The nautical look burst on the cultural scene in the ’20s. And its self-assured cachet has been making us feel smart ever since. In the height of the summer, does anything look as crisp as stripes? Or as brisk as cool blues?
Just as nautical couture is making a splash, the maritime look is having its moment in home decor, too. The quintessential stripe goes big and bold for a compelling statement. Patterned rugs have latticework that suggest boating knots. Navy outdoor throw pillows anchor the look with a splash of color and whimsy.
The new nautical is the classic sailor-chic reimagined – polished, but not overly preppy. The items here are ideas so spirited, they’ll be making waves on your patio for summers to come.
