Rope detail is a great way to add a coastal or nautical look. These curtain tiebacks would be a simple detail to add to breezy white curtains. Other ways to incorporate rope might be as pillow edging or arranged artfully in a hurricane vase. You could even use heavy rope (look in a boating store) in place of a stair railing.Sources: • Restoration Hardware has rope accessories and other nautical accents. • Other rope accessories at Ballard Designs.
