Capiz shell chandeliers, soothing blue walls and bright blue and green accessories lend a beachy feel to this living space. Exposed wood beams and hardwood floors add warmth to the room, while a large white sectional is the perfect spot to cozy up with views of the sea beyond.
Tropical Dressing Room and Bath With Terra Cotta Tile
This master bathroom features a walk-in shower overlooking a pool and deck. The Roman shade in the shower is made from moisture-resistant indoor-outdoor fabric while a bamboo and rattan chest provides storage.
Wood and Blue-Glass Tile Staircase With Modern Railing
A variety of materials are used to make the staircase in this gorgeous coastal-style home. Dark wood steps and blue-glass tile risers complement the horizontal metal railing and the white wood posts and baseboards. The blue tile lends color, texture and protection against scuff marks.
Breezy Covered Porch With Tropical Waterfront View
This relaxing covered porch boasts blue and neutral accents throughout nestled under a wood paneled ceiling. A glass coffee table sits at its center, while arched doorways give way to a tropical waterfront view.
Don't forget to incorporate plants and greenery in the bathroom. The asymmetrical nature of growing things (in design lingo this is called fractal) will help offset the bathroom's many right angles and straight lines.
Striped awnings shade this stone tile deck from the Caribbean sun. Potted topiary, potted citrus and a palm tree bring tropical lushness to the space. Striped chairs allow you to sit awhile and enjoy the view.
