So many joyful prints turn this guest bedroom into a whimsical wonderland. Pink palm leaves decorate the ceiling. The bed mimics terrazzo tile. And piled on top are a jumble of pillows in different shapes.
Boasting an airy, tropical theme, this outdoor room at Naples Bay features stenciled palm leaves and rattan furnishings. An integrated microwave and cabinet and counter space make it easy to prepare a quick snack without the hassle of going inside to the kitchen.
Windows curve around the bed in this guest room, offering panoramic views of Seattle's Puget Sound. To complement the coastal setting, the designers outfitted this space with pillows and accents in sandy hues, as well as a duvet cover featuring palm leaves. A driftwood-esque desk increases the space's functionality.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, this once dated living room got a chic update with a fresh coat of white paint, neutral wood flooring and a plush, white mid-century sectional sofa. Designer Sarah Richardson chose a modern wood coffee table and large decorative palm leaves to add warmth and interest to this otherwise neutral space.
Who said formal needs to be boring? Add vibrant color to a formal dining space to create a relaxing, fun vibe. Shades of blue are divided by a white chair rail that unite the wall and curtains. The plush, blue tufted sofa becomes the focal point, accented with multi-colored throw pillows. The green palm tree leaves add natural dimension and color.
Blue and gray patterned chair cushions add a touch of color against the neutral tones in this balcony design and the green from the surrounding palms. Natural wood creates a beautiful ceiling decoration over this sitting space and the circular fire pit area. A short wrought iron railing keeps the space feeling open and leaves an unobstructed view of the beautiful bay.
As you select plants to serve as focal points in your décor, consider how large the plant grows and also how quickly it achieves that size. Plants like sentry palm and Swiss cheese plant (Monstera deliciosa) can double their size in a few years, given the right conditions. Chinese money plant, on the other hand, maintains a tidy size, growing slowly to 8 to 12 inches tall. With thick, succulent-like leaves, the plant doesn’t demand much water and thrives in low light. Unusual, round leaves make this plant a conversation piece.
Neutral stone tiles create a solid frame and thick sitting rim around this balcony hot tub. Five waterfall streams arch into the hot tub. Potted palms give a tropical element to the design fitting to the expansive ocean view. Glass walls leave the space feeling open and connected to the surroundings.
