You may think that a canopy bed requires a massive room with sky-high ceilings. Au contraire: as long as there is at least three inches from the top of the canopy bed to ceiling, you can sleep like royalty. The vertical posts of a canopy bed actually give the illusion of height in a room, even if your ceilings aren't soarin'.

Leather may seem more fitting for a library, den, or office, but it's a crucial component for a coastal-cool bedroom. The weathered texture balances out the softer materials of a bedroom, like Egyptian cotton sheets and cozy rugs. Here, a Pierre Paulin chair makes a statement in the corner, and a leather pommel horse serves as both sculpture and seating in front of the fireplace.

If you want to feel like the beach is just a stone's throw away, incorporating blue accents is a must. A blue pillow, throw, and headboard keep this bedroom beachy, and also contrast the warmer, neutral colors in the space. Represent all colors of the ocean, from deep sea indigo to tide pool blue, for a look that is as mesmerizing as watching the waves.
