Close your eyes and think of the beach. What comes to mind? If you’re like most people, you probably picture blue-green waters, long stretches of sand, clear skies, and soaring palm trees. Maybe you imagine sail boats bobbing on the horizon or beautiful shells that sound like the sea when you put them to your ear. Regardless of the specifics, a day at the coast is something to treasure. So it’s no surprise that coastal bedding sets and decor are making their mark on the world of interior design.
Referring to a bedroom aesthetic emphasizing a relaxed feel, coastal decor is at once soothing to the senses and delightfully whimsical. Along with showcasing bedding in an array of cool colors and neutrals, a coastal room may include natural wood tones, nautical accessories, gauzy linens, and even playful touches like woven rugs and bowls of sea glass. Ready to incorporate a coastal vibe into your own home? Read on to learn about the different beach comforters available at Latest Bedding and discover which coastal trends are right for you.
You don’t have to own a cottage by the shore to consider incorporating coastal bedding into your decor. In fact, plenty of city and suburban dwellers are getting into this trend. Endlessly popular, this design style is beloved in part due to its natural beauty. While blues and watery hues are common in the world of coastal decor, the style is also marked by the use of materials like cotton, linen, rope, wicker, beech, and driftwood. The end result is at once beachy and chic.
Additionally, beach bedding and decor is popular because it promotes a feeling of calm. Relaxed and cozy, this trend inspires residents and visitors alike to settle in and unwind – something we could all use a bit more of these days. Whether you opt for casual beach decor featuring stripes and shells or something more sophisticated with bamboo and woven accents, it’s easy to feel like you spent the day sunning by the sea.
The hallmarks of classic coastal decor range from blue and white to stripes, seersucker to sailboats, shells, and sea glass. However, the truth is that coastal styles can be as diverse and varied as the people who adopt them. Here are some tips on styling your coasting bedding set to create a look sure to spark joy.
Choosing the right bedding set is only half the battle. You also need to seek out ways of accessorizing your bedroom to complete the beachy vibe. When it comes to coastal decor, we love incorporating fresh flowers into the space. Hit the local florist, buy a bouquet at the supermarket, or simply pick some blooms from the backyard before displaying them in your favorite glass or ceramic vase. Want to save money on accessories? Opt for silk flowers instead of the real deal. Hydrangeas are particularly lovely with a beach-inspired bedroom.
Turquoise, navy, and green are common color choices for a coastal bedroom. However, these days, an increasing number of home designers are opting for neutrals over blues. We’re talking curtains, pillows, bedskirts, and even shams in all your favorite shades of ivory and tan. Additionally, you can celebrate the natural aesthetic with your furniture choices. For example, opt for pale or white-washed woods over more traditional shades like black and ebony. Add in a set of creamy Egyptian cotton sheets, and the end result is sure to soothe both your body and your mind.
Speaking of soothing, one of the best things about a beach bedroom is that it can inspire you to snuggle in and relax. We’re talking about the kinds of cozy throw pillows and blankets you may have seen in your grandmother’s house back in the day. For best results, vary your fabric textures and trims. For example, you could choose an ivory pillow with tassels and a chunky knit blanket the color of the sea at dusk.
Want to ensure your coastal bedroom is truly a place to wind down? Add some comfortable seating. Swivel chairs are great for curling up with a good book. However, we also love the look of wicker and wood in this area of the home. The goal is to choose a chair or chaise that inspires you to lounge.
Your bedroom is the place where you spend seven to nine hours a day, so it’s only logical to want to ensure this space is one you adore. Fortunately, beach bedding is known for helping people rest and recharge after a long day. Here are some of the best luxury comforter sets to create a coastal vibe and calm your mind.
