Decorating a beach cottage opens up a whole world of possibilities, from soft whites and pastels to the bolder, more colorful nautical tones.
The bedroom and en-suite bath that were to become my son's room were already painted and decorated in a nautical theme, so I continued with the theme with changes from a child's room to a more masculine room. I wanted to keep to a vintage style with old nautical figures, ship paintings, and rustic nautical decor.
Let's take a tour around the room and see close-up some of the vintage nautical decor.
What's a nautical room without a boat and captain? This vignette is on a shelf near a closet.
Another vignette on top of a chest of drawers. A pair of crusty old sailors, ready to tackle the next storm at sea.....
A wood border was placed along the wall at ceiling level with knobs for hanging items. A few wood buoys were added.
Using the Tommy Bahama pillows as the room inspiration, I chose red, navy, and a tea stained fabric for the bedding, keeping the look vintage nautical.
A comfy chair for reading or watching tv.
The en-suite bath is designed with white beadboard with red painted walls above.
And a nice view out the window to ponder buried treasure hunts or the next adventure at sea........
Thanks for stopping by Sea Glass Cottage!
