The Navy style is a decorative segment that has always had many followers, mainly in coastal cities and towns around the world, for the simple fact that it is focused on everything related to navigation and the sea. Let’s see some marine decoration ideas.
Even if you don’t live near the beach, you can give your home or apartment a nautical or beachy vibe with just a few decorating tweaks.
Take a look at the ideas that we will show you below.
Blue and white stripes are a marine decoration idea that provides a lot of freshness. They can be applied on the walls, sofa, bed, carpet or cushions. Add a beachy striped throw to your bed or sofa. The curtains can also be blue and white striped, as well as the bedding.
Wicker, rattan or sisal
Materials like wicker, rattan and sisal give the room a coastal living feel. These materials are rope-like and add texture to the space, perfect for the nautical-style effect you’re going for.

It is similar to navy blue, but slightly richer and more saturated. The color works great with wood tones, whites and blacks.
There are many trends that accompany this style, although the issue of colors is something very simple to solve. White with blue is the most typical combination. But you can also introduce beige, a lot of furniture in brown wood or wicker, and in some cases, red can come into play, although very discreetly.
