Happy Friday! Today I am partnering with Bellacor for an incredible giveaway. We are offering one of our followers the chance to win a Gabby Home Clay Chandelier. Gabby is one of my favorite brands! They create beautiful, transitional designs that are elegant, modern and eclectic. The Clay Chandelier has a turned wood center column, warm, gold finished arms and clay putty candlesticks. This light would be amazing in so many different spaces. I used it in the entry of our Burnt Pine Cove home and it absolutely makes this space. To enter the giveaway see the rules below. Good Luck!!!
I have a thing for twin beds. I go through periods where I seriously can't stop thinking about them. I pin them constantly on Pinterest. Their symmetry allows for fun patterns and cute rugs. Twin headboards can be more playful and you can pick a more ornate side table since there's only one. Do you want one lamp or two? Maybe a bench at the end of the bed? Patterned or simple bedding? Remember it's times two. So many options, my mind just jumps from one fun thing to the next. And yet, somehow, we have never, ever had twin beds. I bought these two in the hopes of designing a super cute little girls room but in the end, alas, no one wanted to sleep alone, so we had to push them together and make a king bed instead (sigh...)
Finally (!!!) at long last, my dreams have come true and we officially have a twin beds, in all their glory, for one of our guest rooms. After all, sometimes you have guests that don't necessarily want to share the same bed. I think, if you have a beach house, atleast one of your rooms should either have a bunk bed or twin beds, or if you're really awesome, maybe you'll have both!
I grew up with white wicker headboards in a room I shared with my sister, but I don't think they were nearly as pretty as these. These Seahorse headboards from Serena & Lily are fun and feminine and feel at home in a beach house.
And take a look at the Alexis side table from Gabby. I knew the moment I saw it, that when paired with the blue bedding it would lend a chinoiserie effect to the whole space. The middle section steps out a touch giving it great lines while the detailing on the drawers adds such beautiful texture and pattern. The brushed gold hardware and detailing on the drawers also adds to it's vintage appeal.
I've been spending a lot of time lately on Etsy sourcing vintage rugs and I have found some amazingly beautiful ones that are all one of a kind. This one has a soft yellow background with little hot pink details that bring a fun touch to the whole room. Another fun touch is the velvet tufted benches at the end of the bed, also from Gabby. They're actually two pieces of a round ottoman but I couldn't resist using them separately. Gabby seriously has some of the most unique accent pieces for a room!
Guest rooms in a beach house are a big deal. Everyone loves a beach vacation, so if you're lucky enough to live by the coast, you can bet you'll have plenty of visitors. I finished furnishing two of ours just in time for Labor Day. Today I'm starting with a look at the Queen Guest Room.
I found this four post black bed on clearance years ago before we even had a guest room, but I knew it would be perfect for us some day. It's traditional with an interesting contour and lines.
I love these Sarah side tables from Gabby. They have just the right amount of softness with the curved front and dotted detail along the top edge. The bronze hardware is the perfect contrast- graceful and elegant.
Texture in a space is so important. I'm always thinking about opposites that push and pull- smooth and hard, polished and soft, dark and light, simple and patterned. Finding the balance between these things is what really makes a space sing.
Old Seagrove Homes was created out of a chance meeting one summer night on a roof deck overlooking the beach in 2007. While Alex was already running a construction company, Cynthia had studied fine arts and design. Three children and many projects later, the couple knew that what had started out as a construction company, was quickly growing into something much more. Today, Alex and Cynthia Rice work together as a design team, building inspiring homes from conception to construction and custom finishes. Thanks for following along with us!
