There is something advanced and timeless about utilizing a nautical theme when decorating a home. This can either be an entire house or simply one area. Whether you're decorating a holiday home close to the beach or nicely inland from the sea, a nautical or beach decoration is pleasing for everyone.
The days of only having a ship in a bottle on the sideboard that you bought on your last beach vacation are over. You have many avenues with regards to decorating and it's a style that works well for men, women, and children.
A nautical theme doesn't limit you to one simple item as you can find items such as charts and equipment applied to a ship which may be put to good use in. Whether your passion is sailing, rate boats, cruising or perhaps a rowboat all of these could be brought together to achieve a pleasing atmosphere for everyone.
Topics I'll cover in this article include:
Ropes and Knots
Where would a ship be without its ropes and knots? I suspect it will be adrift, that's where. Using a mixture of ropes and knots can transform your room giving it the appearance of a deck of a ship or a seaside harbor. Wrapping rope around everything from banisters to glasses will give your home a nautical touch that also an old salty sea canine would feel at home in. Remember you don't have to go overboard with this theme, a few simple touches could keep it classy, not tacky.
Using a natural colored rope instead of synthetic rope will provide you with an authentic look.
In the image, the rope can be used to mask the wires connecting the ceiling lights. It is a perfect example of how efficiently chunky rope can work in home decor. It isn't overpowering but blends in well with both traditional and contemporary furniture and decor. The picture behind the sofa leaves you in no doubt that the owner of this home loves the seaside and perhaps even beach life.
Decorating With Fishing Nets
If you have a large area to cover either inside or out, consider using a fishing net strung open up and decorated with various beach and or boating items. A few of these could include shells, starfishes, antique style glass floats, synthetic or dried seaweed and other nautical items.
I've seen these used to good effect. My mother used to have one on her patio. She had a long blank wall which required something and a angling net was the solution. It can be decorated all in one go or as you collect items. In the picture above you see a ship's lifetime preserver, and shells. Driftwood furthermore makes an interesting addition to a decorative angling net.
Kids are amazed and intrigued by shells and ocean life in general and it makes an excellent conversational piece.
Old Maps and Charts
If you're searching for something basic, consider decoring with old maps and charts, they look wonderful on a wall. They take you back to a time when sailors were legends. They struck out making use of their crew in search of uncharted lands. Often they would be gone for years and sometimes they might never come back. It was a tough life but once existence at sea gets you, there is absolutely no going back to being truly a landlubber.
Most charts and maps are either naturally or even artificially aged to provide them an authentic look.
The neutral color lends itself to blending with numerous color schemes and may be used just as well in a eating area, lifestyle area or anywhere there's a large blank wall.
Pirate Decorations for Little Boys Rooms
Don't forget the likelihood of decorating with a pirate theme. That is especially fun in a room for a little boy. Those swashbuckling villains have become popular again because the Pirates of the Caribbean films hit the display. Decorate with things such as the Jolly Roger flags, pirate hats, eye patches and also parrots.
A room can be transformed into a virtual pirate ship! Envision a treasure chest full of toys.
Mermaid Decorations for GIRLS
If the llittle boy will probably have his bedroom decorated with a pirate theme, how about little girls?
They may be mermaids. What litttle lady doesn't dream of being truly a mermaid?
Flowing curtains and quite bedding and maybe a good mural on the walls of an underwater scene.
Decorating doesn't have to cost a lot of money, you merely need to get a theme and a color scheme. For mermaids, blues, pinks, and greens work best.
