Todays Monday we’ve got Coastal decor! Focused on bedroom design!
Because what can be more relaxing than the soothing and tranquilizing vibes that this decor style give!
Some of the coastal decor types we have are: American coastal (California coastal and Florida coastal), Tropical coastal and Mediterranean coastal.
Today i’ll focus on American coastal with a mix between the more modern and muted California coastal style and the turquoisy and more heavy nautical referenced Florida style!
But, what makes a coastal decor?
Coastal decor Elements
Here are a list of the elements you can find on this kind of decor:
For a coastal decor you can find color palettes based in white, lots of white! lol
White walls, furniture and white ceilings paired with neutrals (ivory and sand for example) and accent colors that mimic the ocean life. Like blues, greens, turquoise, corals either on a bold option or a more pastel option.
Coastal decor color schemes
Here are some palettes to inspire you!
Nautical decor pieces are a must for this decor! So bring some shells, sea sponges, corals, rope decor, stripes and nautical prints to get the beach vibes wherever you live!
This style has become so popular, that is not bound to geographical location anymore!
Attention! Be careful when bringing the nautical references not to cross the line of a well planned design and start looking like a themed party! Unless, that’s what you’re going for!
As for natural materials, look to work with wood, wicker, jute, seagrass, burlap and linen!
Remember that coastal decor emulates the beachy vibes and ambiance, that’s what you should look for!
Again, since the outdoor is our reference, you’ll want to try and bring all the natural light, as possible, inside.
If your space doesn’t have much natural light, try bouncing the light by using a mirror parallel to where the light enters the space. The mirror disperses that light through the room.
Distressed or bleached wood
You can find this element in furniture or decor pieces to give that appearance as to been burned by the sun. Other option in a coastal decor is using driftwood!
Hot tip! For the wood tone, for this style, choose more maple or ashy tones.
Reflective decor pieces
When looking for the decor pieces, look for reflective type of decor, the ones that give you the feeling of the ocean reflecting the sun!
So chrome, gold and pieces like pearl decor!
Nothing sends more relaxing vibes in a bedroom than a nice scent that reminds you of summer days on the beach.
So if you like scents too, go for sandalwood, coconut or pineapplely scents!
