8 Apr 2021

One of the best ways to create a relaxing ambaince in your bedroom is to bring in design cues taken from nature. Elements of the seaside can create a sanctuary of rest and relaxation, no matter where you live. To help you create a gorgeous bedroom here are some of our favorite interior design ideas for beach chic rooms.

Whether you prefer white sand or dramatic rocks, turquoise water or deep blue waves...natural elements helps us loosen up an become more relaxed. Below are some ideas and tips on how to bring the beach lifestyle from the outdoors inside and create a coastal sanctuary to enjoy all year round.

1. Choose a coastal base

What’s the first thing you think of when you picture the coast? It’s probably the deep blue of the sea, right? Your eyes immediately go toward the rich blue because it’s contrasted against the beautiful neutrals of the sandy shores. 

This is the secret to all beach chic interiors. What you put on the walls and the floor is incredibly important, it provides the foundation for the choices you make for the rest of your materials and furniture in the room. Look for neutral bases, like crisp whites, soft grays, sandy beige, and woody browns. 

2. Embrace natural textures

A piece of driftwood or wood wall-covering can showcase elements shaped by nature that are the perfect way to bring the outdoors into your room. You can achieve a similar effect with other materials like grasses, wicker furniture, or even bamboo. Incorporating nature into your design is proven to have a calming effect that will help you unwind instantly.

3. Reconsider your flooring

Wood floors are a great way to cool down homes in warmer climates, or provide a backdrop for stylish rugs in cooler climates, adding an elegant touch that will tie your room together. Engineered wood flooring will integrate seamlessly and be very easy to install.

4. Make your accents pop

It can be easy to overdo the neutrals. A simple splash of paint, or some new throw pillows can make a big difference. Coastal themes are typically light and breezy, but that only creates part of the picture. Some vivid reds, pinks, corals, oranges, yellows, and greens add a playful element that will surprise and delight your senses. Alternatively, if you prefer to keep things simple and elegant, consider some silver or deep blue highlights.

5. Use your walls strategically

A beach chic interior design basically begs for a gorgeous framed landscape photograph. If you’re looking for a contemporary alternative, you can hang a mirror, which will enhance the natural light in your space.

6. Breathe in some life with plants

Leafy plants will look right at home in a bright white pot. Depending on your room, you could try setting one in a corner, investing in a stand to bring the plant to eye level, or even installing some ceiling hooks. Experimenting with the height of your pot plants will break up the lines of your room, making the overall feel much more organic.

7. Let there be light

Finally, don’t forget your ceiling! You could create a relaxed vibe and keep a clean finish with soft downlights. If you want to go bold, you could catch the light with a statement chandelier, a coastal-themed ceiling fan, or even some tall lamps. Replacing heavy curtains with light blinds or plantation shutters will help you control exactly how much light filters through, to ensure you’re always able to rest and relax.
