Upon entering the foyer, a few steps lead visitors into a gleaming white living room filled with natural light compliments of a wall of glass. Large windows dominate the space, and pops of blue and yellow color are bright and cheery.
Third-Floor Living Room Offers Sweeping Views of Atlantic Ocean
The living room of this New Hampshire coastal home is located on the third floor to maximize views of the ocean. Low-slung, neutral furnishings allow for the attention to stay on the beautiful views through the picture windows along three sides of the room. Touches of blue in the room's accents tie the look to the blue cabinetry in the adjacent kitchen.
Wrapping seating all the way around this living room—with a break for the beautiful fireplace—instantly makes the space so cozy. It's a nice juxtaposition to the wide, open seascapes framed in by the huge windows.
The house features an open-living concept which allows the beamed ceiling to shine while adding visual interest and dimension above. Below, a neutral color palette is used throughout to channel the coastal vibes on the outside - like the light gray shiplap focal wall.
This room is all about the view, but in this small beach cottage, every inch counts. Designers decided to go with an extra long sectional (for the sitting space) and a fun hanging chair in the corner. The rest of the floor plan was kept open so that people can be sitting at the many turquoise stools at the island as well as the living space without additional furniture in between. A fun assortment of various sized tables is an uncluttered look.
A hanging chair in the corner of this living room offers occupants a great view of the beach. The chair is suspended from the shiplap clad ceiling by a rope, adding to the coastal feel of the bright, light-filled space.
