Natural light illuminates this coastal guest bedroom. Black metal frames the windows, while white bed linens cover the gray upholstered bed. Turquoise pillows and a striped rug add pops of color, while white nightstands with glass lamps are positioned on either side of the bed.
Influenced by Colonial and Victorian architecture, the uniquely American Farmhouse home style looks just right with tall, narrow, double-hung windows, bay windows and window groupings, and 2-over-2 grille patterns. Black exterior window frames add striking contrast for curb appeal.
Steel, limestone, wood and concrete mingle on this exterior for a textural, contemporary look. A black framed French door with sidelights and a transom window makes up the front entrance. Modern lantern sconces flank the front door.

A large sliding glass door brings sunlight into this bright, country bedroom. A cream comforter features a subtle pattern softening the look of the black metal bed frame. A contemporary red chair and green lamp bases add touches of color to the wood and neutral base.
