{Interior Design} Beachy Blue Bedroom

Master of the most important rooms in your beach cottage. It's the place where you should feel complete and total relaxation. A place where you are surrounded by the things you love; that make you happy; that bring a smile to your face.

I've been working on our Master Bedroom for two years and it is STILL a work in is getting close but not quite right yet. I'm always on the lookout for inspiring beachy bedrooms and found one that I just had to share with you.

Michelle of Emerald Cove is one of those people that continually astounds me with everything she does. Not only is she a busy mom, wife, daughter, sister, and friend who puts all her love into those things that are close to her - she is also a wonderful blogger who shares her journey of  finding the simple things out of the everyday chaos and joy that comes with them! We have many similarities i.e. music, designers, the beach so I feel like I "know" her. I guess that's why I fell in love with her newly redesigned "beachy blue" master bedroom. Thank you, Michelle, for everything you do - you really make the world a more beautiful place!

Beachy Bedroom by Michelle of Emerald Cove

"My bedroom is the one place that is mine to relax and unwind in, to lay in bed and be able to look out my window at the stars and be surrounded for 8 hours or so by the things that I love.

So I went back to my beachy blues and white, added some more treasures and gave my windows and bed that breezy feel with new curtains.

I am really happy with the way it turned out and so happy with the "frantel" (thank you Lisa from Informal Home, I love that word! :) )

The walls were painted with "Shoreline Mist" from Behr or Glidden, now I can't remember....must be too many paint fumes.

I added two sheer panels that have a crinkle look to them (they are the same that I used for my daughters room) to each window and hung at the level of the board and batton and then draped one panel on each of the bed posts.

I can't wait until I can open the windows and feel the warm breezes and watch the sheers blow in the wind.....aahhhhh summer breezes!!!

My wire basket-o-driftwood and a driftwood garland that I purchased last summer.

I still kept the same ruffled gray bedding but added white sheets and blue pillow cases (I got the bedding at TJ Maxx).

My bedroom is also the favorite spot for the cats, they must enjoy the beach too! :)

So there is my little paradise away from paradise, a place that I can unwind and dream of the sea.  Thank you so much for following me on yet another bedroom redo, I will be back later to show you some of my favorite little details."
