When your living room is ready to be redecorated, you have a lot of choices for decor available to you.  Everything from modern and funky to nature inspired decor is open for discussion as you begin to contemplate how to decorate.

One great theme to use in any living room is an ocean theme.  It allows you to pull the calming colors of nature into the look of the room, while also using natural, green elements that can save you money and stretch your budget for other items.

Wall Colors

There are two main colors that can be successfully used to pull off an ocean theme room.  A pale, ocean blue and white are the two main contenders.  Ocean blue is great to use if you are in an airy, light room with a lot of windows.  White is perfect for those smaller rooms with less natural lighting.  No matter which color you choose, purchase paint that is eco-friendly and will not leave strong odors in your home after use.  This is especially important if you have allergy sensitive family members who cannot handle the smell of paint.

Wall Décor

After the walls are painted, one of the easiest ways to decorate them is to frame pictures of your family from a recent trip to the beach.  On ocean blue walls, white frames look stunning, while ocean blue frames look great on a white wall background.  Take a few frames and line them up on a wall shelf or hang them in a straight line across the wall.  This will help pull the beach theme around the room and provide personal appeal to those who live in the home.  There is nothing like seeing happy memories from the beach to make a room feel special.

Making Use of Shells

Instead of purchasing a lot of accessories, try to keep your ocean or beach theme room relatively clutter free.  Instead of a massive centerpiece on the coffee table, have a worn, wooden bowl filled with sea shells that your children have gathered.  After they have been washed and dried, they are perfect for adding an authentic feel to the room and cost you nothing.  They also offer children something fun to play with and arrange into groups and piles.  Any large sea shells that you find or purchase can be displayed on bookshelves, mantels or side tables.

Furniture Colors

If you can find slipcovers for your existing furniture, that will be the most inexpensive option for redecorating.  White slipcovers are perfect for a beach room, but for families with small children or pets, you might think that white will be too much of a hassle. But many people prefer white slipcovers because it’s easy to tell when it’s time to launder them and they can be tossed into the washer with a whitening laundry booster and they’re ready to go again. However, if your prefer, a deep gray or dark blue works equally as well and will not have to be laundered because of hand prints or dirt stains quite so often.

Creating an ocean theme living room is a great way to bring back the memories of a fun family vacation and also save on redecorating costs.  Do not be afraid to make ample use of the souvenirs and postcards that you bring home from your vacation, as they can make stunning accessories in any beach room.  With a little paint, a few great pictures and some classic seashells, there is nothing stopping you from creating a beautiful room.

Dance of the Southwest in Living Room Decor

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

There is something earthy and primal about native designs in wall art.  They offer a sense of history and spirit that is rarely seen in other types of decor.  Southwestern metal wall art is a great choice for any homeowner who wants to bring a touch of the tribal qualities into their living space.  The two pieces below can be used together or separately to help you achieve the look you are after.

yhst-23119701400359_2199_86658300The Tribal Musician Laser Cut Metal Wall Hanging features a tribal musician dancing across the scene.  It is done in a muted gray tone that matches most any decor.  The abstractly formed panel measures 10-inches high by 7.5-inches wide and is accented by tribal shapes and designs around the main image.  It is perfect for any room that wants to capture the spirit of the southwest.

yhst-23119701400359_2199_89313357Much like the piece above, the Tribal Handprint Laser Cut Metal Wall Art sculpture is done in the same muted shade of gray.  This makes the pieces perfect companions and works well when they are hung together.  The panel has the same unique abstract shape and is 10-inches high by 7.5-inches wide.  The laser cut out in the center features a tribal hand with details and a row of patterning beneath.

Unlike most southwestern inspired pieces, the monotone coloring of the two above makes them ideal accents for any room.  They work well together or alone, but will always make a big impact wherever they are hung.  If you are searching for just the right pieces, these two metal wall hangings may be just the ones you need.

There is something about a burst of color in a wall sculpture that makes the eye happy.  Whether it is a single streak of color or a bold image, the bright color draws the eye and engages the individual.  In modern metal wall art, color is a common occurrence, but there are still some pieces that make one stop and stare.  Those pieces are usually the ones where color is bold and bright, but without any real form.

Abstract is Key to Decor
