"Whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off—then, I account it high time to get to sea." –Moby Dick
While you may not be knocking off hats in a literal sense, after being cooped up all winter most of us could use a bit of an escape. Take a hint from Melville with this Sea Creature inspired décor.
