Though I live in the land-locked heartland as a resident fairy on the prairie, there is something utterly irresistible to me about coastal cottage style. In 2020, I spent a vacation sleeping steps from the ocean and waking each morning to the sound of crashing waves. So Airy Coastal Cottage Bedroom is decor inspiration I am all too happy to revisit!

I am loving the leather stools at the end of the beds above (and also that pink wall!!!).
See this story for ideas for pink paint colors.
Need an idea for a vibrant avocado green paint color? Try Yeabridge Green!
Need inspiration for a pale and illuminating blue paint color? Try Farrow & Ball’s Borrowed Light:
F&B calls this paint color the color of summer skies…sounds perfect about now.
Encouragement Right Where We Are
Uncertainty and challenges in the complex 2020s affect each and every one of us, and we are surely dependent upon each other in new ways.
As we return to normalcy (wait a sec, does anything feel normal at this juncture?), there are plenty of ongoing cares.
Reminders that all of life is sacred and holy seem especially important to have within reach right now. I hope you will pin encouragement to spread more peace and soulful beauty through our land.
Bedroom Décor Ideas From My Bedroom
In my former bedroom, coastal cottage design ingredients read rustic yet airy.
The color palette is atmospheric and marshmallow-y cloud-like with soothing whites, light grey and a touch of pale pink.
Natural elements include white oak hardwood flooring and knotty alder doors.
Rustic Alder Interior Doors
The mix of metals in the bedroom ushers in a more casual, laid back, unfussy mood. While lamps, cabinet knobs, and door hardware is oil rubbed bronze, there are also antiqued brass vintage sconces, a shiny gold made in Sweden vintage chandelier in a closet, and both chrome and antiqued silver finishes in the bath.
It does not feel like too many different finishes, and what is lovely about cottage style, is it is fitting!
Reclaimed Pine Plank Statement Wall
The reclaimed wood wall was a DIY easy project with Stikwood (Hamptons).
Pale Color Palette
The Belgian linen slipcovered chair in our bedroom (RH) was my desk chair in our former home. Smaller scale chairs–even when they are considered ‘dining chairs’–can sometimes serve as a lovely accent or reading chair.
This linen quilt has my name all over it…so yummy!
And don’t we think this airy coastal macrame swing would be perfect in any room at all?

If we’re not blessed with a bedroom porch from which to suspend our hanging bed or bench, we could always add a swing in lieu of a bedroom chair!

Lately I have toured a few older homes where the bedrooms were small and lacked a closet. Here’s a ready-made alternative with coastal cottage good looks which would cost much more for materials and labor to build from scratch.
Obviously, this dreamy hall tree would work beautifully in a mud room or entry too and could be built-in if you’re looking for a more custom look.

I have a small kitchen with one short blank wall. it’s not an open kitchen but very cozy. The walls are SW agreeable gray and cabinets are BM himalayan trek. I need more cabinet space but cost is a factor. How do you think the above hall tree would look? Would a hall tree look out of place in a kitchen? Many thanks for your wonderful blog.
That’s an interesting idea, and I would have to hear more about what your functional needs are and the style of your kitchen and cabinets. I see this hall tree as much more than a hall tree since it provides architecture and could be further customized with paint, hardware, etc. to suit your style and palette. Pay attention to the depth of the unit and mark off in your kitchen how it would fit…will doors be opening into another door? I wonder if a better option might be freestanding pantry if what you are after is storage and architectural interest. Feel free to keep the discussion and questions flowing here, and thanks so much for reading.
