Trend Watch: A Walk on the Beach

Yes, I know I did a post about rocks recently. But those were fancy rocks, magnificent minerals. These here are just plain old stones. There’s also fan coral, branch coral, birch logs, and basic branches. The images are all from homes here in Boston, curated from interviews I did for interior design stories. Thought you might derive some inspiration, especially since it’s finally nice enough to venture outdoors.






If you have any earthy arrangements in your home, I’d love to see them. Please send pics! And I’ll work on taking shots of the ones I have in Truro.
