Hello again! Dawn here, from AD Aesthetic, back with another mood board for your decoration inspiration. In previous posts, I’ve shared rustic modern, vintage with a modern twist, southwest modernized, and mid-century modern styles — and today it’s all about modern coastal style!
Aren’t these rooms just gorgeous and refreshing? I love how light and airy they are, while also looking very modern and comfortable. With so much inspiration, I got to work creating a modern coastal bedroom moodboard:

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.
As always, thank you to Cassity and the Remodelaholic team for having me back each month. I’d love for you to visit me over on my site, ADaesthetic.com, or follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram for more updates and inspiration. Have a great day, friends!
