Proof indeed are these fabulous nautical-inspired outdoor decks, patios and porches we found – plus creative DIY decor projects to set sail with. Welcome aboard!
Nautical-themed Outdoor Decor Inspiration + Ideas
It’s amazing how a nautical nook takes shape with stylish use of striped patterns, sisal rope, weathered wood, anchors, buoys, lanterns, lifesavers – all in a breezy color palette of navy to sky blue with splashes of red! How to pull this off? Read on below!
Using Wood and Rope
Recycle wood pieces into a clever buoy decor wreath (1) to welcome all to your ship-themed refuge. And convert a wooden pallet into a DIY anchor sign (2) to hang on your patio wall.
Sisal rope can be woven into an all-weather DIY rope rug (3) or knotted into “monkey fist” rope balls (4) – both charming decor ideas for your sea-worthy spot.
Using Stencils and Stripes
Create a striking base for your nautical getaway with stencil-striped deck flooring (5) in blue and white, or a stencilled faux outdoor “rug” (6) with a woven rope design. Then, add coordinated outdoor furniture, a patio umbrella, and assorted throw pillows for a truly inviting setting!
Stencils, too, work their makeover magic on nautical-themed furniture pieces (7) that you can add to your outdoor space. Note the wall-mounted lifesavers and a bright colored beach towel as accents, too.
Entertaining + Lounging Ideas
Of course, you’ll be wanting to lounge around with snacks and drinks on hand, as well as have family and friends over for a cookout or cocktails. So assemble a table for casual, outdoor dining laid with DIY striped canvas covers and comfy pillows (8).
Alongside, have a beverage station (9) with a retro cooler stocked with ice-cold drinks, and a DIY console (11) for enjoying an outdoor buffet. For serving, use a DIY nautical tray (10) that you’ve crafted for all of $5!
How’s that for sailing the high seas in the comfort of your own backyard getaway?
