Layered Coastal Living Room

1. Layer Your Space. In the same way that you dress yourself for cooler weather, add layers to your home with slipcovers, pillows and throw blankets. Use this time to experiment with mixing textures, patterns, and colors. This Beach house living room is a perfect example of layering with texture, from the jute area rug to the woven accent chairs.

2. Think Warm TonesEven bright white can feel autumnal when combined with warm oranges and browns. Consider giving those seaglass tones a break until spring in favor of more seasonal pillows or throws.
