Pinstripes, navy blazers, boating shoes? With yachts, sailboats and high seas vacations as your muse, it's no wonder that nautical fashions never dock.
Are you desperate to do something unique with a white, bland wall? If you are looking for some direction, try hanging a large nautical compass (above), or furnish your Georgetown studio with a pair of nautical french stools (below).

Or if traditional boating-style doesn't float your boat and you feel like you've completely lost your way, globes are experiencing a revival. Check out this globe's modern update (it's called an "earthsphere" these days) with a sculpted acrylic base. Oh, how worldly...

Feeling knot-y? This rope knot doorstop will keep those sea winds from blowing your door close. As the holidays approach, remember you're not obligated to Christmas red, glitter and nutcrackers: Why not consider unconventional decorations that mesh with your decor, like these blue glass fishing balls?

You can anchor-down with a little navy-and-white outdoor pillow, or fill an empty nook or a display case with this model sailboat. Each of these items are a available for under $40 -- an economical tweak.

Ships ahoy! Hey, dirty sailor, it's never too late to go fish.
