House Tours: East Coast Bachelor Pad
Sandy feet are no match for the flooring in the entryway. Tile is the perfect choice for high-traffic areas. Keep this spot stocked with seasonal necessities, such as towels, goggles, and sunscreen, at the ready for beach-bound fam and friends.
Aiming for a masculine color palette, a brown and white base with pops of bright tangerine was chosen. Perk up shadow boxes with sand and inexpensive beach accessories coated in glossy orange paint. Here, flippers become stylish decor.
This room used deceptively easy ways to boost the style. White floating shelves disappear into the white wall, making their contents and the large abstract artwork above them the stars of the show. Go big when it comes to wall art. Create instant artwork by stretching abstract fabric over a large canvas.
Thrifty & Nifty
Give a thrift store chandelier a hip twist by painting it a single bold hue. Clean the fixture thoroughly and read the paint label instructions to see if priming is necessary. Concrete floors make cleanup a cinch in the kitchen. It can cost as little as $3 per square foot and can be customized with color tints.
Spice It Up
Utilize industrial-style metal shelving for additional storage space in the kitchen. Aluminum trash and recycling bins were powder-coated in orange to make them a little more fun.
Where the Living's Easy
Decorative screens powder-coated orange create bold geometric wall art. Thanks to the room's architecturally interesting paneling, the walls don't require a ton of artwork. Patterned pillows and a retro-feel lampshade in the same color reinforces the theme.
Mirrored surfaces, such as the circle-theme wall art and the reflective end table, bounce sunshine around and brighten the room. A leggy end table offsets the heft of the oversize sectional.
The beach bedroom mixes gray, white, black, and tangerine for a masculine master bedroom. The black frame and white canopy create a modern yet relaxing vibe.
