While a coastal home may be bound to a daydream, that won’t stop me from scheming and dreaming to create a coastal cottage bedroom retreat! If your daily life is still rather socially distant, now may be the ideal time to give your bedroom some thought. Because no matter what its size or architecture, a more soothing retreat is quite within reach. In that spirit I bring Coastal Cottage Bedroom Décor Ideas: Get a Beachy Natural Look.

Bring Nature Inside
Simple branches from the yard and sprigs snipped from the landscape can instantly quiet and sweeten the mood inside.

Bedroom Décor Ideas From My Bedroom
My own bedroom never fails to deliver comfort…chronic illness (Crohn’s disease and beyond) means I often retreat for rest and rejuvenation. If you find yourself especially stressed during this season of pandemic weariness, do visit this story.
There are plenty of nods to airy coastal design in my own bedroom with its marshmallow-y soft colors and soothing white, light grey and pale pink accents.
I brought in a mix of metals, white oak solid hardwood, and just-right-for-a woodsy-cottage planked alder doors. Here’s a before of elements in our bedroom before we renovated:
Rustic Wood Interior Doors
Reclaimed Planked Wood Wall
Pale Color Palette
The RH Belgian linen slipcovered chair in our bedroom served as a desk chair in our former home. We tend to think a chunky, overstuffed club chair or chaise is what is needed in the bedroom. However, sometimes a smaller scale chair–even those labeled ‘dining chairs’–may do the trick.
Simple White Coastal Cottage Inspo
Light Blue Bedding
Traditional Swing Arm Sconces
Coastal White Bedside Tables
What a dream to have an adjoining patio or porch off the bedroom!
I guess we don’t need a porch to swing…how about a swing in lieu of a bedroom chair?
Coastal Style Rattan Pendants
Airy Parsons Style Side Tables
Navy Blue Lamps
Coastal Linen Headboard Ideas
Blue & White Quilt
As I toured older homes on the market (before sheltering in place when our son was house hunting), I noticed many bedrooms lacked a closet. Here’s a ready-made alternative with coastal cottage good looks which might cost thousands of dollars to create from scratch.
Obviously, this dreamy hall tree would work beautifully in a mud room too and could be built-in for a more custom look.
