As a lover of natural coastal decor like seashells and starfish and coral, I find that I am especially fond of displaying these items in large bowls and containers…in fact, I started to realize that I had bowls and containers in almost every room of our home!
Another recent item I have been drawn to are strands of large wooden beads- they are an easy way to accent almost anything in your home, and they add a natural “earthy” look.
I really like draping a strand of wooden beads in a big bowl of seashells- like this one on our media cabinet!
A recent purchase was this large antique (19th Century) wooded dough bowl…
I have seen these used in home decor for years, and finally found one of my own!
This one has come home to live on our dining room table- it adds such a pretty natural touch and patina to the room- I filled it with enormous white conch shells and a few starfish too!
(I can’t wait to fill it with white pumpkins for fall and greenery for Christmas- such a versatile piece!)
Wishing everyone a wonderful Wednesday…thanks for stopping by the cottage!
