Set Sail for Home

The Lobster Pot
No trip to the Northeast’s craggy coastline is complete without a lobster dinner or two, or a lobster roll if you want it served the easy way!  Try a little lobster whimsy in your décor to truly capture the “downeast” nautical lifestyle in your coastal home.  York’s “Weathered Seashore” wallpaper sets a warm welcome in the entryway; it’s a great combination of lobsters and starfish to name a few and establishes a relaxed mood for your home as soon as you cross the threshold.

Tying the Knot
Want a fun take on a lattice?  So popular this year to see trellis and lattice motifs – why knot take it in a new direction with a rope design?  Clean and simple like the sailor’s bowline knot, it’s the perfect backdrop for any room in a seaside home. Pull the look together with some navy plaid, and blue and white striped bedding and our decorative Sailing Flags border, tripled stacked for more impact.  Round it out with a knotted door stop and some rope base bedside lamps; what’s knot to like!

Three Ships Come Sailing In
Truly, the gentleman’s yacht is a stately sailing vessel, its sleek lines a fluid design, its bright white sails capturing the power of the wind.  Whether racing or relaxing, a sailboat makes you one with the sea.  Pen and ink sketches, exquisite scrimshaw and masculine flannel set a classic tone to nautical décor that speaks to traditional elegance done in handsome contemporary styling.  Pair statement graphite gray tones with hints of warm neutrals for a room that is easy to add finishing touches to.

Simply Sea Garden
Whether the Atlantic, Gulf or Pacific, the sea inspires us with gorgeous shades of blue-green that interpret beautifully into home décor.  Soothing shades of softest blue like the Gulf on a warm summer day bring serenity to your home.  York captures this mood with a beautiful wall design of floating coral and pretty shells in hues that create restful spaces.  Bright seas that twinkle with lights of deep green and rich blue are the essence of the mighty Atlantic and York interprets the depth of these colors in our Lillian design; a fresh floral in sea tones that hints at Jacobean style.  And for those who prefer a more casual lifestyle that creates a relaxed environment York designed our Bartola plaid to be both beautiful, practical, and rugged as the Pacific.
