A dynamic seaside theme is great fun for a playroom or bedroom for kids of any age. Try using bold reds, blues and yellows for a bright space that is gender-neutral.

You can easily find a wide variety of seaside-themed accessories to decorate walls, window and floors. Here are some ideas from our playroom design:

Lighthouse
We were bold and painted the lighthouse directly onto the wall. You could use acrylic paint or sample pots of regular wall paint. If it's not an option to paint directly on the wall - for example if you're renting or want it to be a short term decoration, you could try painting a lighthouse onto a long piece of butcher's paper (buy a roll cheaply in the craft section in IKEA) and attach this to the wall instead with sticky fixers.
We used masking tape to create the outline of the lighthouse and the stripes onto the wall. You can then paint up to the edge of the masking tape and when you remove it you have a lovely neat straight edge. We painted the white sections first and when they were dry put new masking tape on the white stripes before painting the red. We added windows with black paint (again using masking tape to create a rectangles to paint within). We added the lookout railings using a black marker pen. We used masking tape to make a yellow wedge for the light shining across the room to the window.

Blinds
We added bright blue roller blinds to the windows. We found some from Web Blinds online with a wavy edge which look a little like sea waves.

Lighting
Flying seagull ceiling lightshades add some extra fun.

Rugs
We added a swirling sea rug under the seagulls and a few extra small blue IKEA round mats.

Puffin
We painted a puffin directly onto the wall above the window ledge.
