When it comes to interior design, new trends are emerging all of the time. Colours and styles that were “in” last year, are “out” the next, it can be difficult to find a style that is timeless. Nautical themes have stood the test of time and are a great way of adding freshness to a room. Whether you live at the beach, near the sea or just want to bring the tranquillity of the seaside into your home, nautical style is the choice for you.
Just the muttering of the word “nautical” can fill our heads with thoughts of blue and white stripes covering every surface and mismatched driftwood accessories everywhere, but you don’t need to go overboard (pun intended). While blue should be a prominent colour, pair it with cream instead of white and use a range of blue tones rather than the same blue throughout. Turquoise blue modernises a nautical style and creates a bright, fresh look.
Don’t forget that the beach isn’t just about the sea. If blue and cream don’t appeal to you, keep the look subtle and opt for natural and sandy tones. Oranges, yellows and golds can really pop against a cream/taupe palette. Think about your accessories too, if you’ve chosen a subtler colour scheme then add some personality with homemade cushions or dramatic curtains.
