Don’t Forget to Take Your Decor to the Floor!

Whether you’ve pushed your nautical decorating theme to the max with a boat shaped bed and cabinets, or whether you’ve just gone full on nautical with a room’s patterns and window coverings, you’ll want to consider a funky nautical area rug to finish off the look!

When we think of flooring, our tendency is to think conservatively. Let’s face it, it takes a level of bravery to introduce a bold area rug that features photos or funky patterns into our decorating scheme. However, don’t be shy! There are ways to feature busy, artistic area rugs into a space without theme-over-kill.

Here are some fundamentals to consider when you’re choosing a funky nautical area rug:

Mixed Nautical Features on an Area Rug

Popular Seascape Rug – Comes in 5 Sizes

  1. If you’re choosing a very busy colorful area rug, and there’s already a great deal of pattern in your furnishings, bedding or drapes, position the rug where it’s away from those busy pieces – If the room is large enough, put that busy area rug in another part of the room. In other words, evenly distribute your patterns around the room.
  2. Get your color palette down to three or four main choices max
  3. If your nautical area rug features a pattern, remember the general rule about ‘scaling’ when mixing patterns – What is ‘scaling’? You can mix a smaller scaled pattern in the same color family with a larger scaled pattern in the same color family – In other words don’t select a large scale patterned rug if there’s large scale patterns in other decor items sitting near or on top of that area rug
  4. You can mix patterns – If the room is large enough you can get away with 3 to 5 different patterns. Just remember the rule about keeping your colors down to three or four, and of course, the rule described above about ‘scaling’.
