Beach style should be reserved for houses on the beach. It’s a little odd to have a nautical themed home in the burbs. This style includes light colours with splashes of colour such as navy blue and even bright colours, loads of natural light (i.e. windows), nautical accessories such as rope, dark wood and other items found on boats and wicker or rattan furniture.

Nautical interior designs are best described as positive, warm, and relaxing. Typically makes use of elements like sea creatures, ships, and anchors. The colour palettes are full of colours that you would see on the beach, using an abundance of white, blue, and sand-coloured foundations, along with inexpensive wooden furniture and hues of oceanic blue. Some key characteristics of nautical designs include chic linen upholstery for lounges, unfinished wood used in chairs and tables, and sea-inspired decorative accents like jute ropes, seashells and rowing oars.
