A Red Bed

This photo is from a little spot in the Bahamas called Ocean View Club (on my travel list!). How heavenly is this bedroom??

I'm loving the pale blue/tomato red color combination. To recreate, I'd take a four poster bed like this one...

... and paint it in a terrific red:

Other accents should be the same red, like the bedsides and a frame or two on the wall. I love how the wall is filled up with the two benches on either side of the bed. I would recreate that look by painting a couple of benches (like this one from World Market) the same red as the bed frame and painting the top of the bench white (as shown in the inspiration image):

Of course, that could also be done with smaller nightstands (and if the red is too much, leave them natural wood!).

The pale blue accent wall is lovely and looks to be similar to this shade:

Add little foo dog bedside lamps (less pricey alternative here):

And an ethnic throw pillow on a crisp white bedspread:

Island decor, delivered!
