Tips for Creating a Modern Coastal Bedroom

Here are a few things I think are non-negotiables when creating a room with this modern coastal look:

Color • It’s next to impossible to create a coastal inspired room without using cool colors in the decor. Blues, greens, mints, and turquoises are all on the table and mixing these colors is welcomed too! Pair these with light and bright neutrals to create that open, airy feeling.

Texture • Another element not to ignore in a coastal inspired room is texture, specifically natural wood. The color is reminiscent of a sandy beach, and a little distressing is all you need to remind most people of drift wood and beach chairs. Mixing natural wood with smooth, clean glass or sculptural pieces, like the lamps I used above, helps bring in the watery element and balance out the wood.

Clean Lines • To incorporate a modern feeling into your space, choose furniture with clean, crisp lines. This balances out the rougher, cottage style that coastal decor can tend towards, and creates a nice balance of style and sense of organization.
