KAREN ROBERTSON CHANNELS THE NATURAL DECORATIVE WORLD

by Marisa Marcantonio


The other day I got an email from a great new resource. I was so thrilled Karen Roberton, a Florida designer of all things shell and sea, reached out to share her company with me. All made in the US, these great natural finds incorporated into decorative objects are beautifully done. Karen has a great eye and was formerly the visual designer for Talbots. I await the next thing Karen designs, as I know it will be a knockout. Take a look at what Karen does below.

These wonderful tortoise shells, totally faux, just hit stores. Clustering the shells in a grouping gives them such an impact.

This blue shell box is unique in it's turquoise color. So beautiful, the swirls look a bit like malachite of the sea variety.

Who does not love a starfish? The large scale of it on the pillow surface is fun and casual, and the hem stitch edge is a nice, clean detail.

Her sea fan mirror incorporates the fan under glass, it is such a nice way to appreciate it as a decorative piece rather than a dust collector on a table.

Made of ultrasuede, the white sand dollar pops off the hot pink background of this pillow. It would make a great gift for that friend by the seashore...

Look at her selection of all nature themed pieces, from pillows to obelisks at Karen Robertson for interior designers. Shop Mrs. Howard at Phoebe Howard's store Mrs. Howard for these pretty pieces. I am sure Phoebe displays Karen's things in a beautiful way, she has a knack for that.
