The nautical-theme is an especially beloved interior design theme of Singaporeans, and there are certainly many interpretations of it that we’ve looked at before. However, this one is special and unique in its own right, so if you’re in the search for some sea-faring inspiration, here’s some tasteful one for you:
1. Ship-themed accessories
No matter how bold or apparent you get with your nautical theme, you’ll never be able to pull it off if you don’t have the right accessories and décor. So the sea-fare accessories topped on this media wall are an excellent inspiration for everyone searching for the kind of décor that can enhance a nautical style interior design and take it to a whole new level of authentic.
2. Shape of the ship
The nautical theme would be incomplete without a ship, so it’s the first thing that you should think about. The actual shape of the ship can be next to impossible to incorporate within a typical interior design, but if you think out of the box, it can definitely be done. The extensive use of the statement wall and the minimalist interpretation of the shape of a ship in the form of this media wall is a great way to do exactly that.
3. Lighting the key elements
Highlight the key design elements of your nautical theme is the perfect way to make it more apparent. So, what’s the best way to do that? Accent lighting, of course! Take the example of this ship-shaped statement wall. The round “window” displays as well as the top rectangular displays have been installed with internal lighting to make the appearance of a ship afloat the sea at night.
4. The plank effect
One thing that all old-school ships had in common in the past was the wooden construction, in which planks were a very apparent feature. You can revisit this particular element while interpreting your nautical interior design theme. It would add a sense of whimsy to the whole space!
5. Mixing and matching
Sometimes, you need a mix and match of all aforementioned elements to get a holistic overall picture, which is where you can get inspired by this loft-style bedroom design. from the use of wood, round windows, and the ship steering wheel, it’s got it all and owns it well!
