Guest Picks: Subtle & Fun Nautical Bedroom Decor
I love this dresser and think it would look great in any room, nautical themed or otherwise.
This lamp looks nautical because of, yep, the rope netting. You can basically add rope to anything to make it nautical — or cowboy, but I'm going with nautical for this ideabook's purposes. This lamp is a great way to instantly add some ocean flair to your room.
These are actual dock cleats, but I see them as curtain tiebacks, drawer pulls or coat hooks.
Add a bit of glam to a nautical bedroom with a gold capiz chevron wall mirror.
Feel like being a little obvious, yet still sophisticated? You'll love this ship pillow.
This wood and metal bench would be perfect at the end of a bed.
Did you know that these rope balls are called "monkey fists"? Me neither. Anyway, I can see them being used as an array of things, from shelf decor to a bookend or even a doorstop.
This chunky jute rug is beautiful, and I want one.
If a jute rug isn't edgy enough for you, how about this super cool octopus rug?
A sailcloth pillow — I think this one is pretty self explanatory.
These finials are from The Land of Nod and made for babies' and kids' rooms, but no one has to know!
Ship wheels and anchors are really obvious ways to add nautical flair to a room, which is why I would normally stray away from them. I do really like this abstract watercolor anchor, though, so I had to include it.
This is a rope bed. Need I say more?
I know, third rug of the roundup. I just want y'all to know that there are options, and that green is a perfectly acceptable color to use in a nautical room.
A linen club chair will pretty much go with any decor.
I am a big fan of having plants in a room; they break things up and make your room feel more, well, natural. Fiddle-leaf fig trees are a gorgeous for that. This one is silk, but real ones are even better.
Nautilus shells aren't anything new, and I really like that this one has has a funky modern twist.
This is a super modern end table with a little nautical flair.
Linen curtains are a beautiful choice for a nautical-themed (or any) room. A super cheap, nearly identical alternative is to use a drop cloth from a hardware store. Just wash it and hang it. It works. I promise.
I can't very well do a roundup of nautical decor and not include something with navy and white stripes, now can I?Next: Dip a Toe Into Modern Nautical Style
