Create a Private Island Getaway with Nautical Decor
Does your home decor reflect your personality and lifestyle? If it doesn’t even come close, when was the last time you updated? Nearly half of the people in the United States admitted they hadn’t updated their living space in 5 years. While some people may find comfort in the familiar, others need to mix it up on a regular basis.
Whether you live along the coast or just love all things nautical, does your home interior reflect this? If you find yourself feeling gloomy or unhappy with your surroundings, it’s time to update your decor! Did you know that most Americans would rather shop for their home than buy shoes? This is true for both men and women, so perhaps it’s past time to go shopping.
A recent survey showed that only 20% of Americans feel happy with their home interiors. Another 14% admitted that their home furnishings gave rise to gloomy feelings. While you may not spend as much time at home as you would like, wouldn’t it be preferable to create a space that you look forward to seeing?
Since you have a love for nautical decor, there are so many easy ways to add a fresh look to one or more of your rooms, decks, or patio areas. You can mount a nautical wheel on the wall in your den or use it as a focal point on your deck. Surround it with other nautical items such as a life preserver and glass buoys encased in rustic rope netting.
Pirate decor is fun, too, and is sure to bring a smile to your face. If you don’t have a real-life parrot, you can still purchase a perch and a toy parrot to create that ambiance. Be sure to find one that also squawks to liven up your next party.
Speaking of parties . . . Won’t you be much more likely to entertain when you feel good about your home’s appearance? Since themed parties can be so much fun, be sure to let everyone know you’re having a nautical-themed costume party. Just imagine the looks on their faces when they see you take the helm at your nautical wheel in a pirate captain’s costume!
