I love adding nautical and beachy accents to my living room decor in the summer months. A neutral color palette in the living room makes the aqua colored accents stand out beautifully.
This small metal blue pail from the Dollar Store makes a wonderful beachy candle holder. I painted a black trim to the top of the pail:
Hot glued some twine and sea shells around the top and bottom of the pail:
Filled it up with sand with a "Rock" candle (Dollar Store) placed inside :
“One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach; one can collect only a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few.”
--Anne Morrow Lindbergh
I printed some map images from The Graphics Fairy to wrap the books:
Stacked map covered books tied up in burlap-look ribbon:
Books add wonderful layering to a vignette:
The little birdie looks quite happy on top of the candle stick:
A ball of shells in a grapevine nest:
Elements that make a vignette:
A vintage mirrored tray makes a wonderful base for everything:
I love the distressed look of this tray from Home Goods:
This old ottoman badly needed a makeover:
Few yards of fabric and upholstery trims:
Transforms it from drab and boring to light and summery:
Before adding the trim:
It was a simple and easy makeover. And the trim finishes it off very nicely, don't you think?
Loving the new transformation:
A wonderful spot to display my tray vignette:
I love decorating with trays. There are so many ways to use them and are very useful in creating instant vignettes:
I hope you liked the summery accents in my living room. It has been raining quite heavily for the last few days and that has kept my yard work on hold. Thanks for taking the time to visit me and for your lovely comments.
