Brooke Steuart - Beautiful Bedrooms and a Giveaway


The last few weeks I have taken you on a tour of the exterior spaces and living areas of designer Brooke Steuart's beautiful Delaware beach house (to see the outdoor spaces click HERE and to see the living spaces click HERE).  Now it's time to let you see where she and her family dream about their days in the surf and sun, by taking you to see her gorgeous bedrooms and bathrooms.  Once again I would like to thank Mike Busada, the talented owner of Mike B Photography, for the use of all of his wonderful photos!

Like the rest of Brooke's vacation home, the bedrooms are beautifully appointed with a bit of whimsy thrown in for good measure.  As with everything Brooke touches, there is always an element of the unexpected found in her designs and her beach house bedrooms are no exception!


An animal print rug, vintage poster, and contemporary console table may not scream "beach" house to the average person, but Brooke has a knack for combining the things she loves to create warm and welcoming spaces.  Black and white sailing prints hang in the hallway leading to the bedrooms, reminding visitors of the home's location, while tying in perfectly with the color scheme of the rug.



A romantic at heart, Brooke defies traditional beach house kitsch in this gorgeous guest room.  The Victorian hand painted bed, pale blue walls, crystal bedside lamps, and silk skirted side table create a fairytale like atmosphere for daughters and guests alike.



Colorful bedding. lots of pillows, and a fluffy white duvet add luxury to the room without being too fussy.


Hand painted furnishings and fresh flowers add a feminine touch.  And is there any better way to welcome your guests than with fresh flowers?!



If you thought Brooke was going to abandon her love of color in the bedrooms of her beach house, think again!  When asked how she feels about using strong colors Brooke says, "Don't be afraid to use beautiful colors!"  A belief that clearly shows in this gorgeous melon colored bedroom!  



Colorful accent pillows and artwork play nicely off of the rich deep wood tones of the furniture and lends a sophisticated tropical feel to the room!



The guest bath is another room where Brooke let her creative color juices flow.  The lime green walls, whimsical art glass light fixtures, and sleek glass enclosed shower get guests ready for a day of fun in the sun!



And because no home by the ocean would be complete without at least one beach inspired room, Brooke designed this colorful room with that in mind. 



Casual white painted furniture, beachy accents, and crisp colorful striped bedding create the perfect seaside abode.



Beautiful glass lamps provide extra reading light as well as a fun punch of color!



If bold colors aren't your thing, how about a touch of the exotic?!  Carved furniture, Asian accents, and touches of gold and red give this guest room a Balinese feel.



Guests will wonder if they've been transported to a far away land when they stay in this tranquil room!



"Make guests feel welcome by providing them with plush towels, fresh flowers, something to drink, and books or magazines in their room," suggests Brooke.



I've saved the best for last with the piece de resistance, the master bedroom suite! 



Brooke's master bedroom is a sophisticated blend of masculine and feminine elements with luscious chocolate brown walls, mirrored nightstands, and luxurious bedding.  Blue gray accents and nautical touches speak to the home's waterside location.



A fireplace adds to the romance of the space and provides warmth for those chilly early Spring and Fall evenings along the Delaware coast.



High end treatments continue in to the master bathroom, where a soothing color palette envelops you.  Natural woven baskets provide extra storage under the sink area and add texture and interest.



Beautiful glass mosaic tile in shades of turquoise and seafoam green, sparkling fixtures, and natural materials create a spa like retreat in the oversized shower and provide the Steuarts with the perfect spot to begin and end each day!

  9. Oh, without a doubt I love the victorian guest room the best. You don't see that much of that style these days. Generally, things are a bit more streamlined. It was nice to see it done and done WELL. Just enough to feel romantic. Not so much that you would feel suffocated.

    I love this tour. Love it.

  65. Hi again Kat,

    I would love to spend the night in the Master
    bedroom. The choice of colors is warm and comforting and the choice of furnishings from the fabric of the pillows to the lamps to the roman shades make it intimate and romantic.

    Would love a copy of "Waterside Cottages"
    It will serve me well when I move to Savannah
    someday!!

    Love and Hugs,

    Susan
