Beach-themed bedroom with a cosy palette of seashell and pebble tones
Take traditional Scandinavian bedroom ideas and you don’t have to tweak them too much to produce a beach-style scheme. Use colours and textures of natural coastal surroundings as inspiration. Choose subtle pebble shades of pale grey, sand and stone and team with the rough warmth of weathered wood and worn linen. Build a headboard and bed platform with reclaimed planks, choose sisal flooring and a feature rug and dress the bed with wool blankets and cushions. Against simple, pale-grey walls, all those natural and woven textures will stand out beautifully creating a cosy finish. Alternatively, if you love darker hues, take a look at these nautical decorating ideas for plenty of navy and red.
Beach themed bedroom with beach hut walls
Get the bright summer beach look in your bedroom with plenty of white. Painted wood panelling will create a charming beach-house atmosphere that can be complemented with charming blue stripes for a fresh and calm look. Keep the room from looking too bland by mounting a picture rail to displaying favourite artwork and seaside postcards. Add warmth with soft furnishings in knitted or woven textures.
Beach themed bedroom with stormy grey shades
Reinvent beach style with inspiration from more dramatic shorelines and moody horizons. Give your bedroom depth by mixing stormy blues and warm greys to create a tonal scheme, then add accessories with stripes, checks and spots for a cosy and casual feel. Finish the drama with a large photographic beach print in black and white.
Beach themed bedroom with fish-motif wallpaper
Give your bedroom a relaxed sun-bleached ‘visit to the beach’ feel that is light, breezy and energising by day and cosy and cocooning at night. Layer textures from rough ‘driftwood’-inspired finishes and woven surfaces to fine fabrics. Add subtle coastal motifs with neutral fish-print wallpaper and fabric. This scheme is perfect if you love that ‘closer to nature’ vibe.
Beach themed bedroom for children
Beach and nautical themes make a great choice for children’s bedrooms because they are fresh, enjoyable and timeless. Choose fun small-scale seaside motifs and use red accents to lift the subtle palette of whites and blues. Classic white wooden furniture will last long into adolescence and your coastal scheme is ready for a more mature update.
Take a style lesson from rustic Mediterranean villages and live with their ethos of simple, raw beauty. Create a focal point with a hotel-chic four-poster bed and layer with slouchy crumpled linens in marine blues and crisp white; the classic coastal combination to capture the relaxed island vibe. The weathered door and driftwood accessories add to the laid-back, sun-bleached haven atmosphere.
Beach themed bedroom in monochrome shades
Head to the Hamptons with a smart monochrome scheme. Turn your beach-themed bedroom into glamorous New England beach house by simply replacing the typical blue accent colour with jet black. The result is a more upmarket, Ivy League style that looks super chic and preppy. Enhance the East Coast vibe with stylish stars and stripes accessories.
Beach themed bedroom with fresh linens
Turn your bedroom into a tranquil retreat by dressing a simple bed with light crisp covers and sheets in relaxing ocean blues and white. Let the sea breeze waft into your room through atmospheric whitewashed shutters and complete the beach look with interesting postcard-style prints of sea life loosely pegged to the wall in a laid-back manner.
Beach themed bedroom with window seat
One of the most charming features of a seaside home, a window seat, makes an inviting spot to sit and read or simply enjoy the coastal views. A joiner can make a window seat to fit a window recess with a lift-off or hinged lid for built-in storage. This one has been made into a beautiful feature, framed by white tongue and groove on the walls. Let the views sing with simple beige linen blinds and a padded seat to match.
