Creating a Beach Cottage Feel with Shells

In the boutique, we have a beach cottage theme going on for our seasonal display which will hopefully spark some ideas for your own homes. Here are several snapshots of different pieces that are both simplistic and creative ways to decorate with shells and common all-season objects.

1. Glass terrarium - add a bed of sand, shells, beach pebbles, driftwood, sea glass, etc.

2. Vintage vanity mirror/tray (this one we painted a pale cottage blue) with mosaic glass votive cups and scattered shells.

3. Shells tousled along a lamp base.

4. Shell-tied votive cups atop another vintage vanity mirror

5. Dress up the garden (or inside) with shells inside a birdbath.
