Beach Decor Ideas - Sand and Sea Shells in your Stairs

Stairway to Heaven

I went and toured some new model homes that were built overlooking the ocean with amazing views in San Clemente, California, and wanted to see what you thought about this design idea for some beach decor lifestyle living.
Custom Stairs with Rock Inlay
The main stairway leading up the second floor, and all the bedrooms, had been built with a nice rich hardwood floor topping for the treads, then has a cement themed veneer put over the risers. One side of the staircase was encased by the wall, so the hand rails or spindles were simply painted a cream color to match the walls in this particular project.
What if we added Sea Shells?

The uniqueness of this model home's staircase got me to thinking about what if we added some sea shells, and other beach themed items to the risers? Would you like to be reminded of your fabulous beach lifestyle while you climb your stairs to bed every night?
Sea Shell Stair Well
 I thought it would be fun to add some common sea shells you might find on the beach, like sand dollars, and star fish along side the rock formation they had. Use more of sand color cement, and you will have your own beach themed stair case. Let us know what you think, or if you see any stair cases like this!

Beach Bedding Surfboard Comforter by Designer Dean Miller

Reversible Surf Style for Your Bedroom

Only three things matter to surfers, Surf, Eat, and Sleep. This tried and trued mantra has kept surfers coming back to the beach day after day to reveal in tropical water, and chase waves around the world. Beach bedding designer Dean Miller understands this connection to the ocean, and the magnetic pull it has on surfers.

Beach Bedding by Designer Dean Miller

Dean Miller designed the perfect surf bedroom to bring the beach indoors. This surfboard themed reversible comforter is a testament to surfers worldwide who think about nothing else besides surfing, and when the next set of waves are coming. This reversible surf bedding set has a hand drawn tonal background filled with beach, and tropical motifs. The tonal accents have breaking waves, surfers riding these waves, Hawaiian icons such as antique tiki figures, palms trees, and ancient Polynesian hieroglyphics. On top of this one of a kind tonal background are multi colored surfboards of varying shapes and sizes, from long boards, to big wave guns, and graphic intense hot dogging short boards.

Beach Bedroom

This comforter set has a reversible front and back, that allows you to dramatically alter the look of your bedroom, from a deep sea blue, to a piping hot lava red colorway. Once you throw in a couple of coordinating decorative pillows from the accent beach collection Dean Miller has created, you will go to sleep after a long day of surfing, and believe you have woken up on the North Shore of Hawaii. This beach bedding is sure to please any beach lover, or surfer you know.
