Like a hunting theme, a nautical theme can too easily tip toward the cliche. Just as the hunting theme calls up images of a glass-eyed bear standing in the corner, the nautical theme is known for their stuffed and mounted swordfish and polished teak ship wheels. Yet it is such a promising interior design, with elements that invoke a shared seafaring past or the exotic white sands and lazy summer days of vacation days long passed. Perhaps this is why it is so heartening that nautical design is experiencing a resurgence in popularity. Today, more interior designers than ever are looking to the sea for inspiration while managing to avoid those tired decorating cliches, and home furniture and decor stores are following in the trend.

Why are nautical themes rising in popularity again? Perhaps it is best summed up with John Masefield’s words, “I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,” from the classic poem, Sea Fever. There is something about the ocean that affects many of us on a visceral and comforting level, and a well-designed nautical home decor theme calls on that shared love of exploration and seafaring that drove our ancestors to explore the world. For others, the nautical theme calls up memories of happy family vacations and childhood play. Whatever the association, the nautical theme is one that manages to enjoy both an enduring timeless appeal and a cyclical return to creative reinterpretation and popularity.
