Nautical bedrooms

Living by a water-body usually means that some influence of that blue,white,and grey may seep into your decor. I like the idea of being true to your surroundings, the history of your place and using what is around you for inspiration in your home.

A recent post on the Completely Coastal Blog has some lovely images for chic nautical bedrooms.

Framed signal flags, striped bedding and touches of red can be replicated anywhere.

I like this blue. The framed ship print and dark tones of the wood complement each other.

Oars are beautiful. And unexpected over a bed.

I don’t see many nautical-influences in Indian coastal homes, though. Whether we live by a river (as we do) or have a glimpse of the sea, Indian apartments don’t (generally) bother with themes. Coastal homes often have colonial influences with antiques, cane furniture, dark, gleaming wood. I’d love to see a nautical home in India – do you know of any?
