Our bedrooms should be a serene space where we can escape to and rejuvenate after long days. Inspiring dreams of white sand beaches and boats gently rocking on calm waters, the Nautical style is a perfect theme for your bedroom. Here’s how you can transform your room into a calm, coastal escape and create a tranquil environment to make falling asleep a breeze.
Setting the tone of your bedroom’s style, your bedding set needs to be undeniably nautical. Search for duvet covers and pillowcases with a colour scheme of blue and white, possibly with bursts of red if you like a touch of vibrancy. Fresh and timeless, stripes are a classic of coastal design – decorating everything from traditional sailor uniforms to beach huts, boats, and sails – and will look great running vertically across your duvet and pillows as the base of your theme.
Be sure to pick some bed sheets and extra pillowcases that complement your set - such as fresh white or navy blue. Black or neutral sheets might clash with the look you're going for.
A great way to accessorise your new bedding set, scatter cushions come in a variety of shapes and styles and can be combined to create inviting and stylish displays. Illustrations of sea creatures, such as lobsters and crabs, or boat-inspired imagery of anchors and ships wheels are perfect for solidifying your theme. They also offer a great opportunity to inject some glamour into your style, with sequins and lustrous metallic tones, or uniqueness with chic rope detail.
A chance to add texture to your room, nautical throws can be crafted with a variety of fabrics and weaves.
A cosy knitted throw offers a warm extra layer for the colder months, while thinner and lighter throws are ideal for enriching your space during the spring and summer.
Knot-tied and traditional tassels infuse your room with a casual, laid-back vibe and you can continue the striped theme with a patterned piece.
Once your bedding itself is all styled up, accent it with some chic décor to really make it stand out. A pretty themed table lamp or some wall-hung artwork will help to tie the theme of your whole bedroom together, drawing attention to the focal point - your bed!
