Coastal Living Room Help Sign In/Join

I was attempting to have a classy coastal type living room, but somehow got very lost. Is there a way to fix this, or should I ditch everything and start over? It is a very small space.

I'm posting another photo. The rug is red and behind the chair is the patio door. To the left is the dining set. Lost on that too, but one thing at a time.

Just FYI. The couch is gold and the trim is brown in a wicker design. I admire those who can accept a challenge, however, I'm just decorating impaired ...and appreciate any assistance greatly

Hi crystaleyz!

I would work with the colors of the tropical painting and get smaller furniture if you can afford it but if you can't then paint your coffee table a soft blue as shown on the picture and swap the throw pillows for a color similar of those in your painting. The rug sms29s66 shared is pretty.

I think if you had a glass/wrought iron coffee table (something lighter in volume), a lighter colored lamp and some pillows that echo the colors in the painting, it will be more coastal.
