What Would Have Made Me Stay in the Living Room More than the Bed Room

I love going places. I am restless, and adventurous – particularly someone you can’t pin and bribe down in one place and expect her to lie there forever. There are even times I feel more like a bird, than a human. That’s why when asked how my future home would look like, I was particularly challenged. Because honestly, I was never home.

But whenever I am, I usually stay and lock myself in the bedroom. Going back on the thought though, I realized I should have stayed in the living room more, because that’s the place where my family usually spends a lot of time to watch movies, chat, and talk about what happened during the day. I miss those times, especially now that my mom isn’t here to welcome us with her finest dishes anymore.

On a lighter note, this inspired me to come up with ideas on what I think will make me stay in the living room more than my bedroom. I intend to make this dream design in my future home too. I want my future kids to be more interactive at home than I was. So I present to you my mood board for a beach-themed living room!


I love how homey and relaxing these details make me feel. I basically want to add a hanging sofa and some wooden or rattan chairs and tables to make the place feel like a resort.

I want to use this color palette too. The calm shades of blue, cream, brown and mauve makes me want to rest and enjoy a breezy afternoon in the living room with my family.


I want to use capiz, shells, and beach elements to add to the resort feel of the place. Mermaid accents and color gradients are additional intricacies I want to incorporate too.


I was blown away how this boat posed a valuable element in taking the design of this living room a notch higher. I wouldn’t have thought of that! Or maybe, the boat can be a make-shift sofa or table! The possibilities are endless!

Finally, going home is a thing of the past when heading back is an unpleasant feeling travelers dread after a wonderful vacation, a.k.a. #backtoreality. With a beach-themed design, everyday vacation is a reality! I can’t wait to make this dream living room! I can’t wait to have a vacation at my home everyday!

I also happen to find an incredibly good source for home designs and furniture. You may find exciting deals and awesome things at Arhaus! Like them on Facebook!

Hope you enjoyed this post. I will be happy to know your thoughts my dear merfriends! 🙂
