Seaside Sleep Nook

Soft blue walls and neutral floors, reminiscent of sky and water against sand, are calming. Taupe pillows and nautical-striped bedding continue the palette, so the room feels cohesive. Weathered pieces, like an antiqued mirror and an unfinished chair, give the room a casual, tossed-together quality that makes it feel friendly and indestructible, which is relaxing. Layers of natural textures create a luxurious but subtle depth, as in wood floors against a sea-grass rug against a reed basket. Even the nubby spare blankets factor into the lushness. Ocean-themed details feel soothing, but you don’t want to go overboard with them (pun intended). Vintage photos of boats, a conch shell, and a brass lamp are just seaworthy enough to create a vacation vibe.
