home: trend [ maritime ]

home: trend [ maritime ]

The new ‘maritime’ trend has a far softer and subtle feel than nautical trends of the past.

Still with a feel of being in and around the sea coast but through textures, colours, patterns and imprints as opposed to more obvious use of rope, anchors and red, blue and white.

The colours are washed out blues, sandy beiges, dirty whites and with metallic hints to give an edge of boat engines, rusty hand rails and anchor chains and using natural weave in rugs, runners and chair seats; as a nod to sailors rope.

There’s much layering in textures and fabrics, with patterns of stripe, weave and linear illustration alike to shell patterns.

Add in collected nicknacks from travels, clusters of vases and stick to natural fabrics and surfaces – wood, wicker, bamboo, cotton, wool and silk.
