Inspirations on the Horizon: Rooms with nautical elements

Nautical elements have been found in design for ages, sailors brought home ship parts or trinkets as memorabilia of time spent at sea. These days designers covet the authentic nautical finds at salvage yards and antique stores. For the novice just trying to give their home a sea worthy feel, you can find replica items in many decor shops. Whether it is a simple seashell sitting a top your fireplace mantle or a porthole mirror in your foyer, you can't go wrong with adding a little nautical touch to your home.

This gorgeous fireplace surrounding created out of seashells is stunning with the brown paint color and white shells.

The headboard was created from a sail, giving this bedroom a breezy coastal feel.

The breakfast nook is stylish with it's ship style table bolted to the floor as if the space was a moving vessel.

This coastal room is white and open with the wall of windows looking out to the water and the blue and white nautical pillows strewn across the white built in sofa.
