Decorating with Rocks

Rocks are beautiful, and they are the easiest thing to find. So here are a few lovely decorating ideas with rocks from the beach.

Even Martha Stewart is decorating with rocks! To her rocks are souvenirs from a beach walk, carefully chosen. Small rocks are placed in jars and displayed above the sink in her Maine Home. And there's room to grow for Martha's beach rock collection!

Decorating with rocks can be as straight forward as lining them up on a window sill. Seen at Real Simple.

Beach Pebbles in Bowl
Rocks softened and rounded by the sea. The colors of beach rocks vary by location. I really like the lighter colors. Hues of white, gray and blue look very elegant. Via Apartment Therapy.

zen beach rocks
As soon as you stack rocks, they become zen-like.

Beach Pebble Alphabet
Decorating with rocks can take the shape of the Alphabet! Spread the rocks out on a side table or glue them on a canvas.

Pebble Tealights
Give tealight candle holders a unique twist by adding beach rocks. Seen here. Small shallow tealight holders are placed at the bottom of sturdy glass tumblers, then small beach rocks are arranged around them.

Decorating with rocks for the table to make an inviting natural centerpiece.

That alphabit scheme just stopped me in my tracks!

I bring home rocks every morning I go for a sunrise walk...They amaze me...I am creating little walls with them.

Gosh. So beautiful. Somehow the random pattern sends us all into a Zen state:).

The alphabet rocks are going to make me look even closer when I at the beach next time. I wonder if I can do the same thing with bits of shells I find? Hmmm…something to think about for a new project.

The gray rocks in the pale aqua plate... so serene. And the "Q" rock... imagine the odds.

I love me a glass container full of stones and pebbles and shells. I collect this stuff and always thought it was a funny thing. So glad there are others who appreciate the same things.

I love rocks and pebbles shaped and molded by age and water! I never fail to pick them up and treasure them!

Cal said...

I love the way these are all displayed. Simple and effective. Mine are still in little piles on my windowsill (apart from the mobile I made!). And I love the alphabet too. Thanks for popping over to my blog.

I love beach rocks!! I have some in my dining room and think they are so beachy without being too shelly!!!!
I really love the alphabet beach rocks! I wonder how long it took them to find all of those beach rocks!

My house is full of stones like these that the children bring up the road from the sea. One day I'll buy them a bag of cement and they'll get to design and build their own folly in the front garden.
