Do you find yourself utterly landlocked, wishing for sea foam under your toes? Or are you an avid beachcomber, filling your home with treasures washed up on the nearby shore? Whether you're near or far from the briny deep, you can always submerge yourself in coastal bedding! When choosing your beach-themed bedding, it's important to decide which kind will best suit your needs. Each coastal bed covering creates its own sense of movement. A beachy bedspread will lap at your bedroom floor for a fluid and timeless look. Meanwhile, the decorative corners on a comforter evoke the gentle, swelling motion of the sea. Quilted with wavy or shell-patterned designs, coverlets and quilts seem to ripple across the mattress. From a more practical standpoint, you might also want to consider the weight of your bed covering. For example, coverlets are airy and lightweight, well-suited for your Florida beach house. But if you're decorating a seaside cottage in New England, a comforter will help you weather those long winters (assuming you're not a snow bird!) Finally, examine your fascination with the ocean and find out what draws you. Is it shards of sea glass and pastel shells sparkling in the sun? Seashell bedding include the likes of starfish, nautilus shells, sand dollars and many more coastal elements. Or perhaps you're interested in beautiful breakers and surf culture? In that case, beach-themed bedding will often feature palm trees, surfboards and surf wagons. But maybe you simply enjoy the rhythm of the waves and the whisper of sand underfoot. Try for more simple designs like coastal stripes or wavy, horizontal bands that mimic rolling waves. Whether you're 800 miles or a few steps away, you can live amongst the serene colors and soothing sights of the sea. Start with coastal bedding that echoes the very ocean itself.
