The common, everyday dream of getting on a boat and floating out to sea is, as we see it, only half the fantasy. Our real joy would come from returning to shore to find a rustic, suitably aged coastal chic home ready to welcome us with abundant curtains and bedding awash with beautiful nautical furnishing fabrics. This loving for by-the-sea living is basically what every beach hut gift shop and bathroom ornament aisle is trying to sell to us; a miniature, liveable lighthouse which is conveniently free of any problems that would normally plague people living by the sea (tourists, high maintenance costs, ridiculous insurance prices...) in lieu of a permanent, therapeutic presence of salt water and fresh sea air.
The general un-attainability of such cabin quarters are just a fact of life, but luckily, home furniture specialists like Clarke & Clarke have an abundant of nautical furnishing fabrics that let you turn your dry, boring abode into a coastal home welcoming of any skipper. Whether your preferences lie in boats, ropes or just general...sort of sea-like colours, these following drape are small reminder of how beautifully blue life at sea can be.
