13 Coastal-Cool Living Rooms We're Ready to Call Home

You don't have to live on the beach to bring coastal style home.

Summer's on the horizon and I'm dying to feel the sand under my toes. With the closest beach a mere 372 miles away from HGTV Headquarters, my tropical oasis isn't just a hop, skip and a jump away, sadly. But I've found a nice cure for my craving and it just happens to be from my living room sofa.

Starting Sunday at 8pm/7c, you can catch two brand-new episodes of Beachfront Bargain Hunt, followed by two brand-new episodes of Caribbean Life at 9pm/8c, then two brand-new episodes of Island Life at 10pm/9c. You read right! Six back-to-back episodes of nothing but white, sandy beaches, crashing waves and drool-worthy houses we all wish we had. The best part? You don't have to be bikini-ready. (Personally, I'll be in my paint-splattered sweats.)

Join me, won't you? Follow along on Sunday using the hashtag #SunnySundays. But first, let's unwind with some refreshing coastal inspo. Can't you just feel that sea breeze?!
