Sneak Peak: Fall 2008

August 25, 2008

Fall? Already? Schools are already back in session? Monday Night Football starts in two weeks? Well, it's still a hot August summer here by the beach, which makes it hard to be thinking about fall, much less shooting our new holiday line. There's still much photography work to do, but here's a quick peak at some of my favorite new luxuries you'll be seeing on NauticalLuxuries.com in September.
Nantucket Dreaming Bedding
Nantucket Dreaming Bedding
For the Coastal Bedroom: I can't get enough of blue and white, here by the water, and I love the luxurious feel of this quilted cotton Nantucket Dreaming bedding collection. Everything from quilts, shams, pillows, throws and dust ruffles has that comfortable qulited look.

We're also making a "What Happens Onboard..." sign. Both are exclusive to Nautical Luxuries - and I've already put aside half-a-dozen for Christmas gifts to friends, family, and a few boating friends.

For the Lido Waterfront: I can certainly see this exquisite Sea Urchin Lamp in the study or living room of the gorgeous waterfront homes here on the island. A stunning coastal accent with a super-chic 'burnt coral' shade- fabulous with a neutral color scheme!

After seeing these terrific new fans, I went home and immediately retired my old house fan. Finally! Some clever and talented designer has come up with a decorative solution to a truly boring household appliance! The lighthouse floor fan is so nice, (All have wood bases), you may never want to put it away for the winter! [caption id="attachment_136" align="alignright" width="300" caption="Sail Trophy Vases"]Sail Trophy Vases[/caption] For the Sailing Enthusiast: What a great find! Beautiful crystal vases gracefully arching in the shape of a sail are a wonderful home accent and - engraved- make a truly unique trophy! (Somebody tell the yacht club trophy chair.)

New Sandy Shells Pet Bed
For the Nautical Pet: Even our office mascot, Mr. Jones, couldn't resist a mid-day snooze on one of our new pet beds - and I couldn't resist the candid photo. We're introducing this great new seashell design in blue or sand, as well as a more traditional nautical compass rose and rope design - also in two color options.
Needlepoint Baby Slippers[/caption] For the Littlest Crew: It was unanimous among the ladies here, that these are the cutest things we've seen lately! Needlepoint baby shoes in nautical and coastal designs. Just too cute! For the Planet: I may not be at the forefront of the green movement yet, but I enjoy products like this one that help me do my part with a major dose of nautical style! Love the sail number on this recycled Dacron sail cloth tote, and the long handles, and the stiffness of the fabric that doesn't collapse when you're putting in the first groceries. Another great environment-friendly find are these terrific and boldy graphic pillows. Hand-painted on unbleached cotton, they're made from the finest quality green materials available. Fluffy, poly-fill inserts are made from plastic bottles rescued from landfills. We'll have five different coastal designs available. The complete Fall Collection - not to mention Holiday gifts and decor - launches online next month. Can't wait! DJ
