Christmas decor usually involves winter themes, but that doesn’t mean you can’t put a new spin on it! Give your home a festive holiday spirit with a warm beach house theme tied into it. Here are 7 coastal Christmas decorating ideas for your living room.


1. Decorate Your Coastal Christmas Living Room With A Tropical Color Scheme

Bring your coastal Christmas theme to life by decorating with a tropical color scheme!

While the traditional colors of Christmas are red and green, you can still create a festive holiday living room with this unique color selection.

Decorate with coastal colors such as white, teal, light green, and pale pink. Any colors that remind you of the beach and ocean will be suitable.

To make it feel more like Christmas, use holiday accents such as ornaments or even a colored tree. This will help you easily tie the themes together.

2. Combine Classic Christmas Characters With Coastal Symbols

A simple and quick way to combine the coastal theme with Christmas is to combine characters and symbols through accents.

The combination of these core elements will tie these themes together smoothly and give your living room a nice balance.

Use accents with Christmas themes such as snowmen, Santa, trees, and string lights. Combine them with coastal themes like starfish, sand, and anchors.

It’s especially helpful to find these elements already combined in items such as figurines, wall art, and throw pillows.
