Modern Nautical Decor

Nautical design doesn't necessarily mean red, white and blue anymore. It can be any array of colors that remind you of the water or the beach. Decor expert Jennifer Reid shows us a how the nautical look has been reinterpreted with modern decor choices.

How to achieve the modern nautical look:

Play with pattern: Use patterns from nautical settings, like signal flags, but keep the graphic large. Round shapes are also very reminscent of portholes and suit the modern nautical aesthetic.

Let texture tell the story: Textures that are associated with ships, docks and the sea are key. Combine reclaimed wood and metal pieces with coral accents.

Blue is your backdrop: Wall colour is key to the modern nautical aesthetic. A rich dark blue is the perfect backdrop for this space. We recomment Benjamin Moore Deep Royal 2061-10.
