Lantern Lighting

We all love spending time by the seashore, taking a beach vacation, or the feeling of a fresh ocean breeze. So if you can only enjoy the beach in the summer, decorating an area of your home with a nautical or beach theme is a nice alternative to enjoy that feeling year round.

Consider lighting options to help achieve your theme, such as our Seeded Glass Wall Lantern shown here to the right. In your choice of finish, the painted steel encompasses a seeded glass shade and is supported by a round wall plate with curved hook to hang. This wall lantern works well both on indoor walls and outdoor, mounted on the exterior of your home.

Life Is Good Beach Clock Beach Time

Here at SYW, there are lots of ways to pay tribute to the beach with options for your walls too. Next, we present our Life Is Good Beach Clock, which would look nice displayed in a sun room or other room with an open floor plan. Offering a cottage appeal, it’s also proudly made in the USA.

As seen here to the left, the clock features a painted blue and white background that resembles wood paneling. It’s also slightly distressed to give a weathered look. “Life is good at the beach” is a sentiment all fans of the ocean can relate to.


Seashore Floors

Not to be forgotten amongst your nautical or beach themed room, is your floor space. Whether you’re decorating a casual living space indoors or a covered porch outside, this next item is a must-have.

Our Indoor/Outdoor Seashore Rug pictured to the right, is available in the bright red as shown, or blue. On top of either bold hue, we find a design of various creatures from the sea. A seashell, starfish, crab and seahorse all have their place. But of course note to be missed, is a large lobster in the rug’s center.
