Coastal Mantel 2015

I hope everyone had a great holiday! I was excited to get things back to normal, rearrange and focus on designing my home. I 'm going to be making a few changes and thought I would start with my mantel. I'm giving my home a fresh Coastal feel, with clean lines and fresh coastal colors.

I hope you can join me while I make these changes as I will be sharing design tips on  how to get designer looks without breaking the bank!

I recently visited  the Outer Banks and found this lovely Coastal store in Nags Head called, The Cottage Shop, where I found these lovely frames with the seahorse and sea turtle prints by Avery Tillmon. They make a great addition to my Coastal design.

Using throws to decorate always adds interest and color. Place them around your living room so you can grab them and cozy up to watch a good movie! 

  Using decorative candles are a great way to add interest and color to your mantel. I won't be burning this one because it's so pretty! It smells good too! I bought these cute lighted houses in Ikea at Christmas time, but they can be used throughout the year.

 I'm really looking forward to sharing the rest of my home with you as I continue to make changes.

Have a great week!


  1. A friend recently visited The Cottage Shop too! It sounds like a great place, and you definitely scored! Very pretty vignettes!

    1. Thanks Doreen! It's a lovely store! I wish it was closer, but it's always nice to take a trip! I bought some coastal Christmas decorations too for 75% off!
