July is the month for festivals - and Krisha Plauche of Onboard Interiors particularly enjoyed taking part in the Marblehead Festival of Arts which occurs in her hometown of Marblehead, Mass. She used many of her fabric scraps to give the children a sense of how colors, texture and designs fit together.

With the help of her lovely daughter, she made offered her expert hand to the kids and let the fabrics speak for themselves.

Getting Comfortable about a 40-foot Cruisers

Krisha Plauche of Onboard Interiors

My clients wanted to update the stock bedding onboard and here are the results of the interior re-fit of a 40-foot cruiser. New bedding included sheets, blankets, bedspreads, drapes and a privacy panel. The aft cabin included light blocking drapes and panel for privacy and comfort for the daughter’s afternoon naps! The forward bedspread fabric included a high end chenille blend. Owners are very happy onboard! And everything looks and feels amazing!
