Nautical interiors are popular not only in coastal resorts and communities, but clearly are at home in almost any setting. There needs to be abundant light. You want to feel as though there’s no boundary between indoors and outdoors.
Instilling that carefree, nautical lifestyle into an interior can often boil down to the color palette and materials used in the room. There are some essentials to stick by when it comes to this look. From blue and white to rope accents, each element has its inspiration in the sailing tradition of large ships, navigation and marine life. My favorite elements are accents of marine life and also striped patterns in fabrics and wallcoverings.
By the way, you do not need to live by the beach to make this style work.
