One great way to give your home a refreshing flavour, is to take inspiration from the sea and all of the riches that it has to offer.
This wonderfully inviting bedroom gives an instant example of how to quickly accomplish the seaside style. The crisp navy and white cotton bed sheets are complemented by the shiplap bed frame and rustic floorboards, whereas the subtle but engaging collection of nautical accessories such as lanterns, fish artwork and anchor bed cushion all deliver the coastal theme perfectly.
And this spacious and stylish kids bedroom uses a well-placed ship’s wheel motif to match the subtle nautical themes emerging through the clean white and blue striped bed curtains and smart white rope ladder.
These bold cobalt blue cushions again illustrate the diversity and ease with which nautical themes can be introduced into many different living areas. In conjunction with the crisp white floorboards and carefully distressed matching deckchairs, they add a charm that is both playful and classy!
And if you really want to push the boat out, why not take inspiration from this fantastically inventive rowboat bathtub! With soft blues matching the refined tiling and sleepily welcoming wooden shutters, it’s not only an excellent example of upcycling, but also a great way to relax in your new nautical home.
And accessories such as anchors, fishing nets and even life-preservers like the one below can all be swiftly customised into a variety of surprising uses, as illustrated by this wonderful life-preserver clock below. There’s no end to the fun that can be had with allowing a bit of sea life into your home!
