Instead of buying all-new furniture to create a calm coastal environment in her living room, designer Lori Rourk transformed her existing furniture. "All of this furniture in its existing state was very dark and gloomy. I loved the lines of all of these pieces, so instead of buying new, I would recreate my vision to be light and airy," Rourk says.
White nightstands flank a cream upholstered bed covered in lovely blue-gray linens in this coastal master bedroom. A natural fiber rug softens the weathered wood floors, and a charming white dresser coordinates with the nightstands. The overall look is calming, relaxing and inviting.
