Seashells in glass jars are perfect beach home decor

Seashells are one of coastal enthusiasts favorite things to decorate with.  There are literally a million ways to display them but we especially love filling glass containers with them.  As you can see, the shells blend well with smooth stones, candles and even flowers! What is your favorite way to display your seashell collection?

Seashell and Nautilus Shell Box  Gone Coastal Designs

Every inch of this fabulous seashell box is beautifully covered with shells. This box is a one of a kind and loaded with details. The center piece of the top is an amazing work of art via Mother Nature! The crown of the jewel box is a half cut nautilus shell sitting on top of a spiral of small green abalone shells. Centered around them are small white cay cays. The top right corner is a small spiral of green abalone with a brown and white sundial on top. Then all is edged with light brown olive shells. Around the front and sides of the lid are brown and white sea urchin spines, white arks and tiny white litorinas with even more olive shells.

We want this Beach House Sink!


Okay, practicality aside, we totally want this beach house sink! A giant clam shell sink gives the powder room a whimsical, dreamy look. This amazing bath is in a Southampton, NY beach house which is awash in colors that say sea, sky, and nature.  The Mother of Pearl tiles and seashell mirror are pretty amazing too, don’t you agree?
