Or is there a motif (design or decorative element) or personal style that is uniquely your own that is represented in your home?
Here in New Orleans, for instance, the fleur de lis is an often-used motif in decorating, fashion, and jewelry.
For my beach house in Gulf Shores, I have chosen beautiful sea glass to be not only the name, but our motif. Throughout our cottage, I have tried to incorporate the colors and textures of sea glass to personalize the beach house.
I am so happy that our family members and friends like our home's name so much, that they automatically associate sea glass with us. We have been fortunate to receive very thoughtful housewarming gifts from friends to help us celebrate this new chapter in our lives, and naturally many of them involve sea glass or the name Sea Glass Cottage.
One of the first gifts we received for Sea Glass was this cute home plaque from our real estate agent. I have it in the entrance hall to welcome guests when they first enter.
A group of dear friends surprised me with these personalized items for the kitchen -- pretty kitchen towels and tumblers imprinted with Sea Glass Cottage.
Another friend gifted us with these beautiful personalized bath towels!
All of the homes in my beach community have names and often have a plaque outside to show their name. I worked with an artist in Alabama (who has an etsy shop) to design a metal plaque for Sea Glass Cottage that could withstand the harsh salt water and sun damage. She came up with this design to place near our address on the front porch.
And last, but not least, who knew that there was actually Sea Glass wine? I sure was surprised when I received several bottles of Sea Glass wine!
It's fun incorporating my house name and sea glass motif into my home decor.
Do you have an element or design motif in your home that is uniquely you?
