A bedroom with a beach design should include themed bedding, but it can be a little difficult to find. Although I found a lovely bedspread that matched the color scheme, I had a tough time locating the ideal beach themed pillow shams. When I cannot find the perfect bedding, I come up with ways to create it. I searched high and low for unique beach themed items for my client’s daughter’s bed, and the results were amazing. The bed became the mid range focal point of the room, and she was very pleased with the design of her beautiful bed.
Make the Perfect Themed Pillow Shams with Beach Towels
When decorating a beach themed bedroom, consider selecting a comforter or bed spread in a solid color. Instead of using the matching accessories included in the bedding set, opt for something with a pattern. Pillow coverings provide a stylish way to add texture and patterns to the design of the bedding, and they are easy to make.
After I could not find the ideal pillow shams for my client’s daughter’s beach themed bedding, I created them using beach towels. We shopped online for ultra plush towels that would fit her queen size pillows, and we came up with a blue and green tropical design. My client purchased four of the same towels, and I stitched the edges together using my sewing machine. I turned beach towels into pillow shams with very little effort, and they looked great against the ocean blue bedspread.
Search for Seashell Throw Pillows
My client’s daughter’s bed was not complete. I love designing beds that are rich and lavish in appearance. I add several throw pillows. I searched for seashell throw pillows to add to the beach themed bedding, and I was surprised by the many options. I sent my client several beautiful throw pillows to consider. I did not want the colors in the beach themed pillow shams to clash with the hues in the seashell throw pillows. I found several realistic designs. She chose two conch shell pillows to top the bedding, but I thought that it needed something more.
Add Beautiful Seaweed Throw Pillows
Beach themed bedding does not have to be limited to shells. When completing my client’s daughter’s bedding ensemble, I also added two beautiful throw pillows that were embellished with green and blue seaweed. Many types of seaweed are beautiful works of underwater art, and these were stunning. With the blue and green handmade beach towel shams and the seashell and seaweed throw pillows, it was one of my favorite designs.
