If there’s one thing nautical and country decor has in common is the natural touch. One may look rather modern with the coastal design, and one is more rustic with the traditional element. Still, both also have the airy and simplicity elements, contriving the details into the err on the side of nature. There are ways to blend the two styles of decor in your house, which will result in an appealing look.
Decorative wooden flooring with a coastal vibe
The simplest way to bring out nautical touch in country decor is installing wooden floors using distressed planks of woods painted in rustic white and blue. It creates rustic details while maintaining the main element of coastal shade; if you want a more homey feeling, add an area rug made of jute that is sturdy and highly functional.
Architectural embellishments take your house decoration to another level with some interesting details. Installing wide shiplap, attached either horizontally or vertically with wide boards shows a true traditional farmhouse country décor. However, it also makes an authentic appeal in any beach house, too. Have natural embellishments like rustic moldings showcasing a craftsman artistic work.
Surrounding your country home decor with natural palettes speaks country, but you can also blend it with a nautical touch. Watery colors like blues, teals, and greens, are available in a variety of shades for you to work with. Consider choosing the natural colored furniture in a cream-painted or brown-colored wallpaper surrounding.
Creating layers with fabrics lets your fun personality shine, and it is one of the easiest elements to change or decorate. Place the fabric on the table, couch, or as your window treatment; choose one that is sheer and light to have an airy feeling and illustrates a nautical touch.
