With the weather warming up, thoughts of sandy beaches and blue oceans come to mind. Since we don’t all live by the beach, using seashells as accents inside your home can bring thoughts of blue skies and warmer weather. I love decorating with shells because they’re easy, inexpensive, and you can use a lot for a totally coastal look, or just a couple for a more subtle look.
Another way you can use and incorporate shells is to attach them to an object or piece of furniture, a practice called “Coquillage”.
I thought this idea was really cute and a little different than the normal – seashell trim!
Using seashells, or for that matter coral, starfish, or sea fans to decorate with can be so easy, and there are so many possibilities.
