A couple months ago I was approached to create a Florida Room inspiration post for the blog. Being a huge ocean girl myself, I was so excited for the challenge and opportunity! There’s nothing like a quiet day by the water under a warm sun. Because we don’t all have the luxury of living beside the sea, a Florida Room is the perfect way to incorporate those peaceful vibes in your home!
A few tips to remember when creating your Florida Room:
Think about your favorite aspects of the sea and incorporate that into your home!
For me, it’s how peaceful the ocean makes me feel. So I chose a softer color palette incorporating lots of blue, grey, and linen tones. I also love the warmth of the sun and the vibrancy of the colors, so I incorporated some pieces with contrast and color like the throw pillows and artwork.
One of the best things about a Florida Room is how seamlessly you can incorporate multiple surfaces and textures. I chose a natural end table, a rustic light fixture, an ornate wallpaper, a weathered side chair, a structured sofa, and a vintage rug. While each piece tells it’s own story, they blend perfectly in this Florida Room.
Repeat patterns and motifs.
Layering patterns is one easy way to create depth and visual interest in your room. By mimicking similar patterns and motifs throughout the whole design, you can create a cohesive yet varying look. I chose to repeat the stripes in the rug, pillows, and even in the woven basket, while the art print brings in both the palm and the intricate design on the wallpaper.
I’d love to hear what you would include in your dream Florida Room! Here’s a list of all of the sources pictured above: woven basket, ocean painting, art print, wallpaper, mirror, faux palm, chair, sofa, rug, guava pillow, indigo pillow, navy pillow, end table, light fixture.
