Ahoy me hearties

My google doodle (that really is what they're called, if you don't believe me check here) this morning tells me today is French author Jules Verne's birthday, well at least it would have been if he were still alive, he may well be twenty thousand leagues under the sea by now hehehe.  Always one for a tie in I thought why not look at some nautically themed spaces this morning.

Bringing the sea and sand into the bathroom.

Art consultant, Barbara Guggenheim's lighthouse collection, some of which she found on eBay.

Which leads me to this...


...antique art print (1905) from Norway currently listed on eBay.

A sophisticated way to do nautical, I like it.

Not being much of beach chick myself, one of the nautical features that most appeals to me is the porthole window.

I love everything about this little nook except for the striped stool, feel like it's too much.

A classic bedroom for boys.

I love how subtle the theme is in this room by Kerry Joyce.

If you're putting together a nautically themed bedroom or luckier still an entire beach or boat house, I think Tim Clarke has the best design tip: don't overuse beach decor.

  1. I'm the same, not overly a beach chick (city girl all the way!)but, I do like those porthole windows, esp the one next to the bath.

  4. Bath lights meanwhile commonly are fashioned in a glass or crystal encasement. This "lamp" feature adds an interesting character depending on the kind of brightness they produce. For too much glare you can tone them down with an addition of a light-colored wall paper or curtains. For diffused glares you can add-in two or three more downlights to generate a stronger texture of lighting.

  13. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any recommendations? Thank you!

    appreciate it.
