It’s Not Always About The Blues

This modern coastal bedroom idea works perfectly for those who wish to bring the charming beach resort atmosphere into their homes without having to go all out to emphasize the theme. The neutral color scheme also helps if you’re looking to keep the option of upgrading the room open.

The weathered texture of the paneling works perfectly as a part of your coastal chic bedroom.

Distressed Wood Furnishings
The beauty of distressed wood lies in the weathered and old appearance that gives it a wonderful texture as well as a rustic appeal. This furnishing is especially popular among coastal decorating ideas as it gives the room a sea-worn-like appearance that most look for.
This particular bedroom by @reneegaddisinteriors uses distressed furniture items so perfectly. I am absolutely in love with the light blue tinge of the headboard which is mesmerizing for this interior aesthetic, along with that wooden cabinet: it’s such a dream!
Distressed wood also makes it easier to bring in multiple colors into your space as it doesn’t seem to clash with the rest of the color palette, unlike the darker or lighter shades of wood.

Dried palm leaves are another alternative if you’re looking for neutral-toned coastal wall décor. These can be simply placed within ceramic vases or you could go the extra mile and search for a wall piece to use as a focal décor item above your bed.
