Whether you own coastal property or just want to give your home some nautical style, living room decorating with functional, stylish pieces makes the most of the space. There are several nautical living room decorating ideas that may give you a new inspiration. You can start with the walls, walls painted a soft green give the room a calm mood. Check paint chips in your living room’s lighting to choose a shade of green that works best for your home. A pale, barely-there green tint to the walls accents soft-green elements in the decor. Other options include painting one wall soft green with the others painted cream, white or a light tan, or painting the entire living room soft green with a white or cream trim for contrast and to connect with the colors of ocean waves. A room with all-white walls offers a crisp background for a nautical theme.
Then, the next nautical living room decorating ideas; about the furniture. If you’re using your existing furniture in a nautical living room, you might add splashes of soft green with accent pillows and throws. Rustic, salvaged furniture offers a casual style choice. Distressed wood pairs well with soft green. On the other hand, curtains or drapes in soft green harmonize with the nautical theme and also might tint light coming into the living room. An anchor leaning next to the fireplace with a soft-green urn on the other side of the hearth to balance it, or a set of soft-green vases or old glass bottles with a coil of nautical rope on the mantel, a window frame or entertainment center shelf play up the color scheme and theme.
