What's not to like about a coastal bedroom? Waking up would fill you with a sense of tranquility and mystique generally only reserved for the shores of a calm ocean. But with the surplus of beachy decorations out there, it's so easy to overdo this look. Where to even begin?

For starters, resist the urge to cover every surface—the nightstand, the windows, the floors—with shells and fishnets and anchors. The key to a soothing space is to reserve more thematic designs for your bed. Coastal bedding, as the crowning glory of your bedroom, will convey your seaside style at a mere glance, so you're free to play with more subtle elements for all surrounding decor.

One way to approach this is to let beach bedding serve as the mainstay of an all-white bedroom. To keep from overwhelming the space, let shells thrive on the main pattern of your bed ensemble. Then, spring for a whitewash headboard or a simple pair of pure white curtains, preferably sheer to let light in and make the space feel less cold.

If you've got your heart set on a piece of seashell wall art, however, don't fret! You can also pick bed linens with a more simple motif that still conjure marine locations—like stripes, for example, which may call to mind the awning on a saltwater taffy shop on the boardwalk. You could also try for something more abstract, like the pieced wave designs of an oversized lightweight bedspread.

What if you're going for a solid white comforter to keep up a minimalist look? You'll still want to add color here and there to make the room feel less stark and provide some personality. Find individual pillows or even snag some shams from our collections of beach comforters and quilts. Go for a pattern that already incorporates white, such as a starfish pillow or one that reads "Let the Sea Set You Free." You could even place a white accent chair in the corner near a window and top the cushion with a rectangle pillow in a lovely blue-gray.

But perhaps you really need to punch up your surroundings; white can get monotonous, after all, if there's nothing to help balance it out. So, wrap up in colorful beach quilts night-after-night, and bring splashy hues like lime green, coral, or yellow into your color scheme. You could work little hints of these shades into other decorations, like a canvas scene hanging over your headboard. If you're worried about going overboard with color, pair coastal quilts with crisp white sheets to dial it all back.

Finally, if you're searching for something a bit more substantial, navigate your way to a nautical comforter. These bed coverings have a plump inner layer of fiber fill to keep you warm on chilly evenings off the waterfront. All types of coastal bedding come in an assortment of sizes, from twin to California king, so you should have no problem finding just the right fit for your bed and your discerning decorator's eye!
