Beach Decorating Blog
Nantucket, definitely on my bucket list. I am West Coast girl through and through, but I just can't help myself, I have always been drawn to Northeast Coast "seafaring" style of casual, welcoming beach home interiors. I love the crisp navy blues and white, the sailing ships, the whaling history, and the mix of nautical done right!
What do you think? Here's a few seaworthy decor details that you can add to your decor to get the look!
Start with a Seagrass or Jute Rug to "anchor" your space
Great pattern and texture in this Aaron All Natural Jute Rug!
Navy Blue Pillows....
A Driftwood Inspired Whale - We call him Mocha!
Welcome Guests with a Bright Lobster Pillow!
Navy Blue and White Starfish are always a classic look too!
An Anchor Candle Holder or two... Love this re-emerging brass look! (new on our site!)
Sconce Lighting provides an extra special touch, plus they are space saving in a small beach cottage. These Rustic Swing Arm Sconces are one of our top choices for a touch of driftwood finished with a polished look!
Don't forget pretty, nautical wall art to bring the whole room together!
And of course, a model sailing ship is a must! Love this red and black sailing beauty -
Such a fun look to show off your curated collection of nautical finds. We would love to know if you've decorated your home in this classic maritime style!
