Brighter coastal beach colors was my goal with this guest room. Having grown up near the beach for a lot of my childhood, I have a love for the beach.
I wanted to bring a bit of beach (minus the sand) into my home! Turquoise, coral, white, and cream helped turn an ugly plain room into a colorful room with a bit of a cottage feel.
The majority of my home is very neutral – gray walls and white trim. I have two guest rooms one is white/black farmhouse decor and the other one is this beach room they both don’t have gray walls. I am not sure which room I like more – they are both very different. One is very colorful and bright, the other is very neutral white/black.
Decor purchases were made on Amazon and HomeGoods. I purchased the furniture – headboard and buffet off of the classifieds a couple of years ago. The headboard was originally dark wood, we painted it cream with chalk paint.
I shared links to a lot of my purchases. Scroll down to see where to purchase items in this room.

I was going to make this sign for the room in turquoise and white but haven’t done it yet. I just love this quote!!
I love these items also:
I hot glued knobby starfish onto the curtain rod. These are stationary drapes and do not open or close. Most of these pillows came from HomeGoods.
This wall is just waiting for a large beach sign that I want to paint, “Keep Calm and Pretend You’re At The Beach”. The natural wood dresser was mine as a child. I don’t want to paint it so it sits in the room looking pretty.

I love everything about this room! I want to paint my fireplace mantel with chalk paint, but I never used chalk paint before. Is it difficult to use? Its brown right now, and is just heavy looking.

Thank you, Carol! Actually I had my husband help me out and he painted the headboard! It was his first time using chalk paint and he did great! It’s pretty easy to use. The first coat you will see a lot of brush marks. But the second coat made everything look nice. Yes, our headboard that was purchased through the classifieds looked very heavy. The cream just lightened it up perfectly!
