The Perfect Shell Box


One of the “bad” things about liking businesses on facebook is that an occasional post or picture may send one into a buying frenzy. Case in point!

A few weeks ago I fell in love lust with the shell box from Seaside Interiors. I have never been to this business in Tampa, FL, but I certainly will visit during the summer when J & I return to Bradenton.


I messaged the shop through facebook inquiring specifics of the shell box that I just had to possess. I knew that the Spring green box would be a perfect accessory for the den. I love to decorate with green accents in the den because it brings the courtyard greenery inside.

The owner and her sister (Kimberly & Alicia) could not have been more accommodating to my numerous questions. I was impressed.

The box arrived on time, and the box was perfectly packaged. The owner even gave hand written instructions on the best way to unpack the box (She even left the same message on the answering machine.). Wow! That is certainly great customer service.

I received it and love it. It now sits on the sofa end table in the den and blends perfectly with my Southern Coastal style. Here it is:

Thank you Kimberly & Alicia for making my experience a positive one.


The shell box is made by artist Heather Kendall of Heather Kendall Designs.

Using shells sourced throughout the world, Heather and her team create custom designs including; shell chandeliers, shell mirrors, decorative items, and interior shell work. Heather Kendall has been designing with seashells for over ten years.

Take a look at some of Heather Kendall’s designs:

  1. Nice box, Ron. It is the perfect accent piece for the den! Maybe, your "not too subtle" hint about the coral sconces will be picked up by a family member for a Christmas or birthday present in the near future! ;) Have a great day! xoxo

  2. It's beautiful Ron, I love the color!
    The shell chandelier is stunning!

  3. That is an amazing piece, Ron. I just love it. What a perfect Spring color to bring in- xo Diana

  4. You have such exquisite taste, my friend! I can see how you fell head over heels for this!
    Come visit me and tell me what I am doing wrong with my secretary? Please?



  5. How beautiful! I can see why you fell in love with it. It's perfect in your home! It matches the green coral pillow on your sofa too. You are lucky to have received such great customer service from them too. It seems, that is a rare thing these days. Just shows you ordered it from a top notch company that cares about it's business and customers. I wish more people were like that.

  6. Gorg!! I really really want a pair of those sconces. We should give each other that for christmas. lol

  7. You and I agree on those coral sconces. How fabulous and original. I have a thing for shells anyway.

  8. What Beautiful Shell pieces Ron. I can see why you had to have the box!!!
    Whenever I go to the Beach, I take bags and collect Shells so that I can make Beautiful things for my Home, and also as Gifts!!!

  9. Divine! I love the light fixtures with sea shells ~ so unique!
    The green box adds a nice pop of color and I love your green pillow, too.
    I'm visiting you today from Feathered Nest Friday. I hope you get a chance to stop by my blog and leave a comment and Link Up, too!
