Sometimes “coastal” style is just about that one special piece, not an entire collection. Can you imagine this simple, organic sea-shaped white coral displayed all by itself on a fabulous antique credenza? Or imagine it as part of a creative shore table scape, dressing up a rustic driftwood-like buffet, or possibly hiding in a nook on a towering bookcase. The possibilities are endless for elegant beach style, for bringing in memories of the of the sea, warm sand, and wild waves. There’s nothing quite like adding a touch of the natural sea and shore to complete a coastal home.

The best part? This piece is not real coral, but it is so finely crafted with tiny attention to detail, that it looks like an incredible beach find. Using faux instead of real coral allows the sea to thrive and maintain its natural state, for many fish, turtles, and other sea creatures turn to coral for necessary survival needs.

Here are a few more examples for pretty artificial coral!  Tried to find a few pieces for you in several colors, to complement any seaside room.

Remember, if you truly are an ocean lover, real coral is a big no-no.  It is possible to find unique, exquisite coral-like pieces for decorating your beach house. We need to respect our planet and leave the real coral where it belongs, on the reef.
