Sleeping LoftBeach Style Staircase, Atlanta

A nautical collage adorns the wall as you emerge into the light and airy loft space. Family photos and heirlooms were combined with traditional nautical elements to create a collage with emotional connection. Behind the white flowing curtains are built in beds each adorned with a nautical reading light and built-in hideaway niches. The space is light and airy with painted gray floors, all white walls, old rustic beams and headers, wood paneling, tongue and groove ceilings, dormers, vintage rattan furniture, mid-century painted pieces, and a cool hangout spot for the kids.

Wall Color: Super White - Benjamin Moore
Floor: Painted 2.5" porch-grade, tongue-in-groove wood.
Floor Color: Sterling 1591 - Benjamin Moore
Yellow Vanity: Vintage vanity desk with vintage crystal knobs
Mirror: Target
Collection of gathered art and "finds" on the walls: Vintage, Target, Home Goods (some embellished with natural sisal rope)

    8. No need to go kitschy, by the way. A single lifeguard-themed knickknack or wall hanging gets the message across and feels especially appropriate in a vacation house or as a reminder of halcyon summer afternoons when autumn draws near.

    4. NauticalA popular theme with good reason, nautical style manages to be both classic and fresh — as long as it is approached without too heavy a hand. Keep the nautical look current by steering clear of too many dark woods and an excess of decorative items.You can't go wrong with a crisp, clean color palette of white and blue with bright red accents. Curtains with rope ties inspired by sailcloth, floors painted with a wash of deck paint and a few well-chosen pieces of wall art would complete the look.See more about modern nautical style

    Layer the whites. Keep layering on the whites in your beach cottage, using different shades for depth. Tiny sample cans of paint are perfect for experimenting to find just the right ones. After the paint is up, work in white window treatments and furniture for yet another layer. Then have some fun with the accents.

    Notice the rope and canvas curtains. These, along with a few vintage beach-theme trinkets and mirrors shaped like portholes, achieve perfect modern nautical balance.

    Thwart the difficult mission of finding the perfect-size piece to fill a narrow stairwell by grouping together an eclectic array of framed art and mirrors. The placement around this doorway is balanced but not perfectly symmetrical, lending a casual feel.

    The loft area upstairs is completely open, which not only creates a communal space but also saved money on framing. "This home isn't about walls and constraints; it's about being communal and together as a family," says Joel. Instead of walls, curtains from Pottery Barn were hung from iron curtain rods with rope. The flooring material in the loft is painted porch-grade hardwood, which also cut down on cost.

    This is sort of what I picture for the upstairs landing with all the rooms along the exterior.

    I like the simple ceiling - maybe entrance and follow through in upstairs and down hallway.
