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.
This petite guest bedroom combines pastel colors to create the ultimate calming design. Muted yellow walls work well with the light green headboard of the bed and matching window treatments, while the crisp white framed windows and textured bedding add a classic vibe.
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.
A green seashell patterned backsplash gives this spacious contemporary kitchen a coastal design. White cabinets provide lots of storage and blend perfectly with the double kitchen islands topped with blue and white quartz countertops. Navy and white bar chairs provide seating beneath woven basket pendant lights.
A round brass chandelier hangs in the center of this calming coastal living room with crisp white walls and navy accents. Upholstered armchairs and a large striped sofa with throw pillows share a beautiful tree root coffee table, all positioned in front of the brick fireplace with a wooden mantel.
