Welcome Back Blog Readers,
With the winding down of summer in a few weeks, I always try to hold onto my great summer experiences with some fabulous nautical elements that can carry me through the year. Maybe it’s because of my passion for sailing that I have always tried to incorporate a nautical theme, for they are a classic in the home. They can be used naturally in your family’s beach cottage, or in spots not by the ocean. For example, in a boy’s bedroom incorporating striped wallpaper or in a guest bedroom, and maybe the use of some toss pillows in a family room, paired with an interesting fabric.
The color navy is a great classic, that, when paired with white, makes any room crisp and clean. And did you know, the color term ‘navy’ comes from the uniforms worn by the British Navy back in the 19th century.
So folks, bring in a nautical theme in your decor, it’s fun, sophisticated, and brings the outside in! Enjoy the rest of the summer, and, as I always say, ‘Don’t be afraid to decorate!”
