Because we all use our living spaces differently throughout the year, it’s always fun to change up your space seasonally. Even though we're halfway through the summer, it's easy to update with the Nautical Look because you can bring it into your décor without going overboard. Get an instant update with wonderful throw cushions with prints of sea creatures, anchors or ships. Or bring the seaside to your space by adding prints or wall art. I like large black and white photographs of sailor’s knots or a metal cut out of a light house to create visual focal points in a space without feeling like you’re on a boat out on the water.
You can also have fun creating your own DIY by upcycling existing pieces to give them a nautical feel. For example, if you have an old mirror and some heavy twine, you can wrap the rope around the frame.
You can also personalize a corner with a small grouping with a collection of beach front finds. If you have a console table that you are not using, repaint it with ocean-inspired striped palette. Or cover it with a striped table cloth. Bring in some texture by filling a shadow box with examples of sailor’s knots or fill clear glass candle holders or big glass bowls with small stones, sea glass or shells.
