So, I’m just going to come right out and say it… Coastal Decor is not really my thing. I can appreciate it with the best of them, and love the vibe it exudes, but it just isn’t my particular jam, if you know what I mean. Not that I could define precisely what my jam is, but I can assure you it isn’t coastal by nature.
Now, that being said, I love a good beach print, as you can see here and here, and I am totally crushing on some of the tropical inspired trinkets floating around in retail land right now. I mean… that flamingo print, I die! and want so much… Those light fixtures that vaguely resemble sea creatures, yes please… and that tropical plant life inspired pillow, need.. it… right …now! How can you not love those little brassy sea urchins? I mean, they are just so cute and spiky, and a bit lethal seeming (probably not baby proof, but what can I say, I heart them). The vases that look like they are covered with sand dollars are borderline creepy, but I am not prejudice against creepy and often welcome a bit of it into my spaces. Ya, these pieces are tropical with a chic sensibility, perfect for even those of you who, like me, don’t consider yourselves coastal decor lovers… They’re just so beachy keen (you see what I did there… I blame the chocolate bar I just ate and the coffee I had this morning… out of control).
What do you think? Are you diggin these tropical vibrations? Or am I standing outside the line here?
