Nautical Theme Decorating Ideas

Homes with nautical themes are bright, comfortable and whimsical. Rooms come alive with bold colours, and objects related to the sea complement nautical nuances. Options for the nautical look vary, ranging from casual to formal, but they all focus on comfort. The key to the nautical look is working with colours that set the mood for your home.

Classic

The many shades of blue are probably most commonly associated with the nautical theme. The colours in the sea range from light blue to deep hues of grey and green. Bring these colours into your home to emphasise the nautical theme. Select colours you enjoy looking at, and pick colours that enhance the mood you want to evoke. Light shades of blue create a calming mood while shades of green create a more energetic mood. Use blue glass vases, compasses and starfish to highlight themes.

Primary Colors

Primary colours convey calm and cheery moods. Red, blue and yellow colour combinations brighten up rooms, and, when combined with furniture and accessories that have clean lines, they liven interiors. Work with one main colour, and use the other two throughout the room in smaller pieces. You may want to upholster your sofa with red, and use blue and yellow in throw pillows and vases. Frame signal flags for something different to display colour. A favourite accessory in nautical homes is a lighthouse. Use pictures and figurines of these classic sea icons to bring a touch of the ocean into your home.

Relaxed

Comfort is king with the nautical theme. The sandy colours of the beach work well with relaxed and natural themes. You can create a relaxed nautical theme in your home by using natural elements of the earth, such as bamboo, wicker and rattan. Select light and durable furniture, and top with creamy cushions. Light and airy window treatments expand the openness of rooms to create a sense of peacefulness. Sheers and cotton fabric in shades of white promote serenity. Choose braided or jute rugs in shades of beige and brown to bring the look of the room together. Use seashells and candles to create a casual mood.
