John Lewis Coastal Living RoomBeach Style Living Room, London
What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. Channel the New England look. Another light and bright way to use tones of blue and gray is to tap into classic East Coast beach style. But rather than going down the super crisp and pretty route often seen with this look, forgo the typical red accents and let gray and sky blue be the bridges between navy and white.The gray curtains here are particularly effective. Note how they’re hung. If you’re tempted to go for a modern grommet style instead, bear in mind that this would introduce a potentially chilly, solitary chrome feature and a drape that isn’t as soft.
5. England. The architecture of this British living room is simple and pared-back compared with the sophisticated scale of Hamptons architecture, which is all about detailed trims and moldings. The blues here are muted rather than crisp and clear, but the white-painted paneling and the mix of stripes in the upholstery and rugs recall a fashionable resort.
