“What’s the best way to bring the beach home?”

That’s a question we’ve been asked (and asked ourselves) way too many times to count. And while we’ve found many answers over the years, there’s a timeless thread that seems to keep popping up no matter the year or the locale. (Proof: Coastal Living covers from now and then.)

That magic little detail? Classic cabana stripes.

Versatile and chic-as-can-be, this nautical pattern can ease its way into any beach cottage on everything from rugs and throw pillows to upholstery. Whether in nautical navy, happy yellow, neutral taupe, or siren red, beach cottages just feel right when they feature a well-placed cabana stripe.
