Beach House Art by Rachel White

Decorating your beach house is one of the blessings of a second home if you are lucky enough to own one. You get to spend time sourcing the most suitable artwork that wouldn't necessarily fit the decor in your primary residence. Not only are you looking for artwork that pleases you but you should also be thinking about your guests and the impact it might have on them. I know one of my favourite pieces of Beach House decor is a tiny lighthouse I see every year when we stay in a railway carriage in Selsey Bill. I hope you have your own favourite from one of your holidays. 

As Designed in Dorset grows and more Dorset based artists join our marketplace, the number of products is expanding and recently we have been lucky enough to be found by Rachel White. The Weymouth based artist famous for her work featuring recycled fishing nets, driftwood and other leftover material from a world gone mad. She collects the materials for her work whilst beachcombing along our very own Jurassic Coast, which we all know is one of the finest stretches of coastline anywhere in the world. It is such a shame we feel the need to destroy our planet in this fashion, but if Rachel has her way everything will be reused and turned into beuatiful pieces of art for us to enjoy. 

Rachel's pieces make fantastic inclusions to any beach house or Ocean Property and include the likes of this Lulworth Cove Mirror created from lost or discarded fishing nets. Any purchase of this item includes a donation to the Marine Conservation Society.

Lulworth Cove Mirror

"Fishing net salvage, landing nets and fishing ropes (‘ghost nets’ which continue to ‘fish’ long after they become lost or discarded) have been recycled to create this handmade fibre art mirror.  A donation of 10% from the sale of this piece will be made to the Marine Conservation Society."

 Three Driftwood Sailboats

These stunning driftwood sailboats would make the perfect addition to your beachfront property, bringing any shelf or window sill to life. So if you are looking for new artwork to furnish your beachfront home, holiday home or ocean property, then have a look around the marketplace to see what you can find that might suit your decorating needs.
