Frugal Decorating Tip #2: Bring Nature Indoors

“Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.” 

- Frank Lloyd Wright

Shells on display, sand from a nearby coast, starfish or even sand dollars fashioned into wall hooks – the beach is a great source of inspiration when it comes to decorating your home.  Place items inside glass jars and they become instant focal points.

Here are some of my favorite examples:
