Even those who aren’t entranced by the mysteries of the deep will appreciate a seafaring decorating scheme, but those who can sit and ponder the ocean’s waves for hours will certainly want to incorporate a nautical feel into their home decor.
It isn’t cheap, but those who want to decorate their home using a seafaring motif can line their walls halfway up with wainscoting and a chair rail in deeply stained wood so that the room is reminiscent of a beautiful old ship.
There are also lots of other ideas an innovative decorator can bring to a room when a nautical design is desired.
The color of curtains for the window depends on the theme of your room and your color preference. One color that always soothes your eyes is marine shade of blue, have them made with same materials that sail covers of sailboat are made.
If you are more experimental, paint the walls blue, and the choose another color for the curtains or blinds. If you want to remain simple, white is always acceptable.
When trying to make your nautical theme seem a bit more real, rope is a great tool that you could use. You can use rope to decorate by wrapping it around objects such as picture frames and candles.
This will make it match with the room and keep it from looking out of place. If you are feeling really ambitious and want to add an extra special touch to the room you could hang a hammock in a corner of the room – this could then be used to hold the guests coats in the winter, or merely as a decoration throughout the year.
Try your hand at decorating in a nautical theme. Using portal windows, sea shells, barometers, and other artwork depicting the sea is a great way to get the feeling you are at the seashore or on a boat. Using the theme “at sea” is often an easy way to feel connected to Mother Nature, as well as be on a mini vacation!
The mysteries of the sea are certainly captured in the image of a beckoning lighthouse casting its rays onto the waves. Thomas Kincaid is one artist who does lovely renditions of lighthouses in his paintings. You might want to find a print of his or someone else’s to add to the seafaring decorating scheme of your home for summer.
