What inspires so many successful businesses? It’s when someone follows their passion, and that’s exactly what I found when I stumbled across, “Oh So Coastal” in Orange Beach.
Owner Karen Sage began painting and designing coastal accessories and furniture years ago from her home in Fairhope, which led to friends wanting to own a piece, and their friends, and on and on and on . . .
Poof! Just like that (well, maybe a little more details and hard labor), and Oh So Coastal was born.
Karen and her husband Dave are still very much hands-on owners, as was evident by their paint spattered work clothes they were wearing when I met them.
Their handmade line of furnishings has expanded to included great brands of uniquely styled pieces ready to furnish a tiny corner of your cottage or an entire beach house.
Karen and Dave also have another shop that supposedly has a completely different “vibe” in Foley, so now I’m itching to get over there and take a look at that place as well. (It’s located at 6642 Hwy. 59).
This painted table features the invasive species, the Lionfish, which although dreaded for it’s ability to wipe out other species, has been found to be quite tasty, and local chefs have put it on their menus. Such a pretty fish to have heavy issues.
For a slightly more formal, yet still coastal look, I loved this table with the rope chargers. Ahoy!
For those of you who live near, or may be visiting soon, be sure you stop by Oh So Coastal at 25741 Perdido Beach Blvd. (near Publix) or call at 251-981-0830. You can view their beautiful web site HERE and I’m sure they’d be glad to ship something right to your door.
Happy coastal decorating everyone!
