Adesso Spotlight Table Lamp from Lamps.com

The Spot Light Table Lamp is a great piece of lighting ingenuity, and a favorite at Lamps.com.  Adesso has given us something worth a second look with this modern lighting fixture that provides a nautical feel.  The tri-pod base provides flexibility of placement and the spotlight can shine brightly in any corner or room of your home. We’re currently are using ours in our art studio, but it works in pretty much any room of our beach cottage. Visit Lamps.com and check out all of their Nautical Light Fixture options.

Nautical Fixtures for a Stylish Beach Home


These lovely Nautical Fixtures for a Stylish Beach Home were shared with us directly from the manufacturers. As you’ll see, each light and bathroom fixture possesses a nautical-inspired theme.

When it comes to warm weather fun, there’s no better place to let your cares drift away than down by the sea.  The ocean breeze and salty air don’t just reinvigorate the mind and body – they can also provide some stylish inspiration.  As we push off the dock and sail away, here’s a look at our favorite nautical designs suitable for sailors or landlubbers alike.

Anchors Aweigh Lighting Options for a Stylish Beach Home

Troy Lighting’s Catch ‘N’ Release, Little Harbor and Merchant Street collections are all nautically-inspired creations perfect for a stylish beach home.

Catch ‘N’ Release ~ With rustic warmth and natural charm, this pendant light is certain to reel you in.  A cylindrical, natural linen shade silk-screened with a diverse sea of swimming fish is surrounded by a mesh cage made of hand-worked iron finished in Angler bronze, while a whimsical fishhook links the stem to chain suspension.  This fixture is available in a variety of sizes!

Little Harbor ~ On dark and stormy nights at sea, ships need a friendly light to guide the way. When a lighthouse won’t do, try the next best thing.  This light fixture draws inspiration from the past and the busy, seafaring communities of the East and West coasts. Made from solid brass and finished with forged black accents, the fixture creates a rich, nautical look from sea to shining sea.

Merchant Street ~ Inspired by the vintage treasure discovered while searching the back roads of America, the Merchant Street collection is reminiscent of early industrial shelving in a wharf-side warehouse.  The hand-worked wrought iron frame is finished in rusty iron and edged with horizontal salvaged wood slats.  A warm glow emanates from inside its mesh cylindrical core through optional flame tip early electric lamps.

Barcelona ~ Inspired by a fisherman’s net. Barcelona showcases a diverse and highly creative design sense reminiscent of the city that shares its name.  A melange of crystal and hand-formed Italian drops in a medley of subtle color are suspended by a unique jewelry chain.  The handcrafted iron pendants, sconces, islands and semi-flush light fixtures feature a highly distinguished silver and gold leaf finish.

Spirit ~ Contemporary, and with a clean classic design, the Spirit Faucet by THG, is a welcome addition to the modern bathroom. Evoking the luxurious lodgings of an ocean liner or yacht, the Spirit’s grace is marked by its polished chrome handles and makes a simplistic yet refined statement.  For Spirit by THG – www.thgusa.com

Palomba Freestanding Tub ~ This tub creates a dynamic, asymmetrical look that recalls a natural water basin carved out of the rocks over the millennia.  Its organic and asymmetrical shape channels the beauty of water’s evolving form as it continuously changes to fill the basin. These natural lines mold to the contours of the body and provide ergonomic support – perfect for soaking those tired sea legs.  For the Palomba tub by LAUFEN – www.us.laufen.com

5 Coastal Lamps to Light Up Your World!


Coastal Lamps are an easy way to light up your world!  I was thinking about  how great an investment lighting for your beach home really is.  Yes, some higher-end coastal table lamps can be pricey upfront, however when you think about how many years of durable use they provide, they really aren’t that expensive.  If the table lamp is beautiful then it’s almost like an investment in art too, especially those which are handcrafted with shells and such.

Think of it this way….If you pay $200 for a lamp and have it for 10 years then it’s only costing you $20 a year or $1.66 a month! You spend more than $1.66 a month on Starbucks or other items which don’t provide value, don’t you? Hmmmm….do I have you thinking now?

Here are five Coastal Lamps which will light up your world and are all a great investment for your home!  Don’t forget to leave a comment as to which is your favorite.


Currey & Company’s Lynnhaven Table Lamp is a fabulous accent for any home.  Natural oyster shells are used to create this organic lamp which is available from our friends at Ocean Offerings.   The lamp is accented with a natural burlap shade and is embellished with black wood accents.  What a showpiece this table lamp would be in YOUR coastal-inspired home design.

Crazy for Capiz Shell Lamps

Contemporary Dining Room by Minneapolis General Contractor REFINED LLC

A capiz shell lamp provides a favorite spot in your beach house with a soft, diffused light — perfect for the bedroom, den or library.  They used to cost thousands of dollars, but are now widely available at affordable prices.  Since capiz shells reflect light, some light fixtures don’t even have a light inside; they hang like chandeliers and get their glow from other light sources.  Here are some of our favorite designs, which one is your favorite?

Hello, everyone! I’m so happy to be visiting with you here at Beach House Decorating with a guest post from Arcadian Home blog.

Thanks for letting me stop by for a few minutes.

Coastal Blues

In this lofty beamed living space, coastal blues are used sparingly to create a beautiful end result. A few touches of turquoise are deftly integrated into a lovely neutral palette of white and soft sandy hues.

Coastal Blues

A sleek white kitchen serves as a blank canvas for splashes of watery blues, from pale to brilliant. A wonderful underwater blown out photograph fills one wall with color. Those contemporary pendant lights have me wanting to know more—what a gorgeous array of coastal blues.

From contemporary kitchen style, we turn to this vintage coastal cottage look. A blue gas range seems just perfect in this all white space. Two glimpses of pale blue can be seen on the counter to the right of the stove.

Denim blue and a sunny golden yellow infuse this coastal living room with color. It’s at once comfortable and stylish. I love the perfectly lined up yellow boxes on the shelves.

Subtle touches of sky blue blend beautifully with soft tans in this beach house family room. The patterned rug adds rhythm to the space; mimicking the movement of ocean waves. A blue Egg chair offers a cozy spot for reading. I’ve become a big fan of these wooden contemporary floor lamps—great color and shape.

This warm and inviting guest room is filled with iconic coastal cottage décor details. Maps of island regions of the world have been used to create beautiful and interesting walls. Blue and white stripes bring a nautical look to the bedding.

Crisp navy blue and white is mixed with lively textiles in a paler hue to bring an updated version of beach house style to this spacious master bedroom. Coastal wall art catches the eye above the tall navy headboard.

A wonderfully appealing blue gray is stunning in this beach house living room. The beautiful blend of blues, violets and grays in the fireplace stone is stunning.  Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
