The Characteristics of Coastal Design In Bedroom

The Characteristics of Coastal Design In Bedroom

Most coastal-designed rooms lend themself to lots of whites and blues hint. These sets of color will bring a calming and relaxing mood for a place you rest each night.

For this design, there are three foundations colors to built the mood in the room:

  1. a dominant color that will be used to the walls, or main hint to the carpet/rug and fabrics;
  2. a secondary color for your selective coastal décor items; and
  3. little of an accent color to add liveliness and flair to the room.

For example, the walls of this bedroom colored in blue and some pillows pattern to set the foundation for beach mood perfection — the secondary color used on sheets and curtain. The owner then adds a brown and wooden accent, as seen in the furniture and rug.

Coastal Design Keeps It Natural.

Coastal Design Keeps It Natural

To get the relaxed calming vibe, coastal design usually includes many natural elements. It comes through the furniture, often made from wicker, rattan, weathered woods, and fabrics. The rugs are mostly straw, seagrass, or jute. The fabrics used around the space are simple and devoid of shine. Instead of metallics or flashy textures, you can install natural materials or light, billowy fabrics, like sheer curtain panels.

Besides, there are a few natural elements you can introduce into your bedroom to bring in a little coastal style, which you install to your bedroom art or as decoration to the entire room. They are driftwood, greenery, twigs, stones, shells, branches, grasses, and flowers

White Is Key.

White Is Key
Sharps Bedrooms

While most people picture a bold blue and white palette for your coastal bedroom, a crisp, white interior is more accurate, for it favors the neutrality. This idea is minimalist in design;  less is more. Once more, the coastal design emphasizes natural light, so a white room is going to make space feel even airier.

But even coastal is about subtlety and softness; you can accent with color. If you want to keep it soft, choose the neutral accent colors, such as a warmer beige or khaki, light blues, greys, and greens. The bedroom in this picture, it’s adjusted with some shades of gray for the bedding and wooden feel for the furniture.
