Oversized Porthole Clock
Price: $149.00 at potterybarn.com
I adore clocks, and use them as décor and accent pieces in nearly every room of my house! This one is ideal for adding a hint of the nautical theme to any of your rooms, with its porthole-inspired design and bronze finish. It requires a AA battery to run, and features the accuracy of Takane movement.
Victorian Mermaid Cast Resin Bookends
Price: $39.00 at shopplasticland.com
This set of Victorian-inspired bookends takes me back to a time when gorgeous sirens wooed sailors to rocky shores, and when they decorated the ships themselves as figureheads. This mermaid is bookishly inclined, with little interest in adoring ships or haunting sailors.
Price: $32.00 at anthropologie.com
Add the rich aroma of the sea to your bath or patio with the long-burning paraffin candle in this ceramic half-shell. It burns for up to 15 hours, and once the wax is gone, you can re-use the shell as a décor item itself, with tin shells or trinkets inside.
Price: $79.00 at potterybarn.com
Bits of coral make wonderful décor items, but it’s harmful to the delicate balance of the sea to break off living coral just for the sake of decoration, so Pottery Barn offers these life-like resin replicas instead. They’re available in white, ivory, or light blue, and look so real!
Price: $49.00 at potterybarn.com
What a perfect nautical home accessory, especially when displayed with a vintage-inspired map or globe, perhaps across the top of a low book-case? It’s made of galvanized iron and measures almost two feet tall…
Price: $129.00 at potterybarn.com
Hang this gorgeous compass star to remind yourself where your true north is, and how to navigate there. It’s spare but detailed, painted a weathered eye-catching red. This compass star is also large enough to display on its own, or as part of a maritime-themed tableau., measuring 41” across.
Distressed Wood Buoys
Price: $19.00 - $59.00 at potterybarn.com
This brightly-colored trip of hand-carved nautical markers would be a great way to add a little nautical flair to your home décor without going overboard. Display all three together on a table, or hang them from a curtain rod, or use a pair as light-weight bookends… the possibilities are endless!
“Blue Comes through” Framed Print
Price: $279.00 at acaciacatalog.com
American artist Alice Dalton Brown must live by the sea, or at least vacation there, for how else could she have captured the perfection of a light sea breeze in this painting? I have this hanging in my bedroom above my dresser to remind me of the warm summer sun, even on the coldest, snowiest of winter days.
Don’t you just love the wood buoys? I think they’d look great in a group of three on my low wood book-case… which of these nautical theme home accessories do you like best, and how would you display them? Or have you spotted another nautical theme décor item you like more? Please let me know!
