Create the look: Hang buoys, yacht pennants, and old lighthouse lanterns to telegraph nautical charm. Choose rough-hewn materials, like jute for a rug. And use bits of sailcloth or canvas for throw pillows or upholstery. Give walls a slick of bright white paint, which “instantly brings a light, summery feeling to any interior.” Limit your palette to three or four colors—a neutral base with graphic hues “like navy or red, to make things pop.” INFO Items from Christopher Home (415/435-0111), unless otherwise noted.
