Achieving the feeling of living in a beach side house all year round is a dream many wish for. You may not have that beach side cottage, but by choosing the right beach bedding you certainly can get the atmosphere in your own home. The styles that are available range from traditional to contemporary and whether you are decorating a child’s room or an adult retreat, you will find something suitable.
With a few wise selections and finishes you will be hard-pressed to believe you are not stepping away from reality and into your seaside luxury home whenever you step inside your bedroom. Relaxing amongst the cottons, linens and other natural finishes will have the feeling like you stepped outside and encountered the white tropical beaches of your dreams.
Flooring is an integral part of decorating and keeping to the theme you have selected. A few well-chosen sea-grass or cotton rugs on a well-finished wooden or bamboo floor will do this for you easily. If you wish to keep your flooring to a pale or white wood, you can easily go for pickled wood. Either way, your wooden floors will add warmth to the room as well as bring you many years of enjoyment.
Your bedside lamps as well as the bedside pedestal you select will be best if kept in the same theme. Choosing all white bedroom furniture can give you the feeling of space and lightness. The table could be a heavier kind of cabinet with drawers or a door, or even a frail ornate table. Keep the lamp in a similar style to match with it and don’t allow your ornaments to overpower the room. A few well-placed photos or knick-knacks will be sufficient.
Keeping the walls in either a more pale color of your beach bedding, or simply by using a light creamy color as well as highlighting the wooden finishes such as door and window frames in a crisp white color will make the room feel bigger and give the illusion of more space. Many wallpapers are also available that will match or co-ordinate with your selected bed linens.
Your individual likes and dislikes will ultimately dictate the style of bed you eventually choose. Wrought iron, brass bed or solid wooden shaker style would all suit the beach style, and it’s up to you what you put in the room. Keeping the furniture similar, bamboo or wood, will bring the style together and your bedding will simply be the cherry on top.
The window treatments, whatever you settle on, should be similar in keeping with your nautical theme. This is why you will need to avoid heavier fabrics and rather go for the sheer or lighter ones. Cotton, linen or even a well-made wooden blind will all be in keeping with your chosen style.
