A beach themed bedroom can provide a mini vacation during drab seasons of the year. Paint the walls in relaxing colors found at the beach and accessorize with souvenirs from beach vacations. The beach theme sets a relaxing tone perfect for a bedroom. Shells are an attractive and inexpensive way to accessorize. Contain a collection of small shells in a glass bowl. Arrange large shells on night stands and shelves. Fill a shadow box with favorite shells and hang on the wall.
Use bedding that incorporates a shell design. Beach colors include shades of tan, white, blue, green and brown. Go with a crisp blue and white palette, or use a combination of several beach colors on the wall. Use wall paper or border emphasizing light, airy colors such as white, tan, light blue or green. Or, use dark colors to give the room the feel of a light house or boat house.
Decorate with items found along the beach. Use framed posters and prints of hot dog stands and changing booths. Add sailboats, life preservers and palm trees. Use light colored woods and wicker for picture frames and accents. Decorate your windows in style with light colored room darkening cellular shades with top down bottom up feature that will give you that warm and cool feeling but still giving you privacy. Most importantly go heavy on the beach theme with bedding printed with shells, waves or palm trees. Or apply a light touch by using solid colored sheets and blankets in beach colors. Consider adding decorative pillows with beach themes. Having your bedroom beached out adds a sense of love for nature and also clean, breezy with a coastal style.
