Hi, everyone, I’m Susi and I write as a guest blogger for DesignShuffle.com, a fabulous social media site that promotes interior designers and their work from around the world. My writing focuses on things I’m passionate about: interior design, decorating ideas , home furnishings, gardening, travel and art. I get to look at gorgeous things all day and write about them. I’m a very lucky girl!
Thank you for inviting me and Design Shuffle to visit Sally Lee by the Sea today. I’m excited to share some beautiful interiors that include boats and ships in the décor. Beautiful boats create an instant nautical feeling in any room. Hope you enjoy!

An antique ship model greets guests and family in the foyer of this traditional home. Look for vintage and antique ship models on eBay, at flea markets and antique shows.

The crystal chandelier in the shape of a ship gives a fantasy quality to this foyer. Ship chandeliers date back centuries when ships and sailing were the modes of world travel.

A more literal interpretation of a ship on a ceiling than the ship chandelier is in this whimsical room with a rowboat mounted on the ceiling. What do you think? Love it or is it too much? Will this be added to your favorite interior designs file?

For a child’s room a large scale boat to hold toys is delightful and charming. Would you believe this one is made of cardboard? A clever DIY project from Hutch Studio.

For a young sailor, a boat shaped bed is a dream come true. A charming wood boat bed from Pottery Barn anchors this nautical themed room.

A ship model above the bar of this outdoor patio space hints at nautical adventures in tropical seas. The ship gives a nice nod to the sea without being too themey.

Another beautiful crystal ship chandelier in an eclectic space. Many churches in seaside fishing towns, especially around the North Sea, hung a ship model in the nave. A very interesting tradition and a lovely interior design idea.

Nautical art or Maritime art, recalls the glamour and nostalgia of the boating life. Popular in the 19th century, maritime art can range from sailing to naval battles to scenes of the sea.
