If you live in Sarasota, you are likely a beach lover. The white sand beaches of Siesta Key and other area beaches are world-renowned – and because of that, hundreds of thousands of people visit our area every year. If you own a home and want to create a beach-inspired guest room or Airbnb, here are some ways to create the perfect tropical oasis.
Beach-Themed Paint Colors
Colors play an integral role in interior design, setting the atmosphere of the space. Four colors intuitively invoke the feeling of the beach – blue, green, white, and sandy brown! This palette is the essence of the beachy vibe and will immediately infuse the desired room with a soothing, tropical aura.
Sunsets are also an iconic part of living on the Gulf Coast, so don’t be afraid to add a few splashes of vibrant red, yellow, or orange. You can achieve this by adding bright throw pillows or artwork on the wall. Fresh flowers in those same tones will bring in the warmth of the tropics, and palm frond-evoking greenery is always a great touch.
Bedroom Decor For Ocean Lovers
You can easily simulate an underwater reef or seaside beachscape with the right wallpaper or mural covering an entire wall. If you go with such a dramatic touch, work with lighter tones for the rest of the space. Large windows that provide lots of sunlight will allow your visitors to enjoy their experience in the sunshine state to its fullest.
White wood paneling is another popular decor choice for those looking for a seaside ambiance, and wicker, natural wood and earth-tone accents complete the look. Browse local farmer’s markets and art fairs for driftwood accent pieces and furniture. If you are looking for a more subtle homage than traditional shells, look for nautical rope or floating glass buoys for decoration.
Lighting options that accent beach-themed bedrooms include rope pendant lights, table lamps, or fixtures with motifs such as ship wheels or anchors.
Bedroom Furniture For a Beach-Themed Space
The best choice for furniture for a beach-themed bedroom includes light-colored or weathered wood pieces, bamboo or rattan furniture, and textured finishes.
A great option to provide seating without cluttering the room is hanging hammock chairs. The rope fits in beautifully with the aesthetic, and the casual, swinging chair provides the carefree feel of a tropical vacation without sacrificing comfort.
Murphy beds are perfect for beach-themed guest rooms or rooms for rent. They come in a wide variety of finishes, and side piers can be backlit to showcase beautiful shells or driftwood sculptures. Murphy beds are perfect for guest rooms because they can be closed during the day to provide ample living space and room to move around.
We recommend looking into table or bookcase beds for multi-functionality and models such as Farm House or Looking Glass in white weathered oak to sohre up your desired aesthetic. Cobalt finishes are also beautiful and will fit right into the Gulf of Mexico feel you are creating.
