The nautical style: furnishings and accessories to recreate the ambiance of your beach house

Seaside style is a design and home décor trend that has recently taken the world of home styling and quality furnishings by storm: nautical-style furniture, furnishings, textiles and lighting mixed and matched tastefully and with refinement can recreate the charm, cool and relaxation typical of a beach house in any setting.

Nautical style, traditionally used for furnishing boats, yachts and summer residences, has quickly spread to city apartments and metropolitan settings too, bringing the insouciance of holiday atmospheres everywhere, thanks to the use of bright colours and cheerful and fun “navy” patterns.

To transform a home, a bar or a shop in coastal style, the term used to indicate the nautical style in the United States, where it is widely used and extremely popular, you do not need to be an interior design professional or spend a fortune: today, nautical style accessories and furniture are easy to find in well-stocked furniture and home décor chain stores or even on-line, at prices which are often truly affordable.

Let’s see which pieces and styles are truly indispensable for the perfect seaside style.

Coastal style colours

Imagine that your room is the inside of an ancient sailing ship or a luxury yacht: choose bright colours for the walls, such as white or ivory, or for the warmth of wood panelling, leave the latter in natural or stripped pale shades.

A must-have in any self-respecting nautical style are all the shades of azure blue, blue and grey, which are reminiscent of the calm sea during summer days or the surging waves during winter storms. The shades of sand, rope and beige bring to mind tropical beaches and the rich variety of elegant nautical knots.

In the trends for 2019 the coastal style is supplemented with new colours, which are not traditionally linked to the nautical world, such as purple, metallic shades of silver, gold and brass, and the lively "living coral", the coolest colour of the year for home décor and design.

Break up the total white effect or the "deep-sea dive" effect of a setting dominated by blues with an old piece of furniture that has been restored and painted in bright colours: a bedside table, a small coffee table for the living room are enough, or even just a picture frame or wooden boxes that are perfect to store magazines, matching coloured cushions, candles or vases with flowers or cactuses.

Seaside style accessories: coastal details to feel on holiday, year-round 

Position furnishings and ornaments with parsimony, you only need very little to evoke the romantic atmosphere of a seaside house or the adventurous spirit of a ship sailing across the seas: portholes, rudders, nautical ropes, life jackets and even buoys can constitute unusual decorative coastal style objects, placed appropriately in a characteristic yet simple setting.

And if you don’t have original pieces or parts of ancient ships? The yacht style can be easily reproduced with fun objects such as model lighthouses and sail boats, candle burner lanterns, glass jars and bottles filled with sand, twigs, seashells and starfish collected during your seaside excursions.

Furnishing your home with seaside style fabrics 

The nautical style can be used in all rooms, with curtains, bedspreads, tablecloths and sofa and armchair covers: stripes are one of the most typical patterns, but prints that look like geographical maps or nautical charts also prove popular, as well as patterns with small anchors, knots or seashells.

You could range from a more bright and classic total white raw cotton to softer and more sophisticated fabrics like velvet and cashmere, reminiscent of the luxury of yacht style.

Patterns, prints and coral colours for cushions and textiles for those of you who want to be daring with their colour palette; special "fabrics" and materials such as jute from old sacks, floor mats or even fishing nets for those who want to play around with tactile sensations.

Coastal table, nautical style tableware to enjoy summer all year round

A seaside style table brings the cheerfulness of summer and the vivacity of seaside holidays to your home all year round: just a few accessories and some creative low-cost ideas are all you need.

The Tablecloth can be white or in shades of blue, in raw cotton, embellished by a runner or table mats in sand and jute colour, better still if made of raffia or braided straw to recall the texture of ropes and nautical knots.

Dishware and crockery in bright colours with a simple design can be livened up with special place cards, with seashells, starfish and peculiar shaped pebbles. Napkins brandishing garish colours, from blue to coral, stand out against the pale shades of the tablecloth and can be secured in an original way with string or threads of jute, bound with twigs or small objects such as fishing buoys or anchor or rudder shaped pendants.

The choice of glass and transparencies, that bring to mind water and the sea and amplify the light reflections, are fundamental: for your seaside style table Decover offers several different interpretations of the coastal style in its Nautical, Amerigo, Azulejos and Sardina lines.

For fun and lively tableware in shades of red and coral, the range of Nautical decorated glass by Decover comprises glasses in 3 different sizes, a bottle with hermetically sealed lid, a 310 ml cup and the highly original country cup with lid and straw, ideal for drinks, fruit juices and long drinks.

NAUTICAL

Amerigo by Decover interprets the nautical style in a sophisticated and classic way: elegant sailing ships, compass roses and other typical nautical motifs clad 3 original glasses, a bottle with hermetically sealed lid, milk bottle with screw cap and the original Olimpia bottle.

AMERIGO

The Azulejos collection by Decover brings to mind typical Mediterranean colours and decorative patterns, like the refined Portuguese majolica or flashy Tunisian ceramics: the line comprises two models of glasses, a 310 ml cup, a hermetically sealed bottle and a kitchen jar with snap lid, ideal for salt, sugar, coffee, rice and pasta.

AZULEJOS

For an informal and undemanding coastal table, the Sardina glasses by Decover are the perfect touch of fun practicality: a host of stylised fish in shades of pale blue swim across the glass, creating games of light and transparencies.

DIY Valentine’s day table 

Are you looking for simple and inexpensive ideas that could make your Valentine’s day table truly unique and special?

Start with textiles: the more passionate among you will opt for the perfect plain red tablecloth, whereas romantics will love a classic white damask tablecloth sprinkled with some sumptuously scented red or pink rose petals.

How to lay the table for Valentine's Day? 

Glasses, bottles and glass tableware will play the starring role on your Valentine’s day table: a proper romantic dinner would not be complete without making a toast to the sweetest celebration of the year!

Decover, leader in the decorated glass industry, offers an entire line of glasses, bottles, cups and glassware dedicated to the day for lovers.

Are you looking for the ideal glasses for Valentine's Day to serve a pre-dinner cocktail? Jazz Beverage and Conic Beverage, which are decorated with cute red hearts along the rim, are perfect for a romantic aperitif.

Another timeless table decoration is to use your partner’s favourite flowers, but those who want to be more daring and truly unconventional can opt for fun heart-shaped balloons tied to the middle of the table or to the chairs, or giant 3D wording cut out of corrugated cardboard, or even romantic hanging decorations hanging from the ceiling or even a fun treasure hunt to guide your guest sweetly or with a bit of spice from the front door to your splendid Valentine’s Day table!

Another fun, low-cost idea is to create table decorations using the pieces from your Scrabble set: you can compose love notes, a poem or a few verses of your partner’s favourite song.... or even a truly original proposal!

If you enjoy baking, Valentine’s Day cakes and biscuits, perhaps even heart-shaped and glazed and decorated with themed sprinkles, can not only be delicious desserts but also sophisticated place card holders or centrepieces, carefully arranged on a cake stand.

Valentine’s Day Breakfast, to start off Valentine's Day romantically as you mean to go on

If putting together an entire Valentine's Day dinner and decorating the table with DIY ideas seems too challenging, you can give your other half a special start to the day: prepare a hearty Valentine's Day breakfast, strictly in bed of course!

This means a cup of strong coffee, a rich cappuccino or a fragrant rose or vanilla herbal tea: present these with style in a Decover decorated glass mug or cup spiced up by delightful red hearts.

You can opt for classic croissants, filled with chocolate custard or topped with whipped cream and fresh strawberries, or prepare romantic tarts or pancakes prepared on the day using heart-shaped cutters. Another typical Valentine’s Day treat are shortbread biscuits or vanilla muffins, which you can fill and decorate with red or pink icing, themed hundreds and thousands or rose petals frosted in sugar for a touch of delicate sophistication.

Accompany your special breakfast with fresh orange juice, a multivitamin packed fruit juice or slow-pressed juice: you can present these in a fun way using the delightful Crazy Love and Love Roses decorated glass bottles. You can prepare your drinks in advance and keep them fresh and fragrant for days in the refrigerator thanks to the handy screw cap. Also ideal for fresh milk.

Furniture, decoration and tableware trends in 2019: discover the colours and must-have styles!

2019 colour trends: not just living coral!

The new year has just begun and there is already a growing craze for the furniture trends and the new colours that are destined to bloom throughout 2019.

Architects and designers all agree on which colours are to play the starring role in decorating and furnishing homes in 2019: the undisputed ruler of home décor and interiors this year is to be living coral, the PANTONE 16-1546 shade of pink with hints of gold that envelops settings with elegant energy and positivity.

The summer 2019 trends expect to see the domineering presence of living coral, from wall paint to bright wallpaper with optical and geometric patterns, designer accessories as well as lighting, without forgetting textiles and tableware.

pantone living coral

The tropical trend of 2018 has not entirely lost its appeal: in fact, the most popular combinations for living coral include bright shades of green, deep or lemon yellow, electric blue and red, which were the protagonists of the last year’s beloved jungle style.

These colour combinations, interpreted with a fun graphic twist, and diluted in pastel hues, were the inspiration for the June decorated glasses: soft ice cream in shades of living coral, fresh fruit and delicate leaves are the components making up the fresh and fun decorations, simply perfect for a colourful summer table.

The metallic version of living coral is ultra-chic and very trendy: ceiling lamps, ornaments and home furnishings in metallic pink will add a touch of sophisticated romance to elemental Scandinavian style or hygge home interiors, combined with distressed gold and silver.
Picture frames, mirrors, tables and lighting in rosé metal will be the must-have accessories for sophisticated and super-fashionable furnishings.

The winter 2019 trends will instead feature less shocking and decidedly colder shades, renewing the success of the evergreen pairing of black & white, enhanced by hints of mustard yellow or gunbarrel grey.

The winter colour trends for 2019 were the source of inspiration for the Planets decorated glasses line, which takes the minimal refinement of geometric graphics to the table.

2019 decorative patterns and graphic trends

More than ever before, less is more: furniture trends in 2019 impose a minimal style that is also "edgy", characterised by geometric patterns and square shapes.

Essential and stylised patterns can be found on coloured floors in post-modernist style, on tiles featuring three-dimensional decorations, on wallpaper which is definitely back in fashion, exploding into luxury optical patterns inspired by the great geometric graphic of the 30s and 70s.

Household furniture in 2019 also promises to be elemental and ultra-basic in shape, in accordance with Scandinavian style and hygge, a very recent trend that prefers natural materials, such as wood and wool: sofas, tables and armchairs with a design reduced to a bare minimum, consisting of unrefined and unprocessed elements, like tree trunks, roots or stones, contrast with the soft luxury of carpets, cushions and textiles in soft angora or Mongolian wool, fur or natural hand-woven fibres in rustic, textured materials.

Jungle & Cactus, the tropical trend of 2019

In contrast with the simple shapes of minimalist style, summer 2019 will provide confirmation of the rich and enveloping tropical patterns: large fern leaves, dense jungles, spotted and animalier patterns beside a multitude of stylised or hyper-realistic cactus will paint walls and textiles green, confirming the outstanding success of the exotic graphic trends which were already popular in 2018.

urban jungle style

In particular, the symbolic object of design in 2019 will be the cactus, either stylised or cartoon, reproduced on fabrics or prints, painted onto ceramics and tableware, three-dimensional as a fun ornament or an unconventional lamp and, naturally, very much alive and real in thorny potted compositions scattered throughout the home.

interior design

Decover, leading manufacturer of 100% Italian printed glass with exclusive designs, is keeping up with the 2019 decorative trends and offers its Lama, Tribal, Sandra, Forest, Pineapple and Cactus lines of glasses to dress the summer table with the fun and warmth of the most popular tropical fantasies.

Fun lamas, adorable stylised pineapples, fern branches, brightly coloured abstract tribal-style decorations and must-have cacti for a different, fun and carefree tableware theme each day.

Scandinavian, vintage and industrial: the "must-have" style trends in 2019

The success of Scandinavian style, characterised by a few basic and functional pieces of furniture set in a context dominated by white and by simplicity, continues unabated and is even consolidated in 2019, supplemented by more vintage hues inspired by the world of nature.

nordic style

Typical Swedish-style furniture and accessories will be given a new lease of life when mixed with vintage 60s/70s armchairs, footstools and sofas, preferably featuring their original fabric upholstery or a good imitation thereof.

Glass, cast iron and untreated wood will instead play the starring role of another important furnishing trend in 2019: industrial style remains a great success, and mixing it with raw elements such as bark, roots, jute and live plant compositions has given rise to rustrial (rustic + industrial), the latest trend for lovers of a country style with strong minimal-chic vibes.

The purity and simplicity of Scandinavian and rustrial style are the protagonists of the graphics found on the Provence decorated glasses: striking yet simple designs inspired by nature and a delicate floral pattern for a country-minimal table that does not forego elegance and originality.

Flamingo-mania: pink charm on your table, with Decover Flamingo decorated glasses

Not many people know that the flamingo-mania - that spread all over on Instagram in the summer of 2017, and which is still the undisputed protagonist of gadgets and graphics - comes from afar: in 1957, Donald Featherstone, a guy who worked for Union Products (a US company specializing in the production of plastic materials), created the famous stylized pink flamingo statue, which became a pop icon of 1960s Americana.

Flamingo-mania exploded: there wasn’t a single garden in America without one of those statues, insomuch as it was awarded the IG Nobel Art Prize in 1996.
The Pink Flamingos film (1972) by John Waters and Andy Warhol’s creations permanently consecrated flamingos as an artistic trend.

Fashion influencers, and even the best high fashion designers, such as Valentino and Giambattista Valli, have recently reinterpreted this icon in a witty, chic and sophisticated way: in no time, flamingos have taken over clothes, shoes, accessories, design furniture and hi-tech: tableware is no exception, and the trendiest tables all wear pink, with themed crockery, fabrics and decorations.

flamingos tableware

Decover has created the Flamingo silkscreen glasses, with their practical and essential shape, and with a witty and fascinating design.

A flock of fun flamingos and stylized fern leaves blossoming on our glasses, to create classy pink and green motifs, and painting your table and home in a fresh and witty way.

Cactus-fever, the latest design trend, lands on Decover decorated glasses 

Along with the flamingo and unicorn mania, there’s now a new, funny trend: cactus-mania!

cactus collection tropical style decover

Succulents are excellent as house plants: they decorate and bring colour to your house, without being too much work; they fit in well with all styles, are very resistant, make even people who don’t have much of a green thumb happy, and are available in many different shapes and blossoms.

Today, cactus and prickly plants abound on fabrics and garments, become weird lamps or design décors, and add some summery warmth and Far West glamour to your table and tableware.

cactus tableware

It comprises a wide range of shades, from green to brown to ochre, typical of the wild lands where cactus proliferate.

There are endless home décors where these prickly plants - a wonder of Nature, with their neat and simple forms - are protagonists: if you love the cactus-mania, Decover has created a collection of printed high-quality glasses made in Italy, with this exclusive, witty and funny pattern.

Many cactus in pastel hues, for an informal and irreverent style, inspired by summer and freedom!

Slow-life décor trends: natural elements to make your home more serene

Slow-life is the latest décor trend of 2018: its mission is transforming your home in a reassuring space, giving serenity and balance, thanks to Mother Nature’s colours and shapes.

forest collection tropical style decoration decover

And what’s more comforting and relaxing than surrounding yourself with things as old as time that you’ve known for ever?

It doesn’t take much to feel safe and in harmony with the world: surround yourselves with green and brown, Earth’s hues, and with simple and authentic materials, such as wood, wool and leather. Large photo prints featuring woods, forests, snowy or autumnal valleys will do the rest, and will comfort you in a warm embrace.

Slow-life also blossoms on tableware and fabrics, transforming your table in a lush garden, where optical graphics and stylized shapes reinterpret Nature’s perfection.

Match a natural linen table runner with striking colour combinations, such as Decover Forest decorated glasses, embellished by an essential and sophisticated naturalistic décor.

Delicately nuanced green fern leaves adorn the glass, creating reflections and overlays that revoke the fronds of luxuriant forests.
