Blue is the typical color for nautical decor. It has a calming effect and when combined with white, looks especially attractive. You can use the blue color for painting the walls or limit it to curtains or shutters. However, blue and white are not the only colors which will help you create your maritime ambience. Beige and white – the colors of sand, ropes and sails – are a successful combination which adds a natural feel to the interior. Bright red accents enhance the main colors and attract the attention. Stripes are very popular for the marine themed interiors. Select striped wallpapers or paint the walls in stripes. Vertical lines visually raise the ceiling while horizontal stripes “shrink” space, so they are not suitable for small spaces. If that is the case add stripes in the upholstery of the furniture or the decorative pillows.

For an authentic nautical dеcor you need to choose the right decorative accents and items. Maps, anchors, wheel, lifebuoy, hourglass, copper lantern lighthouse, surfboards, portholes are traditional maritime symbols and can be placed anywhere. A globe and models of sailing ships are also a good idea. Stones and shells you gathered from the beach during the summer holidays, starfish, mussels – all these items will add to the dеcor and the theme of the room. Ropes can be used in many creative ways. You can tie a rope around vases, pots, table legs or chairs. Curtains made of a fish net in which shells, starfish and colorful pebbles are entangled is a fantastic accent.
