I love all the pops of tropical color used in this living room! “Bright yellow was the unifier color in this room and helps bring out a modern, midcentury retro vibe.”

How to turn a room into a coastal gem!

sara richardson coastal home
To get this fresh and clean coastal look, you can try “ocean inspired color palettes, touches of subtle sparkle from glass and mirrors, and “found”, natural elements from the sea or coast as decor accessories.” Don’t forget the wall color and seashells too!

Sand Cloud Beach Towels

You’ll never have to use sand mounds, backpacks or clothes as a pillow on the beach again!!

Sand Cloud Towels are designed for ultimate comfort and relaxation. The specialized beach towel includes a removable, cylinder pillow that provides excellent head and neck support that we all search for while laying out. To further enhance the experience we had to insist on upgrading the towel itself. Sand Cloud towels are handwoven from Turkish cotton, eco- friendly, and built to last!

Sand Cloud Beach Towel with Pillow

Turkish cotton is a thin, flat-woven cotton from Turkey. Turkish cotton is known for its durability as well as its absorbency. Aside from its durability, the material is light, easy to pack, and quick drying, becoming softer with each wash. The best part is that the fabric is lightweight and it repels sand — perfect for your days on the beach!

Available in four ‘beachy’ colors including Ocean Blue, Sunset Orange, Lavender, and our favorite Island Green.
