Go to the Coast

I love that items and elements from "life on the shore" are becoming popular touches in interior design. Keep your eye out and I think you will notice this more and more.

Framed shell images, heavy white "coral" pieces for display on a bookshelf, even shells themselves to fill a vase or arrange on a table.

My weakness is shell-covered boxes - I practically have a collection by now and I think that they are gorgeous! I'll photograph one soon to show you.

The next time you are looking for something to add interest to your living room...go to the coast.

Native Aboriginal women in Australia make beautiful things from tiny shells; it is part of one clan's culture. They sometimes sell them at the markets in Sydney.

I love shells and anything nautical!
