Lake House Decor

Living so close to a lake (one of the largest on the east coast) we have learned to love nautical themed things, not only in our clothes and accessories (uh, hey boat shoes and navy blue stripes) but in our home decor as well. I've collected some inspirations over time, being that this is not a new love. Living in Florida, even at a young age, I very quickly adapted to the area and learned to love anything that had to do with the water, accompanied by sandy beaches or not.
Now that we've finished painting upstairs and it's time to decorate, we've decided to do more of a lake/nautical/water theme in the loft/middle room. It already has cute pictures advising people to not miss out on the fun and get in the water and an antique oar the boyfriend had laying around the farm. It's coming together, slowly but surely and I have plenty of ideas to lead the way.

 Love sail boats. We had a larger one in Florida in the house- gorgeous and always a reminder of the water.

 How cute is this boat shelf?!

 I know this wouldn't go in the middle room, but I couldn't resist.

 Love the use of rope, for big or small things around the house.

 These can be made with rope, glue and balloons!

  Rope lights are amazingly beautiful, functional and can be not only a lighting source, but a statement piece in just about any room.

I would love to make this into a framed picture.

  2. I really like your rope stair rails. I can see the cleats on the floor but what did you use to secure the rope to the handrail?
