Houseboats are full of potential for a number of reasons, not the least of which being the mobility and proximity to the open ocean afforded by this type of dwelling. However, houseboats are also full of design potential. There are endless possibilities when it comes to the interior decoration of your houseboat. One style to draw inspiration from is a sleek and polished modern look that emphasizes cool color tones. Conversely, earth tones can be utilized to create a more laid-back, avant-garde style. A combination of traditional and minimalist styles can produce an inviting atmosphere. For a truly vintage nautical vibe, consider mixing distressed wood accenting and a pastel blue color scheme. Other themes that work well on a houseboat include a rustic, cottage-inspired look; an atmosphere of posh luxury; an industrial design; and, finally, a relaxing, threadbare look to make you feel like you’re on vacation.
- If you dream about waking up to the smell and sound of the ocean, a beachside home isn’t your only option.
- Get up close and personal with the ocean with a house boat.
- Whether its a vacation rental or something more permanent, houseboats come in all sorts of sized and internal decors.
“So whether you rent a house boat and take a well-deserved vacay to Bali or begin a refreshing new life by the bay, it’s good to know that great design can be achieved afloat.”
