How to Channel Sailor Chic in Your Design Business

When interior design clients come to you with a vision for their homes, it’s up to you to create a space that fits with their ideas but stands out from the norm. If you want to channel sailor chic in a space, but are tired of striping and anchor accents, try incorporating elements of the traditional shipping industry instead, such as Muntz metal pieces.

Design Uses for Muntz Metal

Muntz metal is an alloy of copper, zinc, and iron, which is corrosion-resistant and has antimicrobial properties. Historically, it was used to clad ship hulls to keep organisms from attaching to the bottom of the boat and breaking down the structure.

In a modern setting, Muntz metal lends itself to a variety of design uses. Its bright yellow appearance makes it a striking option for both architectural pieces and metal accents within a room. Depending on your client’s needs, you could opt for Muntz metal door knobs, hinges and window accents, or draw the eye with a sculpture or large mirror.

Creating a Nautical Inspired Interior for Clients

When using yellow colored metals, be sure to combine this with suitable wood and fabric features for an overall nautical look. Traditional ship quarters use dark woods such as oak for the structure and larch or cedar for planking, so, you can imitate these features in a room with wooden flooring and furniture pieces. Add Muntz metal picture frames and drawer handles to a dresser for more panache within a room.

If you’d like to create unique Muntz metal pieces, talk to a metal supplier about using their facilities to create extrusions and cast products. An interior designer will encounter no limitations on what they can achieve within a room when implementing Muntz metal.
