Nautical bedding is a wise choice for anyone who wants to create an ocean theme or design in their bedroom. Decorating a bedroom with the blues of the tropical ocean can re-create the same feelings experienced on a trip or vacation. Beach themed, white rattan furnishings often finish the “look”. Since bedding and window treatments are commonly the focal point of the room, selecting them is very important.
Nautical themes bring fresh, crisp decorating options to a room. Soothing retreat-like settings are created easily with seacoast motifs and waves stitched into sea-like colors and patterns. Images of beaches and the tropics on sheets, comforters, duvets, throws and pillows create a tranquil atmosphere. A well-earned nap or simply escaping from reality for a moment would come more easily when enjoying sheets and bedding that help the imagination sail away on the waves of sleep.
Guest rooms and master bedrooms have a refreshing feel when decorated with sea-foam and sea-shell colors. Rooms accessorized with items suggestive of global travel portray a sense of the exotic when coupled with nautical sheets and bedding as the focus. Just a few changes will create the sense of a paradise vacation in a bedroom. For example, photographs of past trips can be printed on bedding using modern technology. Such an unusual and distinctive collage would be impossible to replicate.
Patches of material printed with beach-signs and coastal patterns, life-guard stands, shells and coral combine to make extraordinarily stunning quilts. Surfing motifs and striped designs convert a room into a space reminiscent of leisurely moments spent at the shore. If one is looking for a relaxing motif, the subtle suggestion of a trip by the sea will help to achieve that goal.
Bedding in soft pastel colors and different shades of blue can create the illusion of an island oasis in any home. Imaginations can soar away to thoughts of warm, tropical islands, coastal breezes, sunshine and lush vegetation in a room decorated with new sheets, pillow shams and duvet. Palm trees, shimmering waves and sand-dunes printed on bedding can remind one of their special allure.
A child’s room can become an area of sun-filled days of pretend sea-faring adventure. Wave designs, anchor motifs, stars and stripes can provide worthy backgrounds for hours of play. Children can pretend to sail away on pirate voyages and dive for buried treasure. These adventure-filled play areas can easily be converted to comfy sleeping zones when duvet covers are quilted with, or printed in, patterns depicting boats with sails, pirate ships and buried treasure-chests, etc.
Pillows, pillow-cases and pillow-shams resembling items used at sea can turn into exciting play toys. Nautical tools used by play-pirates might consist of compass-shaped stuffed material with pointers that actually spin, soft steering wheels sewn onto a bedspread and pirate-hat shaped cushions. A variety of other stuffed-toy items such as fuzzy yellow ducks, big whales and wave-like shapes doubling as headrests make for fanciful voyages to the pretend seas.
