Cheers to the holiday weekend friends! We're in full swing here with today being the opening day for crabbing (#heyhey), and our new outdoor sectional is scheduled to arrive tomorrow!! Yippee! (still time to get 15% off with code 4thofJuly!)
I'm not sure if I'll set it up for the 4th of July simply because it get absolutely crazy around the neighborhood with an influx or people, kids, and ketchup on this day. I definitely want to make sure I have adequate time to spray NeverWet outdoor fabric spray of something something similar to the cushions. Best stuff ever I tell ya. ;-) #nomessnostress
So onto today's topic - CORAL for decoration!
As I've grown older, I abandoned the thought of "collecting things". We purge frequently and try to live light. I give away a lot of the items I buy for style blogging, but coral you guys. I've developed a bit of a love for these beautiful coastal treasures.
Whether you prefer natural coral or don't mind a resin/faux version, here are a few place to find coral to add to your own home decor.
Depending on where you live, you can find the most beautiful natural coral at local boutiques, antique shops, etc. I live in the Seattle area and have hopped the local islands on "treasure hunts" and "day trips" only to find a beautiful piece or two to add to my growing collection.
Because etsy is made up of so many small business owners, it's a great resource for finding natural coral for your home. Below are just a few pieces I found while browsing around!
One Kings Lane has always been one of those design resources that screams "authentic, beautiful, timeless, and quality". I love that they have a vintage section to their site and one of a kind items including natural coral. Here is just a sampling of coral items I found on One Kings Lane.
A final place I'd recommend if you're simply going for "the look" is to check out a variety of options from online retailers. I know I personally love the convenience of finding what I'm looking for and having it shipped to my front doorstep, often times for free. It's like Christmas in July! Lo Here are a few options to consider for adding coral to your home.
I LOVED finding these coral and acrylic napkin rings!!!!
HORCHOW: 30% off bedding, bath, lighting, and wall decor, 20% off everything else. Major savings for high end items. Their lighting is my FAVE!!!
Happy 4th of July to my readers from the US! Have a safe and fun time celebrating this weekend!!
