Living in Central Florida, I have touches of coastal decor in my home year round. Last spring I added pastels to my living and dining rooms. Summer I went with hot tropical colors. For fall I am going rustic by adding texture with wood and burlap with lots of neutrals and tans. On www.beallsflorida.com, I saw a bunch of faux shell arrangements using succulents and on Pinterest, there are amazing shell and floral arrangements. I don’t want to spend $30 or more and was inspired to try making an arrangement with one of my real conch shells from Key West.
