Seashells

“Sally sells seashells by the seashore.  
The shells Sally sells are surely from the sea.”

Although I cannot say the above tongue twister three-times fast, I can decorate with Sally’s proverbial seashells! The temperatures in NYC have been rising, the mercury has reached a lovely 79 degrees fahrenheit, and I found my thoughts drifting to the tidal patterns of the shoreline. Oh to be on a beach!

Chevron, Seashells, White Sofa, White Glossy Tray, Turquoise

Baby Blue, White Sofa, Mosaic Mirror, Framed Coral

This beach abode is elegant and pure. The airy, white chairs, mantle and blinds allow the light to flow freely. Many of the textile details have an almost chinoiserie vibe. The framed coral samples on the wall, and drift wood in the fireplace keep this place from looking too polished and cliche. Image via Heather Scott Home & Design.

Moroccan Pouf, Lilac, Seashells, Purple Velvet

Power couple Ali Wentworth and George Stephanopoulos share their eclectic pad with Elle Decor. Inspired by vintage issues of National Geographic and their world travels, Wentworth’s collection of  lilac sea fans, coral, and shells lines the minimal, cream shelves. If you have ever met met, or gone antiquing with yours truly, you will know that my dream is to live in a room with hundreds of specimen containers, cloches and chemistry sets. All of this is tied together with lilac accents and a purple, moroccan pouf. Photography by Simon Upton.
