Essential #9: Something Woven

The organic nature of woven accents lends a hint of rustic charm to even the most modern of spaces and keeps things casual by bringing beachy texture indoors. The master bedroom’s headboard bears rope detailing that references sailing motifs. “It’s nautical without being kitschy,” says Tim.

We love: that serene, restful vibe. When it comes to tranquil spaces, nothing tops a sun-drenched blue-and-white bedroom with an ocean view.
