Coastal Vignettes

Now that you've seen our SUMMER COASTAL LIVING ROOM, I wanted to share with you the little details in which I tried to make my room feel more "coastal"!

Let's start with the coffee table...

Simple set-up
I moved my capiz-lined driftwood bowl I scored from TJ Maxx from the Breakfast room to here and added 3 shell-covered balls inside. I stacked up 3 coffee table books and added my magnifying glass and brass compass-like-thingy on top.

To finish it off I added my fish-shaped bowl with our pet Beta and added this brass Threshold Sand Dollar I scored at TARGET on clearance for $3.28 /3 pieces.

For one of the side table...

I changed out all the frames to wooden ones to match my driftwood lamp. I added orchid and the lotus candle to complete it.

For the console...

I moved my hubs sailboats from the library/office, and added shells and geodes I've also been displaying in the office. Backed it up with my thrift  Cherry blossom Van Gogh for the color.

For the Piano area...

I moved our canvas beach picture and changed out my frames to linen and nickel ones. I also moved the boxwood topiaries from the console to here. I love that the rope lamp on the side and the driftwood mirror from West Elm on the back, makes this are feel more coastal too!

And of course our media center...

I used grapevine branch, starfishes, a real sea sponge I scored at an antique store way back with my brass dolphin and driftwood candles, mixed up with some pictures and viola - coastal feel here too!

I hope you enjoyed this detailed look at our coastal living room!

Have  a Great Weekend!
