I named my style of decorating, "Swedish Beach House" years ago when I was assembling furniture and linens for our new house. Painted tables, oval back chairs and plate racks coupled with a seashore palette of cream, shell pink, and blue gray.
This holiday season I wanted to add some sparkle in unexpected places around the house. I decided that if I am truly a Swedish Beach House, I should have more shells around!
I took an inexpensive container of shells from the craft store, painted Sobo glue on them and then glittered away with a collection of Martha Stewart fine glitter from Michaels craft store. They dried in minutes and you can see that I have them displayed in an antique dish.
When the sun shines into my family room, this display actually twinkles!
Trust me, if you want to add a little gentle fabulousness to your house this year, try glittering something.
