Simple black frames with a white mat board create a modern, unexpected elegance against weathered textures. Black-and white photos or scenes of nature are ideal.
A shiny silver or chrome surface on a retro lamp (or an antiqued mirror surface on a contemporary lamp) add an updated elegance to Resortâ€™s distressed wood and metals.
Candles define the romance of resort life. Choose wide pillar candles in a variety of heights; with colors inspired by white and any variety of off-whites, from vanilla to cream to driftwood.
Reminiscent of awnings, beach towels and umbrellas, stripes are the ideal inspiration for rugs or linens; their simple lines look casual and modern, adding texture without taking over!
Born for wedding vows by the sea, white flowers add five-star elegance and luxury to an interior. Seen against green leaves, white flowers are also thoroughly modern and fresh.
Ceramics plates, vases and pots in solid colors, mat textures and simple shapes maintain the simplicity of the collection. Choose a mix of light and dark hues for a modern elegance.
What says vacation like picture books stacked on a nearby shelf or table! They reflect our interests (especially with bold titles on the spine!) and encourage us to lose ourselves in a favorite subject.
From the sea itself, glass jars, tumblers and platters keep stones, seashells and everyday items in open view. Glass maximizes daylight; semi-sheer or simple drapes on windows let more of it in!
They recall coconut and banana trees and warm-weather plantations in exotic locations. Simple green ferns or large palm fronds inside a pot or vase feel relaxed and nature-inspired.
… 9 things to like about this collection Laid-back, but sophisticated, Coastal Living Resort uniquely marries wood stains with painted finishes, weathered textures with contemporary shapes and maritime with industrial influences. But there’s more than a pretty face on this collection. Casual, comfortable and elegant elements come together, along with some modern features. Eight sea-faring, weathered finishes on solid wood and white oak veneer crate a relaxed, natural warmth… inviting a confident mix of wood finishes in a room.
8 finishes Hung or leaned, this casually elegant mirror works anywhere. Its simple design works perfectly in a contrasting color to the chest, table or vanity below.
picture mirror Don’t let its name fool you: the Cape Comber console table packs in 12 drawers for storage. At just 14” deep, it’s ideal for a foyer, hallway or smaller guest room.
What’s not to love about a TV chest with a flipopen shelf for DVD player, pull -out writing desk and extra storage drawers that keep clutter at bay?
This narrow sofa table fits behind a sofa, in a hall or bedroom. With one or two flipopen sides, it transforms to desk or table!
Woven hyacinth adds tropical ambiance to the Water Meadow bed. There’s no need to cover up, or clutter up, the woven side rails with a bed skirt.
Weathered shelves and an antiqued pewter frame are simultaneously warm and modern. The Lake Shore etagere’s open design is ideal for highlighting stylish contents.
There’s plenty of worthy dining chairs in this collection, but the Heritage Coast chair is uniquely casual and elegant, mixing shapely lines with weathered textures.
The louvered design of the Cape Comber panel bed is inspired by white-painted, shutters; the hallmark of coastal decor.
