Moroccan tiles in azure blue, warm brown and ivory are the inspiration for the pattern on Ocean Breezes. Conjuring visions of the ocean, the decidedly nautical colors in this lively print summon the blue sky, the wet sand and the white foam. Its one of those serendipitous prints that will work as prettily in a – for lack of a better word – ‘feminine’ setting as it will handsomely in a man’s bedroom.
We’re featuring our Ocean Breezes duvet today, and suggesting two ways to make up your bed – Simple and Ornate. And at the end of the post we list out exactly what you will need to achieve each look.
Accessorize with beach themed, natural, organic and rustic accessories – think wicker, rattan, rope, coir, jute, sisal and driftwood (You get the drift? No pun intended :-)) – and you will do the print perfect justice!
Sheeting options for Ocean Breezes
These spa quality sheets from Amazon are made of superior fabric that is softer than cotton and will envelop you in a snug embrace. In three summery colors, each will bring a different feel to the space. The smokey blue and chestnut sheets will add more depth while highlighting the brown and blue of the print. The eggshell will lend a fresher, breezier feel, wonderful for summer.
Ocean inspired bedding looks:
A duvet, sheets and pillowcases – for some people that might be enough to dress up a bed, but nothing beats pillow shams when it comes to achieving that perfect look. Shams are the unsung heroes of your bed—they look great, work hard, and keep it interesting when you layer a few of them in varying prints.
Having said that, how many shams you use and what kind, will dictate whether you want a simple look or an ornate look. Sounds confusing? We’re here to help……
Simple and coastal: Pillow shams and an accent pillow
For a simple look we recommend:
Ornate and coastal: Add euro shams, and a boudoir pillow
For an ornate look we recommend:
A few other options…
Just like Moroccan tiles are characterized by warmth, simplicity and timeless beauty, so too is this print which is perfect for any style of home decor. Ocean Breezes will add flair to any design sensibility – shabby chic, Modern minimalism, cottage style, nautical or California coastal!
We hope this has helped you decide on sheeting and sham options for this print.
