It is white and blue that traditionally ushers in the magic of sun, sand and surf into your bedroom. But go down a different route this summer and replace the white in that equation with far more exciting shades of gray. Apart from giving your nautical or coastal style bedroom a fresh, new look, replacing white with gray gives you greater decorating freedom and a chance to try out newer shades of blue. In fact, you can fill the backdrop with light gray and maybe even a hint of white and use pops of teal, turquoise or periwinkle for greater visual impact. From bedding and drapes to a complete bedroom furniture set in blue, a gray background lets you switch between hues with ease.
Darker shades of gray can also be used in small bedrooms to create a dashing and more masculine space. Once you go down this route, ensure that the rest of the room remains as uncluttered and neutral as possible with sparingly used blue accents. In the bedroom, everything from the pillows and bed sheets to drapes and vases can be used to add color and with changing trends you can even move away from blue and adopt a completely different color scheme.
Do not be afraid to combine a third color with gray and blue in the bedroom. This need not necessarily be white as both blue and gray can create a neutral and inviting setting which allows other bold hues to shine through. A touch of red or orange looks great in the coastal or nautical bedroom while a pop of fuchsia or pink can bring dazzle to the girls‘ bedroom. Yellow is a great choice in bedrooms with light shades of gray and blue as it ushers in sun-kissed charm while brown can give the space a more masculine finish.
