Red, White, Blue and Yellow

Christmas decor doesn't have to stick to greens and reds. Red, white and blue maritime flags top this tree to tie the holiday decor together with the blue dining chairs while expressing the homeowners' love for all things nautical. Red and yellow roses hint at Christmas colors while relating to the artwork and side chairs in the dining room.

Coming Up Roses

Red and yellow roses set in a bed of greenery create an elegant Christmas centerpiece on the dining table.

Maritime Place Cards

Yellow-and-white maritime flag place cards continue the nautical theme to each individual setting.

Christmas, A'hoy

The red and yellow rose centerpiece is studded with maritime flags to tie it together with the rest of the nautical decor.

Christmas Kitchen

The red, blue, yellow and white accents continue into the eat-in kitchen.

Party Time

Maritime flags serve as insipiration for the plates and cookies. Red and yellow roses adorn the island, just as they do the dining room table.

Keeping Maritime

A naval-style clock counts down the minutes until Santa arrives.

Breakfast Nook

Stools covered in navy blue and white nautical stripes surround the breakfast nook, while a chandelier made from rope tops the maritime-themed space.

The Table is Set

Red, blue, yellow and white in patterns of stripes, plaid and gingham create a nautical-themed table setting.

Nautical Stripes

A rug with a thick navy-and-white striped pattern continues the nautical theme in the cozy keeping room adjacent to the open-plan kitchen.

Raise the Flags

Maritime flags inspire the throw pillows on the sofas and inserts to the media cabinet's doors. 

Ship-Shape Mantel

Maritime flags and rope dress up the greenery garland on the mantel, while navy blue and red striped stockings suit the American flag artwork above.

Fresh Decor

A similar garland adorns the banister along the home's stairwell.

Corralling Muddy Shoes

This mudroom includes cubbies for storage of loose items, hooks on which to hang sporting equipment and a spot to drop wet boots. A cheery wreath adds color to the space.

Gatherings and Games

The back patio is set for gathering and games thanks to a cozy fire pit area and a spot for bean bag toss. A banner of maritime flags continues the nautical theme in the outdoors.
