As summertime approaches, the lure of the beach is undeniable — just imagining the refreshing feeling of summer sun and the hues of shimmering sea puts me at peace. Planning to inject your interiors with seaside chic and get that sense of calm year round? If you’re considering incorporating some ocean inspired elements into your home, you’re in luck. Nautical home design is a timeless style. With this in mind, get on board with some coastal interior inspirations I’ve picked out, for the perfect maritime vibes.
Go Blue and White
A blue and white color scheme is the staple of any nautical interior. As such, this room chooses to keep to its simple palette featuring a calm, soothing blue paired with a clean, crisp white combination. It’s stunning splashed around the interior in hints and waves.
Nautical Wall Covering
Try to bring in colors of the sand and the sea to a stark room with an ocean-inspired wall hanging. Set against a neutral background, this wall art takes center stage, transforming your space into a year-round quiet spot for contemplation.
Accessories play a pivotal role in highlighting the nautical theme. If you fancy items associated with a hint of seaside chic, add some seashells to the bedroom wall as a centerpiece or sideline.
The anchor is one of the prominent seafaring elements for a nautical pattern. As an enduring icon of sailing, anchor decor immediately evokes the wonder and magic of the sea to any home. In this way, accessories with anchor motifs are an easy way to add a bold nautical touch.
From starfish to coral, and spots to stripes, I enjoy the way these cushions take maritime inspiration without going overboard. It’s fresh, it’s relaxed and it’s subtle.
Ship Steering Wheels
The enduring symbol of maritime decor, the nautical wheel proudly hung on the wall is best paired with furniture in a similar wood finish. Combining sea shells, blues and reds, and even a couple of paddles, this room must be the captain’s quarters!
