Beach House Inspiration Friday #7 - Indigo Blues

To be honest, this is my dream one day.... to have with a nautical chart covering one accent wall in my house.  I found this inspiration photo at House Beautiful almost a year ago, and am still in love with the idea.  Not only does the chart wall scream "nautical" and "sea",  but I am crazy about the dark indigo wall.  

Indigo is rich, dark, cozy, enveloping, I need this color in my next house.  Blues can be fresh,clean and almost a "cool" color, indigo says something else entirely.

..luxury
..tradition
..mysterious 
..romance


Get the look with these accessories!

Etsy has lots of vinyl wall decals that would work until you could actually sketch out your chart - great ideas.
This compass rose is from Empire Studios on Etsy.,  I want this one, as I cannot draw and could probably figure out how to get this up straight!


Like the idea of a dark based lamp,  linen shade with a botanical appliqued sea creature.  Sort of traditional with a twist!

Or maybe the idea of a simple clean lines of this Regatta Lamp?   Classic nautical style with dark blue piping and rope-like accents.....














And of course you  must have the right luxury pillows....velvet, linen, down-filled



My room would need a throw to complete the look.   I like to be a little cozy with my glass of wine and a favorite juicy romance novel!






Have a wonderful Veteran's weekend everyone!  Please thank them for all of their service to our country and for not only their sacrifices, but for their families.


Think about supporting a Veteran's Family Organization this weekend, I know that Tom and I will be discussing it. A simple Google search will bring up a variety of options.  It's such an important mission to our First Lady, Michelle Obama. 


Here's one to start with  - United We Serve

Thanks for your comments! I have real admiration for what Michelle Obama and Jill Biden are doing for our countries' veterans and especially for their families. Have a great weekend!

You could get a projector and sketch out what you want to paint. That wouldn't be too hard. I love all the neat ideas.

Relax and Live at the Beach Every Day of the Year!
