How to decorate a bedroom in the style of a beach house?

Hampton style.

The name of the style comes from the towns of East Hampton and Southampton on Long Island – favorite places to rest rich Manhattan residents who even during the holidays did not want to give up the luxury they got used to. However, they realized that seaside villas looking like New York apartments would be in conflict with the beach climate of the area.


What is Hampton style

Style combine the classic elements of the decor with furniture and trinkets of rustic and colonial origin. The effect is amazing – the elegant interiors became cozy and unpretentious. This decided about the popularity of the Hampton style, first in American cities and later also in European cities. His world-wide career was accelerated by the film “Better late than later” in 2003, with Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson. The action takes place, inter alia, in the house of the heroine arranged in this style.


Features typical for the Hampton style

Combining styles. Next to French chairs and armchairs and tables or cupboards typical of Victorian England put up comfortable contemporary couches. There are also colonial tables, baskets and trinkets wicker from rural craftsmen.

Items looking used and old. Items of equipment do not have to be respectable antiques. It is enough artificially aged, made, for example, of bleached wood, unevenly glazed ceramics, and fabrics dyed in such a way that they look like lightly washed.

Colors inspired by nature. Colors of sand, various shades of blues, grays (from light gray to falling into black) are supposed to evoke associations with the coastal landscape.

Accessories – Vegetable and marine decorations. They can be potted flowers, nature photographs or pictures, shells, starfish etc. taken from the sea.

How to decorate bedroom with navy blue

A navy blue bedroom can be a refined and elegant space with a more sumptuous softness than other dark shades. Navy blue does not have to mean the nautical style. Navy blue contrasts greatly with white or gray. This second combination is less obvious and very elegant.
The blue wall and accessories are bold and can be a way out to many styles: modern, oriental, minimalist.
The stylization shown in the picture has a touch of the Orient. The headboard of the bed looks like made of lace. It contrasts well with the navy blue wall of the bedroom.

Navy blue is a strong color but relaxing at the same time. The blue bedroom will work positively and soothingly. Make it easier to calm down before bedtime. Just paint one wall for this color. The rest of the room can be in neutral shades of gray or cream white. The grenade beautifully contrasts every natural shade of a wooden floor.

If navy blue walls seem too drastic, start with navy accesories: navy pillows and a navy throw; a textured navy patterned rug overlaid on a more neutral scheme is an easy way to introduce the colour while making the room feel luxurious.
