Falling for Nautical Wallpaper

I'm sure you noticed, wallpaper has been back for some time now, and while the painful memories of removing tons of dated wallpaper in my house are still young, I'm falling for nautical wallpaper.

How about something bold and blue? The Wallpaper Collection by Jonathan Adler includes a variety of rope designs.

No paint or faux finish could ever achieve this fun Nautical Look, with a zillion signal flags. Spotted in a cottage featured at Country Living.

In the same cottage (as seen in the reflection of the mirror above), you also find a space covered with the maritime wallpaper by Hinson. The flags might be by Hinson also. Today's wallpapers are nothing like what I scraped off. Wallpapers are stylish now, easier to apply and remove, some are even available as temporary wallpapers.

This is an example of a removable and re-positionable nautical wallpaper from The Karen Robertson Collection, available at Casart Coverings. In this pattern The Monkey Fist is the star of the show!

ship wallpaper
A playful sailboat design via York Wall Coverings.

Thibaut Wallpaper
An array of nautical wallpapers at Thibaut. This design is from their boat house collection.

Nautical wallpaper from Steves Blinds and Wallpaper.

nautical chart wallpaper
Ralph Lauren's Homes Collection includes a nautical chart wallpaper, called Great Harbor, as well as other nautical designs. Available via Wallpapers to Go. Charts are among my favorite nautical wallpaper. I don't think I would ever get tired of it.

nautical chart wall decal
An easy way to chart your way into these nautical waters is by wallpapering one Accent Wall with Pottery Barn's Nautical Map Decal! But don't think wallpaper is just for walls, it can go on headboards, picture frames and can be used for Decoupage projects too.

I LOVE IT! I actually did the nautical chart thing in my bathroom (maybe i should take pics?). I ordered them from NOAA and they were a pretty penny (and i do mean pretty), but later found some cheaper ones at a flea market up in essex, ma... Thanks so much for this beautiful--and coastal--find!

I can't love it...not yet. I'm still trying to shake the memories of bad wallpaper. :-) Though we have a teeny tiny powder room I'm considering looking for a funky grasscloth wallpaper for (I know...people will tell me grasscloth is so yesterday. But I like it! Especially for my beachy house.)

I need help finding the Navel Flag Wallpaper or something similar. I are decorating a 1967 Wooden Boat and I have fallen in love with this paper. Can anyone help me.

Finding the Navel Flag Wallpaper:

I love that wallpaper! And there is really not much else you can do than just search under the keyword or browse through online wallpaper stores, under nautical, ship, sails, flag and such. I hope you find something great..., your boat sounds intriguing!

I love the chart wallpaper, and my east coast student Mariner wants it for his new room. Where can I find this paper on line - anyone got any ideas? Who makes it? It's a whole bedroom, so I'd rather not go to NOAH...
Thanks

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

Regarding the chart wallpaper: I think in this picture actual nautical charts were pasted onto the wall! I promise I will do a post on nautical wall papers and where you can by them in the very near future!

Could you please tell me where I can buy the "lobster, starfish, crab paper. I would love that in my bathroom!

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

Regarding the lobster, starfish, crab wallpaper. I have not found it yet!! Actually I've been trying to find all of the papers featured here. Looks like I'm trying to locate needles in a haystack! I haven't given up though!!

You can find lots of coastal theme wall paper at Sherwin Williams here:
