Get the Look: Ship-Shape Bathroom

No matter how many times I hear that nautical motifs are back in style, I usually shy away from the somewhat stuffy look. However, after coming across this very hip Spinnaker Shower Curtain ($75) the other day, I was inspired to create a nautical-themed look that even I could love. For this Get the Look, I've decided to put together a Ship Shape Bathroom that puts a modern spin on sailboat prep. Here's how to get it.

The palette: You really don't need to reach very far beyond blue and white, but a mix of light and navy blue will keep your room from looking too yacht-y.

The lighting: Install nautical-inspired fixtures that give off bright, warm light. Brass pieces work very well, as do round sconces that echo portholes.

For the other elements and more photos,

The Fixtures: For faucets and other plumbing hardware, go with brass or brushed silver, and set the sink in teak or another wood that evokes the sides of an old sailing vessel. I love this Sonora Series Sink and Vanity, which reminds me of a ship's bow.

The accents: Here's where you can pull out the traditional nautical stripe for towels, bathmats, and curtains. Stay away from seashells in favor of deck-side decor, like rope motifs and candles that resemble old lanterns.

I'm not a big fan of nautical stuff. It's too preppy and stuffy for me.

I don't mind the shower curtain. The first thing that popped into my mind wasn't sailing though. I thought of it more as a sports jersey kind of look.
