Nautical Home Designs


Cape Breton Island is known throughout the world partly due to the fact that many Cape Bretoners leave in search of employment in all parts of the globe. A unique business that recently popped up in Halifax is run by one such transplanted Caper. Nautical Home Designs shows off the country style of Cape Breton roots in the designs and wooden creations by Candice MacEachern. Originally from Judique, Candice turned a headboard building hobby into a small business. Each of the rustic designs are handmade by the entrepreneur, demonstrating her creative eye and carpentry skills.

The decor is suitable for a variety of uses, from the living room and kitchen to the baby’s nursery. Many of the items are one of a kind and custom orders are welcome. Here are a few of the designs that are available:

Great way to organize your jewellery.


A blanket ladder is an efficient use of space.


This rustic serving tray is perfect for summer nights in Cape Breton!


Makeup and brushes are easy to find on this unique shelf.


Chevron wall arrows bring a country style to wall decor.


The designs really speak for themselves. The best part is that Candice will work with you to create designs that are unique to you and your home. Many of her customers proudly display their new decor on the Nautical Home Designs Facebook page. Here is a selection of my favourite custom pieces:

This large jewellery display was created for Boho Betty Bracelets.


I love the colour choices of this custom chevron wall design.


Many of the designs create organization in your home, like this rustic coat rack.


It is clear that Candice is passionate about her work, as she also shares unique designs that she created to decorate her own home. The personal designs are where you will find the most flair and creativity in her style, such as the headboard, coffee and end tables below:

Nautical Home Designs’ collection of custom wood decor is a breath of fresh air for interior design. Not only are the designs beautiful, but many can be used to organize or display items in your home or for your business. The talent of this entrepreneur has not gone unnoticed as a few of the designs are available for sale at Style 52 in Bayers Lake, such as the serving tray and blanket ladder.
