In the bedroom of a beach house on the Indian Ocean, designer Nelly Reffret took a creative approach to the project’s extremely tight budget. She says: “I searched for bargains and only selected items that I knew would work perfectly in the space. The headboard is a discontinued Ikea style, which I painted in a sandy color. I found the suitcases on the curb during trash collection (you know that saying about someone's trash being someone's treasure...).” When combining a variety of furniture styles, she advises allowing size and scale to guide your choices. “Before starting to decide on a look, it's important to check what will fit in the space: width and depth matter. Scale is another important factor. Too many large pieces and the room will look cluttered; too many small pieces, and there will be no sense of cohesion, no sense of ‘grounding’. Having one item of large scale next to smaller items can create an interesting focal point to the room, just like the headboard does in this bedroom.”
A huge arched mirror mimics a window and makes this dramatic foyer feel even bigger. The floors are chevron-cut porcelain; their look is polished, but they're also easy to clean, a win win in a home with kids.
