Things I Love Thursday: Put A {Boat} On It

Welcome to a new weekly feature here at A Heartful Home-- Things I Love Thursday! This week, I'm swooning over the lovely nautical touch that a simple sailboat brings!

Is it just me, or are sailboats the new birds? You may have heard the saying, "if you want to sell it, put a bird on it". :) (And you know how much I love birds!) Well, lately I've been spotting sailboats everywhere!  Long the staples of beach houses and coastal cottages everywhere, these sleek model yachts bring an aura of distinction with them. But you don't have to own a summer home on Nantucket to enjoy the breath of sea air that these gleaming vessels bring! Take a look...

As you can see, a sailboat blends easily with any style-- from cottage to loft, rustic to refined! So if you're looking to add a touch of fresh air to your decor, just PUT A BOAT ON IT!

What do you think? Are you ready to jump on the sailboat/nautical bandwagon? Or does it just not float your boat? ;)
