Coastal Kids Room

You don’t need to live by the sea to achieve a cute coastal kids room. When I say coastal I suppose I really mean relaxed and inspired by nature. There are no real rules; however, I would base the colors on nature and make sure to include some white to keep the space fresh. Because kids love multiple shapes, colors, patterns and textures, make sure you know to balance the sensory overload. This room does it beautifully.

Wide, almost nautical curtains balance smaller details of a colorful area rug, while a smaller pattern found in decorative accent pillows add interest against solid walls painted the color of a coastal sky. I love the juxtaposition between the over-the-top chandelier with the pop of solid chartreuse green in the table lamps. It’s the kind of room that will keep active kids interested and save you from having to redecorate when they get bored. The entire space is grounded with a neutral sandy colored carpet that harkens back to a day sur la playa.

White Chandeliers

This white carriage chandelier is similar to the one in the room and is fresh coastal feeling because it’s painted out in white.

Green Ceramic Table Lamps

Just like in the room above, this green ceramic table lamp would be really cute against pale blue. I also love that the shades have a natural rattan, textured look versus the more standard basic white. A deeper colored shade will cast a warmer glow.

Mirrored Chests

Whether it stores toys for younger kids or books and computer equipment for teens, this white mirror circle fretwork chest is a cheerful addition to the coastal kids room.
