Welcome to our little beach house's "living room" which also happens to be our kitchen and our dining room! When we embarked on remodeling the RV, I was positive we were going to get a white couch. I was positive we were going to get a jute rug, and I was positive were were going to have all neutrals in this space. You can see things didn't go exactly as planned.
I am always saying you have to work with a space. We can want to decorate something a certain way, but I believe it turns out how it is supposed to (sometimes in spite of us). The white couch that I was swooning over was on back order so bf and I decided to order a futon for the temporary time being, and eventually we could move it into the Florida Room we would be adding (still haven't done that). I wanted a white futon that didn't look "cheap." White was hard to come by, but he ended up finding this blue futon. It really has a luxurious look in person, it looks like linen. For the money (it was under $200) we couldn't pass it up.
I had already found a blue rug for the kitchen area (which again is part of one giant room) and I had thought I might just keep it temporarily. However once we found the futon it all just came together. I decided that if we were going to add color, we may as well do it up! So this blue and white space was born.
I have been asked about the curtains quite a bit. I got them at Ocean State Job Lots so I don't have a link for you. It definitely was happenstance. I had tried and tried with no avail to find curtains for this space that I liked but weren't going to leave me broke. I actually got the idea while in OSJL to possibly use a shower curtain and cut it up to make drapes. I wasn't sure if the shower curtain in my hand was going to clash with the couch though. I remembered seeing some blue linen curtains, so I brought the shower curtain over to hold them up and see if they would match. They didn't match at all, but when I looked up, someone had put these curtains on a hook that wasn't there's. I fell...hard. The price...$12 for two panels. Yup, that was a no brainer! So although I can't give you the link, I can give you advice to be open to checking new places, you never know what you'll find! If you really want something similar, these curtains from JC Penney have a similar look.
The recliners also came from Amazon. I really wanted two and most people that was crazy, but we found "slim" recliners and they fit the space perfectly. They are a different blue than the futon, which I was worried about, but the rug had different blues, so I decided to just do a bunch of different blues throughout the space so that nothing would look out of place. The recliner company seem to rotate the colors they come in, so if you want a specific color you may have to check back.
The little marble table was from Nordstrom Rack in their sale section. They don't have it on their site anymore, butthis one is similar, if you prefer a silver base as opposed to gold, this one is similar as well and is on sale. Someday i'm going to cover the base with jute, but for now it does the trick. The lamp is from The Christmas Tree Shops and the throw pillows are a mix of CTS, Target, and TJ Maxx. Finally the little candle holders were a gift from my mom years ago, I think they are from Pier One. The throw is from CTS as are the rugs, which came in a set. By using a rug set (runner, area, and door) I was able to get a cohesive look, while still identify separate "areas" of the camper.
I realize this space might not be helpful for sticks and bricks homes but hopefully it inspired you a little anyways. If you are remodeling an RV, or even furnishing an apartment or another tiny space, the best advice I can give is to measure, measure, measure, and then measure again. You will get much better search results if you are searching by measurements. Also, you don't want to fall in love with a piece of furniture only to find out it won't fit. You will have to compromise some things, but overall you should be able to fit everything you can in a large space into a small one by scaling down the furniture size and really thinking about what you are putting into the space.
I hope this was helpful! Please let me know if you have any questions. I can't believe how quickly summer, and our days at The Little Beach House are coming to an end. I'm going to be sad when we close her up for the winter. I'm ready though to start some room refreshes in my house. What spaces are you thinking about giving an update to?
