Cottage bungalows are historically smaller in stature. If you find yourself the proud owner of an older seaside cottage, or want to deck your home or apartment in true beach house style, Cottage & Bungalow has tricks to enhance a small living room’s ambiance without cramping your style.
Beach House Decor Ideas for Small Living Room Spaces
The first trick to making the most of small living spaces is to use decorative furnishings that serve more than one purpose. The Polo Club Trunk is a prime example. It can serve as a coffee table and storage cabinet, or turn it on it’s end for an eclectic end table.
When it comes to decorating small spaces, mirrors and reflective surfaces are a designer’s best friend. They magnify existing light and reflect the surrounding environment, creating the illusion of more space. Any one of C&B’s stylish mirrors will double your living room’s style impact.
Another way to optimize small spaces is to utilize every nook and cranny. That requires small, uniquely shaped accent tables, like the Pagoda Drinks Table or the Crisfield End Table, which does double-duty as end table and storage.
Is your small space dying for an ocean view? Sounds like it’s time to invest in ocean inspired art. Check out these pieces from the Miller Pope Gallery. From boats and beaches to coastal wildlife, your living room will always have a five-star view.
