Get the Look: Modern Seaside Living Room

A beachy vibe is great, but all the neutral colors can get a little stale. For bold color at a summer cottage, decorate with shades of blue and a pop of turquoise. Wicker furniture usually has a rustic feel, but with a fresh coat of paint, it instantly looks updated and modern. Don’t these thick chair cushions look perfect for an afternoon nap?
