Trend: Under The Sea

Our take on Under the Sea decor looks beyond the coastline, taking inspiration from the ocean itself. Using what’s found in nature, we consider the kinds of detail and color palettes that look brilliant in your home. Deep blues, subtle grays, and fresh sea greens remain vibrant without overwhelming the room with color – perfect for those who seek a more subdued look.

This deep sea styling is a fresh approach to nautical and maritime themes – avoiding anchors, ropes and candy cane stripes in favor of quirky metallics and sea-stained glass. Read on for a treasure trove of tips and get ready to dive into our under the sea styling inspiration.

If you can’t decide whether you love oak furniture with a natural finish or if it’s painted in a bright, sunny shade, mixing and matching is a fantastic opportunity to add depth and variety to your bedroom. The curved lines of our cream-colored Bella collection emulate the splash of the ocean waves; their vintage-style handles adding an air of antiquity which compliments the art deco feel of the chandelier.

As mentioned, color is crucial for bringing Under the Sea into your home in a subtle and stylish way. See how we’ve layered various hues of blue and gray onto the bed linens for a light and airy watercolor effect to match the walls, floors and rug. The key is keeping your palette neutral and bright pops to a minimum so as not to disrupt the feeling of calm these colors bring.

Keep your treasure trove of trinkets safe in our Bella vanity table – the delicate soft curves and smooth cream color works perfectly with sea-inspired shades. For your vanity space, pair the Bella vanity table with layers of aquamarine, sea foam and oyster shades on the walls and in your chosen accessories.

Your hallway is the passage which welcomes the outside world in. Plants add life to this often neglected part of the home – we love the floating effect of suspending a few pot plants from your banister, drawing attention to a beautiful statement piece like our Shay console table. With plenty of storage space, you can hide away the clutter and display all of your favorite decorative pieces to create an inviting space.

Under the Sea dining room

Mimic the knots of a sailor’s hitch in your dining room with a collection of our Loop dining chairs – their silver stripe fabric seats even gives a subtle nod to seafaring style. The soft almond gray of the Shay 4ft dining table legs is a lovely shade to pair with the warm honey-hue of natural oak finishes.

Not only is the Shay dining table completely charming – its round surface provides an unexpected twist to the traditional dining table – but it’s also extendable, able to effortlessly welcome up to six guests to dine at once. Great for a dinner party feast.
