A fun take on Coastal Decorating!

When you think of using a Coastal style of decorating your home, you maybe think of whites with lots of nautical and ocean inspired pieces. I wanted to bring out our love for the ocean and surf in a brighter kind of way...
 
A purple sea fan is used as a back drop for silver IKEA Candle holders.

 
Some souvenirs from Venice Beach, California is used as a fireplace mantel d├ęcor that tell a story of travels.


 
Some old surf books make a perfect base for a lamp.

 
Gallery walls don't have to be just pictures arranged on a wall, it can be a collection of things that make you happy and bring back memories.

 
 This seashell wreath was a great find at HomeGoods and is used on the door on the inside of the home!
 
Now all you need is a dog and your life is complete!

Summer Deck Makeover

This Summer I wanted to bring some coziness outside! By cutting the legs off an old table from an Ikea Patio set, I turned the table into a coffee table. I painted the chairs and bench a bright white and the coffee table a cool turquoise blue. These are the results...
