Life on the water, the feeling of freedom and the natural beauty of the sea enchant everyone.
"Finally I was free! I dissolved in the sea, became white sails and flying spray, became beauty and rhythm, moonlight and the ship and the tall, star-studded shimmering sky. "(Eugene O'Neill)
When you read these poetic words, you automatically fall into a passionate flood of feelings, dreams, thoughts or memories of your own, lived stories that took place at some point by the sea. After salt and sun smelling, fresh air, relaxed time for yourself, lost in thought in the endless waves and vastness of the sea. You can experience this lightness and the genuine happiness of the simple things in life again and again in your own four walls. All you need to do is set up your home for the maritime style. With colors that are mainly found in the blue and white color palette, and home accessories, as they are known only from the coasts. We'll show you how it works!
Living room in maritime furnishing style
White can convey the impression of sobriety and objectivity, but also a feeling of lightness. Blue has, depending on the color, a cool or mysterious appearance. White blends perfectly with most colors, creating a timeless backdrop to furniture and furnishings. Wooden floorboards as a wall covering or flooring are reminiscent of houses by the sea and offer a beautiful sight. With matt lacquer they get a delicate appearance, but also treated with lime wax or painted with thin emulsion paint. Another alternative to the sea-inspired décor is ceramic floor and wall tiles, which are now available in many shapes and colors.
Design living rooms in maritime colors
Holiday memories are awakened by inserting smaller tile shards, smooth, round stones or shells into damp concrete and thus creating an original pattern or a self-made enclosure.
When choosing fabrics, the naturalness is in the foreground. Linen, cotton or canvas striped in blue and white, plaid or plain as well as faded shades of green, yellow and pink create an atmosphere of beach, sky and sun. Natural fibers such as bast or hemp also fit well into the maritime theme. Ideally, when the weather is fine, the windows in your home often stay wide open, because the light fabrics will move gently in the tiniest wind and together with the sunshine will make for a good summer mood. Also flowers that are easy to arrange in glass vases look very lively. All sorts of green grasses as well as sun and sand-loving cacti are suitable for the look of the sea.
Beach and sea in your own four walls
In the bedroom you can put a simple, white bed through a canopy of blue and white striped linen cloth immediately into the scene. The bathroom offers numerous design options for a maritime style. The basis for this are wall and floor tiles in marine colors and corresponding motifs. Herbal soaps are very common in Provence, and their characteristic shapes and colors are a scary eye-catcher for every bathroom. On the tiled floor, a soft bathroom carpet in soft sand colors will fit very well, which will always produce the feeling of warm, soft sand under your feet with every contact with the skin.
You can also get the maritime flair on the terrace or the balcony. An awning spreads summer mood and protects not only from the sun, but with impregnated surface also from rain. Comfortable wicker chairs with simple fabric cushions provide relaxation and remind of life on the water.
The various coastal regions offer a variety of different design options. It all depends on what you like the most. For example, the English coastal style is represented by decorative iron ornaments on verandas and terraces or garden furniture. The popular, Mediterranean style impresses with the intensity of its colors. Strong sunlight and the azure blue of the water form the deposit for diverse living ideas and facilities. White, blue and ocher play the most important role. White as a symbol of purity can be found on the facades of the houses. Blue, the color of the sea and the sky, is used on windows, windowsills, doors and furniture in all shades and also ocher, the color of the earth, is always present.

Or do you have a preference for the Pacific or Caribbean style? Tropical influences characterize this furnishing style and are expressed in very strong, pure colors such as pink, purple or grass green. They can be combined without hesitation and give the apartment an individual and cheerful atmosphere. The furniture impresses with its simplicity and is thus subordinated to the bold colors.
Whichever maritime furnishing style you choose, one thing is certain - each one carries the freedom and joie de vivre of the open sea.
