How To Create A Gorgeous Nautical SettingInterior Design & Decor
3 minutes read
If you want something strong, nautical is the way to do it. The trend has been picking up, and it's bold enough to stand out without much effort. So if you're looking for a loud theme and are up for the challenge, here are a few tips to help you along your nautical home journey!
We all know blue should take up a majority of a nautical themed space, but throw in some white and bright red along the way. They'll create a beautiful contrast which stays true to the theme, and any usage of red immediately prevents the place from looking too dull.
To add an even stronger nautical sense, add in a range of wooden furniture as well. Or, if it's possible, create a false ceiling made out of wood. This way, your room will look as if it mirrors the interior of a ship.
Having furniture decked in anchor patterns is a must, and the easiest kind to purchase would probably be cushion covers. Or, you could even try to find a large wall decal shaped in the form of an anchor, creating a bold statement right in the middle of your room.
Other prints, such as sailboats and a ship's wheel work as well, but ensure not to overwhelm the space with too many prints at any given time. Besides these major nautical patterns, you could try subtler add ons like navy and red stripes.
This is where it starts to get fun. There are no limits when it comes to shopping for nautical themed furniture, and even if you decide to purchase something as literal as a bunch of seashells it ultimately works.
Going on a furniture hunt for an outrageously cool nautical themed home might require a bit more time, but it's time worth spending if you're planning on going all out in creating a home which truly brings out the theme.
4. Avoid Overwhelming
We know we've been telling you to add anything and everything that expresses the theme, but do note that having unrelated elements won't end up spoiling your setting either. Include some normalcy into the space, especially if you're starting to feel like the bold theme is overwhelming you.
For starters, you could try adding in a few plants; the green goes with your nautical colour scheme and creates a break from all the blue. Or, perhaps go all out in common spaces, but keep it simpler when decorating the bedrooms.
