Beach themes for your bedroom

Beach themed bedroom

Living by the beach means an abundance of sun and soft breezes that caress your skin—things many of us love. That’s why homes for sale in the gated community of Pebble Beach CA are so highly sought after—it’s like claiming a piece of paradise for your own.

But you don’t need to live right by the beach to bring the feelingof calm and relaxation into your home. You can create a little cocoon of sea-inspired luxury with a coastal motif right in your own private space—the bedroom.

To bring the refreshing feel of the ocean into your home, here are some ideas for inspiration:

Play on color

Paint your room with deep calming blues, jewel-like turquoise hues, a bright white or in sandy colors, and use sheets in complementary shades. Also add a sunny yellow to make for a fresh vibe and help brighten the room. Shiplap walls will likewise work, especially if you’re working on a more casual feel.


Distressed wood finishes are absolutely perfect in beach-themed bedrooms. Think driftwood: add this weathered look via your bed’s headboard and side tables. Shabby chic will certainly have a place in a beach-themed room, with mismatched furniture and no overly shiny or perfect finishes. Wrought iron is another material that will fit nicely with your timeworn beachy look.


Use coral, bright white, sunshine yellow, or blue bedding with prints of waves, seashells, aquatic plants, or colorful fish. Echo these elements in your curtains and lampshades to tie things together nicely.


Add a few tasteful accessories like starfish and sea urchins or a collection of sea shells displayed in a tall cylinder glass vase. Use lots of natural elements such as seagrass, rattan, or bamboo to punctuate your space. Sea life artwork can grace your walls. Remember, though, that creating the perfect beach-themed room means not going overboard with the beach or nautical look. You just need a few relevant elements to give your room the serene and relaxing vibe you’re aiming for.

Teen’s room

Wracking your brains for ideas to update your teenager’s room? A young adolescent boy would likely appreciate a more edgy vibe, and a surfer theme may just be the ticket. Add accents like an oar, a hurricane lantern, or a boat model and use surfer- or shark-themed elements on your walls or linens.

While there are no hard-and-fast rules to beach design, you can’t go wrong if you integrate coastal colors, timeworn furnishings, and motifs related to the sea, sea creatures, and sea activities to create a casual and peaceful vibe. With the right colors, materials and finishing touches, it’s easy to bring the refreshing feel of the ocean into your home.
