Bringing the Seaside Inside

Stone with a heart shape in it on Killiney Bay

Since this time last year, I’ve been renting in the coastal Dublin suburb of Dun Laoghaire. I’m glad I’ve had the opportunity to live beside the sea at least once in my life because it’s so inspirational. I’ve often thought it would be nice to use the colour palette of the seaside for decorating a room – the pale blues and various shades of sand and stone are so calming.

I can’t decorate a rented apartment so I found another way to bring a little part of the seaside in to my home….Candle holder with sand and shells

Sand, seashells and a tealight inside a glass holder

Now I can bring a part of this beautiful place with me when I move house.
