home: trend [ Fresh Nautical ]
The Nautical trend is back, but this time with a more simple feel. It’s less about marine animals, rope features and bunting, and focuses on stripes [ of varying width ] and subtle hints to the sea through ceramics and soft furnishings.
This trend shouldn’t make your room look themed. Cushions are a great place to start – mix and match different prints, or maybe place a searchlight inspired light in the corner of a room to get the look .
Colours to think about are Blue, Red, White and Grey, and fabrics are very utilitarian [ Linens and Wools ].
