What fun is that to come home to the one place that should offer a peaceful and calm sense to your life?
Decorating with the Sights and Sounds of the Sea
Nautical home decor creates a relaxed atmosphere where you can put your feet up, grab your favorite book, and enjoy the life of a seafarer. Knowing the importance of a homeowner’s decision about decorating, the home decor market brings in approximately $65.2 billion each year. Nautical decor and furnishings are an important part of the home decor market. Over 123 million people live in coastal shoreline counties, and the majority of their decorating style is a nautical theme. When you are looking to incorporate nautical elements, look no further than your local beach town. There you will find furniture, lighting, and accent pieces that bring the coastal elements into your home. With brass nautical clocks, decorative ship?s wheel, old marine charts, and a simple blue and white striped pattern you can bring on a coastal chic that is light and airy. Use larger pieces as your focal point and smaller accent pieces and natural textiles to create a light and airy feel.
