NAUTICAL CHIC




Navy blue and white interspersed with jaunty anchor and flag motifs, the nautical look is a classic that still feels fresh and fabulous today. Perfect for a summer tablescape, I've included some of my favorites for the season. Anchors away!

I love the pillow and little bowl. Beautiful, and so nautical. I have noticed a lot more nautical lately.
Happy Tuesday, Barbara.

We've had a sneak peek at summer this week in Seattle with temperatures climbing toward 80 degrees. It makes me want to throw a party, and navy blue and white feels just right to celebrate warm summer days.

Barbara,

I grew up on the West coast (with sailboats) so all these nautical images are reminiscent of my childhood! Navy and white, or stripes are so summery whether in the wardrobe or on a pillow, love it all.

Great post!

Have fun today,
leslie
