The Allure of the Coastal Bedroom


A coastal bedroom isn't just a room—it's an experience, a permanent vacation at home, a retreat from the everyday. Imagine waking up to the gentle colors of nature and the calming aura of coastal living.


The coastal aesthetic is inspired by the natural beauty of the seaside, with hues of sandy beaches, foamy waves, and endless sky. It's about creating an environment where you can almost hear the soothing sound of waves lapping against the shore and feel the sand between your toes. Relaxation? Absolutely. Dreamy? You bet!

Key Elements of a Coastal Bedroom


Creating a coastal bedroom is like painting a picture of the seaside on the canvas of your room. With the right elements, you can capture the spirit of the coast right within your four walls.

Color Palette


Think soft, soothing, and inspired by nature. From sandy beiges and crisp whites to shades of cool blues and greens, your color palette is the base for your coastal oasis. Remember to keep it light, airy, and calming—the way you'd feel on a quiet beach. Keep in mind that in addition to the wall paint and material colors you choose, floor color, cabinet color, lighting fixtures, and plants all work into your bedroom color scheme. 

Here are a few coastal color palettes for bedrooms:

  • Crisp white, sage green, ash grey
  • Cream, sky blue, teal
  • Ivory, olive green, sandy beige
  • Bright white, coral, turquoise 

    Furniture Selection


    Your furniture should evoke a feeling of beachside comfort and charm. Look for pieces in light-toned woods, wicker, or rattan that add a touch of nature and keep the room feeling breezy.


    You'll want to choose furniture that balances comfort, functionality, and aesthetics. Design with the coast in mind, and incorporate elements inspired by the beach while maintaining a modern appeal. Pop over to our bedroom sets to find the perfect pieces for your coastal haven.

    Decorative Elements


    From seashells and driftwood to nautical-striped fabrics and artwork, your decorative accents add personality to your coastal bedroom. These should be subtle nods to the seaside—avoid going overboard (pun intended). Here are a few modern coastal decor items you might consider for your bedroom:

    • Coral decor pieces 
    • Rattan or wicker baskets
    • Straw mats 
    • Beachy blankets
    • Coastal books
    • Seashells
    • Rope curtain holdbacks
    • Linen curtains
    • Beach scene artwork



      Allow as much natural light in as possible. For the evenings, opt for soft, warm lighting that reflects the gentle ambiance of a coastal sunset. You might also continue the coastal theme when choosing lamps for your bedroom. 


      Enhance your coastal bedroom with blue glass lamps or coral-inspired lamps for your nightstands. You could also choose natural rattan lampshades or include a beachy iron lantern.

      How to Style Your Bedroom with a Coastal Theme


      Here's your step-by-step guide to creating a modern coastal bedroom.

      Choosing the Right Coastal Furniture


      Furniture sets the tone for your room, so choose pieces that reflect the coast's natural beauty and serenity. Opt for furniture in weathered woods for a hint of beachy ruggedness, or choose whitewashed pieces for a brighter, breezier feel.


      Upholstery should be comfortable and welcoming—linens in light, natural shades are a perfect fit. You can shop for coastal nightstands and other bedroom furniture that's beautiful, beachy, and high-quality. 

      Selecting Appropriate Decor Items


      Each decor item you choose brings something unique and adds to the beauty of your space. Choose coastal-inspired artwork, or frame a few scenic beach photos. Dress your bed in light, bright bedding, and add a few coastal-themed throw pillows for a playful touch. A rug in a neutral or subtle sea-inspired hue can tie the whole room together.

      Adding Natural Elements


      Use natural textures to help create your coastal bedroom look. Plants, driftwood, stones—natural elements help bring the outdoor, earthy environment inside. A palm or a fiddle-leaf fig can add a nice touch of green. Consider a small indoor water fountain for a soothing water element.
