Maritime is a mixture of nautical and industrial combined, it’s a look that has grabbed hold of the interior world this past year and it’s so easy to replicate. Think rustic fisherman lighting together with replica wooden ship wheels and distressed metal pulleys. It’s less beach chic and more gritty industrialism. Here are our 5 easy steps to give your interiors a Maritime Makeover.
Maritime Interiors – Bulk Head & Port Holes
Recreate the look of a fisherman’s boat by choosing round bulkhead and port hole style wall lighting. Contemporary interpretations such as our Mole Round Bulkhead Outdoor Wall Light will give a nostalgic nautical touch. For a feature wall add other round wall accessories such as photo frames and mirrors. Keeping to round wall accessories will add to the nautical effect. Combining industrial and vintage will really emphasise the rustic notion of Maritime nostalgia too, so be sure to include some distressed and rustic additions.
Maritime Interiors – Fisherman Pendants
Fisherman Pendants are all the range again this year. Whether its a glass domed lantern or a caged metal shade. Adding some maritime memorabilia has never been so easy. Litecraft offer a range of fisherman style ceiling pendants from simple easy to fit lanterns to pulley operated rise and fall fittings. This style of lighting usually features a large domed shade that will give a wide scope of light and is cast in a durable metal. Double up over a Kitchen island for a statement look and a practical illumination or suspend in the hallway for a grand entrance.
Maritime Interiors – Searchlight Style Floor Lamps
Large headed floor lamps that resemble searchlights and industrial spotlights will give you room that nautical talking point. The robust shade and tripod base adds a quirky and unique touch. Place in the corner of your room to give a wide spread of light or over reading corners for a practical illumination. Our Paramount Industrial Tripod Table Lamp features a robust polished nickel finish and a large glass spotlight shade giving a soft ambience to your chosen room.
Maritime Interiors – Nautical Striped Shades
To layer up your Maritime interior add table lamps together with nautical and fisherman ornaments. Striped accessories, anchors, rowing paddles and nautical knot ropes will do the trick. Adding shades of blue such as navy and hints of black and grey will reinforce the maritime effect too. Our Black Striped Easy to Fit Shade and table lamp base will add a touch of nautical. Place together with more rustic accessories to complete the maritime memory.
Maritime Interiors – Shore Blue Bedding
Finally, when creating a maritime look in the bedroom choose a mixture of sandy whites, sea blues and greens. Our Waves Duvet Set features a contemporary layered border of creams, aqua blues and teals in a scalloped wave design.
Does the Maritime interior style float your boat or are you a more beachy sun-bleached fan?
