Sunshine, sea breeze,
swaying palms, crashing waves and…
those tiny shells crunching under your feet as you walk along the shore.
What a slice of heaven.
Did you ever wish you could bottle that feeling and take it home with you?
Well, you can even if you don’t have a seaside getaway planned any time soon.
Here are my simple steps to decorating with beach inspired collections that will have you smelling the sweet salt air whenever you like.
It’s simple. 2 words is all.
BIG and WHITE.
You know the saying, LESS IS MORE right?
Seriously. It does.
So, rememeber when you’re in the mood to decorate and inspire a sophisticated seaside look…
Make a statement.
Or, dail it down a tad with a pretty driftwood pineapple.
I fell in love with that pineapple 😉 at the Southern Living showcase home!
Don’t you just love it?!
…oh, and the GIANT CLAM SHELL too!
I could practically hear the ocean in the distance when I looked at that bad boy, can’t you?
Which brings us to word 2.
Personally, I think the most elegant and dramatic way to decorate using elements inspired by the sea is to keep with all WHITE.
Think beautiful white beach sand when using table top collections throughout your home and you’ll be sure to evoke a sophisticated seaside vibe every time.
Easy. Breezy. WHITE.
