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.
