Beach House Decor Featuring Lobster Sculptures

Beach House Decorating with Lobster Sculptures


Greetings! Today we are going to show you a few decorating ideas featuring lobster sculptures.  Every lobster decoration photographed here was handcrafted out of steel on Daufuskie Island, South Carolina by coastal artist Chase Allen.  You can find out more about Chase and his work by clicking here.


Lobster Art


When you look closely at this sculpture, you can see the painstaking attention to detail made by Chase.  Notice the rustic finish and intricate cuts in the metal canvas that his work is now famous for.


In our blog the other day, which you can see by clicking here, we showcased 3 coastal decorating ideas for stingray sculptures featuring a Victorian coastal cottage from Martha’s Vineyard, that was photographed by our friends at Coastal Living.  Today I am going to show you a few more pictures of that beautiful beach house, and also recommend a few spots where I think a lobster sculpture would look great!




Beach House Decorating


This room might not be the biggest in the world, but look at how they’ve maximized the space.  The two boys’ bunk beds are full of storage space underneath, saving a ton of room and hiding all of their mess I’m sure.  I think a lobster sculpture would be perfect right above their beds, showcased against the solid white wall.  It would match the red coastal accents in the room, and help the boys wake up every morning thinking about all the wonders of the ocean.  The beds and quilts are from Pottery Barn.




Beach House Decor - Coastal Living


This coastal decor picture was featured in our stingray blog the other day, but I can’t help thinking a lobster sculpture would look great where the whale decoration now sits.  Highlighting the red accents in the other room, I think a lobster decoration would be truly eye-catching.




The lobster art photographed below is not from the same house, but I wanted to show you how impressive these sculptures look against a white wall.  This nautical sculpture looks great over the sink in this beautiful coastal kitchen.

In the picture below, you can see how the lobster art pops off the white wall at the end of this hallway.  Special thanks to Iron Fish Collector Jeff Cross for allowing us to photograph his beautiful beach house on Daufuskie Island.

Bold Beach House Decor

Monday, November 14th, 2011

bold living room

With it’s vibrant color scheme and bold furnishings and accessories, this South Carolina vacation home has style to spare. The pops of red even continue out onto the patio! Now I personally enjoy surfboards used in decor, however, I think beach house wall art from the Iron Fish would work better in this particular space. A large lobster sculpture or “cooked” crab art would fit nicely with the unique personality of the room. What do you think?

1.  Paint walls, ceilings, trim, and doors the same shade of white to create a uniform backdrop. Surfaces painted one color blend seamlessly, allowing natural wood floors or furnishings to steal the show.

2.  Give monochromatic rooms interest and depth with texture. Go for the look of an old beach shack by coating wooden walls in white. Once dry, sand planks to reveal glimpses of the wood beneath.

3.  This simple, sun-bleached palette produces a clean, airy atmosphere, allowing dramatic views or artwork to take center stage.

4.  Don’t overlook what lies below. White floors do show scratches and dirt, but their brilliant sheen is unmatched. Porch and floor enamel can be tinted and will protect against heavy foot traffic.

5.  Build around one soothing white, then add colorful accents. Choose paints with tints of blue, gray, or pink to prevent rooms from looking washed out.

6.  Pair soft upholstery and white walls with dark wood floors for richness and warmth. You can achieve the same effect on a smaller scale with wood tables or even baskets.

7.  Install white beaded board and retro appliances to create classic cottage style in the kitchen. Oil-rubbed hardware provides dramatic contrast.–note lobster decor by sink

8.  Consider white walls your easel. Art assumes greater prominence when placed in a white interior. Gallery owners have long displayed artwork against white walls for maximum effect.

9.  A simple arrangement of greenery becomes sculptural when set against bright white interiors. Remember, less is more: A few carefully chosen accessories with large proportions will make an instant impression.
