Do you ever find yourself in love with a past love? I do!!
At least in design elements that is! I actually had to make a pinboard on Pinterest called…….
THINGS I AM LOVING AT THE MOMENT
The reason I have a board named this, is I was finding myself drawn to things that I have had in my home in the past, but have fallen in love with them again.
All of this explanation to introduce you to an old/new element I am considering adding into my home for the summer months.
You all know how I love to change out my accessories for the seasons!! In the summer we all think of water and the beach, or at least I do.
Now that my family room has more neutral elements I will have an easier time changing out things.
This element has a theme, and I usually don’t do thematic rooms so I have to do it with restraint.
I know you have probably already guessed it was a sail boat by all of the above images. Years ago our family room actually had some nautical elements in it's design.
This time around I am only going to add a couple of nautical elements with a nod to the ocean.
I try not to do kitschy, so you won’t be seeing any flip-flop images on my walls or, Let’s go to the Beach signs.
(One of my all time favorites by Sarah Richardson)
Since I prefer a casual, understated, elegant look I am going to stick with a pretty large sailboat. ( I am a big is better, less is more gal.)
I think I have the perfect spot for a sail boat…..
This console table sits on the back wall in my family room, behind the blue ticking sofa. I think a large sailboat will look perfect sitting here.
I will only have to make a few small changes in my room to add this element, which is a very good thing, since I just re-did the room, and still have a few finishing touches to add.
Now to find the perfect candidate!!
I am on the hunt so if any of you have a good source let me know!!
