Want to bring the beach and summer to your tiny corner of the world?
You really can enjoy coastal decor in small spaces.
All you need is a spot to evoke the memory of wind on your face and waves splashing on the beach.
It could be the corner of your desk, a spot on your bookcase, or the top of your piano as I’ve shown here.
There are just a few necessary ingredients.
A container. Beach or play sand. A sea shell or tiny piece of driftwood.
This is a vintage turquoise glass bowl that has been sitting in my cupboard, for years, waiting. Waiting to show off. Waiting to be useful. Waiting to help create the perfect moment. Waiting to show you how you can enjoy the memories of summer and coastal decor in small spaces.
All I did was sprinkle a little sand in the bottom of the bowl, place a sea shell on the sand, and set the bowl on a few books with some complementary colors along with another shell.
If you have a fancy shell to display. That would be terrific. But, not necessary.
Seriously, I am amazed at how much I enjoy this little moment which reminds me of crashing waves and and sandy toes.
It’s August and many people are gearing up for the new school year and fall activities.
But, it’s still summer, and the best days on the beach are in August.
Enjoy it now. Live in the moment. Fall will get here soon enough.
At the very least, close your eyes and remember the last time you enjoyed your favorite coastline. Ahhhhh!
Breathe. Breathe in the goodness of the memory.
And for a moment…the cares of life can be washed out to the sea.
Create a refreshing summer moment. Or two, or three.
Create coastal decor in small spaces.
Wishing you an extraordinary moment of refreshment.
