Designer Liz Carroll kicked off the creation of this bright and happy space when she laid eyes on a bolt of look-at-me, indoor/outdoor Trina Turk fabric. She knew it would be perfect for the custom headboard, and “it informed everything else in the room."
Arrowroot wallpaper evokes the dunes outside, while ocean-going John Robshaw bedding and sunny day-inspired artwork complete this Rehoboth Beach guest room’s seaside allure.
Pink, yellow, and navy makes for a fun spin on the primary color palette in this vividly inviting guest room. White furnishings and trim help ground the cacophony of color.
In a small room, a dual bunk bed makes space for the whole family. The queen size bed on the bottom and twin bed on top are a perfect pair for guests with young children.
Bold wallpaper in a beachy pattern reminds guests of tropical locales and provides a sense of escape for a true getaway.
A large, skinny room is perfect for a row of twin beds at a beach house where lots of little ones come to visit. This one in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, also features an upstairs loft with even more sleeping space.
A bold gray-and-yellow combo makes a statement in this guest room. The bold contrast is softened with soft fabrics and textures like the velvet-covered headboard.
Try a vibrant hue, such as turquoise mixed with white, to create a playful space. Increase the beachy feel with accents such as these palm-shaped bed posters.
A pale combination of soft yellows and grays gives a relaxed vibe here. A pair of twin beds covered in the same fabric as the curtains and armchair unify the room.
Create a classic coastal haven with a nautical-themed bedroom that makes guests feel at home by the sea. A red, white, and blue color scheme and ocean-inspired accents, such as this sailboat portrait, hint at the theme without going overboard.
Layering patterned bedding on a hand-carved spindle bed pairs perfectly with modern accessories for a look that’s traditional, yet not old-fashioned.
Guests will appreciate having their own space to unwind at the end of the day, such as in this attached guest cottage decorated in soothing tones.
A small nook tucked into the wall is an imaginative sleeping spot guests will remember for years.
A guest room is a fun place to experiment with out-there accents like patterned walls. Here, gingham on the curtains and walls pleases the eye in a sea-green palette.
For houses tight on space but not on property, yurts (heavy-duty circular tents) can provide extra sleeping quarters for guests. Furnish with high-quality indoor furniture to make the small room feel like an extension of the house.
Big, open windows in a guest room with a beautiful water view establish a sense of place. Lots of light paired with a white color palette and pops of orange feels bright and cheery.
A daybed outfitted in fun fabrics can function as a sitting area during the day and a guest bed at night.
Wood-paneled walls paired with an antique bed frame create a cozy sleeping quarters.
