Colorful Coastal Bedrooms
The colors and design of this bedroom are slightly reminiscent of coral. The bright persimmon-and-white duvet are grounded with a soft blue coverlet. The squared-off headboard’s casual slipcover, made with a soft blue linen, can be removed and tossed in the laundry.
The architects designed a row of three built-in beds on the third floor loft, each lit with a marine-style sconce and closed off with curtains. Storage areas for the bunks line up across the hall, with a cubby and a drawer for each bed. The colorful bedspreads and rug add color and vibrancy to the space.
A classic striped headboard and bed skirt are combined with Indian batik-inspired textiles for a sophisticated look. The curtains’ woven tape trim adds natural textures, and a photograph of an alligator above the bed is a nod to Louisiana's gator-inhabited marshlands.
Shades of blue are everywhere in this beach house. A floral blue-and-white bedspread adds a tropical touch, and a built-in platform bed and shelves make smart use of the small room.
The graphic black-and-white bedding on simple pencil post beds makes a bold statement against the muted blue in this tranquil room. Prints of coral above the beds help add a beachy feel.
In this nautical-themed twin bedroom, red cannonball beds reside under the dormered roof. Sculpted metal fish swim above, and a fly-fishing basket lamp underscores the home’s proximity to the water.
