Kait and her husband brought some local flavor to their son's serene, striped room: When we began planning to transition our home office/guest room to a nursery, there was no question that our son's room would reflect our love for all things coastal. Planning this room on a tight budget and in a rental allowed us to really showcase our creative, thrifty approach to home projects.

Since our landlord gave us permission to paint if we agreed to repaint the room it's original color before moving, we decided to do one wall instead of the whole room. We are not fans of painting OR moving and knew we would not want to take on the challenge of repainting the whole room during a move! We chose a relaxing blue and khaki color scheme and were able to find the perfect bedding (the only thing we purchased new for the room) to complete our vision. Because this is a 2 bedroom townhouse we needed to still have a bed available for guests in the room so we added a twin bed, Kait's bed from childhood. The antique buffet was in less than ideal condition when purchased but we refinished and repurposed it to use as a changing table. My husband painted the sailboat on the wall (with the assistance of an overhead projector) to bring a little color to one of the remaining white walls. With it's clean lines and simple yet practical decor, this room has quickly become our favorite place in the house. We will be moving this summer and are sad to have to leave it behind.

Thanks Kait and Weston!
