The month of August is when I like to take Fridays off from work and go to the beach. I take the kids, a lovely basket, and a good book and just sit for most of the day on the sand under an umbrella and enjoy the scenery. I so love the beach. Even if you live nowhere near the ocean you can bring the shore to your home with a few of these design tips and accessories. There are certainly lots of nautical inspired home furnishings and accessories out there.
With a few key ingredients, like a classic palette of blue and white, accents in red, some rope, and shinny hardware it’s easy to bring the casual, relaxed smell and sights of summer at the shore to your home.
Make sure to use blue and white colors and fabrics made from natural materials like cotton and linen for a light and breezy ambiance.
Don’t be afraid to mix stripes, patterns and solids. They ad interest and movement to the space
Little boys and girls love to sail the seven seas.
I hope this has inspired you. Do you have any ideas to share? We would love to hear from you.
