You don’t have to own a beach house to have a beach-inspired bedroom. You don’t even have to live near a body of water. It simply takes a few unique elements to create a clean, airy, and calm vibe. With beach-inspired décor, keep it subtle. Too many beach-themed items can easily become too much for a room. Instead of a literal beach theme, opt for a figurative theme, giving the vibe but without having to cover the walls with seashells. Simplicity will keep the feel of the room fresh and modern while giving you a relaxing space.
The Right Colors
Use white, blues, light greens, and browns. You can incorporate darker versions of these colors, but make the majority of them light. This is what will give your bedroom an airy feel.
Woven accents are a great way to incorporate theme-worthy color and interesting texture. Use a few well-placed woven baskets, a woven chair or headboard, or even woven window shades. These accents will bring an earthy feel and help balance out the blues and greens used throughout the bedroom.
You can control the feel of your bedroom with how you present your bedding. You don’t have to dress a bed to perfected extravagance. Keep it casual. Keep it comfortable. A good rule of thumb for bedding is to make it look effortless. That’s where the relaxed vibe comes from, but make sure it’s done with purpose to avoid simply looking disheveled. Linen bedding just might do the trick.
Every piece of furniture in your bedroom doesn’t have to be wood. But just a few prominent wood or driftwood-like pieces can solidify the beach feel without being too overwhelming. Consider incorporating driftwood into a table or even a piece of wall art.
You can find beach inspiration all around you. Don’t be afraid to mix in brighter colors for extra interest or experiment with unique accents and accessories. When you hit the perfect beach-inspired pitch, you’ll know. Then all you have left to do is relax and enjoy your new space.
