Seeing Seashells

As refreshing as a sea breeze and as carefree as summer days are our Seashell Lace Curtains. Tiny lace sand dollars create rod pockets and a collection of seashells and sea life complete the look. Easy-care fabric makes them a simple solution for your coastal home.

To complement the starfish on these curtains, decorate with shells picked up from the beach or use our Sea Angel Ornament on a door, wall or in a bookshelf to add a little extra seaside charm. For a bigger beach statement, our Shoreline Wreath features a variety of shells and starfish among green seagrass to welcome guests or charm them in your beachside cottage.

Indoor Views

Decorating with beach inspired home accents is especially charming when you can't make it out to the beach yourself. Besides adding decor that reminds you of summertime and the beach, displaying wall art depicting ocean views, sunny days and coastal activities takes you right there to the dock, to the sandy beach or to a rustic rocking chair overlooking the sea. Create a gallery wall full of coastal imagery or showcase your favorite part of the beach.

Artists Loren Blackburn, Bonnie White, Zhen Huan Lu and Christopher John are just a handful of creators of beautiful beach scenes.

Seagrass Seating

Woven seagrass, wicker and rattan are perfect materials for furniture inside beach inspired rooms. Our Ladderback Seating and Seagrass Seating Collections offer rustic appeal that is perfect for oceanside cottages and seaside getaways.

Also perfect for beach living is a collection named after the beautiful coastal destination, Cape Cod. All three seating options provide the charm and convenience you're looking for in creating your oceanic oasis.  


Portland Head Light Rug

Destination: Maine

Of course, some of our favorite beach decor and coastal inspiration comes from our wonderful state of Maine. Summers spent here are lovely, and most of the time it has a lot to do with the beach. Artist Pat DeSantis creates some of the most charming prints depicting Maine coastal locations, including Ogunquit - which USA Today named America's Best Coastal Small Town; and Wells Beach, an infamously beautiful summertime location; among many others.

Finally, complete your coastal, beach inspired home with scenery from America's most photographed lighthouse: Portland Head Light. As a rug or a hooked wool pillow, you can make this Maine treasure a charming home accent among your beach prints and seashell decor.
