Ideas For Decorating Your Island Living Room

Need some inspiration to decorate your new island home? HGTV has an excellent article that can help you come up with a vision for your Caribbean lifestyle. Here are 3 ideas to get your brainstorming session started:

Coastal Blues


With a palette of maritime blues and dune-grass greens, this living room creates an easygoing coastal feel reminiscent of a charming seaside cottage. To mimic this airy and inviting space, decorate with soothing hues, seaside accessories, like beach glass and seashells, and seagrass furnishings.



Waterfront Surroundings

Designer Sarah Richardson brings the comfort of the sea indoors through this cozy living space overlooking the water. To create that comfortable at-home look, she effortlessly mixes various patterns in a blue and sandy palette with whitewashed accents. Using minimal accessories, Sarah allows the wall-to-wall windows and outside views to take over as the room’s focal point.







Sea Tones

In this casually elegant living room, designer Allison Rejeanne uses the home’s surroundings as inspiration to create the ultimate spot for rest and relaxation. The aqua- and sandy-hued palette is the perfect balance of color and neutrality, while also bringing in natural sea-inspired tones. To pull in more of that beachy feel, Allison adds colored glass bottles, a glass ball lamp wrapped in fisherman’s netting, coral pieces and distressed furnishings.
