Shades of sea glass, beachy shades of blue, neutrals in white and beige, and pops of bright color in pinks, yellows, oranges, and reds all work well with a coastal theme. Use natural materials such as jute, rattan, and rope, and choose natural, billowy fabrics like linen.
As you pick furniture pieces, stick to more neutral colors and save the pops of bright color for accent pieces. Interior designers often favor white-washed wood for a coastal theme. However, even dark stained wood can evoke a dramatic tropical bungalow. You might choose furniture painted in shades of white, beige, gray, and blue. Even black could work, though you want to be sure that darker furniture does not make the room feel drab.
Bring in plenty of green plants, or if you do not have a green thumb, incorporate greenery through artwork.
Additionally, natural light is a key element to any coastal bedroom. If you already get good natural light in your bedroom, you are well on your way to achieving a beachy bedroom. Even if you do not have great lighting, you can work to create a room that reflects and makes good use of minimal natural lighting. Interior decorators suggest adding mirrors, angling furniture toward the window, painting walls in shades of light gray, and getting a light-colored rug to amplify the natural light in a room.
