2. Palm Trees
When we think of the beach, palm trees are surely one of the first things to pop into our heads. You need not bother with real greens to include a touch of palm trees to your living space. You can have throw pillows printed with palm trees, or a framed print of palm trees. This way, you can sit back and relax under the palm trees right in the comfort of your home.
3. Relaxing Waves
Lay back and relax while enjoying the wonderful scenery of ocean waves right at the comfort your living room. Blue is also an elegant hue to introduce into your living room, and it wonderfully coordinates with almost any other color. I love the ideas of painted waves hung up on the wall.
4. Tropical Flowers
Just like palm trees, there are specific flowers that remind us of the beauty of the tropics. Choose a rug with beautiful tropical patterns and make use of vibrant colors and intriguing patterns. It’s sure to become the centerpiece accent of your living room.
5. Tropical Animals
For bolder and more unique tastes, why not take advantage of a tropical animal print? All kinds of fish, birds, and tropical animals can be chic additions to a living room. This graphic bird print in vibrant, bold colors is the perfect statement piece to hang on the wall.
Another subtle print you can use is a starfish. Go for big, graphic prints, or may use an actual starfish as decoration. You’ll feel like you’re lying on the beach while simply lounging in your living room.
7. Blue Patterns
It’s really easy to add a nautical touch to your living room. Prints that come in navy, sea, or sky blue are subtle ways to bring the beach into your living room. The beautiful blue rug to go along with classy furniture is a great idea.
If you can’t have a real Piña Colada by the beach, pineapple prints are the next best thing. They’re bright, fun, and very trendy right now.
