Bringing the Beach Cover Back

Trying to bring the beach back with you as we approach the end of summer?

New pillow slipcovers are a way to get a fresh look without much effort. We have them on our website under Casart Décor but have also added an Etsy Shop. You can check them out here:

Other ways to bring the beach back? Go for sea glass, cream and light colors.

Anne Buresh Interior Design demonstrates this well. Oh, and seashell prints also enhance the serene beach essence.

We found these shell sheets from Frontgate that also have a beautiful, beach-inspired theme.

One easy thing to add to your decor that brings the beach inside is a simple, old-fashioned, sling-back beach chair.

They can be playful but practical, in that you can easily fold them up, store and use on the next beach trip.

We found these from Gardenista.

Of course when you go beach combing, don’t forget to bring back your seashells. Here are some clever ways to display them.

Attach corals, starfish and other statement sea-finds to picture frames and caps that attach to glass vases. Even some large vases or jars can hold other seashells (source Decorist).

A clear glass base for a lamp holds lots of opportunity to display your ongoing collection that you can add to each trip.

The one we picked up at Target above works well and constantly reminds us of our more relaxing days when work gets heavy. Calming, sea-foam colored walls that mimic rain showers (on non-beach days) are a plus.

Seashells are not the only treasures you can discover. If you’re lucky enough find a beach buoy, pick it up and bring it back for a conversation starter, if not a pop of color. Note, you have to be the early bird to snag them, which is why you hardly see them on the beach, otherwise. Folks who live in beach communities love to decorate their fences with them, like Mardi Gras beads on beach babes.
