Summer Blues Coastal Family Room Tour

Summer Blues Coastal Family Room Tour

We are back from our Hatteras Island vacation, one of my favorite places on Earth. If you follow me on Instagram then you can see the amazing house we stayed at! Vacation is over and now I have the summer blues! All I want is to relax on the beach. To keep the casual, beachy vacation vibe going, I updated our home with a palette of sea inspired shades of blue like deep navy, storm cloud gray-blue, seaglass, and cobalt. Kick off your flip flops, pour a glass of iced tea and come take a peek at my Summer Blues Coastal Family Room Tour

I dug deep into all my closets and cabinets and pulled out every coastal decor item I had. Shopping your home first before heading out to the stores is something I highly recommend. I pulled the sailboat painting from my master bedroom and placed it over our DIY Wood Beam Mantel and balanced it out with a few wood turned candlesticks from the dining room and a huge rope wrapped glass float from the foyer. Shop your home people!

Achieving a summery-tropical feel is easy when you add lots of greenery. The beauty of decorating with greenery stems is that they last for weeks! Don’t be afraid to take clippings from your hosta plants, bush or tree branches, and indoor plants like bird-of-paradise, peace lily or palms.

I placed a few bird of paradise stems in a ceramic jug, draped with my DIY Wood Bead Strand and created a cute coastal cloche filled with moss, driftwood and a huge sand dollar.

One new thing I did was to paint the back of the builtins white. They were painted with Sea Salt but I wasn’t happy with the look. I still need to paint the backing behind the glass doors. The white backing is much more versatile.

A simple and inexpensive coastal decorating idea is to buy a $3 bundle of ferns from the grocery store and place the stems in a collection of glass bottles and vases. It is a fresh and airy, summery look with little effort or expense.
