Beach House Bunks and More

This is the newly designed upstairs 
family room at Donna's house.
Ship shape, right? 
Notice the surfboard ceiling fan? 
Donna and her husband, John, have three teenagers.  These bunks were used for sleepovers all summer long!  It's a great place to hang out (but Donna can still keep an eye on things).
Adrian, our beloved contractor, built the bunks following Donna's design.  Nice inset for a drink or book.
The lights came from Barn Light Electric. 
The dark wall is painted Benjamin Moore Kensington Blue.

The lighter walls are painted Benjamin Moore Collingwood. The beds are twin XL, like in dorm rooms, adding an extra five inches.  The foam mattresses are only 6 inches high to allow for more head room. 
Adrian cleverly put this pass through cubby hole.



You can see more of Donna's lovely home in a past post here.  But following are a few changes she recently made. 

The laundry room was painted Benjamin Moore Wickham Gray and she and put a soft blue striped fabric behind her chicken wire cabinets.


This is a pretty vignette at the bottom of the stairs.
  The living room is the same except she restyled the mantel a bit. 
It's all great.

Speaking of great...
we had fun in Las Vegas last weekend
 with the family!  
Rod Stewart, in concert, was funny and didn't take himself too seriously--and he's still got IT!  Thank you to the readers who suggested we go to Mon Ami Gabi.  We sat outside and watched the Bellagio fountain show while dining.  
Almost like Paris.  
Ha!  Even with the cigarette smoke.

I really appreciate you being here!
Au revoir.
