Oversize Clamshells in Interior Design

Trend Alert: Oversize Clamshells

The master bath of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne's Hidden Hills, CA, home, designed by Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, has a decorative clamshell bowl from Mecox Gardens.

One of my favorite trends lately is the oversize clamshell. It's beachy but not kitschy, and its scale makes it a statement piece. It's no surprise I've been seeing them in the most sophisticated of homes. If you find one on the beach, you've practically stumbled upon a pot of gold, but you can find authentic shells in antique shops and flea markets. Otherwise, you'll be happy to know that reproductions are popping up in a few convenient and affordable national retailers. Let's take a look at some of the beautiful and creative ways interior designers are using oversize clamshells in interiors.
