Sailing Style: Nautical Inspirations for the Home
Sailing Style: Nautical Inspirations for the Home
In her previous six books, celebrated author and designer Tricia Foley has introduced readers to such romantic and old-fashioned pleasures as Having Tea and a White Christmas. Now, in Sailing Style, she pays homage to the romantic and historical influence of seafaring traditions on home design. Combining a look backward with her own trademark and forward-looking style—fresh, simple, and inimitable—Foley offers design inspiration for all those who long for a cottage by the sea.

Every chapter showcases both the practical design solutions of sailors and sailboats as well as living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, and design details that express a nautical style. “Setting Sail” reveals the functional beauty of sailboats and their basic elements—wood, cloth, and rope. “Shipshape” demonstrates how onboard necessities such as decks, skylights, bunks, and galleys worked their way into homes on land. In “A Seafaring Legacy,” Foley captures the timeless appeal of such marine details as brass hardware, maps, and weather vanes. Finally, “Coastal Living” explores the allure of lighthouses and boathouses, not only as vernacular architecture but as converted contemporary homes. A resource section provides valuable direction for finding stores, ports of call, and suitable nautical reading.

In the first book to examine our sailing heritage in culture and as a lifestyle, Foley has also created a nostalgic wish book and design guide for an enduring approach to everyday living. In Sailing Style, the lure of the sea has never been more irresistible.

Attic makeover: Before & after Hamptons loft, from Elle Decor
Attic makeover: Before & after Hamptons loft, from Elle Decor
When Scott Currie bought his Southampton home, the attic was bare and minimally insulated and electrified. Currie spent four years renovating the house, transforming the attic into a light-filled loft. The bamboo chair and ottoman, purchased on, are upholstered in 'Chant' linen-cotton, by Lulu DK. The Norman Cherner desk chair belonged to Currie’s parents and the rear wall features nautical-knot charts and an array of antique bottles; the ceiling beams were reclaimed from an 18th-century house, and the salvaged-pine floors are studded with wrought-iron nails.

In Scott Currie's Southamptons poolhouse, walls are painted Harbor Haze and doors are Spellbound, both by Benjamin Moore. Period windows and vintage hardware were used throughout, the floor is paved in bluestone, and vintage signal flags, found on eBay, are displayed above the doors. The folding stool is 19th century.
