Nautical looks are always in vogue, but décor trends influence them in key ways that update the style to make it fresh. Today, two directions are having an impact on nautical subjects. The first is a trend toward glamour. If you have purchased The Trend Curve’s Spring Forward™ 2014 color-and-trend forecast, reference the Beach House Luxe trend for details about how beach settings are dressing up.
Another influence comes from darker blues. At several of the recent trade shows The Trend Curve has attended, sapphire and navy were moving ahead for seaside themes. In the most-directional situations, these darker blues are even nudging popular aquas to the side.
