If you live in a beach town, you can bring the look and feel of your surroundings indoors with a themed bedroom. If you don't live near a beach and wish you did, a theme inspired by your favorite ocean retreat will give your bedroom a relaxed vibe.
Not only will decorating your personal space with the elements of nature and a soothing beach theme help you relax at the end of the day, but also it will give the room a customized look. So, the next time you want to book a beach vacation but it isn't in your budget, start redecorating your bedroom instead. The good news is that you don't have to spend a lot of money to transport your bedroom to a tropical island.
Here are some ideas for creating a tropical beach-inspired bedroom:
There are a few ways you can go with paint when creating a beach-themed space. If you want a more tranquil appearance, stick with watery hues of turquoise, light blue, and sea-foam green. You can either paint all of the room's walls with the chosen color or just one or two accent walls.
For instance, if the room's walls are already white or cream-colored, highlight just the wall behind your bed or around a window with the ocean color. Not only will this save you time and money, it will also be easier to repaint at the end of a lease if you rent your home.
If a lively, tropical beach look is more your style, pick a vibrant hue of banana yellow, lime green or coral orange instead. Another way to add color to a neutral-hued wall is with removable decals. You can create a beach scene using palm tree and tropical flower decals in a matter of minutes.
Another fast and easy way to redecorate your bedroom is with textiles such as bedding, rugs, and window coverings. For windows, consider rustic bamboo blinds for an authentic beach house look. If you prefer a more airy feel, go with sheer white curtains that will catch the breezes.
When it comes to your bed, choose a plush white comforter for a deluxe beach resort look, and accent it with blue and white seashell-patterned throw pillows and a matching blanket.
If you have wood floors, add comfort and warmth with a jute rug in a natural sand or ivory color.
3. Decor Pieces
One of the best ways to give your beach-themed room a personal stamp is with decor pieces such as artwork and small collections. As one idea, fill a hollow, clear glass lamp base with the seashells you collected on your last beach trip and place it on your night stand.
You can also hang your vacation photos or favorite tropical paintings in whitewash or driftwood frames. If you want to personalize a boring wood frame, glue seashells or sea glass around it.
