Nautical Style

Nautical Style


This is the bar at the Inn at Perry Cabin. I love the polished teak top and the high gloss horizontal v joint boards. The dark wood finish on the barstools highlights it all very nicely.
This is Chesapeake nautical! Horizontal v joint boards for the wainscot, vertical bead board above it. The crown moulding is replaced by a running shelf supported by plain corbels. The mounted half hull, a few oyster cans and a ships dome sconce round it out nicely.


An end table wrapped in rope.

There are 3 elements making this “nautical”:

1. The variegated v joint planks on the wall.
2. The classic brass ship’s lantern.
3. The use of a color I call “nautical chart yellow” in a semi gloss finish with super white semi gloss trim. (Try Benjamin Moore’s “Honey Harbor” or “Bronzed Beige” to get this look.)
I guess the antique burgee in a teak frame helps too!












Flags from Yacht Clubs around the world are displayed on the ceiling beams in this dining room. Each one is mounted on a teak and carefully labeled!
