Tidewater Landing - Guest Suites

The second-floor bedroom suites offer different designs but equally comfortable accommodations for visiting friends and family. In one, a bold color scheme catches the eye. "This room doesn't have as commanding a view as the waterfront bedrooms," says Susan. "So this is the space where you want contrast and pattern." A green-and-blue coastal landscape brings seaside color into the space but echoes the wall color with hints of coral. Geometric black-and-white fabric covers the queen-size bed. On each side, three-drawer, burnished leather chests trimmed in antique brass nailheads support contemporary glass bubble lamps with rust-red shades. "The black and white against the coral makes the room a little more lively," Susan says.

Across the hall, muted botanical prints complement a pencil-post, four-poster, king-size bed. At its end, a demure chair with a rolling back and arms pairs with an ottoman and floor lamp to create cozy seating near French doors and a covered porch. An adjoining bath features an oak vanity with bamboo detailing. "This suite has a ladylike, English feel," Debbie says. "The furniture looks antique, and the room comes across as something from a B&B." The porch's vantage point tempts even sleepyheads to wake for sunrise viewings.
