Decorative essentials for a waterfront interior

How about a change of scenery with maritime decoration? Very trendy for a waterfront interior, blue and white colours, natural materials and sea objects are perfect to decorate your holiday home. For a warm, natural, cheerful cocoon in holiday mode, find all our tips for transforming your interior!

Essential 1: Raw materials for authentic maritime decoration

The right choice of materials is essential for a natural and original maritime decoration! For a warm and cocooning spirit, introduce elements of driftwood, a smooth and clear natural material that you can easily find on the beach or in the surrounding area.

Sea rush, a very resistant natural fibre, is also widely used in waterside decoration and will enable you to dress up your holiday home, especially your floors, for a water-resistant decoration.

To bring softness to your room and remind you of the interior of boats, you can opt for a bleached wood floor. However, be careful about the room in which you place it because the floor is not water resistant and gets damaged by salt. For spaces with a lot of traffic, opt for tiles (sand-coloured or mosaic tiles for more originality), a safe bet for maritime decoration and very robust.

Essential 2: Colours for a waterfront interior

What could be better than neutral colours to remind you of the beach? White, linen, beige, light grey and terracotta will give your room a warm and authentic feel.

But maritime decoration is also a sublime shade of blue that recalls the tones of the ocean and echoes escape and well-being.

For a decoration with maritime tones, choose furniture by Flavio POLI, Charles and Ray EAMES or Einar JOHANSEN.

Essential 3: Furniture for a 100% beach atmosphere

For a warm decoration, take particular care in the choice of your lights. Choose lamps made of natural materials such as rattan or driftwood for a more original and fresh effect. For hanging lights and wall lamps, choose wicker and bamboo to bring relief and a natural look to your room.

Rattan furniture is very trendy in summer decoration and brings a touch of style to our interiors. Table, chair, TV stand… rattan is available in a variety of original ways!

Choose a large rattan armchair by Rohe NOORDWOLDE, Dirk VAN SLIEDREGT or Janine ABRAHAM and Dirk JAN ROL to enjoy the sunny days and decorate it with a pretty blue and white striped fouta for a guaranteed oceanic style.

If wood and rattan furniture are essential for seaside decoration, coloured furniture is also trendy. Of course it is not about bright colours like green or red but pastel colours like sky blue, pastel yellow or pastel green which are colours close to the marine environment. For example, you can choose a sideboard or a chest of drawers by Jiri JIROUTEK.

To accentuate the holiday effect, install hanging armchairs like those by Nanna DITZEL or a hammock in coloured fabric or macramé to decorate your terrace, your living room or your reading corner. Perfect your decor with a number of patterned cushions.
