One of the advantages of a plain brown cover is being able to update the appearance of the room later without having to buy new bedding. Incorporate the rest of the room with colors and details that will visually transport you to your favorite beach every time you enter your bedroom. Paint the walls light blue, aqua, cream or sea foam. The light colors provide a soft bottom for the brown quilt while creating a space impregnated with colors reminiscent of the ocean.
Choose furniture that works with an ocean theme and stands out from the brown cover. Dress up the brown quilt with lighter and brighter cushions, a rug and curtains. Stack coral, sea foam or aqua pillows on the bed and add a game shot on the foot of the bed. A lighter carpet along the sides or feet of the bed in the same colors is another option. Blue and brown striped curtains and blinds work with the ocean theme and bring together the other colors.

White sheets and a turquoise blue or pale blue and quilt work with this look. Hang shell frames, framed shell mirrors or ocean images on the walls. Use frames in the same shade of brown or install floating brown shelves to hold clear vases or jars filled with sand and shells. Accessorize the room with shells, plants, candles or ocean photographs. Models of miniature boats inside bottles, wood with your name, or novelty palm tree knobs on your dresser are ideas, depending on the appearance of the room.
