Walls the soft hue of sea mist and a pair of tranquil tropical paintings turn this California bedroom into a soothing retreat. A soft blue quilted coverlet borrows its color from the walls, while a traditional rug grounds the space and pairs nicely with the banded and monogrammed bedding. Beams criss-cross the ceiling and echo the lines of the board and batten walls.
If you're looking for a spa-like feeling, try muted greens with more gray undertones than white. This color is fresh, understated and really evokes a feeling of cleanliness. Skip popular kid tones like pink and blue, and instead try shades of aloe which work well in spaces for boys and girls alike.
Arched open doorways create stylish movement throughout the turns of this foyer design. A sea green wall color softly livens up the space. Hardwood floor is used in each room for a cohesive and polished finish.
The tray ceiling is painted the focal color and is offset by soft gold walls and antique white trim. Schumacher silk plaid draperies and the custom-designed bedding repeat the hues in contrasting patterns for extra textural interest.
Sea green walls create a calm but colorful base for this living room design. A striped armchair combines the green wall color and the yellow shade of the sofa. A red brick fireplace surround and wood coffee table finish the traditional look of the room.
Ethereal white curtains, deep sea green walls, and simple white bedding accented by the blue quilt and vintage lumbar pillow give this bedroom a calm and stylish look. Vintage Lane side tables as nightstands brings a touch of mid-century style to the design. White cube lamp frames on thin stands fit the light look.
A white coffered ceiling and light sea green walls create a soft frame for the deeper tones and heavier furniture used to decorate this living room. Hunter green tiles create a fireplace surround while the brown tile hearth compliments the wood mantel. Thick wood arm chairs are padded with beige cushions and turned in to face the rich wood coffee table centered in the room.
This area of the bedroom features a sharp, untreated wood wardrobe. A small but functional black and white desk hugs the wall leaving open floor space in the room. Blue watercolor paintings softly decorate the room over the deep green walls.
Sea green walls create a soft frame in the natural light of this staircase hallway. A warm yellow lampshade over the table lamp draws out the yellow coloring of the stain glass trim surrounding the windows. A wood table fills the space and provides support for a simple display to decorate the area.
At the end of the mudroom, a door opens into the powder room. Because the home is near the water, the designers decked the space with wallpaper that features fish, octopus and other sea creatures. A large white-trimmed mirror and pedestal sink easily stand out against the blue and green.
The one-and-a-half acres making up this remarkable property sit on a bluff overlooking the Caribbean in St. Barts. The buildings—there are eight in all—represent the classic Caribbean architecture: white wood shingle sides topped with a green roof.
