When I first spotted this image from Mason and Serena's Sunset Beach Bungalow House Tour
, I was inspired by the colorful buoys draped over the railing of their deck. I started to look for a resource for them and stumbled upon… the nautical supply store. Not only do they stock the buoys that I was on the hunt for, you can also purchase glass floats, nautical signal flags, maps and oars. While these items can be kitschy if overdone (unless, of course you happen to own a cottage by the beach) they can be a great focal point in a room if well incorporated.
