Last week I showed you some of my favorite projects for displaying vacation mementos and mentioned that I’d be sharing snapshots of some of the travel keepsakes we currently have throughout our home. I’m so glad the weather finally turned around as I was starting to worry whether I’d finally get enough light to take photos. Thankfully the sun came out yesterday!
When displaying vacation keepsakes, I always think about how they can become integrated within our everyday decor. I like it best when they don’t scream souvenir like “look at those sombreros and maracas!” Instead, I like a subtle mix.
We’ve been on several beach vacations and have collected many shells and pieces of coral along the way. We have some of these in a glass cylinder in the family room. I also mixed in some faux shells from Pottery Barn to add a little color. Some of the larger pieces were placed on the bookshelf.
