In this Pottery Barn video, see interior designer India Hicks carve out a home office in a living room. India Hicks creates a space that is simplistic and summery with shells, straw hats and sling-style chairs.
The easy and stylish living room decorating ideas shown here can be easily achieved with unique design elements that you have collected over the years and some can be sourced from lifestyle stores like Pottery Barn. Here a collection of straw hats are displayed on a hat rack placed above the door. Curios like a pink elephant sculpture and wall art in pink and coral tones complement the beautiful blooms on the desk.
These living room decorating ideas bring to mind the time spent at the beach during summertime with the use of beach treasures in the decor. Shells are placed under glass cloches and a large one is placed on the desk. Sea-inspired elements also feature on the mantle like the large shell and the umbrella reminding us of those sudden showers at the beach to complete the beach themed look.
The home office design is highlighted with a ladder wall shelf and upholstery in neutral tones to create a bright, airy space. Textural elements like diamond pattern sisal rugs and wicker storage baskets are the perfect balance to this relaxed home office design.
