A bedroom needs to have a comfortable environment because this is the place you wind down in at the end of the day. So, what brings comfort to your bedroom? You need to consider several factors like the colour of the walls, the bed linen and of course the décor. These elements are as important as what side of the house your window opens towards.
Here are 10 bedroom ideas inspired by coastal themes:
1.Teal and Sand
There is a lot you can do to give your bedroom a beach look. In this image, you can see how the teal matches the aura of water and the pale blue of the walls complement it. The beach look is efficiently completed by the seashell décor behind the bed. The white bed frame adds to the lighter and airy vision of a beach.

2.Pale Blue and White
This is a very simple combination of pale blue with the neutral effect of white. The aura of sand has been added by using a sandy and clay coloured headboard. The colour combination is simple but the bedroom itself has been made look full by a large bed sporting puffy white and pale blue cushions. At the same time, the sliding doors don’t let the room feel over crowded.

3.Grey Sea Foam
In this picture, the large headboard covers most of the wall behind the bed. Simple coastal colours have been used to produce the comfort in the room. White, pale blue and sand grey give the bedroom a look very similar to a coastal environment. The entire combination reminds one of the serene grey foam washing up to the shore with each wave.

If you are a minimalist, this is perfect. Blue and white have been mixed to represent the water and sand at the beach. The addition of wood and keeping the wall bare speaks of a minimalist personality.

Some people find their comfort in proper organisation. A darker blue like those used on traditional jeans has been complemented by white and black. It not only looks simple and neat but is quite elegant. Neutrals always help bring out the main colour which is the blue of the water in this case. The bed frame is of wood and is of the platform variety. The wide window gives a broad view of the outside.

7.An Attic Beach
This is a perfect bedroom to plan for your attic purposes. Instead of highlighting the navy blue with white, use grey. The room looks less simple but gives convenience. The bed frame in itself is large but the headboard is not that huge. This gives you plenty of space to hang something behind the bed. Navy blue lamps give convenience for reading at night. The blinds don’t look as elegant as curtains but a good choice to make the bedroom more convenient. The overall wood use adds warmth to the entire view.

8.Bare Window Nautical
Once again, the nautical navy blue stripes with white combination bring the traditional coastal look. A navy blue carpet is used as well against a white wooden floor. Décor has been kept simple and the windows are floor length. The lack of curtains brings more space to the room and makes it look airy as well. A simple armchair in the corner looks quite convenient.
Suggested: Navy and White Striped Shams
If you like more intricate designs, then you can always opt for the thin stripes. They give a look similar to that of pinstripes. To get a coastal look for your bedroom, you might combine navy blue stripes with white or perhaps off white to bring the aura of sand into the room. Thin stripes look quite intricate as mentioned earlier. Therefore, you can opt for a more intricate décor to surround it if you feel like filling up space. On the other hand, you can keep the elegance of the stripes alive by having a minimal décor. If you like bright, choose white wall paint and if you want to mellow it down, choose pale white.
