Today, I have another beautiful space to share of our coastal bohemian Las Palmas project. Adjacent to the fresh white kitchen, is a casual family lounge space of soft neutrals, vintage textiles, weathered woods, and hints of black. Enjoy! If you missed it, check out the rest of this pretty coastal home: kitchen, master bathroom, and living and dining rooms.
In this open-concept project, it was important that the design of this little lounge space blend seamlessly with the crisp clean feel of the adjacent kitchen. We continued the Royal Oak Canewood floors from the kitchen into the space and kept with Benjamin Moore’s Chantilly Lace on the walls. This beautiful white paint is a cool hued white that reads bright and fresh in light-filled spaces.
We defined the space as separate from the kitchen with a beautiful neutral rug. It has a subtle black geometric pattern for a fresh take on Moroccan. We made sure that the rug was wool so that it would wear well in this much used family space. Continuing our neutral foundation, we selected a comfortable linen sectional. When using light upholstery for furniture, we like selecting an indoor/outdoor fabric that repels stains, or choosing a slipcovered sofa that can be washed.
To add depth and modern polish, we accented the space with black. We chose a black and brass midcentury floor lamp (or here for a similar look for less), a unique Z-shaped side table, simple black curtain rods, and an industrial ceiling fan that takes advantage of coastal breezes. These black accents add an interesting edge to the coastal space and keep it feeling fresh.
On top of the all these neutrals, we layered vintage textiles and weathered wood for warmth. Contrasting colors and patterns in vintage throw pillows helps the new space feel lived in and unique. Last week I shared a round up of affordable vintage pillows, or check here, here, here and here for a few more that caught my eye.
This weathered wood coffee table is a favorite of mine for adding a subtle coastal feel to a space (or check out this sea grass wrapped table for another beautiful option). We added other organic hints of the coast in the styling of the coffee table with a pretty natural wood bowl and aqua glass beads. We finished the table with books, coasters, a black candle with a rich scent and a black ceramic planter with a pop of green. If you missed our post on styling with succulents, check it out for ideas and favorite plants to use.
