How To Bring Beach Decor to Your Bedroom

House Beautiful – Interior Design – Tom Stringer

There is something utterly relaxing about beach style interior design. That is the reason that it stays so popular year after year. And there’s no reason to keep this style reserved for beach or cottage homes. It’s easy to bring beach-inspired décor to your bedroom year round.

There are a few simple ways to get the look:

1 – Color
Choose your color scheme. A beach-y palette is easily achieved with classic blue and white. Paint up your walls or existing pieces of furniture. Wood panelling and beadboard have a particularly fantastic coastal look when painted white. But you don’t need to be restricted to blue alone. Brown, grey, green and even orange can look beach-y too. Just be sure to temper your color choice with lots of white to keep things fresh feeling. The above two rooms use yellow for  a super fresh take on the look.

2 – Furniture
The coastal décor look calls specifically for painted wood furniture with details like turned legs. If you don’t have existing pieces that look the part, it’s easy find something new. Try a new bed frame or nightstand that already has oodles of charm in white or a color that works with your chosen scheme.

3 – Accessories
Here is the fun part! Add in some accessories that have a beach-y feel. Wicker baskets, sea shells, glass floats and hurricane lamps are all great beach-inspired décor ideas. Keep your floors bare or go with a sisal rug. Remember to keep things clean and uncluttered. There is nothing relaxing about clutter! Finish your room off with some artwork with a relaxing vibe and a few chunky white candles.
