Nautical Interior Design
Nautical interior design focuses on the very spirit of days out at the seaside; the hues of blues, the golden sand and all of the beach accessories in between. So if you love to be beside the seaside, a nautical home makeover could be just what you need!
Thinking about what colours you will use is a great place to start with any interior design project. As we are concentrating on a nautical theme, it helps to jot down all of the colours associated with it;
- Shades of blues – the sea and the sky are token features of a good old seaside trip
- Shades of whites – offset the blues against the whites to create an overall maritime feeling
- Shades of brown – reflect maritime and beach accessories with wooden furniture
The sofa you choose is important as this tends to be the focal point of the room. We recommend our Alita 3 Seater Sofa (scatter back) which is now just £489.
The neutral fabrics and duck egg blue accent cushions make this range an ideal choice for anyone looking to bring a nautical theme into their home. In addition to its modern styling, this sofa provides supreme levels of comfort with its soft and cosy fibre-filled seats – perfect for sprawling!

However, if you are looking to make a bolder statement, our Dorset 3 seater sofa is an ideal choice and it is available exclusively online from £449.
The Fantasia Teal colour of the Dorset makes it very appropriate for a nautical-themed home. It also comes as a chaise model and the cushion is reversible so you can have it left hand or right hand facing, depending on your preference. Shop the Dorset range here.
Flooring is another key component to really consider as it helps to set the tone and atmosphere in your room. Our high quality, Supergloss Extra Sensitive laminate flooring will work well inside your nautical themed home.
The faded yellow shade of this laminate will help to represent the golden sand of the beach and its light colour will allow you to add contrasting decorative pieces to your room. Such pieces should help to illustrate the very spirit of a trip to the seaside.
Shop the Supergloss Extra Sensitive range, from just £37.99 per m2.
Aside from your sofas, the other furniture which you choose to include in your room will add to the overall look, feel and atmosphere.
That’s why we recommend adding a coffee and lamp table – it’ll give you the perfect opportunity to carry the theme further and it’s a great way to make your room feel homely.
Our Montrose range is perfect for a nautical-themed home with its oak effect finish.
Complete the look with a lamp table from the Montrose range.
