Burnham Design
"When space is tight, or your room needs a hit of color, a garden stool always makes the perfect end table."
"Gingham is right on trend, and the red and white combination is so happy.  We used these to brighten up the built-in beds in the bunk room."
"These doorstops provide the perfect dose of nautical and are super practical at the same time."
"We love stripes!  Because of the weave, this has a sophisticated vibe.  We used it front and center on the sofa in the living room."
"The rubbed black finish makes this frame look like a vintage find, which we love.  The classic style works in any room."

We used four of these lighthouse prints on a statement wall in the rec room.  They look like original blueprints, and the whitewashed frames are fantastic."
Coastal style doesn't need to be all neutrals and blues. Mix it up with some pops of red in unexpected places.

"We found ourselves drawn to certain coastal materials: especially denim, linen, glass, raw wood, and rope.  This jute framed mirror fits in perfectly."

"We use hide rugs often, especially in challenging spaces.  This zebra one makes a splash in the entry of the showhouse, and is perfect under the round entry table because it looks great seen from all four sides."
"These mesh trays add a touch of country chic, and can be used in so many ways: they'll carry glasses of lemonade out to your guests, keep paper and books in line on a desk, or store guest towels in a powder room."
