Canine + Kid: Nautical

REESE RYE

The sounds of summer are not quite heard from the brick paved streets of Savannah, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dream of salty days by the sea. This week we’re giving you the best nautical findings for canine and kid in hopes to bring that sunshine just a little bit closer.

1. Give your pup his hearty share of the ocean in these beautifully simple ceramic bowls from Cloud 7. With varying sizes for food and water, they’re both heavy enough to keep kid from causing a tidal wave in your kitchen.

2. Send a message in a bottle under your child’s sheets with this 100% lambswool water bottle cover. Hand-knit in Scotland, this cover includes a bottle to keep your little one warm whilst dreaming of sunnier days.

3. The geometric pattern on this Scandinavian wool blanket reminds us of nautical flag symbols. Known for its softness, it’s the perfect throw to drape over a crib or rocking chair.

4. What sea dog would be seen out in public without its nautical rope leash? With a 3-strand construction and handmade leather tag, this leash is bound to keep your dog close when even the most tempting seagull walks by.

5. Give your pup something tough to chew on after working the decks with this cotton rope bone toy. Have a teething canine? Simply wet, freeze, and let them have at it.

6. Let your kid be the talk of the docks with these vintage-inspired, striped swim trunks. The stretch nylon is fast-drying, which means less of the ocean in your home and more where it belongs.

7. Perfect for telling stories under the stars, the whale pal from Coral and Tusk is embroidered on durable linen and completely resistant to imaginary harpoons.

Project Breakdown: Lady Library

When it came time for the Mercers to finish out their home’s full renovation, Caroline knew she wanted a dedicated space for both her and her youngest daughter Louise to spend time together. The last round of design work gave the oldest daughter, Margaret, a hip bedroom of her own with an adjacent playroom for hanging out after school with friends. As round two came to fruition, it was time for the youngest to have a perfect place for crafts, homework, and an after school escape. The mother and daughter team envisioned a feminine, creative space where they could bond over glitter and popcorn, with the one requirement to infuse the color pink. The result is a Lady Library; a girly yet sophisticated study for both work and play.

Apart from a place to lounge and hang, we designed a streamlined desk surface that seamlessly extends from one of the flanking, open etageres. This allows for a craft-worthy table surface with enough room leftover to house a computer and hidden drawers below for when homework time strikes. Opposite, a fully custom cabinetry system with minimal leather pulls to house bulky storage bins along with narrow pull-out drawers; perfect for large sheets of colored paper.

Check out our creative process below as well as the sources you need to get the look:
