Prints Charming: Make Your Way Toward these Bold, Block-Printed Pieces

For those end-of-summer moments when we just don’t want to let go of the beach quite yet, we’re turning to this gallery of block-printed, nautical pieces  from our Dermond Peterson Boutique. Founded by two sisters, Sandra Dermond and Susan Peterson, each vibrant print is made by hand using remarkably color-fast, environmentally sensitive ink to keep that sand-and-surf sensibility going year-round.

1. What is it that’s so quirky and endearing about these graphic seahorses? While the answer eludes us, too – this jaunty print works not in only, say, the kid’s bathroom, but also the living room or master bedroom (especially opposite a white, linen sofa).

2. Throw this delightfully crisp pillow on a denim couch for a subtle nod to those childhood summers spent in tide pools up to your knees.

3. While this runner calls to mind a beach house dinner party, the dark blue color palette and clean outlines makes it appropriate for landlocked homes. Use it as a way to add a little fun to dining room formality.
