It’s vintage style is perfect for this iron fish vintage finished mermaid art sculpture.  All iron fish coastal sculptures were made for beach house bedrooms just like this one.  All decor should match the natural surroundings of the water, sand, and sky.  That is a simple way to make an award winning coastal bedroom ready for the magazines.  Keep it simple.  Keep it fresh.

Beach House Coral Sconce’s-Perfect Coastal Decor

Beach House Coral Sconce’s-Perfect Coastal Decor

These feux coral sconces make for a unique coastal decor lighting option.  Hand crafted and costing only $365/pair(only ordered by phone-843-842-9448), these bright red coral sconces make for a great beach house accent.  Once they are lit at night, they become another piece of art all on their own so in a sense, it is a two for one offer.

All Iron Fish sculptures are perfectly suited for a back lit option as well.  When decorating your beach home, try to keep in mind how your wall art will accentuate your “coastal” rooms at night.  Most people visualize the coastal decor in the day time but those with an attention to detail will remember the night!!!  Of course, lighting has everything to do with accentuating your wall art so remember that when you have an electrician around.  Despite how amazing your art collection is, I assure you it looks pretty drab in the dark.

7ft Handcrafted Mermaid Art/Sculpture Fills A Very Big Wall

7ft Handcrafted Mermaid Art/Sculpture Fills A Very Big Wall

At this beautiful coastal home  that faces the Intracoastal Waterway and is only 1 nautical mile from Harbor Town of Hilton Head, Heidi and Pete Woods have used this large 7ft tall handcrafted mermaid art/sculpture to set off the perfect coastal decor theme for their beautiful beach house in Haig Point.  In fact, this large wall makes this mermaid sculpture look much smaller than it is.  However, it is no secret that vaulted ceilings can play tricks on your eyes. Ask any interior designer….they’ll tell you.

With all of the natural light in this room, a sunset view of this mermaid art/sculpture is even more stunning(photo requested:-))  Nevertheless, we have to settle for this morning photo which of course works just fine.  Many thanks to the Woods family for opening up their home to an informal photo shoot.  Job well done decorating your beach house with this handcrafted mermaid sculpture. She really sets the tone in this coastal room!

Fishermen Lights

coastal decor

Check out the new Fisherman Pendant designed by TAF for Swedish lighting company Zero. Inspired by the old fashioned glass maritime floats, each light is made of a polypropylene globe suspended in a hand-knitted net made in Hönö on the west coast of Sweden. I think these unique lights would add a nice touch to your nautical decor. And if you’re feeling crafty, I imagine you could whip up a DIY version using a globe light and some dyed netting.

Red Fish / Spot Tailed Bass Iron Fish Sculpture

Red Fish / Spot Tailed Bass Iron Fish Sculpture-Coastal Art


This Iron Fish Gallery permanent coastal decor piece is a well known fish to anglers from the Atlantic coast to the Gulf Coast.  These fish are absolutely beautiful and are known for their red tint which is why they have gained the recent nickname “red fish”.  Most old timers around the SC coast know them as spot tailed bass(notice the spot down by their tail) or red drum but the more popular term for them from an anglers perspective is “red fish“.  Either way, with the classic vintage finish found on all Iron Fish sculptures, this particular piece of coastal art works well for any interior who needs that orange/red pop off of the walls or for any angler who would like a reminder of his favorite catch.  These hand forged red fish sculptures are easy to hang and fun to look at.
