Whether you’re a landlocked ocean soul stuck in the city, or if you’re one of those lucky peeps living somewhere by the beach, having an ocean-themed space is the easiest way to feel like you’re chillin’ at a seaside escape all the time.
Here are some tips to bring your space from airlocked to under the sea!

Nautical-izing your shower curtain is pretty much a given when you’re going for an ocean theme. After all, there’s no time you feel more underwater than when you’re soaking in the tub or taking a shower, and a nautical shower curtain can only enhance that vibe.

Wall art gallery
Creating an ocean-themed space is one of the times where a gallery wall (or should we say galley wall…ship jokes) is absolutely essential. There is endless nautical art out there. Plus, making a gallery wall lets you rep every aspect of the sea.

Twig candle holders
Maybe a little more rustic than oceany, but these candle holders add a touch of a driftwood detail to your space, giving it a beachy vibe.
Jellyfish wall hangings
More jellyfish! If the jellyfish planters weren’t your thang, try these fun crocheted jellyfish ornaments. Hang them to give the illusion that your space is an undersea aquarium to complete your very own saltwater room (buy the above product here!).
This is a super simple DIY project that puts a twist on the classic fill-a-mason-jar-with-seaglass decoration by making the jar look like sea glass. Then fill it up with whatever you like! Maybe some pieces of driftwood for a beachy touch, a pile of those old seashells you got from vacations and don’t know what to do with, or maybe…with more succulents. Because why not? (Learn how to make them here!)
Oceany duvet covers
If you want to surround yourself in ocean-themed designs, the bed cannot be overlooked. Deck your bed out with ocean-themed sheets to be carried off to the sea of your dreams. And hey, while you’re at it, cover that bed in pillows \with more nautical designs.
