We are fortunate to live just a mile from the Atlantic ocean, which we enjoyed visiting this past Sunday. Seagulls, splashing, sand and seashells beckoned us on a gorgeous, breezy day. During this time of year I love to decorate with reminders of the ocean. Our living room is enhanced with the soft pastel colors of seashells...
...like this seashell wreath I made a few years ago, now hanging by cheesecloth:
The pale blue coverlet I scored at the flea market (with my dear friends) fits the antique daybed perfectly:
I thought the colors on this pink pillow resembled those on pale seashells...
St. Therese presides over a seashell filled with powder blue floral pebbles.
I enhanced some of the pebbles with glittered crosses:
The mantel hosts a glass vase with sea shells, while fresh hydrangeas and portraits of our children rest nearby:
Our talented neighbor painted these portraits from photos we had taken of the children at the ocean. That was 3 years ago - I miss how small they were.
Silver cups and delicate paper flowers made by yourangil.etsy.com rest on this shelf:
It is a peaceful room to take in a summer breeze. Hope you are enjoying a restful summer!
