We have that pillow that says "Don't Give Up the Ship" it was my ancestor Oliver Hazard Perry that said it during the battle of Lake Erie. It is a common theme in my mom's home. Love all the photos you posted! "The nautical signal flags" are great!! I'd love to have those around for a party!

I LOVE the idea of the ship wheel sink. If done correctly, and it certainly is in the picture you show, what a fabulous conversation piece. And, lends perfectly to built-in towel racks!

coastal decor said...

Today's updated coastal decorating style is much more sophisticated than the kitschy, nautically-themed rooms that defined this style in the past. Today's coastal decorating is characterized more by a beach-inspired palette than by an over reliance on garish beach-themed knickknacks. Thanks.:)
