Inspired by the imperfections of sand and sea, the Eivissa collection from Casafina brings casual luxury to your coastal cuisine. Produced in Portugal from dreamy yet durable stoneware, these artisan dishes feature organic shapes that mimic the sea, offering a full tablescape from individual plates, bowls and mugs to large serving pieces and platters. A reflective glaze softens the sturdy construction, and all pieces in this timeless collection are available in sand beige or sea blue. Mix and match settings for a more vibrant table without sacrificing the serenity of seaside living. Three-piece setting starting at $89.


Designed to complete your beach-inspired bedroom in style, the Ocean Reef Throw Pillow from Crane & Canopy is a versatile workhorse that elegantly enhances any coastal design. Accent simple white linens with the rich navy blue of this soft cotton throw pillow, or add it to the corals and creams of your maximalist maritime bedscape. The 12-inch by 24-inch lumbar pillow is equally delightful on a sofa or softening a sunroom chaise or deck chair. Crane & Canopy offers a complete line of beach bedding, including designs featuring fronds, corals and more in classic coastal tones. $81.


Handcrafted from natural mother-of-pearl in iridescent tones of blue, cream and white, the Blue Heron Mirror provides a subtle seaside shimmer in any light. At 38 inches by 26 inches, this large piece is equally impressive hung vertically on a gallery wall or entryway, or hung horizontally over a mantle, sofa or sideboard. Individual details of the natural materials are delicately preserved, allowing each artisan-made piece to offer its own unique character as it introduces an unmistakably coastal quality to any room. $969.


Upgrade any seaside setting with the organic design of Cailíní Coastal’s Kaho’olawe Armchair. A series of airy circles woven from natural rattan is cushioned by sand-toned upholstery constructed of stain-repellant Crypton fabric. Delicate in design yet durable by nature, this piece can stand alone as a statement chair in any room, be paired in a patio or sunroom vignette or even grouped at an inspired coastal table. The Kaho’olawe Arm- chair measures 23 inches wide by 25 inches deep by 34 inches high, with a 19-inch seat height. $800.

Saudi Arabia Fosters Sustainable, Regenerative Tourism Along the Red Sea

 My first experience of Saudi Arabia's Red Sea coast now seems like ancient history. It was 1995, and I was visiting my ornithologist cousin and is wife. Getting into the kingdom wasn't easy; I needed sponsorship letters. and a pre-trip interview at the Saudi Arabian Embassy. When I arrived in the country, there was no tourist infrastructure. We toured by SUV ad often slept under the stars. Thus, one morning, we woke up on roll-out mattresses on a Red Sea beach 200 miles from Jeddah.
