What Houzz contributors are saying:
Launder curtains and slipcovers. Toss machine-washable items in the washer and take the rest to the dry cleaner, or hand wash and air dry them. If you don't want to iron curtains, try hanging them up while they're still slightly damp — their own weight should help the wrinkles fall out within a day or two.
Try a layered look. Bamboo blinds provide textural interest and privacy and block light, while simple white cotton curtains add softness. When the blinds are pulled up, the sheer curtains can be used to softly filter the light and still provide a bit of privacy.
All the bedrooms are paneled with batten strips in a classic coastal style. Joel applied pine strips directly to the sheetrock as an inexpensive way to get the look the sisters wanted. Simple dressers were accented with sea-green hardware, a simple and affordable touch that feels high end.Bedding: vintage and West Elm; side table and bed frame: vintage
Snappy HardwareThis is a lovely bedroom for many reasons, but I especially love the unique hardware on the side tables. Hinges, pulls and knobs are like jewelry for furniture. Use them sparingly for a subtle but lasting impact.
Style Secret: The Power of Paint Cottage decorating mavens have never met a wrought-iron bed or battered side table that they couldn’t liven up with a paintbrush. Whether you want to rescue a ratty finish, brighten dark wood, or unify pieces that carry the mismatched look a little too far, paint is your friend. It’s cheap, it’s quick and it’s fuss free. Hot tip: Worried that a just-painted piece will look glaringly new? It’s easy to get a worn look with a little strategic sanding or filing. Period (or period-look) drawer and cabinet pulls and other hardware also help.
