Really cool interior coastal blog site!!!

Just read a cool blog from Sarah, editor of the blog named A Beach Cottage, coastal vintage lifestyle. The title of her blog that caught my eye is called :


Did you know that Spartina 449, the nationally celebrated women’s hand bag & coastal apparel brand, had their first model shoot for their first line of handbags at my gallery on Daufuskie Island(see photo below). Kay Stanley, owner of Spartina 449, has been a good friend, neighbor, and customer. To be quite honest, Kay is an inspiration to me because she has a track record of success but most importantly, she works with a smile and gets the job done. In a short amount of time, this savy businesswomen has built Spartina 449 into a nationally recognized brand. So in short, my welding mask is off to Kay for her vision and hard work. I am proud to have played a tiny part in the beginning of this play. Congrats and here’s to your future.

Three Coastal Decorating Tips for Chase Allen’s Handcrafted Sculptures

1. Group/school the coastal sculptures in odd numbers….never even!

2. Play with the spacing of the sculptures and adjust for the wall space that you are using. These sculptures can be spaced out to help fit the wall so use this to your advantage. Start the school in a tight pattern and space them outward to match space available.

3. Mix up the species. Note that the mermaid sculpture looks awesome with the fish art swimming in the same direction.
