Inspiration: Natural Shell Sconces

Lots of people collect shells. And lots of people display them in rock gardens, laid out in trays, set up on shelves. But here's a stylish, unexpected way to display a treasured shell:

From Roman & Williams' design for John Dory Oyster Bar, these are sconces featuring single natural shells. Whether it's a fan-shaped shell like the one pictured up the left or a conch like you see on the right, this is an awesome way to showcase shells. It shows off the thin-walled beauty of shells by shining light through them and it's an unusual way to introduce a natural element into decor. See more at the blog of Roman & Williams.
