Do you live on the seashore and want to bring some of that salty beauty in your home? Or are you landlocked but long for the ocean breeze? No matter if you like nautical themes simply because you think they’re beautiful, or they remind you of times gone by, there are some really fun ways to bring them into your home. Read on to learn more and then check out all your drapery options at Half Price Drapes.
Add nautical accents
One of the most important things to remember when you’re adding a theme to one or more rooms in your home is that adding accents is going to work better than trying to ensure that every item in the room fits with the theme. When guests walk into your home, you want them to think, “This nautical theme is lovely!” If you decorate only with nautical themed items, they’re more likely to gasp in shock than in appreciation.
Colors are important
Decorating with navy and white separately, or together in wide stripes, is one of the easiest ways to instantly bring in a nautical theme. Bright, bold reds are also popular with nautical décor. For example, these dusk blue and off white horizontal striped curtains instantly bring to mind seashores and their related colors. You could then add accents of red pillows and you’d have your nautical color scheme all settled.
Think outside the box
As you’re looking for appropriately nautical things to add to your themed room, you’ll likely think of the obvious things like ships, animals of the sea, and anchors. But what about some out of the box options? We’ve seen some really interesting nautical gear out there, including lamps in the shape of lighthouses, mirrors made out of seashells, and unique prints of famous ships.
Remember to have fun with it!
There are some great rules out there that will help you create the right balance within your themed room. They can help you prevent overdoing it while ensuring that your theme is obvious. That said, remember that these are just a starting place for you. At the end of the day, all that really matters is that you love the room you’ve created!Half Price Drapes offers a wide range of curtains, cushion covers, and other accessories.
