Nautical Curtains

Nautical curtain patterns help bring the feel of the beach and the ocean inside of the home, reminding you that you’re never too far from the ocean. Curtains remain the key to setting the nautical feel in any room of your home. Consider large white and blue striped curtains. You can choose to have stripes run horizontal or vertical for this style, or even incorporate red stripes as well. While stripes remain the most common nautical curtain pattern, any blue and white pattern can help to create a nautical mood in your home.

While anchors remain a popular nautical pattern, other popular patterns include seahorses, seashells, lighthouses, and starfish. Valences with these same patterns are also very popular for this design style. The nautical style offers a wide variety of patterns and options for curtains allowing you to tailor it to your favorite aspect of this theme.

Curtain Rods and Finials

What are nautical finials? Homeowners place these decorative pieces placed on the ends of a curtain rod. Nautically themed finials incorporate many beach or marine motifs. Finials can transform a normal curtain rod into a rustic piece as well ensure that your curtains do not slip. Common nautical finials include sailboats, sand dollars, seashells, rope knots, ship wheels, and starfish. Ideally, homeowners should select finials with the same style as the curtain rod. It may be easier to find finials you like and then find a curtain rod to match it.

Common styles to choose from include wood, pewter, bronze, antiqued metal, patina, or rustic style. To enhance the nautical design, you may choose to use a twisted rope curtain rod.  Nautical curtain rods can transform your room by adding a touch of the rugged shoreline to your décor. Curtain rods can also help to accentuate your nautical curtains and add a nautical touch to simple mono-colored curtains.

Curtain Tiebacks

Curtain tiebacks are a great way to enhance a nautical interior design style in your home. One of the most common tiebacks is a white, off-white, or brown rope with a nautical knot. There are many types of rope and knot styles available allowing you to tailor it to your home and individual design. Many of these rope tiebacks also incorporate other beach motifs. For example, you can purchase rope tiebacks with starfish, seashells, or anchors attached to the ropes.
