Around the House Saturdays: Beach Decor Edition

It's August, which means the summer is drawing to a close. When I was growing up, my family and I would take at least one week and head to the beach for some good ol' sand and swimming. Unfortunately, this year the Hubby and I were unable to make it to the shore. But one of the ways I've found to cope with missing the ocean is to have beach/coastal items around the house.

Recently, I read a post from the fabulous Lisa Leonard of Lisa Leonard Designs where she was highlighting some of the beach accessories in her new home and I thought I would share them with you (with her permission, of course).

When it comes to beach decor, I think the more subtle and natural, the better.

Have a great weekend! And if you happen to live near the ocean, please dip your toes in the water for me.

Not near the ocean, but totally enjoyed Lake Michigan yesterday. I over heard someone comment, "Have you ever seen such a huge body of water?" Apparently they have never seen the ocean either.
