A neutral color like white makes an excellent choice for beach wall paint, fabrics or window treatments in the beach bedroom decor. White is light and reflects a lot of light, keeping the open, airy feeling in the room. Bright white creates a crisp, cool atmosphere. Of whites who look aged or sun bleach add a little more warmth to the room. Use white as a wall paint, window treatment or bedding.
Tan is an excellent neutral to incorporate into any room, as it goes with all other colors. In a beach themed bedroom, it is reminiscent of sand, reeds, dried grass, driftwood and other natural materials that can occur on a day at the beach. Tan also helps warm up other cool beach shades like bright white and blues. Use tan for floor coverings, walls and incorporate it into fabric or bedding. You can also add some splashes of tan with natural materials such as wood furniture or woven grass shades.
Probably the most dominant beach color, blue is drawn directly from the sky and sea. No beach themed rooms are complete without any element of blue. Lighter shades such as sky blue, or medium shades such as cerulean and cobalt, work well in a beach theme. If you prefer a more nautical look, add some navy blue. Aquamarine introduces a hint of green. For a bolder color scheme, incorporate the blues into the background, such as in wall paint and carpets. If you prefer neutral as the dominant colors in the room, add some kind of blue here and there with accessories or fabric patterns.
Another cool color is green. One bedroom beach theme can use green or blue-green shade as a dominant color or as an accent color. Shades of blue and green together create an analog color scheme, which is very relaxing for the eye. The shades should be of approximately the same intensity. A single green wall, for example, makes a beautiful accent color with the rest of the room in neutral and blue artwork and accessories will work in harmony with it.
Coral, which is found in coral beds and the spectacular sunset, is created by mixing mainly orange and red or pink, in varying amounts to produce a variety of colors. For a softer look, look for pale shades of pink-orange. Deeper shades can be an intense red-orange. To get a little more neutrality, dark corals are a little more on the tan side. In contrast to blue and green, coral is a warm color. Using coral as a dominant color can give a beach bedroom a more feminine feel.
