Nautical Inspired Living Room

Dorm-room style living room

My client spent many years in the Navy and I wanted to reflect her service in her new space with a nautical-inspired living room. The former living room was dark and bare bones, with cast off furnishings from their younger years. Despite my client’s initial concerns with the color choices, we made the room more personal and welcoming with a bold navy blue accent over the fireplace (Benjamin Moore Hale Navy HC-154) and a warm gold on the rest of the walls (Benjamin Moore Oat Straw AF-340), we created a relaxing retreat for her family to hang out together.

We purchased the over-sized nautical charts and had them custom framed, which helps to bring down the sky-high ceilings. We are still on the lookout for the perfect accents over the flat screen TV.

These homeowners already had great pieces and accessories, they just needed a little help putting them in the right places to give them the Folk Art look they were trying to achieve. We left the furniture in place because it worked for their entertaining lifestyle but pulled in accessories from other rooms and brought in some new accessories to pull the room together.

Living Room After Re-Design

This client already had lots of great pieces of primitive folk art, she just wasn’t sure how to arrange them to get the look she wanted. After scouring pages from magazines and catalogs she liked, we created her perfect folk art look.
