Mood Board: Coastal Bohemian Bedroom

Maybe the planets are out of alignment. Maybe it's because of the seemingly endless winter we've experienced here. Something is off. I'm considering decorating my bedroom in pink. Because I realize how out of character this is for me, I'm treading carefully. Before slapping a rosy shade of paint on the walls, I decided to make a mood board first. Come check out more of this mood board and the rooms that inspired me after the jump.

I’ve had some rough ideas of how to decorate my new bedroom for some time. Like my previous bedroom,  I want the space to feel breezy and light with natural touches. But this time, I will be decorating with a bohemian style instead of the minimalist, Zen style from before.

Since I will likely paint one accent wall in pink it has to coordinate well with the other walls, which are a creamy, neutral color. I want the room to be infused with some color, but that it be neutral enough so the room doesn’t feel too stimulating. I’m torn between these two shades, which are a cross between a soft coral and rose:

These are some pics I found to serve as inspiration for the decor:

And here is my complete mood board. For info on these products and tutorials, select the links in the caption.

I will be using some items I’ve already created, such as my rope side table, plus some other DIY projects like the jewelry storage in #15 and the macramé wall hanging in #9.

The fabrics will be used to make pillowcases and a bedskirt. I’d also like to find a matching batik print. Using sheer curtains over the window will create that breezy, beachy feeling.

To further create the coastal vibe, I will use natural materials like rope, wood, and plants. I’m still debating the seashell art in #14—it’s a beautiful piece but I don’t want the room to feel too matchy.

I will also use gold as an accent and to add a touch of glam to the room. The room will have lots of texture but won’t be packed full with decor. With the exception of the painted accent wall and pillows, the room will still be neutral, which also helps keep the space feeling peaceful.

Even if I do end up changing my mind about the pink, this will have been great practice for my future career as a designer. It’s important to challenge our brains by working outside our comfort zones!

Have you ever decorated an adult bedroom with pink? Are you a fan of coastal decor style? Do you like the bohemian decor style? How do you like to get outside your comfort zone?

  1. I like the blush beige, it is not as brown as the first one. I think this will add some warmth plus a brightness that the other one might not accomplish.

    • Thanks! I keep going back & forth on them. I’ll probably get sample pots for each color to test out. I definitely don’t want a shade that will look too brown.

  2. Those curtains are to die for! Everything is so beautiful overall! Also, that last photo from Houzz… Sigh… Gorgeous! Thank you for linking up to Snickerdoodle Sunday!

    I think you’re on to something good here. The pinks you chose aren’t too overwhelming and since you’ll only paint an accent wall I bet it will add just the right amount of color. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

  4. Hi Angela! Love the beachy mood board, especially the wispy white sheers, the golden pendant lamp and the wicker baskets… the choice is eclectic! Can’t wait to see the actual execution… you have had me hooked!

  5. I love it! I love the hammock and the pretty clean white. Very nice theme. Thanks for sharing with us on Snickerdoodle Sunday!
