The nautical home furnishings look back on a long tradition in interior design. This is undoubtedly inspired by long, romantic seafaring and old sailing ships. The main colors blue and white look best against a neutral background. Decorative elements made of leather and wood are reminiscent of life on the sea or on the high seas. Brass lanterns, pictures of sextants and other authentic deco items make for a maritime flair, as if we were on a ship.
Furniture in a classic style
Unfinished or painted wood with a paint finish on it adds a decidedly nautical touch and takes you into the atmosphere of an old ship. To create more coziness, you could arrange traditional armchairs or leather sofas in soft neutral colors. Also think of benches, side tables and coffee tables.
The inspiration for this home design comes without a doubt from old lighthouses, which are always practical and can withstand wind and bad weather for a long time. Interesting looking lanterns bring a warm glow to your home. Table lamps, floor lamps, hanging lamps, chandeliers, etc. complete the maritime room look.
Strong colors, stripes and symbols
The main colors in this style are red, blue, clear yellow and nautical stripes, ie flags and signals seen at sea. Add carpets, flags, pillows, towels, curtains, pictures in these shades.
Maritime decoration elements
Materials such as brass, bronze and copper convey a sense of warmth. A dazzling patina effect reminiscent of industrial steel shipyard. Cords and navigation tools such as folders, spider anchors, sextants, armillary spheres complete the look. Other decorative elements such as canvas paintings, rope hooks, wall clocks, ship models, decorative bells and anchors, sailboats, telescopes, globes, antique world maps and shell decoration can be used as brilliant highlights.
