7 Coastal Bedding Ideas That’ll Make Your Space Feel Like an Exclusive Beachfront Resort

Imagine laying in a hammock, piña colada in hand, as you listen to the sound of the wind blowing through the palm trees. It’s a pretty relaxing scene, right? Although your bedroom might not be located smack dab in the middle of paradise, there’s one way to capture that same feeling in the boudoir.

This is where coastal bedding ideas come into play. They’re yet another way to achieve that fresh and airy look that we all love and adore. Beachy bedding is often made of breathable materials like linen and cotton, sporting signature palettes: think tropical colors, bright whites, and easy neutrals.

If you’re aiming to create a bedroom that’s brimming with seaside flair, look no further than these seven coastal bedding ideas.

1. Go with all white.

When it comes to coastal style, we can always steer you in the direction of top-to-bottom white to achieve the seaside look you’re hoping for. In your coastal bedroom, contemplate all-white bedding, complete with white pillowcases and a white coverlet, like this gorgeous one from Serena & Lily.

2. Include pops of color.

If your version of coastal style leans more toward island locales rather than East Coast ports of call, we suggest weaving in cheerful bursts of color. Using white as a starting point, Rachel of Pencil Shavings Studio created a truly tropical look with the help of a vibrant striped lumbar pillow, chambray accent pillows, and a custom orange headboard.

3. Consider subtle patterning.

Let’s say the subtle side of the spectrum feels more “you” as you look through coastal bedding ideas. In this case, we recommend relaxed neutrals with understated stripes and plaids, which is what Kim of Sand & Sisal did in this modern coastal bedroom.

At the beach, everything can feel so easy and laid-back. You can bring that vibe into your coastal style bedroom by going with a less is more approach. Carley K. embraced minimalist seaside ambiance in this sanctuary, opting for cream-colored bedding with matching, simple wall decor.

5. Keep things fresh in linen.

The last time you were wearing a linen dress or pair of shorts, you might have been at the beach. But you don’t have to have your toes in the sand to enjoy the airy, relaxed material. Welcome that same look into your bedroom like Mollie of Design Loves Detail by including linen bedding.

7. You can’t go wrong with blue hues.

If we were to choose the quintessential coastal bedding idea, it would undoubtedly involve the color blue. To bring in the feeling of ocean waves, you can incorporate several different shades in your space, proven by this setup from Anastasia of The Identité Collective.
