A nautical theme needn’t be exclusive to homes on the coast and there is a variety of ways you can achieve this look.  Here we list 5 accessories to help you add a touch of the seaside into your home, without going overboard.


John Lewis Coastal Towels

Something as simple as a towel can have huge effects on the décor and feel of your home. Combining traditional coastal colours with a simple stripe design, John Lewis’ coastal collection of towels  reflect the comfort of living on the seaside.

This collection is a quick and easy way to add a nautical touch to your bathroom, and each towel features an embroidered boat for an added personal touch. The design helps to add a pop of colour if your bathroom has a neutral feel, without the need for repainting or to retiling! 


Novara Storage Units

Boasting charming nautical vibes, this handy storage unit from The Range features both wooden and willow drawers – perfect for your bathroom treasures. Why not add this to your bedroom furniture to bring a touch of the beach into your home.    

The calming whites and blue accents will complement a wide range of décor themes, while also proving a handy storage solution.


Cape Cod Bedspread

Add a subtle touch of the ocean to your bedroom with this luxurious cape cod bedspread from Olde Glory.

Available in stonewashed blue chambray and seersucker stripes, the bed set is hand-woven and made out of various fabrics. The differing textures on its alternating stripes creates an expensive feel to the room. Pair this with some subtle blue accessories to create a laid-back vibe, perfect for you to unwind in after a stressful day.  


Swirl of Fish wall art

A nautical theme just wouldn’t be the same without fish.

If you’re looking to dip your toe in the ocean and try an aquatic theme, this wall art from Sand and Seagulls is a good place to start.

Its eye-catching spiral design features 16 fish and is perfect for adding marine-themed vibes in your home. It's subtle effect allows you to experiment with design and play about with the theme. You can choose to stick to the one accessory or go all out and add extras to take the nautical vibe further. 


Driftwood Mirror

This beautiful, unique mirror from The Beach Hut is handmade from sea-worn driftwood and captures the enchanting aroma of the seaside.

Given its large size – approximately 83cm in diameter – this mirror is a striking focal point for a coastal living room.
