Fashion and home decor trends go hand-in-hand, whatever is popular on the runway will quickly become popular in home decor. The spring summer 2012 runways showcased various trends, including ‘nautical’- a trend that has come and gone throughout the years for some designers, but is a yearly staple for others such as Tommy Hilfiger and Jean Paul Gaultier. Nautical fashion comes in many different degrees, from a classic striped top and red lips a la Gaultier to full blown nautical inspired outfits from YSL.
A nautical inspired home decor scheme can be classic and timeless if executed correctly. The base colours of the nautical trend, navy and white are classic hues that can be used in any style from traditional to minimalist, with the fun addition of yellow or red as accent colours, a nautical space can be very dynamic. Classic nautical stripes can be used as a pattern on many items from throw cushions, to a sofa and even as a wall treatment. Here we have featured some of the nautical-inspired home decor pieces from Mountain Home Decor: Wooden spindle candle sticks, a gold rope-inspired mirror, silver & glass rectangular lanterns, red throw – for a great pop of colour, a woven wicker pouf which can be used as a stool or sidetable, the ‘mimi’ sofa in a cream linen fabric, classic wooden-cross back side chair, assorted nautical vases in white & navy, silver decorative anchor, assorted blue, white & yellow printed throw cushions, a blue & white checked slipper chair, a water-inspired print rug, decorative silver sailboat and a brass & glass lamp.
