What Houzz contributors are saying:

Stop No. 1: The Hipditch House, St. John's, Newfoundland. The first part of this tour takes us to what CapeRace Founder Ken Sooley calls "the 'new' of Newfoundland," on the east coast of Canada. While most of Newfoundland has been suffering from the closing of the cod fish industry (40,000 jobs were lost), St. John's (discovered by John Cabot and the oldest town in North America), is a larger city that has had an influx of cash due to oil. Nautical relics become part of the decor to remind guests of the legacy of fishing in the outports.
Samantha Schoech added this to Dip a Toe Into Modern Nautical Style
I love this display of found ocean objects. It's modern and authentic all at once.
Seek out the authentic. Nothing says "theme gone bad" more clearly than a bunch of knickknacks that are obviously not the genuine article. If you want nautical style, head to a marine supply store or an antiques shop specializing in nautical goods, and scoop up a few vintage fishing floats or lobster traps. But even with the real deal, less is definitely more!
