Complete Your Nautical Theme With A Pelican Wall Art

A nautical theme is a popular choice for décor, and there are many ways to incorporate it into your home. One way to add a touch of the sea is with pelican wall art.

Pelicans are often associated with the coast, and their long beaks and webbed feet make them unique among birds. In addition, pelicans are known for their fishing skills, which makes them a perfect choice for nautical wall art.

When selecting pelican canvas art, look for pieces that complement the other elements in your room. For example, if you have a beach-themed room, look for art that features waves or sand dunes. If your room has a traditional nautical theme, look for pelican wall decor featuring boats or anchors. 

Why are Pelicans Perfect for Nautical Themes?

There's something about pelicans that just screams "nautical." Maybe it's their long, graceful necks or their habit of flying in formation. Or perhaps it's because they always seem to have mysterious smiles, or we just find them on seas and ports.

Whatever the reason, pelicans make the perfect addition to any nautical-themed decor.

Pelicans are also associated with good luck, which makes them even more perfect for nautical themes. After all, what could be luckier than finding a beautiful pelican watching over your home?

Pelicans are also symbols of strength and endurance, fitting for a decor theme meant to withstand the elements.

Whether you choose to use real pelicans in your decor or simply use pelican-inspired pieces, there's no doubt that these birds will add a touch of class and beauty to your nautical theme.

There's something about nautical-themed decor that just screams summertime fun. Whether you live near the beach or just want a summer getaway, these nautical-themed interior must-haves will help you give your home a seaside vibe.

You can combine these elements with your pelican canvas art to complete the look:


A classic beachcombing find, seashells are the perfect way to bring a bit of the ocean into your home. Use them to decorate shelves, mantels, and tabletops, or fill a glass bowl or vase for a simple and elegant centerpiece.


Sailboats are synonymous with summertime fun, so it's no surprise that they make great nautical-themed decor items. From miniature sailboats to full-sized replica yacht models, there are plenty of ways to incorporate this maritime icon into your home design.

Life preservers

Another classic nautical item, life preservers make great wallhangings or door decorations. You can usually find vintage life preservers at flea markets or antique stores, or you can purchase new ones that look like antique pieces.

Lighthouse paintings or prints

Lighthouses are one of the most iconic images associated with the sea, so it's no surprise they're also popular nautical-themed decor items. Paintings or prints of lighthouses in stormy weather make dramatic decorations, but any type of lighthouse image works well in a seaside-themed home.


Another popular maritime motif, anchors, can be used in various ways to add a nautical touch to your home decor. Hang an anchor-shaped wall clock in your kitchen or living room, use an anchor-patterned throw pillow to dress up your sofa, or place a few small decorative anchors on shelves or mantels for a touch of seafaring style.
