Home Decorating With a Nautical Theme


Some people just love the sea and everything about it and there is no better way to revisit the sea everyday than decorating with a nautical theme. Decorating your home with the inspiration of the deep blue sea will work for lovers of the sea or just someone looking to decorate. Either way it makes an excellent decorating theme.

There are many ways that you can decorate using a nautical theme. One of these ways is by using a wainscoting for the lower half of your walls and also your chair rail in an attempt to mimic the walls in a fine sailing vessel.  This will look like the interior of a sailboat or even some types of powerboats. This is not always the cheapest decorating idea but it can make a huge impact on your home’s visual appeal. Done correctly it can look absolutely stunning!

Another great idea is to use a ocean like shade of blue for window coverings.  You can make them of the same type of materials that they make the sails out of on a sailboat. You can even paint the walls in this ocean blue and choose a different color for the curtains and window coverings instead. White walls are perfectly fine though when it decorating with a nautical theme as well.

Another great design idea is to use rope.  You can wrap rope around picture frames, candles, and all kinds of other things to add the look of the sea to your home. Rope can make your design seem really authentic and very nautical.

Portals, barometers, clocks and other nautical items look great used at art. You could also use items like seashells, sand dollars, boat models, and sea scene artwork. For the true sea lover, use what reminds you of your favorite boat or ocean.

Of course, every nautical themed room needs a lighthouse. Google the artist named Thomas Kincaid. He is known as the painter of light and has captured the beauty of lighthouses and the sea like no one else.  One of his paintings would be a perfect addition to your room, or any room for that matter.

Using a nautical theme in your home can be downright beautiful. There are so many great pieces at almost every home decor store because it is a very popular theme.  It should be easy to find great things to use in your decor.  You can also make a visit to the beach for shells and other items that you can get for free!
