What’s Trending Wednesday
Take advantage of your bookshelf! Use it as a creative way to not only display coastal accessories, but books as well. It’s nothing new that books can be used as decor. A well placed coffee table book can lend a great decorative hand to a coastal living room. That doesn’t mean a well thought out and designed bookshelf can’t do the same. The days of boring books on your bookshelf are over! There’s no reason you shouldn’t take advantage of that prime design space. Bring style with the books by placing them vertical or laying them horizontal to mix up the look on the shelf. Lean books to give your bookshelf a break from the routine too. You can even plan out your bookshelf and take it a step further by creating a color scheme throughout the shelf (pictured below).
Have fun and be creative with the space you have in your coastal home. If you look at your bookshelf and inspiration isn’t sparking creative ideas then look at these photos. See what these designers have done and how they have decorated these bookshelves. Get inspired and create a stunning coastal bookshelf you can be proud of!
Designing for kids is always a blast! You get to decorate with all the fun and playful options that you normally don’t get to. Dust off that crazy imagination and get ready to collaborate with the most fun clients around – kids. The excitement that comes from them participating in the design of their new space is what it’s all about. Let’s take a look a few rooms to get you in the right design space and bring out your inner child!
Colors, color, colors! You have an endless color options and palettes to work with when it comes to kids’ bedrooms. No color is off limits. Not all designers want to stray too far from the overall style and feel of the home’s decor which means they won’t go too crazy with the colors. And others will let the kids pick out their favorite colors and go wild! It’s a great way to get the kids involved and creates a fun environment for them to be themselves. You don’t want them waking up in a dark, gloomy space do you? No way! So bring out the colors!
Looking to bring a little color to the kid’s bedroom, but not wanting to go all out? Then colored accents are your new best friends! Use accent colors to bring small pops of bright colors into the space without going overboard with colors. Stay true to the home’s overall theme and still have a little fun in the kid’s room. Accenting the right pieces can be tricky, you want the accented pieces to be noticed, however, you don’t want eyes to linger on them. Start with a few accented pieces and then add or subtract from there.
You can bring fun design pieces into the kid’s bedroom that both of you will like! Do you have an extra model sail boat, vintage chest or rustic dresser that needs a home? Well, there’s no reason to count out the kids’ bedrooms. They will get a kick out of having something like a model sail boat in their room and you can finally display it instead of hiding it in the garage or attic.
Speaking of model sail boats, they are the perfect addition and decor pieces for the kids’ bedrooms. Designers beware, you may want to avoid investing in antique or vintage model because they are more than likely going to be looked at as toys and not models. We all know where that leads – broken or ‘lost’.
Not into bright colors? Here’s kids’ bedroom designed with soft, neutral colors. It’s simple, calm and inviting. There’s nothing over the top about this space and there doesn’t need to be; sometimes less is more. We love a space that looks like it was put together effortlessly and this has just that look.

We’ve got five, modern coastal pins that should be all over your Pinterest boards, so get those pin buttons ready and start pinning! Also, don’t forget to enjoy your week.
