Incorporating Tortoiseshell into Your Avalon Home

Incorporating Tortoiseshell into Your Avalon Home

Incorporating tortoiseshell accessories is a great way to add a sophisticated touch to your Avalon Bloomingdale home.

Real tortoiseshell material is produced from the shells of large species of sea turtles or tortoises, but it was officially banned in the 70s due to over usage and possible extinction of certain species of turtles and tortoises. In America, it is illegal to buy natural tortoiseshell, so rest assured that no turtles were harmed with the purchase of your favorite iPhone case.

However, adding faux tortoiseshell accents to your home is both chic and classic. Let’s take a look at our favorite tortoiseshell decor inspirations!
