How to create a sea and ocean decor?
Decorating the baby's room in a marine style cannot be improvised! If you're here, you're craving more than a wobbly picture of beach camping and old seashells from your childhood.
So how to create an atmosphere, a marine atmosphere in which baby will grow? Before diving into our list of creative ideas, here are some guidelines to keep in mind:
The color palette for a seaside decor
Start by choosing a color palette that evokes the sea and the ocean. The harmony of colors is fundamental in decoration.
- Sky blue and turquoise blue are cheerful hues reminiscent of tropical waters. It's perfect for a wall or some big furniture like the crib or wardrobe.
- The white evokes the foam of the waves and the clouds floating in the sky. As it is a neutral color, it can be used as desired for ceilings, walls, or woodwork for example.
- Beige recalls the warmth of sand. It is the ideal color for rugs or accessories for a marine decor, such as storage baskets or some small furniture.
- The soft gray is reminiscent of the pebbles on the beach. It is a color that goes very well with the previous ones and allows you to vary the palette.
When decorating a nursery, it's important to balance bright colors and soft colors to create a space that is both stimulating and calming. Too many bright colors can be energizing, while too many muted colors can lack visual stimulation.
Marine motifs, of course!
The sea and ocean theme has the advantage of offering a multitude of patterns suitable for decorating a baby's room.
Playing with the patterns in the decoration stimulates baby's sensory development. Starfish, shells, fish, boats, crabs , octopuses, corals, buoys, sails, waves, seagulls, even mermaids, treasures and pirates : all this adds a playful and harmonious touch to the room.
These patterns can be used on walls (wallpaper), curtains, sheets, carpets, cushions, but also on essential or decorative objects such as lamps, photo frames, etc.
The different materials and textures used to decorate the nursery can also enhance the mood.
To create an authentic marine vibe, use a variety of natural materials that evoke the coastline such as fishing nets, driftwood, rattan, or jute rope.
However, avoid overloading the decoration too much , the goal being to create a stimulating but also soothing space for baby.
For furniture, wood is ideal . Natural wood or white wood will imitate driftwood.

You can also opt for wall stickers with sea creatures to introduce baby to the wonders of the seabed.
Soft light like at the beach
Finally, light plays an important role in creating the soothing atmosphere of a sea and ocean baby room.
Opt for soft, dim lamps that mimic sunlight reflecting off water. A night light in the shape of a starfish or a shell can nicely complete the decor.
