monday makeover: a blue and white nantucket bedroom


Or, I should say, monday makeunder. I haven't done one of these in a while, and since my last monday makeover post, I have given myself my own mood board makeover of sorts, so this post features some serious saves (the priciest item in here is $339!).

Coastal Living's covers have been very festive lately, but not exactly recreatable as rooms. But I was inspired over the weekend when the magazine's "room of the day" featured a beautiful blue and white bedroom in designer Elizabeth Georgantas' restored Nantucket summer home.

The fabric in this room is the key for recreating the look--the creamy upholstery against the dark wood is just as important as the patterns of the accent fabrics. The curtains in the Georgantas' bedroom are Scalamandre's "Ingrid", while the stool and accent pillows are upholstered in Schumacher's "Cable Stripe Matelasse."
