Growing up in a seaside town in New Jersey (where I am lucky enough to hear the ocean from my bedroom window), I have always had a soft spot for coastal-inspired decorating. I find the balance of whimsy beach elements, like shells and large pieces of coral, with more structured, modern pieces to be very aesthetically pleasing. I came across Completely Coastal one day while browsing blogs, and have been hooked ever since.
This blog provides a great array of inspirational homes, decorating tips, and craft ideas to bring elements of the beach and sea into your home. It also provides a great selection of online shops that sell coastal inspired items.
Completely Coastal is offering a great giveaway this week, to win an adorable rug from Outer Banks Trading Group, a site that has so many awesome things to choose from.
