Fabulous Fabric Friday #3 [Get Nautical]

Pin It
Its Friday, yay!

Do you have any big plans for the weekend?  Trista, my 8yr old, has a sleep over party and we may take a day trip to Wilmington, NC (about 2 hours south of us). Fun :-)

This week I've been working on some custom orders, but my brain has been all over the place thinking up new fabric combinations for bags and accessories.  With this week welcoming the first day of Summer, and our not living but 20 minutes from the coast, I'm really drawn to the shades of blues, bright reds, sandy neutrals and sailboat whites of nautical decor and fashion.  So, for this week's Fab. Fab. Friday I'm highlighting Nautical Inspired fabrics.

Here is a taste of what I would decorate a bright-white-beach-front living room in... enjoy!

Large, blue throw and floor pillows would be in my beach house:

Today's indoor/outdoor fabrics are  really well made and many are soft and comfy; perfect for beach house pillows... you know, since there's lots of sand and water around, *wink*.  Also, very kid and pet friendly!  I have two large floor pillows in my living room (see Tommy Bahama print below) and they have held up wonderfully, clean easily (my dogs mostly claim them) and are still super soft! They make for awesome totes, too!

Can't go wrong with Seashells and Ships:

And just for fun, I adore these Tommy Bahama prints:

(p.s. I do have a large floor pillow in my living room using this lagoon print!)

Wouldn't this make a cool beach tote, paired with Natural Cotton Webbing straps?!

Ahhh, nice and relaxing... I swear I hear the waves crashing.

Have a great Friday!
