A woven indoor-outdoor rug — scrubbable, bleachable and UV-treated -- anchors the space. "I think a nice stripe in a room is always a good thing," says Good Housekeeping magazine contributing stylist Frances Bailey, who decorated the space.

Furnishings were selected to offer a nod to the home's location while carving out a sleeping and relaxation space appropriate for all seasons.

Bed linens take inspiration from the current color blocking fashion trend and pair soft wool throws with pure cotton handstitched quilt and shams.

A DIY headboard incorporates both new and vintage paddles. New paddles are stain treated to appear weathered. Vintage paddles, locally sourced, include two oars from nearby Sanitary Fish Market.

Fashioned from reclaimed pine wood shipping pallets, a rustic nightstand provides storage space for small odds and ends.

A vintage glass buoy forms the base of a nautical-style table lamp with a burlap drum shade.

Color and pattern take center stage. Custom pillows, sourced on Etsy.com, bring in the home's vibrant coastal color palette.

Lamb's wool throws in soft watery hues are corralled in a banana bark basket.

Windows, expanded in size, provide ample sunlight. Open shelving provides plenty of storage for a collection of beach reads.

A collection of fashion magazines is offered up in a ceramic storage basket with hemp rope handles.

Two trestle legs, spray-painted a pop-art color, form the base of a work desk. A piece of wood-trimmed birch, which could be swapped out for glass or an old door, serves as a durable work surface.

Postcards are provided should a guest wish to send greetings to far-off friends.

"It's a year-round house so the selection of artwork is a nod to the place but not necessarily so seasonal," says Frances Bailey. "We needed to add some color and personality to the room."

Light sources include double French doors and a cupola that streams light into the second-floor landing.

"We wanted the room to have a lot of charm and personality and very clearly relate to the wonderful setting of the house," says Good Housekeeping magazine executive editor Janet Siroto. "And we wanted there to be things that are really memorable for the person staying."

Handcrafted stoneware fish plates offer catch-alls for jewelry, keys and knickknacks.

A braided jute mirror reflects light while continuing the room's focus on natural, nautical decor.

The guest bedroom is situated close to the staircase, making it easy for overnight guests to sneak down to the kitchen for midnight snacks or beverage runs.

Crystal knobs, a People's Choice favorite, lend traditional elegance to entry and closet doors.

A bamboo-style stand accommodates suitcases and other luggage items.

"The guest bedroom looks great. It's comfortable and it really makes you feel like you are in a special place. It really makes you feel welcomed," says Janet Siroto.

A life preserver, sourced on EBay, bears Blog Cabin show host Chris Grundy's autograph. "It's fun and vintage feeling but also adds a layer of color to the room," says Frances Bailey.

"It's so nice to be able to have a desk where you can sit down to check up on computer stuff," says Frances Bailey. "If guests just need to write or have a surface, we’ve provided for that."
