From the pages of Coastal Living magazine we borrowed these ideas for beautiful coastal rooms.

We love the use of dark wood contrasted against white fixtures and walls:

Combining sleek modern furniture with vintage and reclaimed elements make for a perfect mix:

Terracota floor tile, cottage table, ghost chairs and a modern pendant create an interesting mix
