Nautical bedding is a great way to decorate any bedroom for any age. While it is a theme that used to be commonly advertised to boys, it need not be gender specific anymore.
Nautical does not just mean obvious colors like red, blue, and white; although most boys would delight having a bedroom with this type of bedding. Neither does it have to have a traditional look to it; only your imagination limits how whimsical and eclectic you can go with this theme!
For a feminine room, think of colors of the sea and the ocean. For example sand, aqua, teal, turquoise and pale yellows are sure to be a delight for girls. Colors of sea life, such as shades of coral, are sure to please females of all ages. Seashell prints are very popular as well. For younger girls you can’t go wrong with mermaids.
Not only can you create your bed in a nautical theme with striped linens, but nautical bedding comes in many wonderful patterns as well. Lighthouses are not only a popular collective accessory, but have now made themselves at home as print on bedding. Adult rooms can get a trim update with a lighthouse theme and a cool blue paint job! Boat prints are well liked with boys, as are rudder prints. Sailing flags also make for sea-worthy bedding.
For a more traditional and neutral look, different shades of simple blue striped bedding on crisp white sheets can finish off a great nautical theme as well. The same look can be achieved with red and white stripes. Add a wallpaper border of ships a-sailing, and your room will be ready for adventure!
