5 Gorgeous Rooms with a Nautical Theme

Ahoy sailor! Bring out your love for the high seas in the growing trend of nautical themed decorating. Whether is your little boy’s nursery or your bathroom, there are ways to incorporate this classic look anywhere.

1. The essential colors

Red, white, and navy blue are the classic naval colors that you’ll want to use. Don’t forget about your neutrals such as woody browns and canvas creams when you put together your color palette. The great thing is that all these colors almost always go beautiful together with their high contrast bright hues.

  1. Shaping up

Ships are known for their round windows. Bring that style into your bathroom with circle mirrors that feel just like a ship’s portholes. Another lovable thing about this bathroom are the lights and amazing cabinets. They really bring in the feeling of being in a ship from the wood to the details in the door knobs.

  1. Raise the mast

This living room looks like the wow worthy captain’s cabins of a luxury liner. This room keeps the woodsy feel of a ship to bring together fun and classic. The ceiling looks like an upside down ship and the bar looks you could unfurl a sail and sail away in it! This room also incorporates other nautical essentials such as shop helms and those amazing lights that look like a starry sky.

  1. For the young adventurer

This room just screams fun. The map for an accent wall brings something great color to the room and has the bonus of being educational. To maximize the continuity of the look, match rugs to bedsheets to accent pieces. The model sailboat really ties it all together into one central theme.

  1. Show it off

Show off your love for sailing with a beautiful display as the backdrop of your ultimate billiards room. To match the theme, keep the walls and ceiling decorated with wood panel as a nod to the wood that ships were made out. Port mirrors and rope bannisters on the staircase really make this room look like you’re playing pool at sea without the seasickness.

  1. Material overhaul

The nautical style is full of many textures and features a lot of natural fibers. Distressed wood brings a really organic feel. There are many chances to use upcycled pieces such as items made from driftwood or rope.
