From mermaids to vintage ship anchors, we're crazy for all things nautical this spring. Thankfully, local boutiques are big on the trend, too, and Mix:Home, Elm & Iron and Bungalow Home had some of our favorite sea-inspired pieces.

1. Decorative Buoys

These wood replica buoys from Clintonville's Mix:Home come in a variety of sizes and hues, but we love this ocean-influenced combination of blues. It's a subtle way to give your space an "at the beach" feel without overcommitting to the trend. $12 to $59, mix-home.com

2. Anchor DoormatDust off your shoes on this navy and cream rug from Elm & Iron, located in Clintonville. It's a great addition to a hall or a mudroom that lacks character, or it can easily transition into a statement piece for the kitchen. $45, elmandiron.com

3. Jumbo Kiri JarBungalow Home-which has locations in the Short North, Powell and New Albany-sells these simple yet gorgeous glass urns. The rope lends a nautical vibe to the piece, which looks great as a coffee table centerpiece or near the foot of an end table. $96, bungalowhome.com

4. Vintage Ship Anchor Elm & Iron is a shop that revels in finding one-of-a-kind items, like this vintage ship anchor. The perfect prop for a corner, it becomes an instant conversation piece. $149, elmandiron.com

5. Ship LightFor industrial-decor lovers and history fans alike, this vintage ship light, also from Elm & Iron, comes from an actual naval vessel. Use an Edison bulb for added impact. $120, elmandiron.com

6. Mermaid Bookends For an unexpected touch of whimsy, these turquoise ceramic bookends add instant style to bookshelves. Mermaid decor is big at Elm & Iron; the shop also sells a cast-iron mermaid wall hook (hang your jacket on her upturned tail) and a nearly life-size wood mermaid sculpture. $54, elmandiron.com
