101 Indoor Nautical Style Lighting Ideas

indoor nautical lighting

Indoor nautical lighting is one of the quickest ways to improve your interior decor. If you move to a home near the sea or the coast, nautical design themes are extremely popular. There’s nothing like rustic nautical decor in a home that overlooks a beautiful body of water. Everything from your accents to your bathroom decor to bedroom decor, there are a ton of options related to lighthouses, anchors, compasses, ship wheels, ships, and more.

We decided to put together indoor nautical lighting designs for inspiration. Each of the designs are pulled from Houzz with the designers, photographers, or architects noted under the photo. You can click on the photos to see photos from the designs or more from that Houzz profile. We included rope lamps, nautical lighting, pendant lights, built-in lights, and more. If you are stuck and trying to decorate your home, this will definitely help give you new ideas. We absolutely love nautical homes so we couldn’t be happier that you are using those themes.
