2012 Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House – Bunk Rooms

The house had two bunk rooms, one on each level.  The upstairs Bunk Room was initially a walk-in-closet, but it was so large we felt it was better suited for a bunk room.  Due to the ceiling slope we opted for a daybed design and I think it worked out well.  We even had enough room to spare a walk-in-closet at the back of the room.


The design starting point for the room was the “Serendipity” Sister Parish wallpaper, we then painted the paneling and bed platforms to match the green in the paper, in Pratt & Lambert “Barberry”.

The linens with the custom scallop trim and the coverlets are both by Traditions.  The bolsters are trimmed in Schumacher’s Colette Coupe trim. The gold striped accent pillows are in Windsor Smith’s “Sparkle” stripe for Kravet. The Sunbrella throws added the perfect punch of coral for the foot of each bed.


The first floor bunk room is off the back hall.  We decided to paint the entire room in a dark charcoal gray (Pratt & Lambert’s “Dependable”) to add contrast against the otherwise mostly white common areas.  The straw baskets hold Sunbrella throws and Tilly Towels (unfortunately not pictured, added those after I took these pictures).

Each bunk has it’s own curtain, black-out lined, so parents have a better chance of kids sleeping in.

The accent bolsters on the beds are in Studio Bon’s “Fuzz”.  Linens are from Traditions.

Each bunk also has an ipad docking station… which should keep children (or adults) entertained for hours.  All of the audio video work in the house was done by our friends at Innovative Sight & Sound.
