Shells, coral and fossils look phenomenal when mixed with additional elements of nature, such as moss, ferns and other greenery. This gorgeous terrarium by DoodleBirdie puts a genuine ammonite fossil on display.
A minimalist table with nautical-inspired decor sets a coastal tone leading into this contemporary living room. Inside, floor-to-ceiling windows showcase ocean views while a stone fireplace brings warmth into the space.
Consider alternative materials for creating your outdoor room. Shells, wine bottles, crushed glass and fossils make stunning outdoor countertops. Using different hardscape materials — like stamped or stained concrete — can save you a bundle while infusing the backyard with style.
The fox looks right at home in this rustic powder room where an intriguing mix of textures makes a beautifully layered look. Walls are covered in gray andesite slate; the countertop is a fossil slab. The sink and waterfall faucet are both antique copper. To match the sink's warm tone, designers gave the pendant a dark copper patina finish.
A solar generator isn’t going to give you the same power, right now at least, as the gas-guzzling behemoths. But it is going to keep going … and going … and going … even when there’s no more in the tank for its bigger fossil-fuel-eating brother. And it won’t expel deadly gasses like potentially fatal carbon monoxide, either. Solar generators can be used to power multiple hand-held devices, a mini-fridge and other small but survival-necessary items. So for those who require powered devices to breathe or refrigerated medications, a solar generator could be the difference between life and death during an extended outage.
