Coastal Cool

White shiplap walls and bunk beds create a clean backdrop for poppy nautical accents, like the sisal-style floor and light fixtures. Classic navy and white stripes, a lifeguard chair and surfboard round out the ocean-inspired aesthetic.

Classic Combo

Is there anything more overtly nautical than classic navy-and-white stripes? We think not. And this lovely living room uses the timeless pattern to perfectly set up the nautical vibes. A few pieces of oceanic art and plenty of blue and white accents solidifies the sea-friendly style.

Red, White and Blue

Bold reds aren't always the best choice for a bedroom — they can feel overwhelming and aren't exactly the most calming color. In this room, a cherry red lamp and red stripe on the bedding addings a poppy, but still nautical, vibe. A seagrass bed completes the coastal vibe.

Beachy Bunks

Ahoy mateys! This stylish guest room is the perfect place to bunk with your besties. The beds are outfitted with striped bedding in a fresh color palette, while the rope ladder lends the space a ship-esque feel. White shiplap walls keep the space feeling bright and welcoming.

Baby Blues

This nursery has the perfect baby-friendly take on the nautical trend. A blue ceiling and whale mobile set the scene without feeling too childish — all the better to grow with the baby! — while a cute lobster pillow adds a whimsical final touch.

Shades of the Sea

The framed beach-inspired art leaves little question as to what inspired this dining room — it's all about the sea. Muted seafoam green vases, a weathered wood buffet and coral accents all echo the hues of the ocean.

Sail Away

This bedroom is perfect for any kid who dreams of hitting the seas someday. A framed sailing jacket and kitchsy sailor figurines pair perfectly with the neutral striped bedding and fun pops of red.

Eclectic and Airy

Tiered chandeliers and a nautical centerpiece add to this dining room's chic coastal style. Plenty of beachy blues call to mind the beauty of the ocean, while an abundance of windows keeps the space feeling airy.

Elevated Ocean Style

Touches of nautical style, from the seahorse art prints to the boat hull coffee table, bring a whimsical element to this traditional living space. The open floor plan leads to a sophisticated dining room with a lantern light fixture and classic wood dining table and chairs.

Back to Basics

While not overtly nautical — you won't find anchors or mini ships here — this kitchen uses navy blue and crisp white to create a sleek space with just enough of a sea-friendly edge.
