If you’re like I am, you already have a bunch of sea shells from numerous trips to the beach. The challenge is how best to display them. Here are just a few ideas to inspire you-
An old sewing cabinet is what I use to store my collection of sea shells. I lined the drawers with vintage maps and then piled the shells on top. I purposely leave the top drawer open for the curious visitor.
My ‘less is more’ approach- one giant star fish rests on the frame of a 1940’s portrait in our bedroom.
Sometimes a collection becomes a passion! Beautifully arranged by stylist/author Sibella Court.
Don’t you love this? The shells are carefully drilled with holes and then sewn onto cotton voile fabric draperies. For full instructions- ‘Interior Details‘ by Andrea Spencer.
One of the most creative ways I’ve seen for displaying shells. Narrow wooden shelves are installed to wrap around this bathroom. A beautiful shade of sea foam blue paint acts as the perfect backdrop.
