A mix of nautical and beach decor...not all sailboats and not too much blue!
Combination of my love of the beach & my husband love of things preppy & nautical! We first met at the beach and vacation at the same beach each summer so it was also important for us to incorporate items from that beach.
Preppy & classic with a hint of vintage....or at least a few items that look vintage :)
