The Bunk Room addresses one of the most important features of any beach house: having plenty of space to comfortably host family and friends. Celebrating the home’s proximity to the water, the room evokes a stylish, nautical theme, complete with bunk beds reminiscent of berths on a boat. Shiplap walls, mahogany ceilings, and polished nickel fixtures add classic architectural elements, while the bright, glossy, blue-painted floor keeps the space bright and fun. Built-in shelves add charm, create privacy between bunks, and offer guests a place to store personal items. A nautical color palette coupled with whimsical, sea-themed accessories, from painted oars to sailboat motif linens and ship kites, create a light and cheerful ambiance.
