    I have photos lighthouses and ocean scenes. I also made a wreath of shells we gathered on our vacatoons. How about a shadow box of star fish

    A great place to find ideas is Pinterest. All you have to do is put in nautical theme and you'll get some unique ideas.

    Maybe a drift wood type mantel piece (or posed to look like one), an imitation wheel for steering a ship, or ocean print with ship in it on wall and small nautical decor on small shelves around it like sea shells etc, mini light house, mini brass ship, or whatever you like

    Have you thought of hanging a fishing net on the wall, then attach some shells and nautical items to it.

    I love nautical decor! There are soooo many options in this area. I just recently started doing my master bedroom & bath and it made me realize just how drab the other rooms look. Because of that I am considering doing the guest bath in all things nautical but I also considered just going ahead and biting the bullet and doing nautical theme/decor in my living room and kitchen as instead. The rooms are very open to each other and since it is a very open floor plan I think that the decor would look best if matched. I started on Google and searched different things on the topic Nautical home decor, the possibilities are endless! The first thing that got my attention was light fixtures! The lantern type lamps and light covers that go over existing light bulbs are perfect. This room looks like it could be a bedroom?? Bedding would be something that definitely could be addressed if I am correct to make a huge statement. Pillow shams with anchors, boat wheels, pelicans, sailboats, just whatever you love would be perfect addition to add that nautical look that you are looking for by adding new pillows. I recently bought a few new kitchen towels with beautiful crabs. Once I saw them, I knew that I MUST have I love the navy blue or the marine blue with an anchor pattern. I love a color palette of blue, white, and gold or silver. I've added shiplap to the master bathroom wall. I did a complete wall and I have enough left over for the guest bath to do the bottom half and I believe that would tie whatever I come up with to decor together perfectly! White shiplap! 😍 What's not perfect about shiplap and nautical anything right?! One of my all time favorite things nautical is the wooden disstressed signs that you can put your nautical address on! You can Google your exact coordinates anywhere in the world. I also just completed a sign I purchased from Michael's craft store that was a blank unfinished wooden oar that I painted and distressed using white chalk paint and added (by making a stencil with my vinyl machine) our last name with rowing in the same direction since, and the year we were married under that. I glued a greyish blue colored starfish above the name that was the same color as the letters. Hope these ideas inspire you to make something beautiful! I hope you'll share what you come up with!

    Have you ever tried sponging? Really fun and looks good depending on what you want....or you could gather some sea shells and maybe fishing net and add those to your wall

    Take a cheap wall clock and wind sisal rope around the outside adhering with hot glue, make a shadow box and put sea shells in it, hang fishing gear on the wall, etc.

    Probably the least expensive while being the most expansive would be to hang a chart of the nearest body of water! I just recently framed these nautical prints that I found (free) in an old book. Look for prints of pictures of the ocean, We live near the ocean so of course paintings of it are very easy to find in this area. My artist husband also does woodworking and so we have half hull models, a large sail boat model, we also bought some sail boat blue prints at an auction, we have random things also, like a ships wheel and a brass propeller. You have a large space so I would caution about being too ditzy with what you display there. You want your things to make a big impact.

    texturized my focal wall with putty and lightly sanded it and painted it my favorite color teal! Made this tiny room look bigger and it would look good with a few floating shelves and beach pic! Low cost and hope this helps with ideas!
