word 2 of 5 – seashore inspiration
In a recent post, I mentioned Vicky Dar’s recipe for an interior based on five descriptive ingredients. It’s great because each person selects their own ingredients – the five words that most closely describe the feeling you want to achieve in your space.
One of my five is romance. While romance is not a prominent theme in our home, it’s something I’m striving to achieve.
The second, and most promient descriptor in our home is seashore. For us, seashore not only defines a range of prevalent colors (shades of blue, white and brown) but also defines a relaxed, uncomplicated feeling. The way you feel when you’re at the beach.
Here’s an example–a candelabra I made from a large driftwood branch resting on the fireplace mantle.
Or the seashell fragments scattered across the dining table as a simple adornment at our dinner party last weekend.
Or the antique shed door we converted to a coffee table for the bedroom (I clearly have an addiction to these driftwood candelabras..!).
Or tidbits from our seashell collection literally throughout the house.
Subtle reminders of the seashore all around, loosely woven into the fabric of home.
And just to round out the seashore inspiration, a quick look at some fantabulous room imagery from houzz.
What are a few of your five words?
