Interior designer Jeanne Suzanne Sy shares these 5 decorating tips to help you achieve a similar look at home:

Work with white walls

White walls may seem plain and dull, but when you pair it with relaxing accent pieces, it can make your room look elegant. “For this room, I used water-based paint in Sheen Finish to cover up the concrete and brick walls, so it's stylish and easy to clean,” Jean shares.

Pick relaxing colors and textures

“Go for shades and textures that represent the sea and the sky,” Jean suggests. Based on the psychology of color, blue is suitable for the bedroom because it provides a cool and calming effect that can help you relax.

Use throw pillows as accents

Indulge in a good night’s sleep by using comfy pillows as accents in your room. For this bedroom, Jean opted for printed throw pillows in the same shade, but have different prints.

Provide ample natural lighting

Natural light can lend a serene vibe to your space while helping you keep electricity costs low. According to Jean, it helps distribute light while creating a relaxing atmosphere. If possible, keep the windows open to allow the breeze to flow through.

RL Tip: Add a refreshing touch to the space by placing a couple of potted plants or succulents by the windowsill.

Add beach-inspired decor pieces

Completing this bedroom are quirky paperweight decor items that Jean selected from Crate and Barrel's newest collection. To create a cohesive look, don't forget to add in decor and accessories that remind you of the beach. Consider having shells and starfishes as accents.
