Sunday Style… Nautical Decor

An elegant nautical style dining room.

Nautical style is incorporating architectural elements from boats and boat-building.  The most common nautical decor item is the model yacht.  Look at places like Home Goods for a bargain on model yachts!  Use nautical charts, either framed or wallpaper an accent wall with them!  Use paddles or oars, nautical rope or rope items, ship’s wheels, and portholes to incorporate in your nautical decorating!
This interior includes a model ship, ornate moldings painted bright white, a telescope and highly polished wood floors. These are all indicators of a nautical decor.
This is a more contemporary interior, but the staircase of oar-shaped rails is a unique touch.
How much fun would this be?

Nautical decor is not very different from beach or coastal decor, often times it just incorporates some dark wood, model sailboats, or other nautical touches, such as oars, nautical ropes, telescopes, compasses and maps.

This dark wood, nautical themed bunk room includes sleeping for eight grandchildren!

This is the 2004 HGTV Dream Home

The HGTV 2004 Dream Home is a lovely example of not just a waterside home, but a nautical home.  The tower is indicative of a lighthouse.  To put all of these other nautical elements inside this home would add up to a lovely nautical-style home.
