Today, we will focus on another essential part of the house: the living room. We will see why this holiday atmosphere is ideal for a living room like the living room and we will also see how to implement this style of decoration at home, in the living room. We hope this article will give you ideas for inviting rest and vacations in your home!
WHY IS THE SEASIDE STYLE IDEAL FOR THE LIVING ROOM?
It is synonymous with conviviality and around a table it is important. It is also important in the living room. However, this is not the only advantage of this decorative style. The seaside style is synonymous with relaxation, perfect for the living room.
If you do not live near the sea, in general, this atmosphere is synonymous with vacation. And therefore, we have an idea of relaxation. We decompress from the year that has just passed. We fill up on nature, sun and rest. The living room, even if it is a place of life in our interiors, it is also a place where we relax after a day of work. It is a place where we rest on weekends.
FRIENDLINESS AND A PROMISE OF GOOD TIMES
And even if at the seaside you release the pressure, you also spend convivial and simple moments there. You can make sandcastles with the youngest, part of snowshoes with the older ones. You can also picnic on the sand in the shade of a parasol. So with a seaside style, we work on both the idea of rest and conviviality. These are two objectives for a living room decoration, a living room par excellence. We rest there and spend time with family or friends. We are not going to put deckchairs in place of armchairs. However, we will seek comfort so that everyone can have a good time in the living room. Comfort will go through the sofa and the armchairs, but not only. There will also be a feeling of visual comfort, soft and invigorating at the same time, thanks to the colors and the furniture.
AN ATMOSPHERE EASY TO IMPLEMENT
What is also interesting in the seaside lounge is that it is not a very difficult atmosphere to create in your interior. No need to do “big” jobs or dusty renovations. If your walls are white or neutral in color, you already have a good basis for your decoration. The rest are accessories, which are installed or placed relatively quickly. We change the carpet or the sofa cover. We change the lights in the room. We hang paintings on the wall that recall vacation landscapes. All this does not take much time. If you had a Scandinavian decor in the living room and you start to get tired of it, the light furniture has its place in the seaside decor. No need to change the furniture in the living room, that saves you a lot of money!
THE IMPORTANCE OF SMALL DECORATIVE DETAILS IN A LIVING ROOM WITH A MARINE ATMOSPHERE
Decorative details are important in many decor styles, but in a seaside atmosphere, they mostly refer directly to the beach and vacations.
A WALL DECORATION THAT REFERS TO THE SEA AND THE BEACH
No need to make tons of them: a few photos chosen with the care of the sea or the world relating to the sea are enough. It can be photos of families in black and white, memories of past holidays. It can also be a beacon with a raging sea, in full storm, a large format posed above the sofa. We can also think of a series of images and landscapes. To choose your illustrations well, it has to speak to you. Do you like Brittany? Why not choose only Breton landscapes to decorate the walls of your living room. You prefer distant and tropical atmospheres: palm trees can be part of the photos you choose to compose your wall decoration. Are you passionate about boats or maritime sports? It also works. The seaside style is not fixed and defined by a type of object.
DECORATIVE LIGHTING FOR A SEASIDE STYLE
Light, regardless of the style of decoration, is important in any room of the house. In a marine atmosphere that refers to the beach and vacations, we also have the idea of brightness. And unlike the beach, in the living room, you can adjust the brightness. We will obviously find the main fixture to light the whole room. We will also work on the secondary lighting to create an atmosphere that is both bright and cozy. Yellow light is preferable to white light, much cooler. The design, the materials that make up the lights will help you perfect your decor. We obviously think of woven rattan or wicker lights. They are very trendy and can easily be found in stores.
