The style of bedding you choose says a lot about your decorating style and your personality. Coastal bedding is a popular bedding style that provides a unique decorating statement to your home. Decorative sheets and covers are a popular decorating accent. The covers on the beds in your home usually provide color and a decorating theme to your bedrooms.
Coastal bedding provides the bedrooms of your home with a theme that is reminiscent of life at the shore. Regardless of where you live this theme will help you brighten up a room and provide an ambience that conjures up images of being on the beach. Beach themed bedding can accent your coastal decor and freshen up any room.
The colors and patterns of coastal bedding are reminiscent of life at the beach. The color scheme of coastal decor tends to be blues, whites grey and little splashes of reds. These colors are soothing and relaxing.
Nautical quilts and throws offer a way to get a little warmth without the use of a heavy blanket. These are perfect for sitting out on the porch and watching the waves crash against the beach. If you do not live on the coast then they will provide you with the feeling that you do.
There are many different themes within the coastal decorating theme. Each of these themes provides a unique statement to any bedroom. One of the more popular categories within the coastal theme is the Nantucket theme. This theme is reminiscent of the popular beach resort off the coast of Massachusetts. Nantucket decorating accents often feature shades of light blue with sailing motifs.
Lighthouse sheets and comforters are another popular coastal theme. Assorted images of lighthouses provide an accent to these bedding items. Lighthouses are a form of guiding light and have a sense of security associated with them. These unique structures provide us with a sense of calmness and the peacefulness that is often found in little fishing villages.
Crabs and lobsters are also a common theme among coastal accessories. These ocean crustaceans are symbolic of ocean side living and these items are popular on throws and toss pillows. Along with these little crawling creatures you can find images of seagulls and pelicans. All of these ocean creatures have a way of making you think of the coast.
Another popular coastal theme is sailboats. Bedding and accessories clad in sailboats and associated items such as life preservers and signal flags make a great way to decorate a child’s room. These items provide a calming atmosphere that will conjure up dreams of sailing on the ocean blue. Sheets, comforters, throw pillows and accessories are all available at many home furnishing stores and provide that feeling of being on a sailboat out on a bay.
