Cozy Sitting Area with Sleeper Chair

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

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!!!

Our PNW Beach House Patio Makeover Plan

Coastal Interiors, Edesign, Home Blog Posts, Home Decor, Our Home, Our Beach HouseAnneke McConnell

Our beach house is relatively tiny and living in the Pacific Northwest Seattle area means that when it's warm and sunny outside, you want to make the most of it!  Updating our patio space for the Summer has been "on deck" for awhile now, and I'm so excited to share more of the transformation on Instagram as this plan comes to life! Here are a few things to keep in mind:

 

1. The patio is an extension of our home, but also where we really spend A LOT of our time during the Summer months June-September. The weather is typically between 70s and 80s and perfect for playing outside, beach activities, walks, kayaking, boating, outside dining, etc.

 

2. We LOVE to have people over to hang out, eat good food, let the kids play, etc.  Updating our patio dining area has been HUGE on my wishlist for the past couple of years, so I'm pretty excited about this new outdoor dining set to welcome family and friends alike. With the added space, we can host larger groups than other times of the year when it's gray and rainy outside.

 

3. We're a "down to earth" kind of family and things can get messy, so whatever we planned for the patio had to accommodate fishing activities (the fire pit area is also where we'll need a spot for bait boxes, coolers, etc. as we come and go during launching).  Our kiddos and their friends are also often running across the deck from one house to the next or from the beach side of the house to the street/back lot side. Sand is flying, rock treasures abound, etc. and so I've been brainstorming design ideas to make this patio a happy balance between a "beautiful and calm oasis" to "family-friendly fun zone". :-)

 

Some of the items in today's design we already own (like the outdoor sectional) and others are on order slowly arriving one by one.  This will definitely be completed in a few phases.  

Let's dive into the design plan for the three different sections of the patio: the lounge area, the dining area, and the fire pit area (also right off the boat ramp and multipurpose utility area).

Foldable adirondack chairs were a MUST for this space since we need to be able to move everything out of the way for fishing gear at different times. 

 

There can definitely be more components when it comes to an outdoor space since they may be multiple "zones" you're working with.  This kind of feels like three rooms in one. :-)  We're excited to share the process and how it all comes together, and hopefully it inspires you and gives you ideas for your own patio or porch space!

I'll share updates as we move along (hopefully writing more too)! It's crazy town here at the end of the school year!! xoxo

Affordable Guest Bedroom Retreat

Bedroom, Coastal Interiors, EdesignAnneke McConnell

Hello friends! While it can be fun to dream and splurge on gorgeous interior decor, I love a good challenge of putting together a beautiful room for less. Whether it's for a personal budget, guest room, or vacation rental, we need to pinch some pennies to make it happen.  

When we first put our beach house on VRBO, we had a $20,000 budget for all of the renovation, furnishings, and to outfit the entire home (mattresses, utensils, cooking items, towels, etc.) so I understand it can take some creativity, thrifting, and DIY at times!  ;-)

Today's edesign is a more affordable option with a guest retreat in mind. Not all elements are necessary, but when pulled all together, this bedroom would make a guest feel right at home and comfortable.

I'd love to know in the comments what YOUR favorite items is!  I think for me it has to be that comfy accent chair and boat artwork!
