Coastal Living Giveaway

I’ve always loved decorating with one of my favorite nature’s elements – the ocean and everything involving coastal living. I still have a pair of vintage rowing oars in my dining room corner, and in one of our houses I even used oars as curtain rods. There isn’t an easier way to get some summer in your home than adding seashells in a vase or using a real conch as a center piece in your dining table or in your bookshelf.

I still wonder why the house where I had Ralph Lauren’s wallpaper with sailboat blueprints took almost a year to sell. I don’t understand why everyone just wouldn’t love some seaside living in their living room…

If wallpaper with sailboat blue prints is too much for you, there are easy ways to get the coastal look in your home. Coastal Living has always been one of my favorite magazines for seaside inspiration, and for dreaming of ocean side living.

    My problem is decorating on a tight budget. I would like ideas on how to do this.

    What a lovely &useful concept for a contest! I subscribed to your new
    blog and wish you great success & happiness in your efforts.

    My question? What’s the best way to reduce clutter?

    Sorry, I don’t belong to Twitter. Sounds like a good idea, though.

    Thanks for the contest.

    My design question: How do you go from a child’s bedroom to a teen’s bedroom (boys particularly) in a seamless easy way (and being frugal)?
