Living our Vision for Eco/Beach Friendly Products

When I reopened Caron's Beach House , it was incredibly important to me that we find products that fit our vision for "green" home decor, using recycled items and featuring artisans that also support those ideals. (it's harder than you think...) 


Imagine my delight, when I received Jolee Pink's e-mail about her EcoArt Shore Pillows.  I am very excited about carrying her work on our website, fabulous easy-care, modern beach house pillows made of earth-friendly organic textiles and water based ink for her hand printed designs.  Not to mention the use of an unique fiber fill made from recycled plastic bottles! 


Best of all, she's a West Coast beach girl (just like me!) living in the small beach town of Encintas, California.  We hit it off right away on the phone and through e-mail.  I know you will enjoy her too!


From her press kit: 
California artist Jolee Pink started her career as a graphic designer. After moving to the seaside town of Encinitas, CA, her appreciation of the ocean environment grew along with an interest in working with clay. Jolee studied her natural surroundings to create captivating ceramic sculptures infused with an organic appeal. Winning national recognition for her outdoor sea life sculpture garden and interior mural work, Jolee started her innovative company,  to showcase her colorful ceramic sculpture and stylish design for the home and garden. 



Jolee’s passion to fuse her artistic expression with home accessories fashioned to promote greener living led to the development of her modern EcoArt collections of organic cotton throw pillows and organic tote bags. 


Her images are inspired by nature, world travels and the southern California coastal lifestyle. She combines bright colors with fresh bold designs to add sizzle and pop to her eco chic home decor line.




Inviting you all to stop by and see all of her designs on our site. Think about mixing and matching to create something new and exciting for spring in your beach house!
