Blue striped bedding in kids beach theme room

Stripes are an ideal beginning to beachy kids’ room decor, especially in varying shades of blue mixed with white. Why? Two reasons—blue represents both sea and sky, and white is the hallmark of coastal interiors.

Coastal interiors often blur the line between indoors and outdoors which is part of the magic in beach theme rooms. You always feel the water is right there. White amplifies the light, allowing sunshine to expand and fill the space.

Using varying shades of a single color (blue in this case) is the key to staying consistent with your design and if you haven’t already noticed, beachcomber décor is laden with blue.

Stripes are always a hit with kids, knowing no gender nor age boundaries plus, using stripes adds a little liveliness to beach-chic design.

Stripes can be used in so many areas of the room……
