Sail Away

Good Morning!! Can you believe it is already Monday again?? My mom has been visiting all weekend and we have enjoyed some much needed relaxation, which is wonderful because I have quite a crazy week ahead!

I was flipping through my style files to try and decide what would inspire this morning’s post and came across an image of a headboard that used recycled sail cloth.  I have also been working with a client and we discussed the possibility of doing a shower curtain and drapes in one of their baths.  So I was off to see what I could find, and I was amazed at how many beautiful products I found!

Using Sail Cloth in your home is not only beautiful, it is a great way to recycle and reuse.  The material is tough and sturdy.  Most current sails are made with synthetic fibers such as nylon, but previously were made from flax, hemp, or cotton.

1. Shower Curtains….
I adore these and think the peep hole additions are great! These are the perfect addition to any bathroom, at the beach or not!

2. Head Boards…

Both of these are custom constructed headboards (I also love in the first image the addition of the lamp shade, great touch!)

3. Chairs (for the beach, porch, or anywhere inside)…

4. Pillows….
As long as the insert allows, these pillows would be spectacular either inside or out!

5. Dog Bed Cover…
With Sail cloth being so durable, I think using Sail Cloth to cover a dog bed is genius! It is a great look and it’s practical.


6. Door Stop…
This doorstop is manufactured in Great Britain and weighs a generous 2.5 kg.  It is a unique attractive cube shape with convenient lifting handle, perfect for stopping the door from slamming when that ocean breeze is a bit strong!

7. Room Divider Inspiration…
I love this idea! The image shown uses a clean white sail for a more modern look, you could add the nautical touch if you used sections with numbers or markings.

8. Bags…
Talk about a Chic beach bag! I think the rope handle is beautiful on this bag.  If it’s not your taste there is a wide variety of handles, shapes, sizes, and colors.

9. Holiday Decorations…
What a perfect way addition for a nautical holiday! This year Santa is arriving by boat instead of his sleigh!


So which is your favorite way to reuse the sail cloth?

I know I am ready to Sail Away! I have to go to Tampa this weekend for a wedding and I really wish I had that beautiful bag to take to the beach with me!
Enjoy your day!

Friday Fave: MGandBW Custom K9 Bed

Good Morning and Happy Friday! Gloomy weather and all this week has seemed to fly by, but here we are Friday again, and that means it’s time for another favorite find!

For those that know me, I love my child, Abbi.  I think Pets add so much life to a home, but sometimes when you are trying to create a completely designed space, it hard to find an attractive bed for pets.   Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams have introduced a K9 Bed into their new collection that you can have customized in any of the fabric choices they offer (which is a HUGE collection!).  It is not shown on their website yet, but it is available in stores or you can contact me for info.  I love this because with the variety of fabrics (solids and prints) you can incorporate a beautiful dog bed into any design!

The bed is available in three sizes Medium 24x36x6, Large 30x42x6,  Xlarge 35x50x6.  Retail starts at $197 for the Medium size depending on the fabric grade you select.

As you can see, Abbi generally resides on my bed, however, I know she would love to have a custom bed may be in her future!

So what do you think?
Hope you have a wonderful weekend and Enjoy your Day!
