Nautical Decor Ideas

Coastal outdoor kitchen

1. Entertaining lifestyle: Summer kitchens are perfect for those who enjoy cooking outdoors as well as entertaining. Determine how often you enjoy cooking outdoors, and what size area you can dedicate to adding a summer kitchen.

2. Access to amenities: Summer kitchens that have several amenities get used more often. Amenities such as cooking grills, griddles, rotisseries can make your cooking experience enjoyable. Summer kitchens that have sinks, refrigerators, freezers and wine coolers can help the avid cook avoid running back inside the main house.

3. Lounge area: Don’t forget about the lounging and leisure area for your guests. Determine what type of outdoor seating will suit your needs, movable lounge chairs and tables are ideal for versatility. Make sure the seating area is not too far from the summer kitchen area for guest interaction, but too close for smoke to affect your guests.

4. Budget: Having a budget set will keep you from guessing and running out of money.

Follow these 5 easy tips from top designers to spring into a fresh nautical design.

Light and airy white coastal slipcover living room

1. Scan the space you want to update. This should be a quick scan of the room. Pick the first three things that bother you and use this as your starting point. This forces you to prioritize the top things to change, rather than leaving you feeling overwhelmed with an long, taxing list. This will make each room list easier to tackle.

2. Fresh White. Bring in white decor like a slipcover sofa or chair to freshen up the space and create the base of your coastal canvas for Spring.

3. Liven your space with new throw pillowsCoastal throw pillows can add a bright pop of color without having to commit to a color change on the walls. This can liven up a design with pattern and excitement that spring brings.

4.Keep It Airy and Light. Remove heavy drapes and replace them with sheer materials. You want the sun to shine in and fill your room with natural light.

5. Play with Punches of Yellow. Nothing sings "spring" like the color yellow. A large white bowl or tall glass vase of lemons can add instant spring style into any room. Lemons are a fresh, inexpensive style accessory that are also readily on hand for cooking! So add a pop of sunshine with yellow accents.
