Nautically inspired interior design takes the cake for this summer’s breakout home decor trend. Easy accents like charming Bulkhead Wall Mount Light Fixtures and marine lantern style lighting carry the spirit of adventure into seaside retreats across the nation. We love spaces that make us dream, and that is why we’re looking “up” for the next big interior design trend. It’s time to take our rooms to new heights with aviation inspired decor!
Pull out your model airplanes, it’s time to get aeronautically charged style!

We were in for a treat when Lauren, our photographer, stumbled across one of our new favorite vacation locations—the Mermaid Cottages. Their charming interiors full of vibrant walls, rustic accents, and shabby chic décor captivated us–of course we had to be their friends! We were inspired by their many rental cottages located on Tybee Island, so today’s Style Me Sunday is all about the “cottage charm, coastal calm” of their Inlet Breeze master bedroom.Read More
When you think of the ideal bedroom, what elements do you come up with? Comfy sheets? Wicker dressers? Ceramic cat collections? Hey, there’s no shame in having personal style. Bedrooms are the ideal place to show off decorations that enable you to unwind and be yourself.
This mood board is all about the “Effortlessly Chic Bedroom”—a space that exemplifies how chic doesn’t always have to be fussy and structured.
The muted St. Barts Stripe Duvet Cover begs to be snuggled in with its simple, graphic lines that give a slight nod to the nautical. Pairing it with retro industrial accents like the The Restoration Vintage Industrial Wood Side Table, Industrial Metal Round Standing Mirror and Dolomite Alarm Clock makes this room gender neutral. We love how these minimalist prints from inhauspress’s etsy remind us to dream—and they make a great replacement for a headboard! Spotlighting this collection of artwork are two Fire Chief Porcelain Sign Lights. The pop of yellow hues is perfect for creating a focal point in this otherwise subdued space and it’s a great way to show off the duality what are normally thought of outdoor lights!
If that look intimidates you, you can always consider the Barn Light Indy Industrial Pendant for your lighting. While the exposed bulb and simple turnkey makes them neutral enough to fit in both casual and formal spaces, they can be customized with bulbs like the Plumen or Nostalgic Edison Bulbs to add a little flair!

The homeowners, Trisha and Andy Urban, were in the midst of planning their renovations for the cabin when Andy tragically passed away from a heart attack. To complete the Urban’s vision, Ty Pennington and the rest of the Extreme Makeover design team rebuilt the Urban’s crumbling, 300-year-old log cabin and farm. Each of the upgrades made to the Urban household were made to reflect the rustic and industrial appearance of the original barn. Distressed wood doors were painted in cottage colors and vintage inspired furniture was placed in various rooms throughout the house. Outside of the home, goats and other farm animals on the Urban’s property were provided with a new stall, aptly named the “Goatel.”
The hanging white light fixtures pictured in the bedroom photo above are very similar to Ivanhoe™ Sky Chief 16″ Warehouse Porcelain Pendant and the Industrial Twist Cord 16″ Warehouse Pendant from Barn Light Electric Co.Read More
The Colonial Era was known for a decorative style that was heavily influenced by Roman and Greek architecture. The ornate detail was carried over into lighting, which displayed etched scallop designs along with organic shapes. This style crossed over into the Victorian Era and became representative of the elegance and grace that defined this period. The Linwood Semi-Flush Ceiling Light showcases this influence in the details of the base and shade. Deep grooves decorate the base of this ceiling light, which extends down with chains supporting the ornamental glass shade. Versatility remains a strong trait of the Linwood Ceiling Light, the small size allows for it to be mounted in porches, pantries, bedrooms, and bathrooms. Due to the artistically engraved glass shade and decorative appearance this light is not limited to any particular architectural style. The Linwood Ceiling Light is a great fit for any room that needs a subtle semi-flush mount light that can add to the vintage authenticity of your home.
