anchor your home with these simple updates

I love simple details that personalize your home and these Anchor Wall Stencils I found on Amazon are a very simple project to give a room character this summer… or all year long. Another simple idea is to add a door knocker like this brass anchor knocker. They are not just for front doors though, I recently toured a home where they had put a small brass shell door knocker on their powder room. It was a memorable detail of the house.

And of course as I’m always telling clients, throw pillows are such a simple way to add a pop or color or in this case a nautical theme to a room. I like this Anchor Pillow by Thomas Paul, it’s a classic design. I change my throw pillows with the seasons- I have cotton and linen pillows for spring and summer and wool, cotton cable-knit and faux fur for fall and winter. I mix solids and patterns for visual interest. -Lynn Butler Beling
