Interior Trends and Treatments for 2017 – Ready to redecorate?

Ready to redecorate?
Here’s what’s new in yacht interior design and décor.

Walk around any boat show and you’ll notice that yacht décor and interior design are evolving as fast as the underlying naval architecture. Influenced by both shifting tastes and new technology, yacht interior trends change every 3-8 years, which has repercussions on the sale of new vessels as well as the resale value of pre-owned yachts.

Interior designers experienced with marine applications must combine form and function seamlessly for the demanding environment. Space must be used effectively, weight is kept to a minimum and a boat usually takes much more wear and tear than a house. With the addition of large sunroofs, disappearing doorways and well-appointed flybridges, the line between the indoors and outdoors is blurred so materials must be as seaworthy as the crew.

Shelley DiCondina of Yacht Interiors by Shelley, frequently works with Hargrave Yachts where an interior project can take 16 months. Her designs must anticipate what will be stylish nearly a year and a half after she develops the concept and for the many years that the owners will enjoy their vessel. Textures, light, space planning, and the scale of furnishings must work in harmony, meaning serious décor is far beyond adding a few throw pillows. An awareness of trends is critical.
