Roping in nautical

Nautical in combination with the geometric trend is coming into fashion and every second lady you see on the street will be wearing a stripey top (me included). In interiors, the theme includes:

  • bold red, white and blue colours
  • sea creature motifs such as fish, lobsters and whales
  • lots of shells and coral
  • rope and its lovely knotted-ness.

I've been spotting a few rope-inspired products - looks like I'm not the only one that loves the texture created by multiple strands braided together and the different shapes its flexible form makes.
