Coral is clean bright that is moving from the beach house and into the home this winter. But if you are not careful, this popular look could bust your budget—Vivre’s coral lamp above right is $305. Fortunately, this inspired-by-nature look can be achieved easily and cheaply by pulling out your old collection of seashells and displaying them in a simple glass bowl.
Other suggestions? These sea urchin bowls (in the middle) Etsy sell for $20. Or, if that’s not your style, try Ikea’s Andrea Run rug for $299 (which is pretty good for a 7’ rug.)
But as you decorate, remember that the real coral in America’s oceans are dissapearing at an alarming rate.
