Your Jacque Cousteau wanna-be would trade his fish tank to sleep under-the-sea, even for just one night, so it’s not too far off to say he’d dive right in to one of these underwater retreats. We love the soothing sea color schemes, the friendly fish folk, and all the tiny touches (sunken pirate ship anyone?) that make for an excellent aquatic adventure. Flip through to be inspired by seven amazing ocean-themed rooms—we think you’ll be on our wavelength.

Tidal Wave Reading Nook

This tidal wave reading nook makes a huge splash. The customized wood panels set off the seaweed green curtains, and the hand-painted mural completes the look. Designed by Seldom Interiors, makes us want to grab a book and set sail!
