Haywaters Lane: Coastal guest bedroom

Our Haywaters Lane clients asked us to design a casual, coastal-inspired guest room where their friends and family could take a deep breath, kick off their flip flops, and enjoy the view. We begrudgingly agreed. GRIN!

Haywaters Lane: Office/Guest bedroom

When our Haywaters clients requested an office that could double as a comfortable second guest room, we jumped at the chance to design a versatile room that serves multiple purposes… and looks good doing it!

 

Guest Bedroom Ofice Board Revised

 

The look

We chose a neutral palate punctuated by a pair of fun accent lamps (they remind us of sea urchins) and an amazing wallpapered accent wall. You can read about our first foray with Tempaper here (spoiler alert: we loved it!). Rustic wood and metal end tables provide textural contrast with the oversized seagrass ottoman, a nod to the home’s coastal vibe. A midcentury-inspired desk and masculine leather desk chair give the owners a comfortable, functional workspace and the sofa opens into a comfortable guest bed to round out this room’s livable duel-purpose!

A tailored office sofa that converts to a cozy guest bed fit for summer night snuggle parties? Yes, please!

Summer homes are made in the winter: Process

You know that saying Summer bodies are made in the winter? Well we think that the same thing goes for summer homes! You’ve got to start early or risk spending your summer days brushing sawdust from between your toes instead of sand.

Summer homes are made in the winter.

North Fork Design Co.

When our clients enlist our help designing their summer home’s interior, we dig in when the snow is falling to ensure the space is ready for a long lazy Memorial Day weekend. We’ve been working all winter on a client’s Cape Cod summer home (yes, of course we’re jealous!) with a to-die-for “Great Room” that will host everything from rainy family game nights to dreamy midsummer soirees.

 

“Before” photos

Talk about potential: the first time we stepped foot in this room, we swooned hard over the vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, fairytale fireplace, hardwood floors, and natural light. This is what we’re working with–lucky us!

 

Design elements

  • Classic Cape Cod style home
  • Incorporate nautical elements without being too “themey”
  • Light, bright, and family friendly
  • Two seating areas ideal for entertaining
  • Extra-large rug unifies the space (we’re Rug Nerds–we wrote about it here!)
