Let’s Get Nautical

Let's get nautical

It seems like every year, the nautical trend comes back…and I just love it! Cheerful and happy, I love the idea of adding a touch of nautical flair to my wardrobe and home. Plus, it’s just so easy to do so. Between stripes, anchors, and touches of brass, this easy, chipper trend really lends itself to exploration. I’d suggest keeping the color palette traditional: crisp navy and white, bold crimson, touches of shimmery metallic, and maybe a happy sunshine yellow. Metallics can range from brassy hues to super-shiny gold. Also, don’t forget to add touches of rope detailing, quirky anchors, and iconic nautical flags. To get this look, slip into your favorite pair of crisp white jeans and silky striped shirt. Then, top off the look with a sky-high pair of espadrilles and bronze-y metallic bangles.

Nautical for the home

Laid-back and oh-so-casual, this ocean-inspired trend is the perfect look for a kitchen, family room, or sunroom, even if you’re not in proximity to the beach. Stripes are key to this look, especially when making your rug selection. To dabble in the nautical trend, try a boldly striped number with tones of watery blues and crisp white. If you’re more adventurous, opt for a truly sailor-inspired rug such as this navy anchor rug or this signal flags rug. The bold, iconic motifs are sure to give you that summery, always-on-vacation vibe.
