In Chris' bedroom, a mix of high and low created his designer bed ensemble. A custom bed upholstered in automotive vinyl was the area's biggest purchase; however, deceptively budget-friendly purchases were made for the remainder of the space. The demilune-shaped chests came from ZGallerie for $600 each, and not only do they add an elegant touch, they offer concealed storage. Table lamps atop the chests were found at a flea market and updated with red paint and new metallic drum shades. While Ralph Lauren bedding in a classic paisley print was a splurge, custom pillows made from $6.99 per yard IKEA tartan fabric kept the budget in check. To allow Chris to easily change up the looks of his bedding, the backs of each pillow were covered in a nautical print from Duralee.
Mismatched stripes work together here with classic navy balancing out the bolder red and light blue color scheme in the bed skirt and bolster pillows. Plants reside in woven hanging baskets to add visual interest and texture.
The loft area is transformed into a coastal-inspired living area, complete with a navy sectional decorated in a mix of throw pillows. Navy-and-white Roman shades dress the windows, while a herringbone rug adds texture to the hardwood floor.
The wood grain porcelain tile floors are soften by a natural fiber rug in the living room. Blue and white upholstered furniture plays into the coastal palette, while nautical elements –– the mounted marlin and anchor throw pillows –– crank the seaside theme up a notch.
Two bunk beds with pipe ladders provide four guests with cozy places to rest. Pink and blue striped pillows give the room a pop of pastel color, tying in perfectly with the shared blue nightstand and anchor print wallpaper in the center of the room.
Pale blue walls serve as the backdrop for this cheery gender-neutral nursery. A chandelier adds sparkle over the crib, which sits below an octopus triptych. A blue armchair provides a cozy seat, while a red trellis-patterned area rug ties in the throw pillow and canvas storage bin.
This charming nursery is decked out with finishes and furnishings that are practical for a little one but also versatile enough to grow along with the child. Hand-picked accessories are nautical without being kitschy: a whale mobile, graphic lobster pillow and red marine light fixtures.
What might be considered dead space on a second-floor landing is turned into a cozy nook for reading or napping thanks to a nautical-print daybed piled with pillows. Drawers in the base of the bed offer extra storage.
The homeowners' love of all things nautical is on display in their living room thanks to a maritime flag motif, which inspired the throw pillows on the sofas and inserts to the media cabinet's doors. A navy-and-white rug fits the theme and anchors the space. Navy and red stockings add a special Christmas touch that works with the nautical theme for a "Merry Time" Christmas.
