In the Bunk Room

Textured Draperies
A thick fabric in the same shade as the trim and ceiling draws the eye toward the stunning view.

Beachy Brightness
In a room with lots of fun pattern, a pop of solid color anchors the space.

Playful Upholstery
One small-scale print, like these dancing ladies in sea blues, keeps the mood light and the look cohesive.

Common Thread
The rug picks up on other blues so that the patterns can coordinate, not clash.
