Whether your home is a beachside getaway or you just love the water, decorating with nautical-inspired décor is timeless, especially when done in small doses. Worn woods, twine netting and touches of coral are classics and blend well with a variety of other décor.
Natural wood tones, distressed blue paint and a bit of coral give this entry a neutral yet nautical flair. The gorgeous geometric mirror adds a sculptural element and helps bounce light around the space while the grasscloth wallpaper and rug add texture.
In Chris' bedroom, a mix of high and low created his designer bed ensemble. A custom bed upholstered in automotive vinyl was the area's biggest purchase; however, deceptively budget-friendly purchases were made for the remainder of the space. The demilune-shaped chests came from ZGallerie for $600 each, and not only do they add an elegant touch, they offer concealed storage. Table lamps atop the chests were found at a flea market and updated with red paint and new metallic drum shades. While Ralph Lauren bedding in a classic paisley print was a splurge, custom pillows made from $6.99 per yard IKEA tartan fabric kept the budget in check. To allow Chris to easily change up the looks of his bedding, the backs of each pillow were covered in a nautical print from Duralee.
Designers wanted to stick with the nautical theme throughout the home's spaces, so designers chose a navy wallpaper with a sailboat pattern for the upper portion of the walls in the space. To help keep the space from being overwhelmed by the dark, navy color, white paneling was added to the bottom of the walls and carried through to the space's vanity. A wood countertop and white sink and warmth and continuity to the design while it is finished off with a light gray, penny-round tile floor that adds a touch of flair.
