Na, Na, Nautical Decor


I used to shy away from nautical style decor because it was a bit too "Nantucket preppy" for me. I've stumbled across a number of inspiring photos and decor items that have caused me to change my tune. Nautical decor isn't just for beach houses and theme rooms, furthermore it doesn't have to be confined to the summer months. I present you with a number of vintage, new, handmade and vintage inspired pieces that will have you shouting "anchors aweigh!" to under the sea looks.

  1. Ooh, great post! WANT the pillow, the boat lantern, the octopus chair, and that cool duvet. Because my dad built sailboats when I was young, I saw my fair share of nautical decor. A friend of Dad's had sailboat blueprint wallpaper similar to the wall behind the rope mirror, and I always loved it. Seems silly for me to try a nautical themed room where I live, but one day when I have my little house in a seaside village, it will be so much fun to decorate :) Have a great weekend!
