Sailboats, Anchors, and Waves, Oh My!

Do you remember the last time you were at, or just imagine being at a beach hotel or lake house? You may have noticed hints of nautical design throughout the décor – paintings featuring beaches or waves, picture frames shaped like portholes, or anchors adorning the walls.  But do you remember how this decor made you feel?  

Sometimes, it just takes a simple addition to your environment like a few nautical-inspired décor items to a room or even a nautical pattern to clothing can make you feel more serene… almost like you are on vacation no matter where you are!  As we head into summer and sailing season, now is a great time to start those fun, nautical-themed projects!

Here’s a fantastic nautical pillow project we recommend, by Lisa Veith:
