Nautical and Nice!

So excited to finally show you the downstairs master bedroom at Coast Awhile Cottage!  I had fallen in love with a blue and white pinstriped duvet at Ikea and we (my designer, Jane Coslick and I) used it as inspiration to put together this room with lots of flea market finds and a few new things to make a fun--not kitschy--take on "nautical".

We found this old trunk in the storage shed and brought it in for the foot of the bed. It reminds me of an old captain's chest and it offered some storage space.

Some new knobs on the vintage chest of drawers spruced things up along with the lamp and mirror from Home Goods.
It's amazing what a few new things and a some old things used in a new way can do...
