A Light Touch. Subtle, Beach decor style from Coastal Living Magazine

Finally, an afternoon to just relax with my October issue of Coastal Living. I was so thrilled to see designer Susan Ferrier featured in the "A Light Touch" design. As a fan of her interiors and sense of style, once again, she did not disappoint.  A modern, subtle, beach decor style is just what I love. I think she said it best "..the decor doesn't always have to be beachy with a capital B to instill that relaxed, calming vibe everyone wants...".  I want some of this design.  Let's see if I can recreate at least one of them.

I love the palm tree seed branchs and glass balls in this photo. So simple, yet so elegant. I think this would look great on a buffet table.


I didn't have any luck locating the branches, but I thought some Manzanita branches may work as a good substitute. I found a great selection at Nettleton Hollow (http://www.nettletonhollow.com/).  Here is a direct link to their Manzanita Branch selection: http://www.nettletonhollow.com/manzanita-nat-project.html?gclid=CN_fn6Cj06QCFTRa7Aodi1kqIg

I found the glass balls, which are actually glass floats at Seaside Inspired (http://www.seasideinspired.com/).  I figure since they were listed by Coastal Living as a "Fabulous Online-Only Store", I'd take a peek.  I struck beach decor heaven AND found these floats!  Here is a direct link to their Sea Fog Glass Floats: http://www.seasideinspired.com/3335_sea_fog_glass_float.htm.

The vase appears to have the texture of birch.  I found it at Viva Terra, but it's sold out. I thought I could get some birch bark and spray paint it a metallic silver to re-create the look.  Or, just buy something similar. I found one at Bloomingdales (http://www.bloomingdales.com/).  Here's a direct link (and its on sale):

Here's a room I could definitely lounge in and entertain in:


I think the wood stump tables, make this room.  I found a similar table at West Elm (http://www.westelm.com/).  Here is the direct link: http://www.westelm.com/products/natural-tree-stump-side-table-f655/?pkey=ccoffee-side-tables

Love the coral accent too.  I found a huge selection at Seaside Inspired (http://www.seasideinspired.com/).  Here is a direct link to all of their coral: http://www.seasideinspired.com/coral_decor.htm

The ottoman with the throw and a few books invite me to sit back, relax and browse through some books or magazines.

This kitchen is a dream.  I love the driftwood inspiration, texture and color variations.  This definitely gets added to the "wish book".


You can see and enjoy the entire article in the October, 2010 Coastal Living magazine.  Or, here is a direct link to the article:  http://www.coastalliving.com/homes/decorating/neutral-decorating-ideas-00414000068581/

I have a small coastal cottage decorated in coastal chic and shabby chic with a blend of antiques. I love your blog for inspiration as I like to change the decor around and add more finds from my seaside village stores. Coastal living is always on my coffee table.

Have you ever considered about including a little bit
more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all.
Nevertheless think of if you added some great photos or videos to give your
posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with
pics and clips, this site could certainly be one of the very best
in its field. Amazing blog!

Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble
with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no backup.
Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

I comment whenever I especially enjoy a article on a website or if
I have something to contribute to the discussion. Usually it's triggered by the sincerness displayed in the article I looked at. And after this post "A Light Touch. Subtle, Beach decor style from Coastal Living Magazine". I was actually excited enough to drop a thought ;) I actually do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind. Could it be just me or do some of these responses appear like coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online social sites, I would like to keep up with you. Would you make a list the complete urls of all your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
