Hello friends! I’ve been head down in the proverbial weeds these days, trying to pull together aaaaalllll the design details for our cottage build. As I mentioned in my last few posts, I am aiming for a coastal or nautical cottage vibe with this summer home. As I’ve been searching for coastal decorating ideas for the cottage, I couldn’t help but notice how one simple thing kept appearing: rope decor!
I’ve always loved how some simple sisal rope can elevate a room from basic to deliciously coastal. But I had no idea just how many different ways it could be used. I thought I’d share 10 rope decor ideas that stood out to me. They’d all make perfect additions to a coastal cottage.
1/ Rope Decor Shelves
First up, in my rope decor round-up: shelves! These wooden shelves hanging from simple knotted rope feels quintessentially coastal cottage. These would be an easy diy project!
2/ Rope Decor Drawer Pulls
3/ Rope Toilet Paper Holder
4/ Rope Decor Staircase Railing
5/ Rope Decor Bunk Railing
Just like on a staircase, knotted rope can also be used as bunk bed railings! This would look perfect in a lakeside cottage bunk room.
6/ Rope Lighting
7/ Rope Bed Posts
8/ Rope Decor Drapery ‘Hardware’
9/ Rope Decor Mirrors
This rope-wrapped mirror feel like you’re looking through a ship’s porthole.
