There is something utterly relaxing about beach style interior design. That is the reason that it stays so popular year after year. And thereâ€™s no reason to keep this style reserved for beach or cottage homes. Itâ€™s easy to bring beach-inspired dÃ©cor to your bedroom year round.
There are a few simple ways to get the look:
1 â€“ 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 donâ€™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 forÂ a super fresh take on the look.
2 â€“ Furniture
The coastal dÃ©cor look calls specifically for painted wood furniture with details like turned legs. If you donâ€™t have existing pieces that look the part, itâ€™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 â€“ 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 dÃ©cor 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.
And voila! Sit back and enjoy your new beach-inspired bedroom retreat.
