I grew up in Central Virginia, and thus my husband dubs me "a land lubber." While he spent his summers sailing in North Carolina, I prefered the dry ground of hunt country on the back of horse. But despite my propensity for land over sea, I fully admit I'm looking forward to living near the water in Norfolk (the city sits at 3" above sea level). I plan to draw decorating inspiration from my coastal surroundings and to me there is nothing more crisp than the classic combination of navy and white. The nautical color palate is preppy, whimsical and it doesn't have to be reserved for a child's room, if done tastefully. I'm going to cast my decorating net wide to incorporate a few seafaring accents in our first house.
