Modern and Moody Coastal Bedroom

The perfect modern and moody coastal bedroom!

Ever since coming back from the beach my daughter has been all about seashells and coral.  She even traded in her arcade tickets for a white coral candle holder that she was so excited to put in her room.   I knew as soon as it was time to put her room back together that she would want to decorate with beachy and coastal decor.  

If you know me, coastal and beachy aren't really terms I would use to describe my style, but I was all about giving her room a tasteful update that incorporated both coastal and moody modern elements.

Lucky for me, Walmart has some great coastal decor options that are both affordable and perfect for achieving a stylish coastal vibe.  They also offer free shipping on orders over $35 (and FREE returns!), which is awesome for someone like me who loves shopping online. 

You know I crave contrast, so painting over the coral wall with Iron Ore was the first step in adding a bit of moody drama and contrast to her room.  It was also the perfect backdrop for the bright white decor I planned to bring into the rest of the space.

The large natural jute tote from Walmart brings in texture and natural elements for the perfect coastal vibe.  It's also super versatile and can be used as a planter or a place to stash her stuffed animals or extra blankets.

She really wanted a small rug for her space and the Safavieh Adirondeck Lecia Geometic Rug was the perfect compromise.  It was small enough for my daughter's liking (there are multiple sizes available) and had the perfect amount of texture for me.

Adding a few Rosette Plush decorative throw pillows to her bed brought in more texture, yet still kept the space light and bright.

Of course, I had to bring in some sort of coastal artwork and this set of blue coral artwork from Walmart was the perfect addition.

Incorporating beachy and coastal decor into a space doesn't have to be about decorating with seashells and beach signs.  Adding texture (in particular jute, sisal or seagrass), keeping the space light and bright and adding tasteful coastal or beach artwork can give you the perfect modern coastal look. 

Her room now offers plenty of texture and contrast that I love and beautiful subtle coastal elements that she enjoys.  It's the perfect compromise for both our styles!
