As some of you know we are in the process of renovating our family beach bungalow after Hurricane Sandy and making good progress, can’t wait to share. For today I am designing the bedrooms and needed some fresh ideas to get started, let’s get inspired.
Vintage Character- In my family we adore vintage finds, collections and treasures. A beach bungalow is the perfect place to add some vintage character with an old bench, distressed nightstand and bottle collection.
Hanging Bunk Beds- Beach cottages are places that family and friends love to gather. Maximizing space and adding beds is always high on the priority list. This fun idea uses nautical inspiration hanging beds from ropes, be sure to bolt to the floor.
Paddle Headboard- Creating a headboard from vintage paddles adds dimension and a touch of whimsy, love it. This same idea can be created with whatever nautical treasures you find.
Coastal Motifs - Keeping it simple with a clean and crisp color scheme incorporating simple coastal prints and a bold shell print on the pillow, fabulous.
A Pop of Color- In many coastal homes I design the color scheme is soothing and peaceful, adding a pop of color here and there can be fresh and exciting.
