This bedroom for a young man is in the same summer house that needed updating. I started with a warm ‘paper bag’ color for the walls, then added crisp white linens with navy striping and other navy colored accents. The theme was not to go too nautical, but instead try to create a “Tommy Bahama” California cool vibe. What makes it work? The unifying navy color for sure, but adding elements like the wooden water skis, some vintage accents and the ‘stuffed fish’ over the window really help to define this room.
