The Look for Less: Master Bedroom

Bedroom, Coastal Interiors, Edesign, Home Blog Posts, Splurge vs. SaveAnneke McConnell

Hey guys! Many of us know what it’s like to fall completely in love with something that’s outside of our budget. Today’s mood board edesigns of a master bedroom show how you can get the look for less OR at least mix and match whichever items you like! There is over $5000 difference between these two master bedroom designs!

Also a quick reminder that today is the last day of Serena & Lily’s 20% off sale! I chose a handful of items from Serena & Lily for our Master Bedroom Makeover this past Spring if you want to see some of their pieces styled in our home. Their pillows, lighting, and rugs are some of my favorites to design with!

SPLURGE


SAVE

I have to admit there were some pieces in the Splurge design that gave me quite the challenge to find something similar. I hope you find this helpful! I particularly love that light tan and cream plaid blanket for fall! If you love being surrounded by neutrals, this is a great affordable option!

Beach House Patio

Coastal Interiors, Edesign, Home Blog Posts, Our Beach House, Our Home, SummerAnneke McConnell

We have one more week until our kids go back to school, and while summer vacation is winding down, I realized I've shared our patio quite a bit on Instagram, but not on the blog. Better late than never!

I didn't get around to completing the entire plan I blogged about here, BUT it has been an amazing Summer here in the Pacific Northwest none the less and I have no complaints (well....other than we really need a better kayak storage solution!). The kids are healthy and happy and we've had a lot of great fun as a family. 

We recently had a progressive dinner on our street with all of our neighbors (walking beach side from patio to patio), which made for the perfect opportunity to photograph our progress on the space.  Here's what we ended up with for now!

The good news for you is that we've had a season to be using all of these items (some more than a few years), so I have some pros and cons we've discovered with daily use. :-)

It's a little tough to capture this space since we are so close to our neighbor's (that we love) and I try to respect their privacy!

SHOP THIS POST

Here are a few things worth noting after using everything for awhile:

1. The adirondack chairs actually have self storing ottomans which we LOVE!! They recline to three different settings as well.  I shared this a lot in my IG stories, but forgot to capture it in these photos! We have loved having a set of these on our back deck. They are available in 4 colors, but classic bright white was a winner for us.

2. We've really enjoyed having an expandable table wood dining set for larger gatherings with friends and family. We previously had an older metal and glass table that was a stand in until we could get something larger.  Most of the time we have three of the chairs on each side and the ends have an outdoor wicker chair (ours are sold out, but for similar ones look HERE and HERE).

3. The HUGE umbrella is actually a rectangle.  I love that it is large and covers the entire set, along with the solar LED lights built in, but unfortunately we deal with enough wind that it will spin and get out of alignment. With a round umbrella that's no big deal, but a rectangle is something else.  If it's windy enough to spin the umbrella, it's not likely we are eating outside anyhow, so it's been okay.

4. The blue outdoor trellis rug underneath the dining table has unfortunately not been the best fit for our location.  It has faded pretty quickly with the sun beating on it everyday and whenever it gets wet from watering our plants or kids running around after swimming, it takes forever to dry and is just squishy under our feet. :-(  It's such a bummer because it is a really beautiful, soft rug and I'm certain it would work in other settings beautifully, like a covered dining patio or seating area, but it didn't work for us. From other experience, we will only buy rugs for our patio that are like THIS RUG because we know they dry fast and don't fade as easily.

5. The fire columns are a BIG YES!! They are so easy to use and move around. Plus, they put out just the right amount of heat and ambience with the adjustable flame.  Ours were from Target, but are sold out. HERE is a similar one.

6. Last to make mention of is our patio sectional. We've had it a few summers now, and other than someone stealing one of our ottomans, it has been a great fit and held up to the elements. This is actually the first summer we had cushion storage, so I think that says a lot for holding up well to kids and bird fly-bys, snacking, sand, seaweed, and more.  We love that it is modular so it has seen a few arrangements over time. It used to be where our dining set is now! :-)

 

I hope our little beach house patio gives you some ideas and inspiration for your own space and these reviews help answer any questions you may have!

Cheers the the last few weeks of Summer!

Hey friends! It's been a busy few weeks of our kids wrapping up their school year, us working on patio updates for Summer (here's our plan), and my husband and I just celebrating our 16th year anniversary! After going through some rough patches, this year's anniversary just seemed a bit more special and it was nice to just send the kids off to Grandma's and stay at the beach house.

He surprised me with one of my fave flowers - stargazer lilies!

Beach House Art Work and Rope Basket - Coastal Interiors

Hanging Rope Basket by Sewcialite (this is where we currently corral our keys) / Sailboat Artwork by Melissa Lyons Art / Large Clear Glass Vase (about 6" x 6" x 12") alternative set of 4 / Reclaimed Wood Entryway Console Table from Homegoods (alternative)


I have to admit I've been feeling pulled in a million directions lately. I've been brainstorming content for the blog and Instagram and it's going to look a little different for Summer since I'm home with our 3 kiddos until school starts back up again in September.  I'm pretty protective of our time together and boundaries, but I also LOVE to design and help you guys get that Coastal look!

With that said, I recently asked you guys on Instagram if you preferred more of a product round up style of blog posts (such as Coastal Dining Chairs or lighting or rugs, etc.) OR if you preferred more edesigns.  You guys gave me a good laugh because the results were basically split down the middle. Of course. ;-)

I'll be kicking off a series for the Summer (more to come) that will include a mix of edesigns, product round ups, and personal projects from our beach house like our Master Bedroom reveal, our Patio and some furniture makeovers. I can't wait to share all of these and also more details about a fun project in the works that will help you guys in your own decorating endeavors!

Onto today's edesign and all the epic sales for the 4th of July Holiday - they're GOOD!

I came across this storage bench with cute wicker basket and drawers as I've been debating what to put in our own entryway.  As for the It's possible to get multiples of these and put them side by side and get the built in look without them actually being built in. Plus they come in multiple colors and are a great option for refinishing if you wanted to!

The diamond rug below is also currently 55% off with hundreds of other rugs so if you're on the lookout for a good rug at a good price, check out all the options HERE!

Serena & Lily is also having a 20% off sitewide sale and their rugs are some of my favorites for getting that Coastal Chic look!

Cozy Sitting Area with Sleeper Chair

Coastal Interiors, Edesign, Home Blog Posts, Home DecorAnneke McConnell

Whether you have room for guests in a dedicated room or not, it's nice to have some alternative sleeping options for visitors. One of the easiest ways to do this is with a sleeper sofa or chair.  There's nothing extra to store away or a space that is not being used all that much (depending on how often you have guests!). 

This edesign showcases a simple and inviting chair to relax in, but it can also be opened into a twin mattress bed when needed. Win-win!

Before diving into design details, a couple sales worth noting:

I hope you enjoy this edesign and find it inspiring for your own home!  I'm especially loving those pillows!!!
