Do you spend a lot of time in your boat going fishing or exploring areas that are normally inaccessible by any means other than a boat? Do you love the vast ocean and the many things that can be found in it? Are you the type of person who can’t get enough of what he loves to the point that you want to surround yourself in it. Well, no matter what your reasons are, I suggest you try out nautical-themed decor for your home.
Nautical decor are a great alternative to use for your home if you haven’t redecorated in a while. They never go out of style and are fit for any part of your home be it your bedroom, your living room, your bathroom, etc. They give your home a unique touch of lightness and vibrancy that you can’t get with other decors. To make them work in your home, here are a few tips that I want to share with you.
One main element of your nautical decor is that it should be able to emulate the wide open sea. This effect is usually achieved by painting the walls with blue. You can choose from any of the shades of blue, just as long as you choose one that makes your walls look like the ocean or the sea. Try to keep the colors simple, so that when you look at it your eyes feel as if they’re looking out in to the calm and tranquil sea.
After you’ve taken care of the room color, you should work on the objects and furniture that you’re going to decorate the room with. Vary the textures of the objects. Make us of a wicker chair or a leather sofa. They can be anything you want, as long as you don’t overdo them. As for what type of objects, try to be imaginative. Think of things that you can normally find in a ship and then use them in your nautical decor. Use portholes and anchors as accents. Also, try to include some trinkets from the ocean. Some seashells, fish statues and dolphin figurines will fit in nicely with the decor.
Another great thing about nautical decor is that it’s very affordable to put together. You can usually find the stuff that you need in the market at a huge bargain. Try looking in the internet to get some deals on some items.
