Beach House Decorating

Since I love anything about the beach I thought I would search around Etsy to see what I could find in beach decor.  Here's my Etsy beach finds:

a sweet little "Life's a Beach" sign for your entryway. 
Primitive Country Sign

Shell collection in an antique soda crate

How about a seashell collection?

This beautiful seashell collection is made using an antique soda crate and carefully selected shell specimens. The "cabinet" is an antique find: an old Pepsi crate. The outside is a grey color, almost whitewashed with a red Pepsi Cola logo. Each of 24 "cubbies" holds a unique seashell specimen. Perfectly worn and rustic.
Seashell Table Lamp

 Here's a nice table lamp decorated with seashells and aqua blue glass.  This would be really pretty in a beach house. This seashell lamp is made using the traditional stained glass method. Every lamp is a unique creation. Soothing Aqua glass gems are Interwoven throughout the shade.

Starfish Watercolor

Who doesn't love starfish?  Here is a lovely print to decorate your beach house walls. This print is a reproduction of an original watercolor painting by Kelly Bermudez. It is printed on Hahnemuhle Fine Art paper which is high quality, beautiful and Certified Archival. The print looks very much like an original watercolor painting

Heart Twig Wreath with Seashells

Here is a twig heart wreath from my Angels and Everlastings Etsy Shop with assorted seashells and sea glass.  This heart shaped twig wreath is embellished with seashells and sea glass and measures approximately 18" across from tip to tip. This wall hanging is perfect for rustic home decor. If you love the beach and nautical decor this wreath is for you
Jewelry Holder or Key Rack

Seashell jewelry holder or key rack.  Brighten up your vanity, bathroom, bedroom, closet, mudroom, or home with this beautiful jewelry or key holder. Use It as a fun, stylish jewelry rack to hang up your most treasured, or well-worn pieces. No more digging through a box to get just the right one!
This also can be used by the front door or in the office to hold your keys. Easy to find when you're rushing out the door!

For those that are unfamiliar with Etsy, it is a on-line marketplace for handmade items.  There were so many beach decor choices on Etsy and it was hard to choose so I know that this will be the first of many Etsy beach posts I will make.  I hope you enjoyed my choices.  Take a look on Etsy here for more beach listings.  Check out my Etsy shop for  seashell and sea glass embellished photo frames, silk and dried flower wreaths and wall hangings at Angels and Everlastings.

  11. One of the most common modern beach house designs is a house with extraordinary water view. This design is really perfect for modern homes in the beach because you can overlook the sea and the sea air can easily enters, giving you a fresh feeling everyday. Water views are usually glass sliding windows that surrounds the house.
