When designing this bedroom I wanted something that was inviting for the kids who came to visit. I have two little kids and when we used the property I wanted a place for them to play. I kept the color scheme in cool tones to reflect the colors of the ocean.
Since I was designing this space so far from home I had to design the space quickly and efficiently. Many of the items I was able to pick up at Target, Homegoods or Facebook Marketplace. At the end of the project my kids came to visit. They loved playing in the space. It created lasting memories for years to come.
The bed that is picture was a Facebook marketplace find. I was told it was made by Haverty's, although it is no longer on their webpage. I paired it with matching navy seersucker bedding found at Homegoods. The bedside table brought in a bamboo element to the room. A top of the table, I placed a lamp that looks like it is made of seashells. The lamp was perfect to bring in more of the coastal vibe to the room. The bedside alarm clock offers a charging port for guests. I covered the floor with a jute rug from Hand and Hearth collection by Target. The jute helps to capture some of the sand that is tracked in from the beach.
I pick up the curtains and curtain rod from target. I chose to go with the taller (95 inch) curtain link to allow the space to feel taller. The curtains are also blackout so they darken the room a lot, which is perfect for those late raisers. The chrome on the curtain rod gave a more modern element to space. The striped bench was a splurge from Homegoods. It was a bit pricey but it made the space much more complete, fitting perfectly under the window.
The shelf was another Homegoods find. It was solid wood so I knew it would hold up to renters. The distressed wood on the bookcase reminded me of the driftwood you find on the beach. I paired the bookcase with vibrant toys in greens and blues. The blocks and bowling pins set is meant for outdoor use, but being solid wood I thought it was ideal for the kiddos who come to stay. There are multiple sites online that carry similar outdoor games. The wicker baskets again incorporates the beach vibes but give a little extra storage.
