In a coastal living room, blue is the obvious paint choice for walls but you might not realize how essential it is. Since you want your space to mimic the feel that the ocean gives you, blue is instantly calm against your creamy whites and natural accents, making you feel cool and relaxed like the ocean does.
Still, this doesn’t mean you have to push down walls, as the same feeling of openness can be achieved by rearranging furniture. For instance, you can scoot chairs together, or play with colors, patterns, and decorations to create a visual connection between different parts of the room. The room’s design in general is becoming more personal and wisely uses the space limitations. Remember, the heart of the house is the living room!
