Last weekend I was able to get away... to here!

My friend (and loyal OUTSIDE THE WORKROOM reader) Allison and I left our husbands and babies and went to the lake for a sleepover. It was heavenly!
You can bring a little lake living into your own home - even if you don't live near a body of water. Here are a few suggestions...
1. Keep it casual... no formal spaces needed!
2. Incorporate anything old, worn, used, or weathered.
3. Nautical... yet subtle. Add a few nautical elements. (But use sparingly!)

4. Create an outdoor place
5. Use natural elements...

And if you do it all right it should come out something like this...
