You don't have to have a beachside dwelling to enjoy a Coastal style nursery! There are a few ways you can achieve a Coastal style nursery for your bundle of joy. This style can be thematic, with adorable sea animal prints, nautical touches, and anchors, or can just be a hint of coastal with soothing blues, washed woods, and the airy feeling of a Coastal style space. If you crave a light and breezy nursery that has a serene color palette, a Coastal nursery can be a beautiful solution.
The King of Sweden, Gustav III, in the late eighteenth century gave his name to a style of furniture borrowed from the French but simplified with a light-colored paint and more rustic lines. Today we interpret this style in this nursery furniture with pale grey paint and ever so slightly French styling. The result is a charming mix of sophistication and rusticity that is very pleasing!
A classic color combination, teal, and coral make the perfect coastal mix for this seaside nursery. The cool and warm tones contrast beautifully to give us a charming palette. We've chosen deeper shades of the colors for this room, but you could use pastel hues of the same colors for a lighter touch.
The bright multi-colors of this nursery are probably not the first choice for a coastal style, but look how beautifully they work! The bright shades of the floral rug speak of seaside patches of wildflowers. And the tufted pouf reinforces the primary shade of violet in the room. Sweet perfection.
Emphasis your nursery theme through accessories. Here we incorporated wall art related to the ocean to provide a coastal feel enhanced by subtle bright colors like teal and yellow. The lighting plays an important role, helping make his nursery a baby sanctuary.
One great element of a seaside vibe is the use of woven woods and grasses. Here the chair and rocking horse bring that element to life in the nursery. These natural materials lend a casual but important bit of style to our nursery space.
In our vignette of the changing table/dresser more woven pieces in the form of baskets continue the theme of the seaside. Combined with a stuffed animal this makes a perfect vignette for the nursery. It has a definite feeling of the coast, and of a new little one arriving on the scene!
Blue is probably the first color we think of for a coastal vibe. Here the blue-teal with touches of coral is very much the color of the ocean on a bright day at the beach with overhanging palms. The teal walls and accents let the Gustavian style nursery furniture sing, too, with a strong contrast that is cheerful and fun.
