How to Create a Tides Beach Club Room at Home

6 Sep

Last week, Pablo and I visited Maine for a belated anniversary vacation. We stayed at the beautiful Tides Beach Club in Kennebunkport and yesterday, I showed you lots of pics from the rest of the hotel. (I’m still dreaming of those lucite stools!) The hotel was gorg from top to bottom and we couldn’t have been more pleased with our cozy and charming room. Sure, the view was to-die-for…

…but the room itself was beautiful too. Following each picture are my ideas for getting a Tides-style room at home.

For coral basketweave textured wallpaper try here or if you prefer paint (I do!) try Benjamin Moore Picante.

The headboard with nailhead trim made such a big impact in the room. Try this beauty from here.

Teal looks great with coral. This similar wall art can be found here.

The bed was a perfect interpretation of “modern beach”.

I’m sure you know where to get crisp white sheets and duvet but I always get mine from here.

For a little pop of color, add a coral and white duvet cover folded at the end of the bed like this one.

A decorative shell pillow from here would work or for a more authentic embroidered look, make your own with this.

A weathered antiquey nightstand is the perfect foil to the crisp bed. I like the one from here.

These faux coral table lamps are a great deal (and sold as a pair!) from here.

We loved the glossy wainscoting on the ceiling – and this star shaped light was a surprising touch.

You can find a flushmount like that here.

The room was tiny but there was just enough space for a pretty chair in the corner.

You could get the look with a white slipcovered chair from here.

Similar decorative chair pillow from here (but please don’t karate chop it like this one!)

Heavy draperies look great hanging from thick curtain rods. Curtains made in this fabric from here would be pretty similar.

For a totally coordinated look, have your man wear a matching coral shirt. It really completes the color scheme! (Sorry, I don’t have a resource for him. He’s not for sale.)
