Lighthouse Themed Bedrooms

Lighthouses are a popular theme for bedroom decor. Whether you are looking for a major redecorating for your master bedroom or you want to add a touch of peace and relaxation to a guest bedroom, a lighthouse theme will be a great choice.

To start your lighthouse bedroom, pick one item that you love and build your theme around that. You may pick a great lighthouse quilt like the one of Cape Hatteras that you find on this page, or perhaps you want to base your theme around a special piece of wall art. I show several choices of lighthouse wall art on this page. Once you have picked your center piece item then you choose accessories to match or coordinate with that item.

On this page I have chosen three of my favorite lighthouses that I have photographed and chosen bedroom decor to go with those lighthouse.

Split Rock Lighthouse

Split Rock Lighthouse Print

Split Rock Lighthouse is found on the shores of Lake Superior in northern Minnesota. In the fall of 2012 we took a trip up to Minnesota to photograph lighthouses. I had heard that Split Rock was one of the most photographed lighthouse in the USA so I was anxious to see if I could capture it in a different shot than every other photographer. I photographed the lighthouse both in the evening and then again the next morning and I photographed it from several different sights. Prints of this lighthouse would be a great way to start you lighthouse bedroom decorating.

Nightlight Accessory

I would love to be able to see Split Rock in all seasons. In this photo the artist captured the lighthouse in very early spring with some snow still up by the lighthouse.

A Split Rock night light will be a perfect addition to your lighthouse bedroom.

Another way to decorate your lighthouse bedroom is to start with a beautiful quilt and build around it. This Cape Hatteras Quilt would make a great design to use in your bedroom decorating. It comes with a variety of other accessories too.

Shown here are a few of the accessories available to match your Cape Hatteras quilt too.

Cape Hatteras Wall Art

Cape Hatteras is one of several lighthouses that are located in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Each of the lighthouses is painted differently to help guide the ships to the right locations along the coast. I think an Outer Banks bedroom would be great. You could feature several of the OB lighthouses in your bedroom décor.

Cape Hatteras is a classic style lighthouse that is often called America's lighthouse. You will see it pictured in lots of different lighthouse decorations. The lighthouse was originally located right on the beach but several years ago it was moved inland as the beach was eroding.

This mirror looks as if you are looking through an open window. It would make an interesting piece of wall art for your lighthouse bedroom.

Bodie Island is located in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. In the intro section of this page is a photograph I took of the lighthouse. A framed print would make a great focal point for your bedroom decor.

      There is something really charming about lighthouses. All winter long, in our rental in Florida, I snuggled up with a lighthouse blanket/throw that the landlords have on one of their chairs. :)
