Here in the northeast, April showers have lingered a more than a bit late, but that hasn’t put a damper on getting set for summer at the beach.
I’ve been designing a lot of new coastal themed items this year, to add to my beach living collection.
This year it’s all about mermaids and other fantastic sea creatures!
The image for the Mermaid Song Beach Towel , above, is an eCollage of elements from a beautiful 1883 illustration by the great artist and illustrator, Walter Crane. And check out this matching outdoor pillow !
And I am loving this Octopus Pillow . Archaeologists found this gorgeous design on a floor mosaic at the site of ancient Pompeii.
For your deck doorway… a Mermaids Door Mat , featuring an eCollage featuring details from a Belle Epoque painting :
This Mermaids Art School Pencil Case has a variety of uses. It’s fully lined, and can also hold cosmetics or coupons. I use mine as a mini purse to throw in my beach bag.
And for your indoor coastal decor, add a Mermaid Strong Keepsake Box . Beautifully made of black lacquered wood, with a tile inset, this box is fully lined an a velvety soft grey. A keeper for the coffee table, or dresser top!
And of course some of my all time favorites….
And from my own original watercolors:
And I have to add my Princess Fish Beach Towel .
Stay tuned for more!
