I'm a little obsessed with this room (above) and all it's glory. I mean, it's perfect on so many levels! I'm not big into themed rooms or homes, I like to add touches of a theme but not go out full blown- because hey, once I'm over the theme, then what? But this room has inspired me to go a little crazy in the decorating depo and have an ocean/beach/vacation themed guest suite, I'm sure my visitors will love. Plus, I feel like the room above has just the right amount of modern and beach, without being totally overkill.
I've got a huge guest room to decorate... and fast. I have family coming to stay with us in just a couple of months and I want the space to be warm and welcoming. It's in the basement, but it has a large window and freshly painted cream walls. It's a very large space that I can do a lot with. As I've put out there before, I'm loving all the neutrals and earth tones that are everywhere. And beach decor is perfect to incorporate all these modern neutrals, shapes, and colors.
