People get carried away adding too many beach souvenirs such as oars, hibiscus flower patterns and wave designs on the walls.

For a classier look, opt for a beach concept in your home.

A beach concept is more subtle and adds richer elements that don’t scream beach day, but whisper cool, calm vibes.

For this look, the designer suggested using natural materials from the beach, such as wicker and wood.

You can also add elements of pampas grass and feathers in neutral colored vases.

The designer said these tips give a “more coastal vibe” to your space.

This designer also shared three common living room mistakes, regardless of your design concept.

The first error explained in the TikTok video tries to match each piece of furniture, or as she said “matching sets of furniture”.

She said “you don’t want to look too cookie cutter and the same.”

The designer also cautioned against hanging your artwork too high.

Finally, if you have a futon and it’s not for practical reasons, throw it away.
