Part 4: Creating the Cottage

The guest room was a really fun space to put together. I knew I wanted it to be a soothing space but with all the coastal vibes!

The walls are painted SW Retiring Blue. It's a neutral enough blue that it gave me options with the rug, bedding, and drapery. The rattan bed paired with linen sheets and a seersucker duvet cover are the perfect mix of coastal and southern! The striped rug gave me Bahamian water vibes without being too bright.

I kept the color scheme of blue and coral going on the drapes. I made the drapes myself with fabric from designer Viv Designs on Spoonflower. The shell pattern is soft without feeling too "beachy." Making drapes and throw pillows is one of my favorite things to do and an easy way to change the look of a room with simple fabric. I buy most of my fabrics on Spoonflower. There so many choices and it directly supports the artist! Win Win! Here are some of my favorite designers:

To complete the guest room is a private bath. It's classic and simple with Carrera marble floors and vanity top, subway tile bath surround, and crisp white cabinetry. The vanity is from Restoration Hardware. They have a lot of great options for vanities and countertops. I love that this bath is timeless while keeping with the simple, coastal theme of the home.

Looking forward to hosting lots of friends here!
