Shorely Inspired

Like the soft crash of ocean waves, a sense of calm washes over visitors to Liz Orgera’s blog, Shorely Chic. Her style is coastal, simple, and comfortable—from the beautifully beachy decor in her Fairfield County, Connecticut apartment (It’s amazing what she’s done with a small, rented space. Really. Check it out here) to her online Etsy boutique where she sells seashell adorned mirrors, beach chic Ikat throw pillows, and handmade seersucker French memo boards (like the one we used to make this inspiration board. Buy it here). In just her mid-twenties, Liz has started a business, a brand, and a blog. We can’t wait to see what the next decade brings.
