This week’s Style Me Sunday ushers in a little summer warmth to ease your chilly winter blues. And there’s no better light than our new Sydney shades to do this! Its nautical style is reminiscent of our favorite oceanic holidays—and is the perfect fixture for this eclectic space.
Whether located in your back porch or living room, outdoor furniture like this Wicker Lane White Chair adds lots of texture and detail. Fresh foliage is another element that brings the outdoors in and enlivens your senses.
Crisp and clean cobalt blue-and-white patterns often make cameo appearances in nautical spaces, but we’re adding a little twist with this Arbre Chinois fabric. We love the way this fabric coordinates with the chinoiserie planter from the Inspiration Image without clashing with the overall look.
Looking for a fun way to display your favorite findings? Try hanging them as wall ornamentation! We love this Octopus Print from Etsian littlebluebirdstudios. And don’t forget wall sconces — Captain Ahab would be envious of this Admidships Bulkhead Wall Mount Light Fixture’s patina finish!
Fill your Canvas Baskets with Handles with shells, sea-glass, or other collectibles for a great conversational piece!
The classic styling of an RLM warehouse shade has long been a popular choice for both residential and commercial lighting venues where a downward focus of light is desirable. Think restaurant tables and retail store displays on the commercial side and kitchen islands and front porches on the residential side. The bowl shape of the warehouse shade keeps the light directed down, not splashing onto the next table or into the neighbor’s front yard. But sometimes you a bit of uplighting add visual interest to a fixture and provides more light to a space.Read More
For centuries sailors and ship patrons have benefited from the use of portholes to reduce the claustrophobic feeling that can often be experienced when below deck. The use of portholes continues today with the latest cruise ships that come out of port, providing natural lighting and a glimpse out to the open waters below. Taking a page out of the maritime handbook, this series of nautical wall sconces focus on eliminating the closed space and darkness that often plagues rooms with little light or no windows. By providing lighting through the convex glass domes of this series of marine lights, the impression of sunlight permeating through is achieved with rustic style and solid American craftsmanship. Each light in this series comes in various sizes and styles to fit any desired mounting location with a choice of high quality finishes to set these lights apart from other nautical lights on the market.Read More
