22 Ideas for Nautical Home Decor

Summer breezes are heading this way, and we are craving some sand in between our toes and salt in our hair. Bring coastal style to your home with these beautiful decor ideas whether you live by the sea or just want to infuse some summer into your home all year long. With fresh pastel color palettes, natural textures like weathered wood and a nautical accent or two, your home will start feeling like summer vacation in no time.

1. The Oyster Catcher: Light wood is a perfect accent to coastal decor because of its gray undertones, rugged appeal and durability for all those family gatherings. Believe it or not, this pristine home in Cornwall, England is available to rent! So if you don’t have summer plans yet, we can’t think of a prettier place to stay! (via Desire to Inspire)
