One of the easiest ways to decorate a room is to make it light and airy. There are a lot of colors that are usually associated with the beach, light blues, yellows, sand, white, ivory... using all of these colors as well as mixing in a few pieces of dark furniture, here is a board that will show you just how bright and beautiful a room can be.

The room as shown above is fairly informal, but that doesn't mean that you can't do this scheme using formal pieces. That's the great thing about it.
This color scheme can be used in a living room, a bed room, a dining room, even a bathroom. If you love this scheme and want to make it work for your room and your style, let me know! I can always try to help.
