Coordinating your space is perfect when you want to incorporate a modern twist. Add unique lighting and metallic touches to bring your decor back to life even when you have gone with a minimalist decor option.
When it comes to using a color scheme blue and white is the way to go. However, the key is color coordinating your entire space with these two colors. They are subtle, and charming while providing a range of different options to choose from including bold patterns and simple prints.
Mismatched fabrics are always a good idea when you want to go bold and bright yet don’t want to use one simple decor. Combing multiple different fabrics will make the space appear larger while sticking to the nautical theme. Consider adding bits of red with a thick red fabric.
