5 Calming Tropical Bedrooms from Pinterest

Dream of blue skies and big waves and be inspired to transform your own haven


To be able to enjoy a good night's sleep, we invest in a sturdy bed, clean sheets, and fluffy pillows. Others prefer to have scented candles and a few accessories as well, just to complete the serene vibe that's important in any bedroom.

If you are thinking of a specific style or theme that you can have in the bedroom, you may want to consider going tropical. It highlights soothing colors and must-have pieces that remind you of clear blue skies, lush landscapes, and tranquil waves. Looking for design inspiration? Here are five lovely rooms that can serve as your design pegs:

Wooden and woven pieces can add a warm touch to your personal space. Consider having baskets for your belongings like magazines, shoes, and extra sheets. If you have an extra corner to work with, you can also have a side table where you can keep your gadgets and essentials.

Pair these wooden pieces with sheer white curtains, neutral-colored sheets, and rustic decor pieces for a resort-like vibe.

Don't limit yourself! Feel free to experiment with colors aside from neutral options. Create a beach house vibe by painting your side table with a bright green hue. You may also choose printed pillows with cool designs like shells, starfishes, and more.

A plain white room can still have a feel of the tropics with a few selected pieces. A colorful artwork can serve as the perfect wall accent. Liven up your bed with colorful pillows, throws, and sheets.

Don't shy away from adding potted plants—you can even place a big pot in one corner or by your side table.

Unexpected touches can make a bedroom more special and personal. Experiment with your headboard! You can create a DIY piece and wrap it in pretty fabrics with the colors of Summer or tropical prints. If you really want something unique, you can ask your carpenter if he can help you craft a bamboo headboard—similar to the one in the photo.

While white serves as the ideal canvas, it's also refreshing to see aqua-colored walls. Pair it with light-colored sheets, sea and nature-inspired accessories, and plants! A fresh coat of paint can create an impact in any space—you will be immediately transported to your favorite getaway, the moment you step into your room.
