Nautical tapestries are a continually popular way to add style or highlight a personal hobby in your home. They are very versatile and can look good with most any decor. Tapestry makers today offer almost unlimited size and color options as well, so the size of your room will not stop you from being able to add one of these pieces of art to your home.
Tapestries have been around since ancient Greece, when they were used to illustrate the great stories and myths of the day. In medieval times, tapestries hung in castles telling tales of heroes and conquerors. Today, nautical tapestries can help you tell your own tales or drift away on your imagination when hung on your home’s walls. Here are 3 decor ideas for you to add a nautical wall hanging to your home:
One obvious place to hang nautical tapestries is in a nautically themed room. Using a nautical tapestry to enrich and add texture in a room like this is particularly nice, since most other nautical items are slick or metal in nature. The fabric of your nautical tapestry will contrast nicely with oars, model boats, a spyglass, and framed maps. Or maybe you would like a tapestry made of your map or of your prized model ship. Turning such one-of-a-kind items into a tapestry for your collector’s room can be visually striking and can become a family heirloom.
Other rooms in your home will look especially nice with nautical tapestries, as well. Your study, library, or home office can benefit from the warmth and texture a tapestry can provide. Nautical tapestries are also classy additions to your lounge or bar area. For a rustic look, a tapestry of an old sailing map would fit nicely. A nautical tapestry would also be nice in an older child’s room whose interests do not include wallpapering their room with sports figures or rock stars. A beach sunset tapestry might be a good choice for their room.
You can also decorate throughout your home with nautical tapestries. Remember, today’s tapestry makers will custom-make tapestries to almost any size and color palate. If you would like a nautical tapestry to hang on your living room wall, consider a schooner sailing into a sunset. If your room’s color palate is purple with yellow accents. If you are decorating a library or den, a simple line drawing of a ship that has been turned into a tapestry is elegant. Also consider nautical tapestries showing ships in port. If you are a world traveler (or just want to be), tapestries showing different ports, from famous cities to anonymous fishing villages, would be striking when hung throughout your home.
So there you have it.
Nautical tapestries are very versatile design agents. With today’s customization of tapestries, you can add a customized nautical tapestry to your home. Whether your interest is fishing, sailing, or building models of the wondrous sailing vessels of days gone by, there can be a nautically themed tapestry that will fit perfectly with the decor of any room.
