Redefining coastal living: A fresh wave of bedroom trends

Coastal Grandmother

Imagine stepping into your bedroom and feeling like you’ve escaped to a tranquil coastal town. Inspired by Nancy Meyers’s films, the Coastal Grandmother style is about creating a cosy, comfortable space that feels like home. Light and airy with layered neutrals reminiscent of Hamptons styling, Costal Grandmother exudes a relaxed yet refined, casual but elevated aesthetic. Like the fashion movement this trend also inspired, at its core are clean lines and a crisp palette that harmonises with traditional beachside elements like seersucker, stripes, and rattan. In translating this cosy look to the bedroom, upholstered bed heads are a must, such as the Bailey bed head in Ebony Stripe and Tilbury in Villano Drizzle Linen. Décor, including oversized light shades and coffee table books, will also add to the aesthetic and mirror the big-screen romantic comedies that influenced the trend.

In styling the bed, start with 50 shades of white, ivory, and cream — as seen with our Louis bedhead. Then, layer in a mix of neutral tones borrowed from nature – think stone, sandy tans, beige and taupe. If you find it hard to resist the allure of colour, subtle shades of watery blue, shell pink, cool grey and sea mist not only take their cues from coastal living but will create a truly refreshing and blissful sleep space.

Building upon the Coastal Grandmother trend, Coastal Cowgirl offers an approachable, accessible blend of beach and country living that’s taking over social media. Searches for Coastal Cowgirl on Google skyrocketed by 7300% between May and June this year alone, positioning it as a defining trend of summer. With a versatility and ability to curate a warm, inviting, and laid-back atmosphere, the look’s popularity has also surged by 2200% on Pinterest and amassed over 110 million TikTok views. With a clever fusion of Californian beachfront and country ranches to create an effortlessly cool aesthetic, natural materials like jute, linen, rattan and leather reminiscent of saddles are key in bringing the trend to life in the bedroom. In the bedhead department, it’s hard to resist our buttery soft, deep-buttoned Alessio in leather trench or Medina in rich camel linen.

A farmhouse-inspired wooden bedside table (like our Lucca) is also essential, while a knitted throw rug and woven baskets will add boho charm. When incorporating prints, oversized gingham and micro checks are perfect to underscore the organic style.

Barbiecore conquered fashion this year, and now it’s infiltrating interior design with a burst of mood-boosting colours and playful prints. But before you go all-in with hot pink walls, for a more subtle take on Barbie’s Dream House, it’s essential to unpack the trend. At its core, this look is all about sweet nostalgia for simpler, sunnier, and more carefree times, with a nod to the 80s and 90s.

Look to the bedrooms of Florida and Palm Springs for inspiration, embracing vibrant hues like pink, turquoise, and coral, along with palm fronds and hibiscus blooms for a sun-kissed vibe. Elevate the ambience with bright cushions, pleated lampshades reminiscent of seashells and tropical artwork with citrus or cocktail motifs. Paradise, found!

Mediterranean Coastal 

Travel made a triumphant return in 2023, and jetsetters are eager to bring a touch of Europe back home. Inspired by the boutique hotels of places like Sorrento, Positano, the Greek Islands, and the French Riviera, the Mediterranean Coastal trend brings historic charm with a coastal twist. Olive green and terracotta set the tone, complemented by Mediterranean-inspired décor like hand-thrown clay pots and textural linen bedding.

To transform your sleep space into a coastal escape with a touch of European flair, we love sunset shades in warm hues of pink, orange and lilac to create a calming atmosphere — as seen styled on our Amanti bed.

To lean into more of a Riviera or island vibe, it’s hard to resist a clean blue and white palette, using the bed head as a bold focal point to build the room around. Or, for more tips on how to harness golden hour in the bedroom, see here.
