Bringing the seaside into your home

If you love the idea of recreating a bright, breezy nautical feel in your home, there are loads of ways to introduce this to your décor. The beauty of a nautical theme is that is offers a great relaxed and easy vibe in the home, whether you live by the sea or not. One thing you won’t want to recreate in your home is the sea breeze air. You should make sure that you contact a Boiler Service Cheltenham company such as www.blu-fish.co.uk to mkae sure your heating system is in full working order before the colder weather sets in. Perhaps you want to recreate the joy of seaside holidays with a simple living atmosphere?

Colours

Coastal blues, light grey undertones and stonewashed hues are all popular colours to use with a nautical décor. Any shade of blue can be used and combined with other breezy hues of the same colour. For example, colours ranging from deep navy to lilac and everything in between.

Simple

A simple palette works best for a seaside theme, in other words, colours that look like they’ve been sun-bleached. Soft creams, buttermilks and white give a fresh and crisp atmosphere when paired with blues. Any woodwork will look amazing if painted bright white, creating an airy feel. Team up with colour blocks of blue and white, stripes and some natural materials for texture and contrast, like seagrass, shells and sand.

Country kitchen

A seaside theme works great in a large country-style kitchen with lots of space to display vintage items like crockery and nautical accessories. Blue wood panelling combined with natural materials such as basket and netting will carry on the outdoor, watery theme.
