I own one tote of fall decor, which is a 50% increase since we bought the house. A little goes a surprisingly long way.
To me, summer = beach, beach = seashells. I have quite a collection – Panama City, North Myrtle Beach, Cannon Beach, several beaches in California and a beach in Mexico are represented.
Most of them have sat in my craft drawer or a jar on the bathroom counter, just waiting to a creative way to be displayed. Thank you, Pinterest.
In my summer bucket list post, I mentioned painting seashells. This is such an easy craft, it doesn’t really need a tutorial, but since I put my own spin on the Pinterest versions, and the shells turned out so well, I really just wanted an excuse to post pictures.
Since we’ve enjoyed 100 degree temperatures lately, I’ve often found myself daydreaming of a beach escape. Here in the desert, the prevailing color scheme is various shades of brown. Interiors are generally beige, cream, or deep colors like burgundy, gold, and dark green. It’s not my style at all. I’m a big fan of light, open, bright spaces. My favorite style is a mix of Norwegian, French country, cottage, and with beach house touches.
I’ve been brainstorming ways to use my collection of seashells, and also ways to bring in subtle beachy style without going crazy with lighthouses and surfboards. For today’s Beauty Find Friday, here’s some of my favorite beachy decor items I’ve found on Etsy.
I love the vintage vibe of this hand embroidered hoop art.
I know this isn’t decor, but isn’t it amazing?! Copper Starfish Coral Ring.
These wall hooks fit perfectly with the anchor trend.
