Photography to Add Modern, Beachy Feel

Sometimes I look around and lament the fact that almost all of my furnishings and accessories are comprised of other peoples old things. I do love vintage and shopping secondhand, but I also don’t want my home to look dated and dowdy. I’d like to just go out and buy a clean-lined sofa and coffee table and a few shiny new accessories, to impart a more modern aesthetic. However, my real life budget holds me back from those larger purchases. So, I’m always looking for small ways to add bits of modern appeal.

I’ve come up with a plan to do a beach inspired photo display in the dining room. I’m not sure if it will be a gallery wall or if I’ll spread them out around the room, since I don’t have tons of wall space. I’ve taken quite a few beach photos throughout the years, of the different coasts I’ve visited. I might also add a few Etsy finds into the mix. I’d frame them all in simple, white picture frames. I think that photos like these will mesh well with the dining nook fabrics I chose last week.

These are the fabrics I ordered last Friday, for the dining bench.
