Clam Shells

Giant clam shells can be used in many different ways. They can be found in the bathroom in the shape of a sink, or as a decorative bowl filled with sponges, little soaps. They can also be used as decorative accents throughout the house on a side table, filled with shells, moss, etc, or even placed in a fireplace. Here are some inspirational photos featuring giant clam shells. I have one in the guest bathroom filled with mini toiletries I have "collected" from my hotel stays. I would love a large one to plant orchids in for my breakfast table.

  1. I love the clam shell between the blue and white lamps!

  2. I don't know, those big ones scare me ever since watching that giant clam Sea Hunt episode with I was little. I'm a scallop kind of guy.

  3. Brilliant! I love this idea! You can practically use it anywhere. Have a gorgeous weekend, Kellie xx
