Hip Nautical Color Palette


Cabanas are useful and charming. If I got a summer cottage, I would install a few so my guests can get change and put their stuff for the day. Having a cabana helps to keep your house clutter free while you are hosting a beach party.

I was charmed by the cabana next to the pool from the June 2008 of Canadian House and Home magazine. This cabana is available at Fresh Home and Garden in Toronto.

Typical white and navy nautical stripes are not my thing. I prefer the cool turquoise with earthy red shown here.

Thanks to Alex Newman and the Canadian House and Home styling team for presenting this beach house inspired by the Hamptons. The article is titled Water Colored in the magazine.

May18th, 2008 Update:
I just realized that the same color palette is used on the luxury hammock by Henri Hall Designs.
