BeachDecor is proud to introduce beautiful wooden placemats and serving trays … using specially selected paintings by world renowned artist, Guy Harvey.
Guy Harvey is a unique blend of artist, scientist, diver, angler, conservationist and explorer. Growing up in Jamaica, Guy spent many hours fishing and diving with his father along the Island’s south coast. He was obsessed with the creatures of the sea and began drawing pictures of the many different fish he observed. Guy captures marine wildlife animals in their natural environment with extraordinary detail and brilliant colors.
Watch the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation video here. The Foundation is an organization of philanthropists, conservationists, scientists, and educators focused on developing sensible strategies for promoting the conservation of our oceans and nurturing the next generation of marine scientists and guardians of our seas.

Our Peace Signs are handpainted on woodboard ... exclusive tropical designs by American designer Joanne Ferarra.
It is inspiring how quickly this symbol created for nuclear disarmament has spread around the world as the “peace symbol”, becoming one of the most recognized symbols on earth.
Designed in 1958, The Peace Action Symbol was used in the first Aldermaston Easter Peace Walk in England. The symbol is the composite semaphore signal for the letters ‘N’ (two arms outstretched pointing down at 45 degrees) and ‘D’ (one arm upraised above the head) standing for Nuclear Disarmament, against the background of a round globe.
It has deliberately never been copyrighted. Throughout the years it has taken on many different meanings, including freedom and unity.

Coastal colors, finishes and materials make up the beach decor or coastal living style that we all love … the style that perfectly suits our beach decor art. It is, of course, a lifestyle. And, we are indebted to Stanley Furniture’s website for a beautiful presentation in living color, detailed text, and video of what exactly we mean.
Elements of the coastal living style include three distinct color palettes:
1) SEA GLASS. This color scheme borrows from those twinkling treasures collected over long walks on the beach. Layers of blues and greens – in shades ranging from royal to periwinkle. Set against white, these colors dazzle, or mix and match to create your own coastal mosaic.
2) PASTEL. Pastels are equally at home in casual or more sophisticated settings. Blend blues and greens with the playful pink of conch to create a Caribbean getaway every day.
3) AMERICANA. Head due East to capture the look of the Cape with this classic color combination. Go nautical or patriotic with accents of red, white and blue or explore the many shades of the sea from deepwater to navy.
So go ahead and paint your lifestyle today!
