She Sells Seashells!

by Katie on April 21, 2011

Its official ya’ll! Summer is on its way! This has me dreaming of a beach vacation. Beautiful blue beaches, palm trees, umbrella drinks and the wonderful smell of sun-tan lotion. Ahhhhh! My eyes glazed over just thinking about it! However, my husband informed me due to all the renovation and home improvement projects I’ve decided to proceed with, my idea of visiting a tropical paradise may be just a dream for our immediate future! Well, we shall see about that!

All this thought about exotic locals has me glued to the Travel Channel waaaay more than normal! I guess if I can’t go to the beach, I’ll just bring the beach to me! Well, not exactly…But, it has got me thinking about shell, coral and beach inspired home decor. Shell and coral accents are a unique and beautiful way to add interest and color to your home. Each piece has an interesting and organic shape that’s one of a kind!

Adore this hand-painted coral pillow. I love the pairing of royal blue and shades of coral on white silk. Very chic!

Very cool coral accents. Most of this stuff is currently at ZGallerie.

This white coral lamp with Lucite and chrome base is too die for gorgeous! (At least in my opinion!)
Very high-end beachy bathroom. I just can’t decide if the shell sink is a bit over kill. None the less, it’s a neat concept!

 Yes  yes, I know it’s not home decor. But it is very pretty!  I definitely “Desire…”  However in this case, there will be no “Acquire”!

What are your plans for the summer? How about a little beachy inspiration in your home?

Wow! Another, thank you . .

I am adding this color to the den (w/coral, etc.) and am extremely happy with the results.
Again, appreciate . . the inspiration!
