Designing with nautical in mind can be kind of tricky. Here are some tips to keep your home looking like a boathouse!

Keep the details in mind by using items with anchors, rope, lighthouses, and lanterns. Don’t use too many of these, but small little touches do make a world of difference.



When it comes to the nautical look the color palette is very important. Keep them contrasting and clean. The usual nautical colors consist of; red, blue, white, tan, and sometimes orange. Nautical is clean and crisp like the ocean so keep the colors simple.


Lastly, keep in mind focal elements that make your house even more sail savvy. Check out boat shelves, helms, and old sails or nets.
