Adding seashells to your interior design immediately creates the feel of a seaside cottage - here are some easy to create ideas!
Tabletop Beach - To show off a shapely shell, pour sand into a glass cylinder vase. Arrange the conch to call attention to its natural beauty. Stand the vase on its own or rest another shell or two against the base.
Star Shower - For an ocean-fresh splash in the tub, string denizens of the sea along your shower curtain. Nab shells from a beach vacation or purchase some from a crafts store. Drill a small hole in the starfish (no need to drill holes in the sand dollars -- they have one), string them on cotton cording, and loop the cording through the shower rings. You can also hang individual shells from lengths of twine or ribbon.
Shell Bowl - 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.
Shells On Display - 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.
A Textural Display - Shells appear in a wide range of neutral tones including white, beige, tan, and brown. Display their variety in an arrangement like this one -- piled high with texture and interest in clear glass vases.
Gone Shelling - This home captures the essence of the beach in a nontraditional spot. Conch shells line these stairs, giving family members a place to show off their favorite shell treasures.
