Ahoy Matey!

Today, while visiting the workshop of a family friend, I spotted an old wooden row boat. I loved the weathered, vintage appearance of the boat, and immediately began thinking of clever ways I could use it on my next project. After scouring the internet for inspiration, I’ve come across quite a bit of boating/sailing interior decor inspiration that I just had to share! Enjoy!

Turn Your Lights On

It used to be that chandeliers were meant only for the dining room, but today, they can work in just about every room in your house.

It is my experience that working with a lighting professional is the best way to go to ensure that you’re fixture will be size appropriate, and properly installed. Lighting is an incredibly important, and often overlooked component of furnishing a room. A great way to update your space is to remove that outdated fixture, and bring in a new chandelier. Here’s a few pictures of nautical chandelier inspiration:
