Classic Coastal Home : The Living Room

Classic Coastal Home Living Room

Hi friends! This blog post has been a long time coming and I am SO excited to finally share it with you! To give you a little background my parents moved to Florida a little over a year and a half ago part-time. They met at Florida Southern College and lived their newlywed life there. Most of my family is there as well as family friends, so in many ways, they felt like they were moving back home.

My mom has many gifts and talents, however, her knack for interior design is by far the most extraordinary. When my parents decided to build in Florida, my mom’s talent went into overdrive while designing this home. I hope that one day, I will get just an ounce of her interior design gene. The love for home decor is already there, but the talent of creating rooms that come alive and look to be from a magazine are still being built. With all of that being said, I want to share this classic coastal home with you. I know you will love it and with Mother’s Day just around the corner, there is no better time than to appreciate the beautiful home my mom created. 

To give everyone a fair warning, there are A LOT of pictures in this post. Today, I am just showing you the living room and the rest of the house tour will be spread out in the next few weeks. With mom’s help, I have been trying to link as many things as possible, but if we left anything out or you have any questions, make sure to leave a comment below! 

Classic Coastal Living Room

My mom loves nothing more than blue, and white with pops of green and pink. She wanted a classic and traditional home, but with a strong reminder that the beach was only right around the corner. This house contains the classic white shiplap walls and bright, open spaces while also bringing in bold patterns and colors of the Florida coast.

The Couch & Bright Coastal Pillows

The sofas were designed by Temple and ordered through Tyson Furniture. They are upholstered in the shade Capela Natural and my mom added contrasting welt in Classy Royal Velvet. I couldn’t find the exact sofa anymore but the sofas have loose T cushions if you want similar design. 

The solid blue pillows came from Ballard Designs and can be found here. They are created in the Signature Velvet Indigo fabric. The single blue pattern pillow can be found here and the fabric is Brindisi Blue. My favorite accents are these gorgeous bright floral print pillows. My mom found the fabric and then had them custom made at a local tailor. I’ll let you know if I find an exact link for the fabric!

Console Tables

To add an extra pop of color to the house, my mom hand-painted these console tables. She also switched out the original hardware for gold. The exact console tables can be found here. I love how the blue stands out against the white walls and it adds to the classic coastal home feel! 

I can’t find the exact mirrors, but I found some similar ones here and here. All of the decor on top of the tables came from HomeGoods. The only exception is the wooden base fishbowl, which was found at a local home decor store. Originally my mom wanted to put actual fish in it, but my dad was against it. It was one of the few debates my dad won while building this house (sorry Dad!) The fishbowl is now filled with moss, rocks, and a few seashells.

Recliner & Ottomans

The Brooke Recliners are easily the most comfortable sitting spots in the house. They are covered with the Sunbrella Trellis fabric in the color kiwi, but at this moment this fabric is not a design option for these recliners. In the middle, rests the Sidney Side Table in navy. It is the perfect table for this narrow spot!

The two ottomans in front of the fireplace are the Courbe Ottomans in the Brindisi Blue fabric. Mom added brass nailheads as well.

Lighting & Other Coastal Home Decor

I am a huge fan of pendant lighting! I love the open and airy feel and it lets so much light into the house! The main foyer light can be found here and in brass. The lamps on the console table, my mom and I found at HomeGoods ( I was in Florida A TON when mom was home decor shopping.) I found some similar options here though.

The table that rests behind the couch is the Marietta Console Table. It is one of the first pieces of furniture when you walk through the front door, but it seems that the beauty from the rest of the house always overshadows this beautiful table. 

I feel like there is so much more to say about this living room! The list could go on and on will every single detail including fireplace bricks, rugs, and floors. My mom put so much time and effort into making each square foot of the house beautiful. 

What do you think of this classic coastal home?! I cannot wait to share the rest of the house with you over the next few weeks! If you have any questions, leave them in the comments below!

All My Love,

Michelle Marie
