In this inviting living space, designer Denise Davies of D2 Interieurs pulled her palette of watercolor-sheer colors from the natural surroundings and a stone fireplace elsewhere in the room. “In most of D2’s projects, we begin with a neutral base and then infuse color through the accessories in a very thoughtful way,” say the designers.
This living room area provides a playful air of visual stimulation; lively punches of tangerine and kelly green merged with varying shades of cobalt and indigo blues. A heavy dose of woven sea grass added to the distinctive maritime air while an assortment of sea shells, blue-and-white pottery and a colorful collection of art came together to create a place of delight in this low-key beach cottage.

Coastal Living Room With Seashell-Wallpaper Accent Wall
The eye is drawn to an indented panel in the wall covered with black-and-white seashell-patterned wallpaper. A circular mirror adds a brightening effect over the wallpaper that matches the sunny, bright look of the white room. Patterned pink and blue throw pillows decorate the light blue sectional curved around a brass coffee table.
White Living Room With Soaring Ceilings and Coastal Decor
Sea-blue glass accents and throw pillows in Floridian prints add a coastal feel to the living room of HGTV Smart Home 2013 in Jacksonville, Fla. At the crest of the soaring cathedral ceiling, an aerodynamically inspired ceiling fan crafted with industrial-grade components serves as an interesting focal point overhead.
Throughout this coastal California home, doors open up to connect the interior to patios just steps away from the beach and waves. Keeping a similar color theme inside and out (snappy accents of red and white) help the two spaces feel unified.
Coastal Living Room With Beadboard Ceiling and Large Windows
Sarah Richardson, host of HGTV's "Sarah's Summer House," went for rustic charm when designing the living room. The room seems as if it's perched over the water with its wraparound windows. She arranged the seating around the perimeter of the room so each seat has the perfect view of the water. The shades of blue in the upholstery represent the water, and layering the different patterns, like ikat, floral and striped, gives the room a lighthearted look.
This coastal style living room features a bamboo shade and floral patterned curtains framing a lovely picture window revealing a beachy setting. A cottage style side table displays a quaint lamp, coral, and vintage glass bottles, lending to the coastal vibe of the space. A comfy sofa with white throw and floral and solid pillows invites guests to relax and enjoy the setting.
This living space features subtle coastal nuances that complement the theme throughout the home. Recessed lights, a white mantel and grey bricks help to make the rooms seem bigger and more inviting, as seen on Fixer Upper.
