Bring a bit of the ocean to your home décor by incorporating shells collected from past beach trips. Better to have those unique mementos out where you can enjoy them rather than tucked away in a box.
I often cluster shells together to give them more of a “wow” factor…bowls or glass hurricanes filled with shells or shells gathered under a cloche. I also like to highlight a single shell on a stand or urn. Even the simplicity of a solo starfish on a stack of books is beautiful.
So dig out those shells and get going on décor that’s free, easy and quick to display. Just be sure to place shells beyond the reach of dogs. I learned the hard way; my black lab enjoyed chewing off two legs on a starfish. That briny scent is hard for dogs to resist!
