I’m contemplating new interior cushions for Elizabeth this summer, and looking for inspiration. If you have pics of your interior color schemes you’d like to share, post them up here. I have the varnished wood cabin side interior, so primarily looking for good options to compliment that darker feel. I was thinking something reddish with a pattern, anyone have something along those lines?
Here’s a pic of the cushion-less, faded, dirty salmon cushions I’ve got now.
Hi Ben , To each , his own !
There are some good guide lines available in marine outfitting books, as to choosing color and paterns for interior compatability.
My BCC came with a dark green sunbrella upolstery, and I didn’t know why.
That was until after 20 days at sea, I found the green color very inviting.
Seems that the forest or foliage green color is quite absent during long passages at sea , and during the 22 day passage from Kawai to Seattle, I began to welcome the green color, below deck.
Mike Anderson has a red-burgandy color upolstery on his boat “Tansey Lee” , as you can see on his website.
It is so nice to see that interior photo of BCC Elizabeth , Good On You , Mate !
Ben I have a book titled Classic Yacht Interiors… lots of good color photos. If you’re interested I’ll send it to you. I won’t need it back for a few more months. Send me a private with a mailing address.
When we selected a color for the cushions for our Flicka, we choose Persian Green Sunbrella for the tops and sides and Phifertex for the bottom.
Many experienced cruisers told us when on a passage there is an absence of green and a green interior cushions break the boredom of seeing blues and reds at sea.
