Beach Cottage Style – The One Coastal Style Item You Need for Beachy Table Decor
Thu 8th, Mar, 2012
G’day Beach Cottage girls, well I have a tablescape for you today…I haven’t done a little bit of table foofing for ages and I was recently asked in an interview (more info soon) for my quickest tip to loving your home and adding a coastal, beachy vintage vibe
…that would have to be by dressing up your table with a few white, vintage and coastal things I think.
Further to that then, I was asked the one thing to invest in for table dressing for a simple Beach Cottage look?
Hmmm, I had to ponder that…you could say I suppose, flowers, or vintage bottles, or white things, or shells…but I think a sphere goes a long way when buying accessories for your home…
…whether it is a shell ball, or a glass float style one, I think these beachy style beauties can plop coastal & interest into any look pretty quickly.
Spheres give interest, depth and shape, whether you are just adding it by the side of your bed to make it a bit nicer or you are doing a full on table…
…also here and there they look great to give a nautical look but they don’t scream out ‘Nautical Themed Decor’ …if you know what I mean…
Here I teamed a couple of them with vintage bottles, some natural materials / wood and a bunch of drugstore flowers
This is one of the best ones I have found…it’s a lovely glass accentuated with a real natural coastal feel with the interlaced natural fibre over it and a bit more unusual than those ‘buoy/float’ style ones (which I love and use too)
…when I saw this one, there was no way it wasn’t coming home with me….
So to create an easy table without too much effort that looks pretty and easy on the old coastal eye, throw together some vintage bottles, add a jug or two, some flowers and then to top it off and add some dimension add a lovely nautical sphere…
Hope you liked the tablescaping eye candy today ladies….this was another thing that came out of the de-lurk post recently…apparently a lot of you Lovely Lurkers like to see what happens when I am left to my own devices for the afternoon – with a table and a few vintage white things to play with…
…today it was nautical sphere love
Be seeing ya
