Always Take Me To The Beach

Start with a color palette and a theme

Have you started your Christmas decorating? I confess.....I have not! I never begin the Christmas season until December! I know many people do, but I savor the Thanksgiving holiday and enjoy this family time until the very last day of November. However, it is nice to gather ideas on what theme is going to be displayed in your home for Christmas time! 

I know many of us are forever beach dreaming. Some of our family members simply adore anything coastal themed. So, let's gather some lovely inspiration on simple ways to incorporate beach related items into our decor! Now, this I simply love! Shades of turquoise under the tree! 

A warm, cozy  way to create the look and feel of the Atlantic ocean breezes

Festive Flourishes

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
A beautiful way to be crafty....

O Christmas Tree......O Christmas Tree...
I simply adore this entire look....
The Star Attraction

Splurge on ribbon every Christmas

Watery blues and sparkling gold.....they glisten with a casual vibe! 

Sweet Slumber

And to all a goodnight.....


  1. All so very pretty!! I think if I lived in Hawaii or Puerto Rico - this is exactly how I would decorate!!

    1. A tad different, right Linda! I think this would be just lovely for Flordia and also Maine! How fun!!! Enjoy your weekend love!

  2. Beautiful colors! I am a traditional Christmas gal at this point - reds, plaid, silver…

    Thank you for gathering all that loveliness to share with us.


    1. Hi Deanna! I also love a tradtional Christmas! But if you do live in a coastal area, it certainly would be festive to decorate a room reflective of your state! Many Texans decorate with Texas in mind! Cannot wait to see your holiday decor!

  3. Beautiful photos, Estelle. Have a wonderful week.

    1. Hi Katie! I'll just bet you may have some beautiful holiday decor reflective of New England! Hope you share your beautiful home all dressed up for Christmas! Hugs!!!
