Ever want to embrace a trend — or maybe even a few — but you’re afraid to oversaturate your space with that look? Anything but overdone, this cottage bedroom showcases a mix of rarely-linked decor sensibilities — southwestern, industrial and nautical, interwoven with a hint of modern. Use of a unifying color scheme and a just a few key pieces from each style, along with some clever hybrid items, creates a unique and easy compatibility.

Sophisticated style choices coexist in this bedroom, yet it looks satisfyingly sparse and casual. Throw pillows with a simple chevron design bring to mind ship signal flags, but also fit with the area rug’s primitive stepped design. Equally at home in a harbor town tavern or an restored warehouse, the wood and rope chandelier bridges the room’s industrial and nautical elements. White and navy blue instantly conjures up a nautical vibe in this small coastal cottage bedroom, and with the colorway echoed in the Southwestern rug, the two styles are instantly reconciled. As a bonus, using a deep inky blue in a limited swath just behind the headboard creates a feeling of depth as the wall recedes under the sway of the dark color.

What’s your favorite style pairing?

This amazing nautical bunk room is a kid’s dream bedroom!  The imaginative design creates a world for kids to play, sleep, and dream all about sailing the open seas.  The color palette is a calm collection of periwinkle, aqua, navy, white, and ivory with the most beautiful pale oak wood flooring.  The denim colored wide board planks on the wall sets a dramatic backdrop for the space, and has just the right amount weathered finish to set the stage for the captains bow.

What is your favorite nautical accent in the space?
