Preserve your beach-walk finds by creating a perfect little tableau… here an old wooden table, a blue striped tea towel, glass jars and a painted wooden box show off a casual but clever arrangement of pebbles, shells and succulents.
Great wall of China
No space inside to display your beautiful treasures? Take them outside! Transform a balcony or garden wall with colour-coordinated plates or mosaic.
It’s not what you have, it’s how you use it... Play with succulents – like sedum and aloes – pincushions, bankrupt bush and pumpkin shells in crates and drawers. Make the display all the more effective in a soft seaside colour palette.
Playfully mark out a hydration station by grouping a selection of enamel cups close to your water cooler or water jug to keep the family refreshed on scorching-hot days.
On a pedestal
Bring together items in shades of the sea and summer skies, and display them on rustic wooden crates. A stack of plates, a milk jug, polystyrene balls covered with glue and rolled in shells and sand, and a king protea plant all create a serene scene.
