Didn’t know this was an actual day of celebration? Well now you know!

And to honor and express gratitude for the maritime industry and all that it does for the country, consider adopting a nautical theme with your home decor.

What does that mean? You can go with pillows and rugs with decorative anchors or nautical stripes on them. Or set the dining room table tonight with glasses, plates and place mates that feature sailing or ocean motifs, like lighthouse, boats and the like.

The best place to dress up the home with that maritime feel is the bathroom, that designated aquatic area. A new set of striped towels or a shower curtain that screams of the sea will accomplish this goal.

Have fun with bringing out this new look in your home. It give even the most landlocked of dwellings an ocean cottage air.
