Twelve-inch wide cabana stripes on the walls help tie together the various fabrics of this bold bedroom. The large, tufted settee is just another glamorous yet comfortable touch.
The glass mosaic tile backsplash and the vanity’s mirror-paneled doors provide touches of sleek sophistication. Tall, slender, curvy proportions of the vanity’s sconces play to the high ceilings.
Because of the shape of this room, the only space for the bed was underneath a set of bay windows. Swing arm lamps were attached directly to the headboard, upholstered in a bold orange. The low-slung alcove headboard runs the entire length of the window.
Horizontal bamboo planking is a clean, modern take on the traditional four-poster bed. The bright blues and greens on the walls and in the window treatments are amped up versions of the coverlet’s color palette. A large white bolster pillow on the bed makes the room more casual.
Just off the bedroom, this dressing table makes guests feel at home. Sides designed the box-pleated valance to follow the curved lines of the barrel-vaulted ceiling.
Charcoal-colored beaded board runs horizontally as bunk bed siding. Sides added nautical reading lamps and little hinged doors made of plywood panels wrapped in raffia and embellished with nail heads.
Matching coverlets and wall upholstery in lively warm and cool colors give the room an interesting look. Made by Sunbrella, the fabric is very durable and kid friendly.
Bocce balls for giants are whimsical accessories for a room dedicated to fun and games. The large room calls for big-scale prints, like the flowery curtains.

A stacked stone fireplace and cheeky duck figurines are a nod to coastal cabin life.
Three twin beds are built-in to the wall as daybeds. Curved wood divisions break it up and add visual interest. The cushions behind the beds are hung up on cabinet knobs, and the stripes in the fabric emphasize the height of the room.
Wicker furniture in streamlined silhouettes turns this beach house must-have into sophisticated pieces. Gauzy curtains filter harsh sunlight and add elegance to the casual space.
With its industrial base, warm cedar top, and plush stools, the bar-height table is the perfect place to gather around for drinks and food hot off the grill. The sconce and a pair of statement-making lanterns add an old-world feel to the brand new space.
A grouping of teak Adirondack chairs around a matching table is a great gathering spot on this gracious deck for enjoying the views of the marshlands surrounding the house.
