The beach is indeed a favorite place for many people, so everyone always likes to go to Bali, Lombok, Komodo Islands to Santorini.
This gives rise to the desire to stay by the beach all the time.
But what if fate places us in cities without beaches or mountains?
Why not just change your home decor with a nautical style to make it feel like on the beach?
What Is Nautical Decoration? Nautical decoration is a design that reminds us of the sea and all things sea and beach related.
This design style can be applied anywhere, including homes and small rooms.
The colors that indicate nautical are generally blue, white, dark blue, and beige. These colors are often seen as symbolizing the sea, and navy uniforms.
Rukita has collected various tips for you so that your house can look like houses on the beach.
How to decorate a house or room with a beach theme
Use Beach Color Wall Paint The first step is of course changing the paint color. Nautical design houses generally have colors that are inspired by the sea and the beach, namely various shades of blue, white (more light white and off-white), and beige.
For exterior colors, you can try beige, white, or even baby pink and light gray. for the interior you can use white, off-white and a few touches of blue (especially navy blue). You need lots of natural sunlight for a nautical theme, so your house must have lots of windows.
Sunlight will make your house feel open and bright. In addition, the sunlight that enters and shines on the white walls will make your house feel like it’s been exposed to the coastal sun.
- Use Wood Panels
For floors, you can use white ceramic or light brown / beige wood floors.
If it’s difficult to replace the floor, you can just buy a wooden plank motif carpet.
- Make sure the room has a window Wood panels (either vertical or horizontal) are easy to find in carpentry shops. Wooden panels are usually used to make the body of a lifeboat or boat, so they will immediately have a nautical effect.
You can use this wood panel as a layer for the walls of your house, so that your house looks like it is inside the hull.
If you decorate a room at home with wood panels, it is advisable to paint the room white. Then you can decorate the house in dark blue here and there.
It is recommended to use this wood panel in your room or lounge because this panel will create a casual impression.
- Use Natural Color Sofa in the Living Room and Family It is recommended to use a white sofa in nautical style houses. The white sofa can be a blank canvas so you can explore with colors in other decorations.
You can use pillowcases, rugs, or put a sofa cover from colorful fabrics.
If you don’t like white, you can use an ivory, beige or very soft blue sofa.
