Red, White and Blue Coastal Styling


I was instantly drawn to this vignette discovered while collecting  images for one of my nautical boards on Pinterest.  Just imagining the story of these collected treasures!  Well loved pieces picked on a long awaited overseas journey;  an antique painted red table found in Paris antique store, blue coral found hidden in a tiny shop along the seaside in France. Of course the black lacquered bench discovered while exploring flea markets in London had to come home for a new purpose with pretty blue linen fabric.  The royal blue and white pillows pillows add just the right touch.

Classic, clean nautical style without being obvious.  Perfect.

Notice the book that they are reading - "Fifty Places to Fly From Before You Die"... must be planning their next adventure!

Have a great Saturday everyone!  We are off to Livermore, California to do a little wine tasting.

Love this little spot with the bright red and cobalt blue pillows! I grew up in Livermore...it is my hometown. Hope you had a lovely day.

Caron, we were just up in Victoria for Swiftsure weekend (our anniversary) - you would have loved it! All of the gorgeous sailboats, the party in the Inner Harbour, wonderful beach vistas everywhere you look, floating houses, great food and wine...maybe you and Tom need to do an article on Victoria B.C.! It's so much fun as a get-away. Happy weekend to both of you.

The colors are so fresh and clean together. I really like the vase!

I'm with you...love the style! I love the cabinet as well. I'm actually looking for a vintage upright card catalog to sore all of my craft supplies!
