If you’re eager to put a mystical spin on your decor, look no further than this selection of mermaid bedroom ideas. Mermaids are an excellent way to make your interior design unique and playful. Aside from being beautiful sea creatures, they also evoke plenty of other details from the ocean world. Thanks to the versatility of the theme, many different styles can be pursued.
For example, I love incorporating other sea creatures and accessories into a mermaid bedroom. Whether you decorate your walls with mermaid decor, use the tail as inspiration for furniture, or choose images to accessorize your bedroom, there are plenty of ideas to pick from.
Mermaid Bedroom Styles
Pink and Girlie
For the ultimate girlie look, choose an all-pink style for your furniture and linen. In the picture above, the mermaids take over the wall, highlighting the bed and adorning the room. If you look carefully you’ll notice the aqua lamps match their tails, a striking contrast to the pink decor. For anyone who is a girlie girl at heart, choosing a pink mermaid bedroom is one of the best ideas.
Under the Sea
Let’s keep in mind that mermaids live under the sea, so it’s perfectly fitting to design your bedroom as though you too were living under the sea. Walls painted to mimic water, and plenty of sea life decorating the space makes it easy to forget you live on land. The bedroom pictured incorporates a scene from arguably the most famous little mermaid, Disney’s Ariel.
Mermaid bedrooms aren’t just for kids. This beautiful wallpaper showcases the allure and charm of these sea creatures in all of their elegance. Pastel colors, white, and gold accents make this design particularly chic. For a classy take, think of choosing wallpaper or a duvet with a mermaid pattern and pairing it with soft colors.

If you’re looking for simpler ideas that can easily be installed and swapped, create your own mermaid art gallery. Choose your favorite images, frame them, and hang them around your bedroom.

This is a great way to show off your love for mermaids without overtaking your entire room design.
