Fresh And Relaxing Beach Living Room Theme
Many people have warm memories of family trips to the beach and relaxing summer vacations. Whether you are a true beach bum or just appreciate the natural beauty and serenity of the ocean, you can create a beach living room theme in your house. Choose the beach living room accessories and colors that evoke beach memories. You can start to paint the room in a light color such as aqua, light blue, beige, yellow or white. Lightly colored painted walls will give the room an open, airy feel. Paint the ceiling either a light blue to mimic the color of the sky or paint it white. Paint the window frames white or a sand color to keep the overall feel of the room light. Use rattan furniture in the room along with a large sea grass rug placed under the coffee table. You will feel as if you are outdoors walking on the beach every time you enter the room.
Hot-glue shells onto the frame of a large mirror. Hang the mirror on the wall opposite of a wall with a window. The window will be reflected in the mirror to give the image of another window in the room, which will add more light. Then, use the shells. Using shells that you have personally collected will add special meaning to your beach living room theme or you can purchase bags of shells from a craft store. Place beach-themed art on the walls. Place a large painting of the ocean or a sailboat above the sofa. Place photos of your family’s trips to the beach in picture frames and group them in an entry way.
