Caribbean Blues With Pops of Pink

This small, feminine bedroom is bright and cheery thanks to teal walls and accents of coral and hot pink.

Nightstand Stand-In

Since the 11-foot wall behind the bed couldn't accommodate a pair of nightstands, a black lacquer console table was used instead.

Mixed Patterns

With so much blue on the walls, a mix of patterns was used to break up its intensity. Playful pillows introduce a mix of large-scale stripes and medium-scale lattice while a nubby, aqua blanket adds texture.

Mirrored Console Table/Nightstand

The console table/nightstand offers concealed storage, open space to keep things tidy in baskets and surface area for frames and lighting.

Chic Sitting Area

A vintage dresser, 70's lamps and a comfy chair create an inviting sitting area across from the bed.

Custom Look on a Budget

For a custom touch without the custom price tag, a sprayed coat of teal lacquer gave new life to a vintage dresser.

Ombre Rug

An ombre area rug made of New Zealand wool adds warm contrast against the cool-toned walls. Since hot pink is an intense color, the ombre effect prevents the pink from overwhelming the space.

A Masculine Touch

To prevent the space from looking too feminine, the homeowner added draperies in a gender-neutral black and white stripe as well as inverted box pleats to evoke a menswear look.

MCM Style

A classic modern tulip table adds a touch of organic material and sculptural shape to the seating area.

Gingham Print

A comfy, upholstered chair adds a preppy touch to the room with a large-scale gingham print in white and hot pink.
