Guest Room Update - Beach Vibes

 

Sometimes it is the smallest inspiration that can lead you in decor decisions.  When doing an update on one of our guest rooms, I knew I wanted a beachy feel, so our guests would immediately know they had arrived in Florida.  Some things I already had on the walls, but wanted to tie it all together and the little surfboard sign with “beach vibes” written on it felt like what I was going for.

I like to mix all shades of blues and greens, just like the Gulf of Mexico.  It’s also a calm and cool palate after a day in the sun.  The queen bed is new (Pottery Barn) and has four storage drawers underneath, allowing me to not have a large dresser in a not so big room.  The light blue quilt and shams (Pottery Barn) have a subtle wave pattern and are quite lightweight, so more comfortable in our year around hot weather.  The end tables (Wayfair) have a coastal feel and have storage as well.  To tie all the colors and beach vibe theme together, I found the surfboard print (Minted for Pottery Barn) to hang above the bed.

I’m happy with the finished product and the overall feel of the room. Now, who will be the first guests to enjoy it?

Other sources, but old: lamps - Pier One, painted surfboard - Etsy, basket - Homegoods, Florida custom prints - Etsy

  1. You did a beautiful job in decorating. Cool feeling and comfortable. I love the colors, subtle and not garish at all. I can imagine that you'll soon have people booking dates to stay with you.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

    2. Hmmmm, I don’t live in Florida, still up north, and I love tropical colors. Winters are too gloomy here to not have something pretty.
