You spend every night dreaming of your next beach holiday abroad? Why not bring your paradise home with some beach-infused bedroom décor? A beach theme could help to make your bedroom more of a sanctuary and help you to sleep better at night. Here are several ways to introduce this theme to your room.
Add exotic plants
Many tropical plants thrive well in low light and humid conditions making them excellent for indoors. Palm trees are the ultimate beach resort plant for transporting you to your dream location – you can buy small potted palms to grow indoors and they are very easy to maintain. Peace lilies and orchids are two other popular tropical plants that could be great on a bedside cabinet – they are less easy to look after. Ferns are also good indoor plants, although they do require more light, so place them by a window. Plants are great to grow in your bedroom as they provide your brain with a fresh source of oxygen helping you to get to sleep.
Use stones and shells as ornaments
Stones and shells are great reminders of the beach that you can use for ornamental purposes. You can buy shells and stone online – however, many people may prefer to collect them for free on their next visit to the seaside. You can then place these stones and shells around your bedroom. You could hang them from bed posts, put them in a small wicker bowl or fill the base of a plant pot with them. Also consider novelty items such as conches and fossils.
Hang up holiday souvenirs
Remind yourself of the holidays you’ve been on with souvenirs from your travels. You could have a wall dedicated to your adventures abroad with various items hanging from it. This could include a collage of photographs and postcards from past holidays. By surrounding yourself with memories of good times, your bedroom will feel like a happier place.
Opt for wooden furniture
Wooden furniture has a rustic feel that’s perfect for reinforcing that beach theme. Several companies specialise in wooden resort furniture. Some of this is even given a beach-washed appearance to make it look like it’s come straight from the seaside.
Bamboo is a wood worth considering – bamboo curtains or shutters could be a great addition to your beach-themed room. Wicker designs are also great for creating that beach look. Consider baskets for keeping make-up in and hand-woven chests for shoes and accessories. You can even buy hand-woven bed frames.
Introduce seaside aromas
On top of the sights of the beach, you can also bring the smells of the beach to your home. There are many ocean scents available for oil diffusers and air fresheners that you could try out. There are also scented candles available on the market centred around beach smells such as eucalyptus, cardamom and coconuts. Certain tropical plants may also produce smells. Embracing these aromas won’t just help with your beach theme, it could help you sleep more easily.
