Random touches of coastal inspiration....

Thought I'd share with you some random photos of several of my favorite coastal touches around my home.  Hope this inspires you to add a little bit of the ocean into your home....

That's my cat Nancy in her "glamour girl shot" from her photo shoot.
She is sitting on one of my living rooms chairs.
I call her Gisele because she is like a feline supermodel.  She loves the camera.
 
 


Have a coastal cool kind of day!


Linking up with Cindy for Show & Tell Friday

Love all your coastal items. I want to get a few Japanese floats. Maybe next time I go to Scott Antique Market. There is a vendor there that has all sizes.

I loveee all of your coral and all those sand dollars! Where did you get your sea fan, I love that too! Your house looks like a magazine house!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I am swooning at the colors, the object from the sea and the glass! I want to live in a room like this! I do have a small collection of glass in that lovely shade and now if I can just find a room to turn into this lovely beachy-shabby chic look I'll be in heaven!

Hi Debbie; pale hues, soft pinks and deep blues, chipped white, texatures delight, how many ways to the sea. My heart goes pitter patter, open weaves of dried seaweed, castle columns of coral reeves, didn't I meet you on the ocean bottom or was it after you washed up on the sandy white beach, we couldn't tell the dollar from the stars, layer upon layer of white chalky white -- Terri www.morningdewdrops.typepad.com

Kristi said...

Shellbelle said...

I always love seeing photos of your gorgeous home. I didn't remember that the stools were yellow, but I love them.

My fav though is the glamour shot, so cute and funny. I love the frame it's in, my mind is spinning with ideas…

Have a fantastic weekend!
