Here are some ideas for farmhouse nautical bedroom decor. I love these beach bedroom accessories. What an easy and quick way to bring some coastal decor to the bedroom and play with fun nautical bedroom ideas.
I was googling some decor-related stuff the other day and as I was scrolling through the search results and hopping from page to page, something struck me. Why did decorating become so complicated?
Have you ever noticed the ‘people also ask’ sections in Google search? It was chock-full of questions like “how to get the XYZ look?”, “how do I decorate my bedroom in a something-something style?”, “what are the right colors to use for whatever design style”. It made me a bit sad.
Decorating your house should be easy and fun, it shouldn’t matter what the right colors are, or what accessories you can or cannot use. I hate following rules, and I don’t like restrictions, especially when it comes to decorating my own home.
So let me show you how my home gets decorated, and where my design decisions come from. Or in other words: take a look inside my brain while I am reshuffling the stuff in my home.
Hello sweets, welcome to a sneak peek into my bedroom. I added a bit of coastal bedroom decor in aqua with blue hydrangeas. It wasn’t planned or anything it just happened that way and then one thing led to another…
The other day I was determined to buy myself a nice bunch of flowers for the home. I was feeling the late-winter blues and I needed a bit of cheering up. Sadly the selection at the flower shop was just as dreary and dull as the weather. Nothing spoke to me. Except for this flowering hydrangea bush in bright blue.
So I did what I never do, but will do much more often….
I bought the bush and at home cut off all the flowers. It almost felt like a crime. But I saved the bush for planting in the garden later and I turned the flowers into a little bouquet. And then what…
My house was messy, and I couldn’t find a nice place for my little bouquet of blue hydrangea flowers. So I literally walked around with that vase looking for the proper spot. When I ended up in my bedroom. They looked nice on the nightstand.
Of course, then things started to happen…..
…. and the conversation in my head went ……
Hmm, that vase looks nice there, but it really needs a little extra to stand out more, let’s go to the garage and look for some more props. That vintage mason jar might work, it will form a nice backdrop for the flowers in the blue vase.

It would be nice to use a bit more of that blue glass. Don’t I have a fishing float in that color? let’s hunt it down.
But that glass float needs to hang, where can I hang it from? Let’s move the door upstairs.
But I hate the hook on that door let’s replace it, where is the screwdriver?
Hmm, maybe this is the moment to get rid of that nuisance of the missing knob on the nightstand, where did I put those glass knobs and where is the drill?

Now that I am here, it is time to change the bedding. And didn’t I have some aqua pillow cases somewhere? Let’s go hunt them down…..
The space above the bed looks a bit empty. Hmm, what can I hang there? Something pretty and round and fluffy to soften the look would be nice. What about my DIY juju hat? Yeah, that works very well.
Two hours later I had a nice little vignette and was very pleased with my new coastal bedroom decor in aqua. Flowers on the nightstand always feel like such an indulgent little luxury. I love it.
Do you put flowers on your nightstand? And does a new bouquet of flowers ever result in a two-hour decorating session for you?
