10 Unique Ways to Give Nautical Style a Modern Twist

 

30 Mar 2018

Accessorise your home

Start with classic features in your living space, such as a traditional arm chair or desk, accessorising them with one or two nautical accents. This could include a ship steering wheel, with a white and blue colour scheme running throughout, enough to give a room a bright, fresh feel.

 Nautical Bedding

Map it out

By incorporating maps into your wall paper, you can add a touch of sophistication, giving your household some maritime charm. Try choosing a selection of fresh, light-coloured maps, keeping your home bright and airy.

 

Add a hint of nautical

Give a subtle nod to the seaside, by adding a coastal note to your home. This can be something as simple as a porthole mirror, complimenting a white and blue colour scheme perfectly.

 

Make it moody

Stormy greys are a contemporary alternative to ocean blues. Add a deckchair-stripe blind in grey, coastal artwork and seaside decorations, to add a hint of seaside chic to an elegant backdrop.

 Wave Wallpaper

Dream of the seaside

Relaxing in a hammock doesn’t need to be simply reserved for holidays. You can get a lazy beach throughout the year, accessorising with sea blue pillows to complete the look.

 

 

Blend in blues

Using white wood as your base, try layering varying shades of blue for a subtle coastal feel to your home. Use sky blue beneath your breakfast bar, complementing blue blinds and kitchen accessories for a light, fresh mood.

 Subtle Nautical

Sketch it in

Incorporate a selection of technical drawings focusing on ocean-going craft, creating an interesting feature wall. You can use printed wallpaper for the perfect bathroom design feature.

 

Re-think old designs

Don’t simply fall back on anchor motifs and seaside prints. Add a cabin-style door to your home, with fun sea life pillows, taking a fresh look at classic coastal décor.

 

Create a coastal gallery

Try using such rustic design features in the home as a wooden tongue and groove ceiling in the shape of a boat hull, with white walls to create a backdrop for a collage of modern artwork. You can include rope mirrors and a surf boards to give a coastal feel to the home.

 

Embrace all things nautical

Subtle hints of the seaside are better than going overboard with your theme. Such subtle touches as a fish print blind give a modern feel to your home, adding a sense of fun to your living space.
