Beach cottage bedrooms can be turned into your own private haven by using the ocean and natural surroundings as inspiration. You can choose decor items that celebrate your home beach location, pamper yourself by choosing soft cotton linens in ocean-inspired shades and decorating with sky and water colors that make it hard to distinguish where your bedroom ends and the beach begins. Paint bedroom walls a water-inspired shadow. Choose a fresh green shade or soft turquoise color reminiscent of the Caribbean Sea. The refreshing walls will set the stage for other beach-themed furniture and decor.
Buy whitewashed furniture, which seems to have a natural age after being outdoors in salty sea air. Choose a matching headboard, chest of drawers, desk and bookshelf set. Choose a nightstand with a glass or marble top for an elegant look. Many types of wood can be whitewashed, like oak and lighthouse. Hang floral white curtains from bamboo rod cottage bedrooms. Sheer curtains will catch the soft ocean breezes and allow the sun to shine in. Install linens or blinds under curtains that can be pulled down for extra privacy.
Buy comfortable beach-inspired cottage bedrooms. Choose a casual spokesman featuring stripes of soft coral, blue, ivory, pink and gold. Increase the bed with decorative pillows that show mussels, starfish, coral reefs and sand dollar designs. Decorating with shellfish accessories. Hang a chopped elegant chandelier featuring dangling seashells, freshwater pearls and pieces of living ocean glass. Replace plain dresser knobs with shellfish-shaped versions. Dress up a regular wall shelf by gluing mussels and starfish around the perimeter of it.
