The nautical aesthetic has experienced a bit of a renaissance in recent years, and no piece of decor or furniture is more suited to a nautical vibe than your lighting. From a ship’s chandelier to nautical spotlights in your bedrooms, lounge, hallway or bedside, lamps made from rope or coral are an easy way to add that vibe to any room. All you need is a sea chest, some blue-white pillows, and a coffee table made from recycled wood and you can practically smell the salty breeze already.Lampshades
When you turn a lamp on it fills the whole room, but in order to manage that nautical aesthetic you need to manage the light levels. The ship-style spotlights are bright and intense and get away with that because they have a very strong nautical theme to their design, but you can’t light up a home with just those: you’d hurt your eyes! No, in order to maintain the right atmosphere as well as a friendly, practical way of lighting up your home, you’ll be relying on nautical lamps with lampshades a lot. These lampshades range in colour from dark brown to the classical blue and white, so some thought is required here to match them with the rest of your interior.Other Styles
The nautical aesthetic is a strong and specific one, and you might not want it for every room in your house. There are other styles of home decor with their own range of lamps and mood lighting that can let you theme your home room by room. Once you’ve disembarked your sailing vessel you might suddenly find yourself in distant lands, for example, and you can theme your hallways and dining room with a nautical vibe but pick out tropical lamps and associated decor for the lounge.
