Tips and Tricks: Sailor Style

22. 06. 2016

We all know the popular blue and white  colour combination. We’ve it seen on fabric with vertical stripes or even  wooden decorations, but only a few of us have realized that the sea has served as an inspiration for all of these elements.


Nautical style is simple and chic. It’s perfect for both fancy and casual events, and it can serve as a gorgeous design to decoration your home, or office. There are no doubts that the marine motif is very popular, but why exactly?

The first reason is because sailor style is associated with water and sky – two simple and beautiful elements in the world.

Secondly, a nautical decoration usually includes blue, brown, or white. Blue is the color that makes us calm and sets us in a relaxed and pleasant mood. Brown is linked to seriousness, stability, and good structure, while white tones are associated with purity, simplicity, and sincerity.

And lastly, nautical style is also appreciated because it is the mother of the stripe print. If a room is small, it can benefit from a wall mural with horizontal stripes, while if a room needs to appear smaller, it can be slimmed down with vertical stripes.


If you’re relaxed and inspired by the sea, start by discovering our nautical themed posters and take a note of these tips and tricks:

  1. Use pastel blue in your bedroom to create the ultimate feeling of relaxation and combine it with light, white coloured pictures.
  2. In the kitchen, use more severe army blue tones and combine them with wooden kitchen tools.
  3. In the living room, try placing a few ship decorations over the fireplace and add a few photos of your favourite sailing trips.
  4. In the children’s room, use the clever combination of red and blue, which works both for boys and girls.
  5. Use a good lighting in all of your rooms – this trick will not only look great, but will also create the feeling as if you’re always closer to the sea. The more light comes into a room, the closer a person feels connected to nature and is more motivated to achiever his or her dreams.
