Great Ideas for Beach Inspired Bedrooms

This is a follow-up to my last vacation post on the New Smyrna Beach Penthouse.  Even though we are back in California now...showing these photos lets me relive our fabulous "House Swap" vacation.
This is the master bedroom.  The bleached wood planks on the accent wall add 
texture to what was probably a generic condominium wall.
The view from the bedroom windows was so lovely to wake up to in the morning.
More great artwork!
Here is the room at night with a comfortable reading chair and wall to wall seagrass carpeting.
I like this towel cabinet in the master bathroom...more use of the bleached wood...
nice touch with the rolled beach towels.
This is the daughter's room (she is a darling girl and sees my daughter often in 
New York city, where they both live).
Instead of closet doors...grommeted drapes are used...great idea.
Cute light fixtures in her bathroom.
More of Clair's artwork...I recognize the two children as Clair's kids when they were younger.
This is a cozy corner in the bedroom.  Nice scale and pattern.

There is a balcony off this bedroom with a view of the inlet.  
We saw lots of dolphins swimming out there.

Just off the entry is this office that  has a trundle bed covered in linen.
I plugged my computer in at this desk...love these shelves.

Here is the son's room, where our son, Tommy stayed.
Great iron beds, convenient baskets for storage or to place your suitcase on...
I like the floating shelves above the beds, too.
More drapes instead of closet doors...love it.
Here's the jetty that is formed at the beginning of the inlet.
There was a storm right before we got there...and look at all the pink coral that my daughter, 
Alie and I picked up on our walk.
It was fun and relaxing...and almost a year since our last vacation.  
I feel re-energized and inspired for some cool projects in the works.

Thanks for visiting!

  6. Love all the ideas! I was thinking about purchasing a bench similar to the one in the bedroom but for a coffee table. We are on a limited budget and my mom said we could always move it to our bedroom. I also thought it could work as additional seating in our dining room. I love a piece that can be moved effortlessly from one room to another and for some reason this post confirmed that I am ready to purchase!

  18. Beautiful...love all of the touches of natural wood and the light paint colors. Of course being back in California in your neck of the woods is not too shabby either :)

  19. You're so lucky to have been able to spend a week here - both the home and the views are stunning! The home has a great beachy vibe without being too themey. The bleached wood reminds me of driftwood, and adds a wonderful organic element. Love all the beautiful blues too :-)

  25. So pretty...I love the idea of using drapery panels instead of closet doors. The planked walls are fabulous and how wonderful to have found all that pink coral with Alie. I'm sure you will display it in an amazingly creative way and it will bring back a flood of memories of this trip every time you see it.
