The focal point of every house is its living room, so in order to make this more attractive you can try mixing and matching various elements. The living room usually has a large window offering a panoramic view of the ocean. You can have window treatments to match the ambiance of the room. Hanging valences or drapes in white or colors like soft blue, sheer pink etc., can improve the look of the room and make it more relaxing. For the furniture, you can have slipcovered furniture. Couches and chairs made of pine is an excellent idea. Paint the furniture in white for a calming effect. An ottoman is also a good option when it comes to seating. If you have a mantel, you can decorate it with seashells, coral reef and other memorabilia from the ocean.
The outward bow portion of a ship would make for a great bar top table if you have one in your home, or if you're thinking of setting one up. You can build it in such a way where the bow sticks out with the top flattened, for you to place your drinks and other items like say a lantern with a large seashell to one side. Place this bow structure strategically to one corner of your home especially if it a spacious apartment. You can also have a swinging forward bow that is lightweight, which you can easily push forward before entering your bar space.
When you want to decorate an apartment for girls, opt for shades of pink as the wall color. You can add accents of pink to your wall trims, or paint a wall white with thick vertical thick stripes in pink. Other options include yellow, purple, green, orange, etc. You can also go for light shades of these colors and paint your rooms. You can also experiment with ideas like the striped effect, or get a wall textured, or rubber stamp one wall with multi-color flowers and leave the rest of the three walls white. Use bed sheets with nice designs, pretty color lamps, vases, and curtains to decorate your apartment. For additional lights, you can opt for Chinese paper lamps, which are pretty cheap and available in various colors. You can try some DIY project like canvas art ideas, and hang them on the walls. You can always keep your apartment a bit empty, and keep adding to the decoration later, when you find the right stuff.
