A soft blue ocean mural graces the walls of this kid's bedroom designed by HGTV Design Star contestant Julie Khuu. Nautical accessories complete the ocean theme, and white bedding keeps the space feeling fresh.
This family loves the water and are enthusiastic amateur divers. They wanted an underwater theme in the main floor bathroom, so the countertop is made out of recycled glass and evokes the natural waves of the ocean, while the back splash, made of shell-patterned strip tiles-recall the world under the water's surface.
The color theme in this contemporary beach house reflects the beautiful and soothing ocean hues. Exterior glass doors fold back onto themselves to provide a true openness to the adjoining deck area. Clerestory windows allow even more light into the space.
A framed print of ocean coral adds a subtle pop of color, which is echoed by the decorative coral on the nautical white dresser, in this neutral bedroom. The weathered wood bed frame and bench also nod to the room's coastal theme.
The sea blue tiled floor is designed to look like the ocean floor and picks up the Noah's Ark theme from the little boy's bedroom. The pinstripe walls add pattern to the classic space, while the white vanity boasts open shelving for the easy retrieval of towels and toys.
A balcony offers a bird's eye view of this traditional great room, where the central dining space flows into the kitchen, living room and sun deck beyond. A large lantern-style chandelier has the size and presence to light the space, while the nautical feel of its rope-like design complements the home's coastal location and theme. The dining room opens to the outdoor space and offers comfortable, lounge-style seating, inviting guests to linger and enjoy the ocean views.
