"If The Look must be pinned down, the look is English-American, with a dash of seaside resort and women's handicraft. It is where the Chippendale secretary meets the needlepoint covered brick doorstop, and the lobster-trap coffee table meets the prized Kerman rug. Understatement is essential--perfect proportions and clean lines are preferred over ornate detail. The key words are classic, handsome, patina, and Mother's." *
Mommie's needlepoint foot stool I use every day to reach my sweaters and shoes
Our nautical fish door knocker
Our original ship lantern and mermaid that hang over our front door
Check, check! I've passed another preppy challenge. What Mommie did not give me we have purchased from nautical antique store. It probably helps that we live sea side.
How do you decorate? Do you like to mix in the nautical theme?
