For anyone who's ever been in my home, it's no secret that I'm obsessed with nautical home style. My table settings often include items that have fish, crustaceans or navy stripes on them. I love anything that looks like it belongs in a lighthouse. A slight nod to nautical in the home can be timeless, chic and cozy. I've always taken the approach for my home that I want it to look like a country house by the sea and even though my flat is in London, it works. Various shades of blue are calming, homey and subtle while a few pops of red, yellow or green here and there can keep everything from looking too mundane. Don't get me wrong… I don't want my home to look like a a funhouse version of a beach hut… It's actually quite the contrary, but I find that beach houses are generally designed in a way that is calming and serene, something that is very welcome after spending a day in the hustle & bustle of city life.

What's your home style? Do you find a certain type of decor or vibe draws you in?
