Blue Couch Candids: Shells

 

“The seaweed I gathered from my recent trip to New Zealand is the most wild I’ve seen,” says Linda Rodin. “Some of it is hot pink and ivory sheets, others are like strange manes of wild hair from an underwater mermaid.”

Collecting fragments from beaches and markets around the world is one of Linda Rodin's passions; her shell collection, which she estimates contains 2000 specimens, is one of many meaningful mementos that serve as natural art and decoration in her home.
