beach elements can be transformed into an elegant space.  The sea inspired blue and green colorway is paired with driftwood pale wood tables and accents.

 

Large cream sofas, with slipcovers, give relaxed but tailored feeling to the room.  The pair of sofas provides ample seating for a large group or a place for afternoon naps.  Rolled arm armchairs in deep blue fill the space below the windows and create another seating area for conversation.  Large and low wood tables with glass tops are the perfect place for drinks, snacks and games.  The pale color of the wood recalls driftwood, another seaside staple.

 

Fabrics mix it up with patterns and stripes cohabiting in the space. A striped rug captures the colors of the room.  Deeper curtains stand out against pale, ice blue walls. The curtains relate nicely to the deeper blue of the armchairs while also incorporating the greens and whites of the palette.  Vintage table lamps in aqua and green fit in this relaxed space. Throw pillows in blue and white pull the chair color onto the sofas. A striped throw casually thrown over the arm of the sofa adds color and encourages naps.

 

This is a very charming beach inspired living room filled with style and classic seaside colors.
