I feel like I've always been a water baby and tend to gravitate towards home decor that reminds me of the ocean or beach (check out these insane, water-inspired plates I just ordered). Perhaps it's because I'm a Navy brat and grew up living in coastal towns where the beach was always a source of happy memories ♥
I'm in the process of redecorating my house and have been on the hunt for some great coral pieces to add depth and texture to the rooms. I happened to uncover a few pieces of natural coral at an antique market in Santa Monica...but decided to pass because the prices were exorbitant in relation to the beaten up and unappealing presentation. Randomly, I found myself flipping through the new Pottery Barn catalogue the other day and to my surprise came across these gems. The Pottery Barn versions are well-priced and look just as great, if not better, than any of the natural coral I've seen.
