Somewhere Beyond The Sea...

I've recently come across a beautiful website called Buy The Sea which sells "a seductive collection of gifts and home accessories that capture the essence of the sea". With our non-existent Summer this year, I've barely made it to the beach and browsing through all these things was like a breath of fresh air.

There are so many things to choose from, I've just selected a few. Everything on the website has a coastal or nautical theme. The seaside look is very popular for bathrooms but as you can see there are also items for the kitchen or anywhere else in your home for that matter. If you're lucky enough to have a Summer Home any of these accessories would look great in it. If you do want to achieve a nautical theme in your home you should go for anything with navy, red and white stripes, natural ropes, circular mirrors and clocks, anything with driftwood...

These storage boxes have a lift-up lid and cost £5.99 (€9. ish) each

I love these lighthouse salt and pepper shakers (I seem to have a thing for salt and pepper shakers but I can't justify buying any more - how many salt and pepper shakers does one home need?!) These cost £29.95 (€44.) for the pair.

The driftwood mirror costs £50. (€73. ish) I love how natural it looks, you can imagine it just floating up to the coast like this, glass and all!

The lobster bucket is £22. (€32. ish) If you don't have any lobsters to hand This would be great for storing sticks by the fire, or potatoes in your kitchen!

The bell costs £54. (approx €80.) A great way to call the kids for dinner!

And last but not least... you can even bring a little bit of the fun of the seaside home with you for a rainy day! This sandcastle kit costs £5.99.

As I said there are many more items on the site, so have a look!
