A Coastal Inspired Bedroom

A Coastal Inspired Bedroom

I’m still searching for the perfect bedroom style. It’s been a few months now and I’m swaying from one theme to another but one which really caught my eye recently is the coastal theme. With its crisp whites and teal green / blues, I’m still undecided as to whether it would be a style you could pull off in a chill out room? (along with the question is teal blue or green? answers on a postcard please!) So taking a Seasalt Cornwall duvet set I’ve spotted, as a starting point, I’ve began pulling together a mood board of how I’d like a coastal inspired bedroom to look.

 I’m still hanging on to that lovely sunny feeling that yellow brings into a room which although isn’t always what your drawn too during the winter and autumn months, the mustard shade of yellow is more of an all round year colour. I love having it around the home as it really injects life into what could be a very subtle and calming scheme. A mustard yellow throw does all the above as well as giving a warm cosy feel to an otherwise spring summer scheme.

I’ve also picked out the stripes in the bed linen to match the (Graham and Brown) wall paper. Trying to pull the theme together is always the hardest part. I didn’t want anything to look like it has just been chucked together. Sticking with a main colour, which would be the white here, (is white a colour? I’ve got serious colour doubting issues as you could probably tell) I’ve used teal and yellow as the accents with subtle coloured nautical accessories in muted shades of greys, blue and sliver.

The quirky boat shelf is from a small online store called Dorset Gifts, it’s such an unusual piece and the white washed wood, along with the Roxy distressed table lamp, complete the coastal feel. While the cute french folding mirror from newly discovered and new fave website, Rose and Grey is a great bedroom accessory as well as a place to hang costume jewellery that’s too nice to be hidden away.  And finally the Next feature lamp reminded me of a star lit sky,  I didn’t want to look too modern in my 1940’s terrace home, so these last few vintage inspired pieces bring it away from the crisp modern feel it might otherwise lean towards.

So there you have it, my coastal inspired bedroom makeover wish list. Now if I could just make an actual decision as to whether this would be the perfect theme bedroom for a bedroom by the sea, then I’m sure my husband would be a very happy man.

My indecisiveness drives him bonkers!

    This looks exciting. I love Seasalt too. That duvet set looks gorgeous and I’ll bet it’s really soft and cosy! Can’t wait to see the finished project. #HomeEtc

      I haven’t seen it in the flesh yet but if I do finally settle on this scheme (it’s still work in process) I will be sure to share it.

    I have a nautical bedroom so love all these coastal touches. I need a beach house so I can expand my use of it all!! X

      My only concern is that I’ll go off it in the winter and hanker for a dark brooding boudoir.

    This looks so relaxing and calm, the boat shelves would look so cute in a children’s room too 🙂 #HomeEtc

      totally agree on them looking fab in a kids room. We’ve already done the nautical theme in my boys room years ago so probably won’t get away with it again.

    I love your choices! The Seasalt duvet is perfect.

    I know what you mean about changing your mind about a style – we’ve been living in our house for two years now and the only room we’ve completed is my daughters bedroom. I just cannot decide on what I want to do with the other rooms! Xxx #HomeEtc

      I’m awful at changing my mind which makes any final decisions quite difficult!
