The casual carefree coastal style is just perfect for a bedroom with the relaxed feel for a place to unwind after a stressful day to ensure a peaceful nights sleep.
The beach coastal design in a bedroom can vary massively. We want to help you create an elegant bedroom, while there are no hard and fast rules for decorating a bedroom in coastal theme, it can quickly become quite tacky! We want to help you have the classy bedroom you deserve and enjoy retreating to at the end of the day.
Tips and Ideas...
1. Decorate your bedroom using the colours of the coast, mainly varying shades of grey, blues, whites and creams.
2. Slightly distressed furniture works best for relaxing coastal styles, to resemble weathern worn wood beaten by the endless waves.
3. Include natural materials such as bamboo, rattan, seagrass for furniture and accessories. Wood and rattan create an immediate coastal feel... our Casco Bay stool or side table is a perfect example.
4. Choose pale or light pieces of furniture... white furniture is absoultely perfect in a coastal inspired bedroom
