Home Style

Living in a state that is on the coast, I am here to tell you that there is a way to achieve the nautical home style without being too thematic. There are a lot of nautical elements that I love, like antiqued finish mirrors, stripes, even rope! Whether you think you dig the nautical style or not, I hope that this little round up will show you there is a more stylish side than the nautical style you might be used to.

Take this living room for example! It has a nautical, modern feel to it. The colors scream nautical with shades of blue, whites and reds. There's lots of fun elements like the rope ottomans and driftwood inspired coffee table.

Please notice that not everything in the room screams nautical. To pull off this look, you just need a few elements and the right color scheme. You could even have less on-the-nose décor than this room and still pull it off. Maybe a pretty antiqued brass mirror? The more round the better! A sofa similar to this navy one above would be perfect and a great staple for any living room style.

As for how you can create your own... Here are a few ideas!

Nautical Home Furnishings

Let’s start with the sconce lighting. The Franklin Iron Works Nautical Bronze Outdoor Wall Light definitely has that seaside town feel to it, don’t you think? It would look awesome lining a hallway, lighting up a living room or even on the back porch. I love the industrial feel to this light too. Very chic!

The artwork is a favorite of mine. A classy sailboat blueprint design, like this Flat Bottom Blueprint Wall Art in a rustic frame. I love it! This would look amazing in a nautical chic space.

And the chair... Well, let’s just say that I want this Horizontal Stripe Accent Chair with or without the nautical theme! The stripes bring in both the nautical look while adding some modern style to the room as well. You really can’t go wrong with stripes! This chair would be a great accent chair in a living room where you're trying to get a seaside feel to your home decor.

So what do you think? Would you try the nautical look in your home?
