6. Refresh With Fabric

Rather than starting from scratch, Allison opted to recycle some furniture from their Charleston home. The only caveat? Their previous aesthetic didn't quite jibe with their new island vibe. "We covered a lot of our antiques and existing pieces with slipcovers so they would feel more island-like," she says. In the master bedroom, Allison gave the couple's existing headboard a makeover with soothing blue fabric.

Get the look: The blinds are from Smith+Noble, the headboard fabric is Daisy Daisy David Hicks by Ashley Hicks from Groundworks,, the lamps and sconce are from Circa Lighting, the bedside table is Elizabeth Stewart Design, the quilt and pillows are from John Robshaw Textiles, and the bench and blanket are from Celadon.
