Florida Decor - Living Room




My house in Michigan was a mixture of warm colors and dark wood, which fit the style of the house and the wooded lot. I knew when we moved to Florida, I wanted to go lighter, brighter and primarily a neutral, coastal feel, with pops of color. We found a great furniture store (Pamaro Shop in Sarasota) that had exactly what we were looking for. I didn't want tropical, but I wanted it to feel like a Florida house the minute you walked in. There is a seashell pattern on the chairs, but it's subtle. The two paintings are something we have owned for years (since Memphis), but I think they work really well in this room.










Some of my favorites are the tv stand with its weathered finish and tourquoise accents, the starfish base lamps (also subtle) and the brightly colored rug (Wayfair) that picks up all the various shades of blue and green.

It's way out of our comfort zone, but I love how it turned out.

See adjacent kitchen and dining area for a complete picture of the open concept space.

Have a wonderful weekend!



  1. Very nice Vicki . . .
    I am amazed how you embrace change and new!

  2. Omg!!! It’s perfecto!!! And I immediately feel the coastal feel without being my bombarded by it. And it’s so new and clean and uncluttered...oh how I would love uncluttered right now. That tv table is awesome!! I love it!
    Now will you send me your address so I can send you some “clutter” that I’ve been dying to send u but wanted to wait till u showed us your house to be sure it would fit.
    Hope you’re enjoying a new kinda fall!!!

  3. Your living room looks stunning. Enjoy your warm weekend. It's going to be in the 30's here.

  4. It's beautiful. I love the neutral shades with bursts of colour here and there. X

  5. Lovely colours. It's good to step out of our comfort zone now and again

  6. It's perfect for a Florida home. I love that it lends itself to a coastal vibe, without screaming beach house. And, the paintings are perfect.

  7. Vicki, I really love what you have done and the turquoise pops are perfect! One of my favorite colors! Classic Florida!

  8. Beautiful! I love the chairs with the seashells and the paintings are PERFECT! Enjoy your day dear Vicki, HUGS!
