Beach Themed Bedroom Decor Ideas

Harbour House Crystal Beach Bedding
Looking to bring a breath of fresh air to your bedroom? Why not choose a refreshing sea breeze to lighten up a dark and stodgy winter room or bring new life to the summer. It's bright, it's cheerful, and it is a very popular theme for master bedrooms all over the world. This is my guide to all of the best bedroom decor for pulling off the look!

First of all, you will need some beach themed bedding to form the centerpiece of the room. There are many different styles available, from shell themes, tropical artwork and sandy palm tree themed pieces. On this page are just a few of my favorites, and you can find more incredible beach themed bedding here.

Kona Comforter Set
By far my favorite piece of beach bedding is the Harbor House Crystal Beach collection featured at the top of this page, a bright and modern design which comes with a comforter, a bedskirt and two pillow shams. I would pair it with a white set of sheets or any shade of blue. You can also get a similar look with a more rustic feel with the Seashell Beach House bedding above, which comes with a quilt, two pillow shams, a three beautiful decorative throw cushions.

Palm tree bedding is relatively common, coming usually in a green and white design or a sand-color. I much prefer the sand colored beddings, and out of those, I recommend checking out the Kona Comforter set! You can get the matching sheet set for it here.

If you are painting your room to match the theme, there are really three ways to go. The classic look is a light pastel color, such as a sandy beige or a baby blue. Alternatively, for an ultra-modern look, shades of white look great with darker furniture. Lastly, for something seriously bold, bright summer colors work very well, such as neon blue, bold orange or a sunny yellow.

With the walls painted up, have a couple of choice wall decorations add personalization to your wall space, but don't go overboard. The simpler and more realistic the decoration, the better for this theme. 3D art work with simple color schemes like the Sealife Box Art above works very well, regardless of whether you've gone for demure or bold colors on your walls.

There is also a lot of 'real' art out there, the sort that incorporates items you might actually find on the beach, such as proper shell art or the unique and interesting fishing net hanging decoration featured on the left. They are a wonderful way to bring the magic of the seaside into your home. You can even make your own shell art if you have access to shells: check out this handy book.

I always recommend decals when it comes to decorating bedrooms, as they are a great way to change the look and feel of a room without having to make a permanent decision: no marks if you want to take them down! My favorite decal is the quote and starfish art on the right: it's very cute and calming.

Shell Two Door Cabinet
If money is no object, why not go all out and replace all the furniture in your bedroom with something a little more apt? The best materials for beach bedroom furniture is wicker and rattan. My favorite is the wicker look, and above is a whole set of bedroom furniture that fits the theme perfectly. You can get a wicker storage cubby to go with it too if you need even more storage space.

If rough wicker isn't your thing, go for wooden furniture. Driftwood can look lovely with light bedding and decorations, but I would avoid it if you are going for very bold colors in your walls or bedding. Light white woods also look beautiful, like this gorgeous distressed bed frame or the incredible two door storage cabinet on the right.

Last but not least, it's time to add those finishing touches to the room with some little bits and pieces, like rugs, mirrors, curtains, clocks, and so one. A must have is some fake or real shells to use as ornaments on your cabinets and shells, and you can find some lovely looking ones here.

Beyond that, the sky is the limit. I've included a couple of accessories here - if you went for the two door cabinet above be sure to get the matching mirror for it on the right too! I also love the seashell rug featured above.

As well as these, other fun accessories that I like include a scrap wood-style waste-paper basket, these cute wall hooks shaped like sandals and this cute beach themed picture frame to immortalize all of your favorite holiday memories. Pick your favorites, and be sure to shop around to ensure you find everything you need and want to make your room perfect.

So there you have it! That is my guide to decorating a beach themed master bedroom. I hope you found some great ideas and have a lot of fun decorating. If you enjoyed this post and would like to see more, be sure to check out the rest of my blog for all of the best themed bedroom ideas on the net!
