Every Seasalt window is bespoke and completely unique…
Our team (say hello overleaf) design with a vintage feel and tweak the windows to fit each of our shops.
They’re different from the average, identikit shop window. We practice a more
old-fashioned style of window dressing to
try and bring some fun and creativity to the high street. They speak volumes about who we are and where we come from, as well as all the beautiful things we sell.
Seasalt’s window dressers are based in the attic of our Falmouth shop. There’s not alot of headroom but the view over the harbour is great! Up here they design and plan and make all the props that appear in our windows each month.
Cornwall is packed with inspiration; from the landscape & wildlife, to the sea & maritime history & the vibrant art scene. We also get lots of ideas from art & craft books and magazines.
The window design starts with a moodboard and sketches before we move on to making props...
Most of our props are hand made. We sew, felt, glue, paint & all sorts of other craft techniques to make our windows completely unique.
Other props are hunted down in local charity shops and boatyards or found with a bit of beachcombing.
Once all the preparations are done,the window team hit the road. They visit each Seasalt shop to assemble the display.
All Seasalt shops get
a new display every month,
here’s some of our favourites
from the last few years...
How to make
Here in Cornwall we love a spot of beach combing! This window combined nautical outfits with driftwood, ropes, sea urchins & other beach treasures.
Shells were strung together or mounted on little sticks & we couldn’t resist drawing faces on the buoys in the kids’ windows! .
For the launch of the Artists & Potters Collection the windows were filled with artists’ materials and palettes of lovely soft pastel colours.
Wild Flower Walks
Here in Cornwall we know a thing or two about rain. Instead of grumbling we thought we’d celebrate with a window of raincoats, umbrellas and cats and dogs!
Garden Bird Boxes
Bundles of twigs, garden tools and funky fabric covered birdboxes create an autumn mood to go with wellies, gilets & Tin Cloth® jackets.
How to make
your own fleet
of paper boats
The Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival inspired this window of nautical outfits topped with fun hats made from card, felt and stripey fabric.
(or we’ll make you walk the plank!)
The window team really like to go
to town on the Christmas windows
& save their most elaborate ideas
for the December display...
Traditional Christmas decorations with a seaside twist!
We made wreaths with mussel and scallop shells from
local restaurants and added starfish ‘stars’ and snow
frosting in the shape of coral. Fancy making a sea
shell wreath?Watch our ‘how-to’ video >
