Summer is analogous to the feeling that you want to be at the beach taking in the sun and sand and the smell of the ocean! We live about a mile from the beach and we go spend time there a lot. Even then, I am always left wanting to go a lot more! What better way to get the beach home than to have a coastal decor!
In the middle of making my recent coastal candle holder, I was contacted by a global real estate firm to participate in their Florida Room Challenge which is common fixture found in their Florida real estate. It was the perfect opportunity to put my aspirations of coastal decor in a style board
When I think of Florida, I always think of Miami… that’s right – not Disney World… Miami!! Probably because that is the only place in Florida I have visited! And when you think Miami – you always think of glamor! So, here it is, my Miami inspired, very glamorous, modern coastal living room style board!

Lets talk about each element of this glamorous coastal living room and how you can bring this into your home as well –
If you need glamor, you have got to have metallics! I love the combination of gold, white and aqua which works wonderfully for modern coastal decor. I brought in a lot of brass and antique gold finish in the coffee table, side table and the console table. The pendant chandelier light has a beautiful metallic finish. The light blue rug ties the whole room together. Art on the wall and pillows add a fun splash of color. I picked cream furniture so it doesn’t take your eye away from all the details.
When you think “coastal” you think about all the layers of texture you find on the beach… the hand woven shag rug creates a plush feel under the feet. The sea shell mirror, blue mosaic vases, starfish bowl and the urchin bowl pick up the various textures you find on the beach. The super soft striped throw and the fun patterned throw pillows bring lots of comfort and warmth to the room.
It is important for the various elements in the room to tie together. The clean lines of the furniture stay with the modern vibe. The circular coffee table ties in with the side table and chandelier. Texture of the chandelier is echoed in the sea shell mirror, the side table and the sea urchin bowl. Simple lines of the coffee table tie in with the console table. Colorful wall art brings in eccentricity and splashes of color that tie in with cushions on the couch. A gold and white cushion brings the metallics to the couch. The amethyst glass of the console table and the blue mosaic vases and tie in with the room.
