Room Redo: Costal Style

8:38 AM

My older sister just recently moved out of our two bedroom house to go party it up in LA (not really but she is having fun), and she left me with an empty dark pink room (kind of like a rasberry color). While I have nothing against pink, it can become overwhelming. This spare room has become my office/ guest room, so i want a more calming and universally accepted design. I have always been interested in interior design (I almost majored in it), so I enjoy painting, designing, and rearraning my house.
My best friend is spending her summer on the East Cost, and she has posted some beautiful pictures from her many bike rides in town. I want to use her pictures as my inspiration for my room redo. I have found some objects that I have found online that kind of embody that coastal style that I am trying to achieve. Here are some pictures of some aspects I want to incorprate into my room.
