One way to create a coastal feel without doing a full bedroom remodel is to add layers of texture and color. Here, the buttery yellow tufted headboard offers a sunny hue, while the styled nightstand holds a shell-textured lamp, abstract art in beach-inspired colors, and gilded heron figurines. Warm taupe walls and white linens allow these colors and textures to stand out without competing for attention.

This gallery wall brings a definitive coastal flare to the room thanks to the cohesive blues and greens of the artwork.

Repurpose paper maps into a gorgeous and unique wallpaper to add a bit of coastal flair to your room. And just because you have an eye-catching wallpaper doesn't mean you need to play it safe with the rest of the room. A geometric-print headboard, midcentury-inspired nightstand, and a tiny sailboat all add to the coastal feel.

White Coastal Bedroom

One way to achieve a maritime look is to keep the color palette simple, bringing in brighter hues through texture and art. Here, a dark and weathered headboard looks almost as if it were pulled from the water and restored. Pops of texture, such as the macrame wall hanging, abstract seascape artwork, and patterned throw pillows add interest to the otherwise white bedroom and makes the simple space feel finished and intentional.

When designing a coastal bedroom, think about what colors and textures you'd expect to see when you're at the beach. Consider classic coastal colors like whites, blues, and greens, paired with natural textures like jute or rattan. If you're not feeling white walls, a crisp yet pale blue paint can bring out the depth of the deeper blue accent colors.

Designing a costal bedroom doesn't mean you have to shy away from traditionally glam elements, like this lacquered blue nightstand and studded headboard. When working with a monochromatic color scheme, don't worry too much about all the shades matching. The nightstand, lamp, and pillows are all varying shades of blue, but they work well together against the all-white backdrop.
