Nautical Decoration – Decoration from Heritage

This week we pick of great colours, textures, patterns and paints that work well together. Showing that  anything can be the catalyst for a great interior scheme…it’s where inspiration meets practicality.

1 – The Inspiration

Take a voyage into this nautically inspired scheme. Imagine Crisp see air, contrasted with fluffy white clouds and offset by the sandy beige of a beautiful beach. But keep the look modern with graphic stripes and natural textures.

3 – The interior

Interesting Textures and materials , such as natural wood and linen, are key to this look. Recreate it by combining stripes with pale woods and inky shades of blue to black.

Use a pale base as your foundation, pairing wooden floorboards with clean white walls.

Keeps things simple with pendant and table lights in strict monochrome.

Combine slubby linens in shades of blue and beige for a relaxed, organic vibe.

Select tableware in natural or honest materials – think wooden candlesticks and serving boards, and glass tumblers contrasted with plain white porcelain plates.

Matching white walls with equally pale drapery will bounce light around your room.

Mix stripped cushions in shades of grey, blue and black for graphic impact.

Opt for simple furniture in pale wood or white, then add interesting, characterful  touches with a few driftwood or craft-inspired accessories.
