Natural Is In. Natural Rope

Beach/Nautical Is In.

  • Sea spray blues, natural tones, cream hues
  • Sophisticated, stylish, and classic stripes on upholstery
  • Create a light colored dining space that is as bright, inviting, and airy that can be paired with any color.
  • Weathered-look home accessories, and pretty florals on the bedding, and upholstery
  • Use navy, with pops of yellow, red or white.
  • For fun: kitchen accessories with a fish theme.
  • For kids: mermaids are very popular!
