Soothing seaside décor

23 Nov 2010

Evening Seascape
This beachy nightlight emanates soothing seashore vibes. Place it in a dark hallway or a child’s room for a pretty night-time glow. Use a dried starfish collected from your holidays down to the seaside, or one purchased from a crafts store. Use a utility knife to gently scrape the back of the starfish to make it more translucent. Then glue it to the front of a standard nightlight.

Ocean Breeze
Seaside style can be accomplished in any room with any accessory. Here, a cafe curtain inspired by the sea receives a simple embellishment: shells. To create this look in your own home, simply find a cafe curtain that fits your window and adhere flat-surfaced shells with fabric glue.

Shelf Life
This is a pretty way to display large shells in a bathroom. One bowl-shaped shell is filled with a variety of shells and soaps, then topped with a pretty starfish.

Seaside Elegance
If you want to add a subtle touch of the ocean to the bathroom, shells are the perfect accessory. This bowl of pretty neutral shells displayed on the bathroom's exposed shelf looks simple, classic, and clean.

Sea View

Large shells, individually displayed, are as attractive as fine sculpture. Look for perfect pieces that will sit flat or be propped up on a stand or pedestal.
