Saffron Marigold - Updated: October 13, 2021

Wave hello to elegant coastal bedding! Unless you’re one of the lucky few with an oceanfront view, the bed is going to be the focal point of your room, so let’s use it to deliver loads of coastal chic style. Our coastal bedspreads and duvet covers are designed to bring you on a journey. Carry your imagination to the depths of the Pacific, the beaches of Marrakech, and the tropical gardens of Hawaii. Of course, the word coastal conjures different vistas for each of us (rivers, lakes, bays, rocky shores, sugar-sand beaches), but our exclusive block print designs will help you create a a beautiful coastal bedroom that speaks to your idea of the coast.

1. Beautiful blue coastal bedding

Naturally, blue will always be the go-to color when it comes to coastal decorating. Navy blue nods to the depth of the sea, sky blue teal speaks to reflective lakes, and turquoise touches on tropical waters. Given this, bedding from our Midnight Lotus collection is right at home in any coastal bedroom. In this print, various shades of blue mingle across swirling vines and lotus blossoms. This floral print duvet cover has a slightly tropical feeling–just right for beachy bedding. Available as a reversible cotton duvet cover or lightweight bedspread.

2. Lightweight, cool coastal bedspreads

A glorious lightweight bedspread is great in summertime or for warm-weather locales. (They transition easily into cooler weather: simply layer the bed with a thicker blanket on chilly nights). If you’re looking for coastal bedding for a summer home or for a beachy bedroom, then consider our Celestial Embrace collection. Filled with imagery from the cosmos, this print feels a little bit retro and a little bit zen–think 1950s Hawaiian resort chic. Accessorize the room with curtains in the ivory and gold colorway for a beachy bedroom that’s divine.

3. Tropical, beachy coastal bedding

When your ideas of the coast includes romantic sunsets, lush florals, and sumptuous fruits, then a tropical take on coastal decor is in order. Our Tropical Garden collection depicts loose, organic bouquets of hibiscus and star gazer lilies in sunset colors Dress your bed in this tropical floral duvet cover (or bedspread), and you’ll like you’ve entered the best suite at a posh Caribbean resort.

4. Navy & nautical coastal bedding

Get on board with navy blue coastal bedding for a cozy bedroom with a nautical touch. After all, navy blue is classic for a nautical bedroom, and our Pacific Blue collection captures the essence of the sea. With its zen-like wave pattern and crest border, this nautical duvet cover reverses to a shell print. Choose from the cotton duvet cover or coastal bedspread for a bedroom that sails straight to classic coastal style.

5. Fresh & modern coastal bedding

Do you find yourself poring over magazine photos of sleek waterfront homes wishing you could re-create the look at home? Well, you can–at least your bedroom can! Rendered in a chic palette of white on white, our Royal Mansour line makes it easy to design a bedroom with modern coastal sensibility. A classic white ticking stripe borders a lattice print of medallions, creating even more visual interest. This white duvet cover proves that decorating with white in a modern coastal bedroom is anything but bland. (If you enjoy the coastal farmhouse look, even better: the duvet reverses to reveal the same design in grey and white!)

How to style a coastal bedroom with style

To style a coastal bedroom, begin by decluttering. At the end of the day, you want to retreat to a calm space, and the easiest way to do that is by keeping your bedroom tidy. That’s easy to do when you avoid bringing lots of extras into the space. Once you’ve edited to your heart’s content, add a few coastal accents that evoke the spirit of the sea without being kitschy or trite. Here are a few easy ways to infuse your room with coastal style, however you define the idea of coastal.

Consider coastal bedroom furniture

Find coastal furniture that echoes the look of the woods you’d find strewn along the shoreline. Whitewashed or limewashed wood pieces, driftwood finishes, or natural wickers would all be at home here. You’d find a mango wood and cane dresser (like this one from Frances & Son) in any coastal style rooms. Versatile pieces like this are always a good buy.

Pile on the throw pillows

You don’t have to have a tower of pillows at the headboard, but a few Euro shams do make a bed look more inviting. Our Starry Nights Euro sham has a bit of vintage Cape Cod charm, but the pattern is gentle enough to mix in with other prints and pillows. Plus, it’s hand block printed deep indigo and white–perfect with the rest of your coastal decor!

Reach for soft, natural rugs

A sisal rug always look great, and a sea grass rug seems like an obvious choice for a coastal space. (Is there anything more coastal than grass from the sea?) Still, neither fibers are quite soft enough for walking around barefoot, which makes them poor choices for coastal bedroom rugs. Turn to a jute rug instead. Jute is softer and wool-like, and great for using in lower-traffic areas like bedrooms. This natural basket weave jute rug would be great in a coastal room.

Choose coastal artwork that vibes with you

Whether you love seascapes framed in gold or an abstract modern piece that suggests the sea, hang art you adore. This can be be anything: photos of your kids catching their first fish, a honeymoon portrait taken at sunset. Of course, you can go the beachy boho route, too, with a sea glass windchime at the window–or a wall hanging like this from Coastal Whims.

Billowy, beautiful window treatments

There’s just something about a set of white sheer curtains that best captures the sensation of ocean breezes, isn’t there? Light-filtering sheer cotton curtains are beautiful without being pretentious, which makes them exactly right for casual coastal style. Pair them with a bamboo shade or woven wood blinds for added privacy, warmth, and texture.
