Lakeside Guesthouse

Natural materials offer an island vibe.

Textured rattan mats stapled to the walls are an affordable substitute for grasscloth wallpaper, and mosquito netting over the beds is both practical and charming. These fun decor tricks are also budget savvy: the mosquito nets were $10 each at Ikea, and the rattan mats were $10 each in Chinatown.
