We get so excited about beach-themed home design, as there is so much fun and variety in what you can do. Your own personal taste and individual touches can be brought out beautifully in many different ways meaning that you are never restricted, and you can make your space truly your own.
Beach themed kids’ rooms come in many different colours and styles as well, and can be as unique as your own high-spirited child. Wonderfully gender-neutral, a beach themed room can inspire creative play and imaginative fun, as well as teaching your kids about the importance of respecting our oceans and the glorious life within her.
There are really no rules with a beach theme, and you can play around as you or your child likes. Coastally inspired ideas are generally serene and relaxed, cool and breezy, with either a natural vibe of sun, sea and sand or the bright colours of beachside recreation or underwater life.
Furniture and decorations may show fish, shells, starfish and other creatures, watercraft like boats and surfboards floating on the waves, ocean side flora like tropical trees and bright blooms or summertime fun like ice cream and beachballs.
Often there is a happy use of weatherworn and distressed furniture that looks like it may have washed up on the beach, or made from natural textures like grass, wood, and bamboo.
We love the colour combinations and the relaxed feel of a coastally designed room. Here are some of our favourite ideas for beach themed kids’ rooms and unique décor.
Calming Ocean Nursery
The tranquil blues and whites of an ocean nursery have a beautiful way of not being too ‘boy-room’, and are stunning for baby girls as well (and great for when you don’t know the gender of your baby yet).
These tones are sublime for relaxing your little one to wind down for sleep, or as a lovely calming welcome when she wakes up. You will also find this a lovely place to sit and feed in the middle of the night.
Choose several different tones of blue, as the ocean changes colour and personality every day, and then accentuate with white wood furniture, pale motifs such as white starfish, clouds, birds or seashells.
