On Tuesday I saw the first sail boats back on Lake Calhoune. They were there again yesterday too! It's a lovely sign that the lake is thawed and no matter what the weather man says spring is here to stay. I absolutely love watching the sailboats all summer on our little city lake. It makes me feel like I'm living on the coast! A few people close to me could tell you that I hate only seeing the ocean every few years (I'm over-due! It's been like 5 years now!) and that's why I've got a soft spot for beachy and nautical decor. I'm not talking cheesy, light house motif or sea shell themes. I think when it's done right, you walk in a room and think, "oh, this room reminds me of the sea side." without any obvious symbols jumping out at you. Here are a few nautical interiors I think got it right.
