To me, this would get old very quickly - and yes, to me it cheapens it, but I don't want to hurt the owner's feelings - to each her own! It seems like an ok idea for the beach or lake. I'm not really into "themes" such as nautical, etc. - I think they get tiring...but lots of people like this type of thing. I also absolutely hate (sorry everyone) all these signs people now put up in there houses - things like "Simple" or "Fresh" in the kitchen or "Keep Calm and Carry On" in the family room....I really hope this trend passes by fast. I remember when I first saw it a few years ago and thought, "this will go away fast" - and it hasn't yet. I always feel like "use ropes" or "use buttons" or all these signs are all about someone who wants us to buy all this stuff...get tired of it...and then buy something else in 5 years. Maybe that shows my age!:)

Angie, I agree. I think some of these rope elements might look really nice in a beach home with a nautical theme. But if the owner is happy with their room, that's all that matters.

I didn't want to hurt anyone's feeling either, which is why I didn't say which photos I didn't like. I actually found some of these interesting.

I see signs at spas and such, and I don't mind that. I don't understand people painting words on their walls, or hanging signs. I don't know anyone that does this, but I have seen them in magazines, HGTV, and online.

I still really love looking at other peoples' decorating style. I'm sure to a lot of people, my home would be quite boring.
