Achieving that nautical vibe
Nautical-themed interiors give out that relaxing, out of town vibe. It never goes out of style as well. Turn your home into your very own nautical haven with a few simple tweaks with the help of Wilcon Depot.
‘Sea’ it with color
Pick colors that are associated with the sea—blue, white and red.
If you are feeling a bit unsure of having a marine-themed living space the whole year round, pick white as the dominant color of your interiors such as for your walls and large pieces of furniture. Have your accents, such as your throw pillows, throw blankets, vases and other accessories in navy, light blue, red and coral.
Wilcon Depot has a wide selection of paints which can help you build your house’s color palette just the way you want it.
Pick a room, experiment
You may opt to have your nautical theme contained in one area of your home. For instance, give your dining area that boathouse feel to make eating and entertaining a fun and interesting experience.
Get a dining set that reminds you of the beach, pick houseware sets in the color of the ocean, and put up wall decors which remind you of marine life. You can get all these from home accessories and housewares brand Heim, distributed by Wilcon Depot.
If that sailor within you is feeling brave and adventurous and you’re not timid about making bold statements with your color combinations, have your main pieces of furniture in coastal colors: blue, red and white or sandy beige.
Wilcon offers couches and accent chairs in various colors and materials which you can mix and match. Also, save yourself from that embarrassing situation where you don’t have enough seating for your friends when they come over.
We can never emphasize it enough: give your living space that nautical feel with the help of accessories and ornaments. These you can simply place in various areas of the house without having to worry about making big changes such as a new paint job, or replacing your furniture.
Lanterns give our interiors that nautical flair. A clock in the design of a globe feels like you are ready to sail and explore the world at any time.
