Don’；t we all think of vacations when we think of summer？ You may not be taking a trip around the world (or even out of the state)， but we all deserve a little R&；R this time of year. Because of that，？we like to bring a few summer accents into our home that remind us of our favorite waterfront vacation spot.？Casual spaces， nautical accents， and perfectly patina-ed finishes create a cozy vibe that feels relaxed and vacation-ready. Here are our favorites：
Blue is obviously a favorite when it comes to creating a nautical vibe in your home. In this space， we used a variety of blues like sky， indigo， and cobalt， and even though they’；re not matching， it？all comes together beautifully. With textured finishescustomized gifts for kids， like jute-wrapped leaf wall plaques， a zinc？pendant light， and worn wooden shelves， you’；ve got a space that feels like it was collected over time. Which let’；s face it， is？what we all love about lake houses and beach cottages!lace pillowcases
We love that knubby texture of jute， so naturally we’；re digging our jute？leaf plaques and jute-wrapped Knowles shelf.？When you’；re wanting to create a space that has that same relaxed feel of your go-to vacation spot， we like to incorporate pieces with little details like this that evoke that feeling. Larger more permanent accessories like wall art are less likely to be changed out， so we go for details that create a ‘；feel’； but aren’；t necessarily in a theme.
Pillows are the perfect place for you to go a little theme-y because they’；re so easy to swap out from season to season. These Anchor Indoor/Outdoor Pillows have a whimsical embroidered anchor on them and are the perfect way to bring in a little nautical style， but you can easily store them in your built in banquette (our Breton Banquette has storage underneath) during the winter months.
You know we love a good tote bag， so we’；re really digging these new jute totes with pom poms and fringe. They’；re a great way to give your entry a little summertime feel.？We take them everywhere from the grocery store， to the pool， and even on weekend getaways!
In this space， we created a room with a distinctly summery feel， but individually， the？pieces we used？could be at home in nearly any decor. Take our Cassidy Round Mirror. We’；ve used this mirror in so many places. It’；s one of our favorites because of its timeless shape and exquisite？finish —； there’；s a little bit of gold， taupe， white， and blue all worn to perfection! This mirror can be at home in nearly any room， but with a rope-knot rug and nautical pillows， it transports you to the coast!
You can’；t have a home that gives you that relaxed， on-vacation feeling unless you actually want to relax in it. Comfortable pieces are a must if you want a space that recharges you after a long work day， which is why well-made upholstered furniture has to be？the basis for every room. Take our Baldwin Sectional， for example. This piece is handmade in North Carolina from sustainably harvested wood， stuffed with a down/fiber blend in each cushion， and then covered in a washable slipcover. We can feel the naps coming just talking about it!
Fabrics with a seaside feel are a great way to create that summery， vacation feel in your home. We love our new Arya Navy fabric because it reminds us of coral or sea anemones. In a color palette of navy and spa blue， this fabric can work with so many other pieces in your home. It’；s fun， whimsical， and we especially love it on our Shiloh Spool Chair!
So many of our fabrics work together to create beautiful palettes. We especially love the way all of these beauties come together —； deep， rich indigo velvet， our Arya Navy fabric， Mira Blue animal print， and watery marbled Florentine Taupe.
Summer isn’；t just about hitting the beach (although that’；s definitely on our To Do list)， it’；s about taking some time to recharge your mind， body， and spirit， and you don’；t necessarily need to go anywhere to do that! Just rethink your current space， and let your imagination inspire you to create relaxing spaces you’；ll enjoy all year long!

The family room is a very important space in your home. This is the space where everyone comes together after a long day, unwinds, reconnects and relaxes. We feel that it's important to add a personal touch to your family room to create a warm, beautiful space that you look forward to falling into every evening. This is where our Personalized Canvas Prints come in!
