Being married to a Marine, I can appreciate incorporating nautical elements into your decor...heck, I've got quite a bit in my own home that just happens to also have personal meaning (hello, nautical charts!) I think there's a fine line between tasteful and kitschy when it comes to piling on beach-themed accessories, though, and fashion exec Scott Currie nails it with subtle nautical flavor in his chic Southampton weekend home!
Talk about a great first impression! Cedar shakes, a board and batten pool house, a pretty impressive privacy hedge (I notice them all the time now that I need one!) and that amazing pool...funny how I tend to unknowingly gravitate to and fall in love with homes that have the same pool design as me!
A round table, slipcovered in linen, grounds the entryway, but I can't take my eyes off the light blue walls and darker gray trim:
Love the blue walls and that fabulous sea captain's chest. And those lemon yellow Chippendale chairs are a breath of fresh air in the living room:
Another great example of how classic, all-white kitchens will always be timeless:
Nautical wedgewood china, an antique lantern and decorative glass bottles add charm to the butler's pantry:
High gloss, white planked walls are a fresh backdrop to more contemporary seating and ocean-themed details like a driftwood lamp, fishing buoy and rope handrail in this light, bright sitting area:
LOVE the wall of French doors and slate floors in the pool house! Those seagrass chairs aren't too shabby, either:
A crisp white pergola and hanging lanterns make for a cozy outdoor eating area....makes me so excited for summer!
