It wouldn’t be a house on the coast without a painting or two of ships braving the sea. But just because they’re nautical doesn’t mean they have to be predictable. The contemporary, monochromatic palette and simple frame on the piece above is a unique and unexpected choice. Offbeat coastal inspired accessories can create a similar effect; vintage marine finds are my absolute favorite.
Here's the thing- call it feminine or call it traditional.. but nothing says, “come curl up” like super-comfy, cushy upholstered piece. It's the most effortless invitation for quite moments in a good read, a shared giggle with your precious little one, or just a short kick off your shoes moment to gather your thoughts. A colorful slipcover with contrasting white piping gives a formal chaise a more relaxed feel.
