Sea fans - Hi Kate. I assume that is a framed sea fan hiding behind the lamp. Do you have a source for them? Thanks.

I bought the sea fan from a shell store in Southern California (Newport Beach). There are stores online that offer them.

Thanks for asking,

The Shabby Nest
Benjamin Moore's Dove White is a similar color. Typically the ideal finishes are eggshell or satin for walls, semi-gloss for trim and flat for the ceiling.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

These chairs are a little more demure, but strong enough to anchor their side of the room.
Ottomans. Once you introduce ottomans to your living room’s layout, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them. Ottomans are the perfect accessory to a seating arrangement: They take up little visual space when it’s just you and your family, yet they offer that extra seating when guests arrive for a party.
Becky Harris added this to Dive Into Palm Beach Style
Mixing florals, prints and animal prints is a classic Palm Beach move. A framed vintage bathing suit is the perfect adornment for the wall.
Similarly, using a framed vintage bathing suit adds a fun and unconventional beachy touch to this elegant yet relaxed seaside home. It's interesting to note that the other framed item on the wall is a large piece of coral; both are three-dimensional items, which ties them together.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to Spool Furniture Stacks Up Style
Here a pair of spool chairs adds a nice visual line of repetition. Repeated spool detail on chairs, repeated chairs ... the eye likes this formula. Notice the great contrast of the black and green palette too.
Rooms and Words added this to Ecofriendly Fabrics Make the Cut
Here, designer Kate Jackson got chairs and stools from Lee Industries and Hickory Chair, two companies known for their sustainable furniture. The two companies also invest in soy-based foam for the seats, sustainable wood and more.
Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Anchor a Room With a Great Pair of Chairs
Some people choose to put all of their furniture against the wall, thinking that it will make the room look bigger. A room often looks more inviting, though, when pieces like these spool chairs are placed at an angle with plenty of space around them.
Judith Taylor Designs added this to Here's How to Steer Clear of 10 Top Design Don'ts
1. Don't push the furniture against the wall. You will have a much more interesting space if you allow breathing room around your pieces of furniture, as we see here. Allow the furniture to float in the room, away from the walls. This will help create a conversation grouping. The optimal distance for conversational seating is 4 to 8 feet. This is the Goldilocks zone.
Sentimental items should make you feel connected to others and to your own experiences. By putting them in your home, you’re honoring that connection. And by changing the piece or making it into something new, like a piece of art, you’re adding a piece of yourself to the story — making it that much richer when it’s your turn to pass it on.More: What to Do With Old Family PhotosHow to Get With a New Minimalist Mentality
Fierro says the bathing suit in this living room by Kate Jackson Design is clearly from the 1960s. “In that era swimwear became more like underwear, with corset boning to slim and shape and bra tops that gave a bombshell bust,” she says. It’s that structure that can make the suits from this time hard to frame; Fierro recommends removing the padding to make them thinner and easier to display.

Every home design project is beset with its own design challenges, some of which need a trained professional to help solve. But there are things that I see homeowners do time and time again that land them in a situation where their furnishings and interior scheme just aren't working, and they're not sure why. The truth is, if they just avoided a few common mistakes, their space would instantly feel fresh and professionally styled. Here are the top design don'ts and some successful designs that show what to do instead. 1. Don't push the furniture against the wall. You will have a much more interesting space if you allow breathing room around your pieces of furniture, as we see here. Allow the furniture to float in the room, away from the walls. This will help create a conversation grouping. The optimal distance for conversational seating is 4 to 8 feet. This is the Goldilocks zone.

. Don't push the furniture against the wall. You will have a much more interesting space if you allow breathing room around your pieces of furniture, as we see here. Allow the furniture to float in the room, away from the walls. This will help create a conversation grouping. The optimal distance for conversational seating is 4 to 8 feet.
