25 Coastal Bedroom Ideas For A Calming Oasis

By Interior Designer Tracy Svendsen | Published on May 14, 2024 | 

Coastal Bedroom Ideas: Coastal bedrooms embody the tranquility of the beach, offering a calming retreat no matter your location. Imagine waking to the soft hues of sand and sea, natural textures, and the airy feel of a gentle ocean breeze.

The foundation of your coastal haven starts with the bed. Opt for a material that speaks to your comfort and style – be it the plush embrace of an upholstered linen bed, the natural texture of seagrass, or the warmth of wood. Remember, your comfort is key!

Indulge in layers of cozy bedding. Pile on soft, fluffy duvets and pillows, and don’t forget a throw for extra snuggling. Think of textures that will add visual interest and adapt to the seasons. 

Swap chunky winter throws for light linen ones in summer, keeping your space fresh and inviting year-round. A plush rug beside the bed provides a soft landing spot for your toes as you start your day. 

Natural textures are the hallmarks of coastal style. Linen, raffia, wood, cotton, rattan, and jute add richness and visual interest. These versatile materials work beautifully throughout the year. Feature image courtesy of Mabley Handler Design.

Here are a few beautifully designed coastal bedrooms by top interior designers:

The pièce de résistance? A fireplace paired with a cleverly disguised Frame TV. “It looks like a piece of artwork,” Hammel says, “but it’s actually a television.” This ingenious solution marries functionality with form, ensuring entertainment and relaxation within this serene retreat.

Weathered ceramic and clear glass vases, books, wicker baskets, and coastal artwork all come together to tell a story of the sea.

While this is an image of an office, the design’s calming color palette and focus on natural textures would translate perfectly to a serene bedroom retreat. This space exemplifies Meg McSherry’s ability to create a signature style that transcends functionality.

The high ceilings are perfectly complemented by a farmhouse-style canopy bed crafted from oak and rubberwood veneers, its clean lines echoing the overall light and airy feel.

An ivory and taupe embroidered coverlet made of 100% cotton chenille graces the bed for summer comfort.
