Shipshape Bunk Room

With the difficult construction behind them, Strickler and Pattison next gave plenty of thought to what they wanted from their interiors. First and foremost, the house would have to be great for entertaining and be able to accommodate a nearly nonstop rotation of weekend guests, both adults and children. So they outfitted a room with six custom bunk beds with nautical accents, like rope pulls on the built-in drawers and sea-worthy sconces.

Get the look: The bunks are by Harborside Woodworking; the bedding is from Lands' End; the sconces are from Lighting Universe; the flooring is by Hinckley Home Center.
