Shell Chic




Sometimes book titles are misleading but I will say Shell Chic: The Ultimate Guide to Decorating Your Home With Seashells is extremely comprehensive. If you are contemplating making a shell piece of your own, such as the mirror above from Downtown, the book includes instructions for 35 shell work projects ranging from a child's claw foot bath tub and an opulent chandelier to simpler kids' activities. But if you are not into crafting, the book is overflowing with sumptuous pictures, resources for collectors, and shell art history. One residence featured is the glamorous shell-encrusted apartment of former Elle Decor editor (and current Domino mag contributor) Marian McEvoy.

I love shell decor! I am working on a post about the ones I have collected from my trips and how I display them :-)

That mirror is great!
