A trendsetting consultant for Polo Ralph Lauren and Target, and a perennial favorite on the Clarkson Potter list, Tricia Foley evokes the history and romance of the sea in this beautifully illustrated, inspiring book. Sailing Style celebrates the design legacy of seafaring traditions and shows the many ways they can enhance home decoration. Foley reveals the timeless colors, materials, and patterns associated with sailing (such as blue and white stripes, ropes, and Nantucket-style furniture) and demonstrates the relationships between a boat's and a home's architecture (including decks, clapboard roofs and hulls, and decorative moldings). The book also pays homage to nautical collectibles as well as the simple elegance of lighthouses. With 250 full-color pictures, informative sidebars, and a complete resource section, Sailing Style is a uniquely irresistible book that captures the ingenuity and heart of the seafaring life.
