I really enjoyed looking at all these pictures of nautical spaces. I just love being by the water -- swimming, kayaking, or just sitting on the wharf with my feet in the water.

These pictures really gave me some of that wonderful lakeside/cottage feeling in the wintertime.... thanks Michelle!! :-)

The asymmetrical contemporary drapes are very cool. I am always looking for new ways to hang drapery. Great post - love it.

I love anything nautical as it reminds me of the ocean, which I cannot live without. I particularly like the Pottery Barn room. How idilyic to draw the curtains and curl up in bed with a good book with the surf breaking outside the window.

Now i need a cabin. And a boat. And some of that nice navy ticking fabric. Am all inspired!

Wow, these are all great images.
Pottery Barn has certainly come a long way. That draped window seat is fantastic.
Phoebe Howard's room is perfect.
I also love those bunk beds.

Thank you for the inspiration
