After I get all of the Christmas decorations put away, (our bedroom is the storage area during the holidays) I can finally begin to see the light and am ready to try something new for 2014. Not sure yet exactly what I want to do, but here's a few ideas that I have been collecting!
How about a nautical theme? Or in my case, it always has to have a little twist....
From Greg Norman's family beach house in Hobe Sound, Florida. Love this - great "nautical" colors, but not overwhelmed with a marine theme. I could do this. (featured in Coastal Living Magazine)
Ah...peaceful and fresh feeling with all of the white bedding. Crazy about the navy blue and white striped headboard and matching bedskirt. Wonderful use of space with the shelf above the bed too!
Really, really like this! A slight "British Colonial" feel, with nautical black and white art countered against all of the red and white. The signal flag pillows add just the right extra nautical punch. Great room from Joy Tribout Interiors!
Almost a little "French" Seaside style with the ticking stripes! Cute pom-pom throw on the end of the bed too - (TheLetteredCottage.net)
More of a cottage type of look - but where's the lighting? Cool round window though! Photographed by Andrew Waller, featured in House and Home
Or we could play it safe and go with a Barclay Butera nautical style room....
Love this sophisticated room in the Hampton Showhouse! Don't think that there is any way that Tom would go for the wave canopy bed in our tiny bedroom. Cool pillows and digging that indigo blue wall.
Sailor Style from Coastal Living. Love the subtle shades of gray blues and white. Great use of vintage oars on the wall. I do not like the canoe on the ceiling - would lay awake all night waiting for it to fall down. Nope, would not work for us!
Or how about this idea? My very own yacht stateroom! From Coastal Living, this would be great for a small space with the fun brass wall sconces and round porthole like mirror.
Ah.... what to do? Later this week, maybe I will take another look at some beach cottage
What do you all think?
