During these muggy summer months, I love to spend as much time at the beach as possible. The ocean is filled with so many mysterious and wonderful creatures, and they have been a source of design inspiration for thousands of years. Take a look at this round-up of home decor items inspired by our aquatic neighbors:
1. Jonathan Adler - Seahorse Table Lamp
This whimsical seahorse lamp from Jonathan Adler is fun, fresh, and contemporary. The crisp, clean, all-white look is super classic and will work with many design styles.
2. Amazon.com - Tentacle Wall Decal
These vinyl wall decals featuring dramatically dangling octopus tentacles will make bath time an epic adventure - because there's nothing more exciting than the threat of being swallowed by a giant sea monster while bathing!
3. Walnut Wallpaper - Little Whales (Grey on Pale Yellow)
This charming wallpaper pattern from Walnut Wallpaper has a mid-century modern feel to it. Available in 3 different colorways, this would be perfect for a nursery or bathroom.
4. Urban Outfitters - 4040 Locust Whale Tail Hook
This chic metal wall hook, in the shape of a whale's tail, is great for hanging anything from coats to purses and jewelry.
5. Serena and Lily - Lobster Sling Chair
Lounge in style with this preppy, all-American beach chair covered in a cheeky red and blue lobster print.
6. Pottery Barn - Blue Starfish Embroidery Pillow
This embroidered blue and white starfish pillow is relaxed, textured, and timeless. Perfect for your shabby chic beach house.
