has tired of his all white look and wants something new with a little color but still beachy
with a tropical feel.
Right now we are working on the bedroom and an inside balcony area.
I would like your opinion, please.
Remember, he wants a very beachy/tropical feel to his place. The question is...do you
think these colors and the look are too feminine for a man’s beachfront home?
I like the symmetry of this room. I think the cane and rattan headboard can be very
masculine. Do you think making the lampshades and the roll pillows a darker blue
would make it more masculine? Or, do you think it’s fine for a man just the way it is?
The next picture is of an indoor balcony/loft area. I like the upholstered wedges that can
be pushed together for an ottoman. Do you think the colors are too feminine...remember,
it is at the beach? I was thinking maybe not using the middle round table and pushing the
ottoman together and just having a narrow side table would look good. That way the
wedges can still be separated for extra seating if necessary.
This next picture happens to be the look I thought would really work. I love the
grasscloth walls and the driftwood floor lamp would be perfect for the beach. The
problem with this room is that he doesn’t like green(but that can easily be changed to
another color) and he doesn’t like grasscloth or any covering on the wall. Oh well.
What’s your opinion, are the rooms too feminine or fine for any house on the beach?
I would love to know.
