My friend, Mariterese uses a lot of shells in her Florida home's décor.
Sea shells and roses in Jan Barboglio containers create a magical table.
The old china pattern called Tobacco Road is placed on hot pink chargers creating a bright summer riot of color to whet the appetite.
Notice the rose petals scattered on top of the shells in the candlelabra.
On the sideboard, a giant clam shell is filled with orchids, ferns, and moss.
A gilded hall table is the perfect contrast to the old wooden walls. It is embellished with crystal candlelabra, Aiden Gray candlesticks and a silver tray filled with shells, coral and faux coral that is
studded with miniature rhinestones.
A interesting mix of texture and shades of gray and white.
An antique gilded cabinet in a guest room is filled with large specimen shells and is so pretty.
In the kitchen, a wall grouping of vintage sea life plates hang on the ship lap walls.
And while these are not shell displays, the color is so beautiful that I want to share them.
Preserved roses in a mercury glass vase set the tone for the shot of color on the large kitchen island.
Fresh fruits and vegetables are stored in oversized white Jan Barboglio platters,
ready to be plucked and used in daily cooking.
A pretty tower of implements for sweet tea stand ready for use!
Sweet or unsweet please?
Love the pattern on these sweet little bouillon bowls.
It is the gathering and placing of these beautiful objects that gives us "hunters and gatherers" so much pleasure in our homes. Here's to the HUNT!
May we all continue to find and gather treasures through out our life!
