{31 Days of Coastal Style} A Whale of a Tale!

You've seen tons of starfish and plenty of coral, but the really "big" creature in coastal decorating right now? The WHALE! (pun intended)

From At West End to Pottery Barn, and from Emily Henderson to Domino Mag, the mighty whale is going mainstream! Come and "sea"... (yes, shameless I tell you)

Of course, if you don't feel like shelling out big bucks for your own beluga, there's always the DIY option!

P.S. Please tell me I'm not the only one that thought of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" when I read the title of this post? Haha...
