The Life Aquatic

While we sit nipping at the weekend’s heels, it’s fun to day-dream about the sand and sea.

These inspiration shots, brought to you by House Beautiful Magazine, make us want to dig our big toe in the sand, grab a mai-tai and and turn up the Jimmy Buffet.

The Well Appointed House’s very own – Melissa Hawks – is with her family in Bermuda and I asked her to send along a pic of her work perch there overlooking the water in Tucker’s Town and this is what she sent:

Now you can see why the life aquatic is on our minds here, and what a perfect spot to upload some fabulous new home decor fit for any Bermudian!  Melissa tells me that she is working on a fabulous post on Bermuda homes and architecture.  Stay tuned!

When it comes to seaside decor The Well Appointed House has you covered from the bed you sleep on to the pictures on the wall.  Our beach house decor section as well as our coral reef and nautical yachts sections have been getting a lot of love the past few weeks and we are particularly keen on the products below.  Don’t forget that The Well Appointed House doesn’t ship internationally directly, but we do work with myus.com and have many overseas island clients and will ship through this carrier!  If you are decorating an island home, we are the place to shop!



The coral accents bring an elegant yet relaxed feel to your space, while other pieces like the shell chest add an artistic, unique and more formal vibe. One of our favorite pieces is the handmade jelly-fish chandelier, perfect to hang in a kitchen, kid’s room or even bathroom. We chose the numbered sea-life pillows just to prove that although oceanography class was painfully boredom, the sea is still a beautiful thing!
