A beach retreat

I’m back in Denver but missing the ocean. An often unknown fact is that New Hampshire has about 18 miles of coast! I grew up about 10 minutes away from the coast and there is nothing more peaceful and calming than watching the shore go in and out. 

Looking to bring that beach/ocean theme into the house but don’t want to use the ever popular seaside decor collections of sand dollars, sea shells and sand? 
There are so many other creative alternatives to bring the beach into your home. 
How about beach themed artwork? With a very neutral room, the eye is immediately drawn to the beach artwork. 
Hanging an anchor on the wall. 
Use rope for common everyday tools around the home. 
Like a toilet paper holder. 
Better yet, what about using robe for the stair rails? 
When creating a beach retreat, I like to bring in elements of a beach or lake that make you indirectly think of water. What else would you bring into your dream beach house?

Animals on the wall

Although not a huge animal lover, I absolutely love anything related to animals around the house. Figurines, bookends, artwork that feature animals are all up my alley. I stumbled on this store last week which sells prints of animals. It is such a cute little store. 
The prints are relatively simple in nature, typically just a profile of the animal imposed on a white background but command your eye to look at it. Perfect for a nursery, a country or mountain home, an animal lover or for anyone looking to bring a unique piece of art into their home.

Sitting around the table

Continuing with the dining room theme this week, I thought I would showcase a really cool idea I recently saw. 

 If your table is configured where bench with the table, use a headboard behind the bench. This is a great way to no one sits with there back against the hard wall. Also a plus, a headboard can easily be DIY’ed.

Family + Home

This week is all about family and the concept of home. For the first time since April 15 I am going back to New Hampshire to see family and friends! I am beyond excited! As I mentioned here, the dining room table encompasses the concept of family and togetherness.
I love mixing old and new in a dining room because isn’t that what family is all about?

Color me… Yellow

The color yellow is known to elicit a sense of happiness and joy. It also stimulates mental activity so it’s a SMART color!  Yellow is an attention grabber so a little yellow goes a long way in a home.

Statement Piece

I am such a sucker for animal figurines and gold and bookends. So of course this was love at first sight. These are a great item to jazz up an office or any bookshelf.
