c85a51b3c4e7eceaabb940d8effccc00We love the way these wicker pendants look! They look so amazing in these kitchens and add great volume to the space. These wicker pendants capture your attention while filling up the typically unused vertical space that is begging to be inhabited in every kitchen. The pedants also have that classic coastal feel and vibe from the wicker which makes them easily blend into the rest of the coastal decor. Check out some of these images and how these designers used the wicker pendants to complete these kitchens. 10798902c36ec89bc870bc56a3a76961 d2ccf29033d29dedb2cae7ba5e4002d830cd589abaad904e7469f5b01f3192f6

7ad05f6be1ab0f154d18d80392626590Grey is a color that can wear many hats in decor. It can be used to create a beautiful, rustic cottage that mixes neutrals to produce a space that you could live in forever and it can be used as a dramatic punch of color that stands out, but doesn’t ruin the design of the space. The color grey is resourceful and an all around useful color in home decor. It can be joined with most colors and looks great. Our favorite combinations with grey are yellows and pinks. These bright colors pop extremely well with the subtle, neutral grey backing.  We love the look of a grey colored space and the color’s ability to blend into any space. Check out some of these gorgeous grey spaces and enjoy these designers work!1b096f25d52cac73d7eafc44bc72112a 4ce88e320d366c5af6274c0dc0ae6c53 73dcf0b45b1966e41c3ad3e4aab7d0e8 137c4a681a96c1be91c4834e698b1c00 784a014402cdf68ad69a22ba2b3d9430 1821e96c82e38f3c393cb415a9d4699d ba55403c65d84eb412207a7ccd3bc9c4 da28e75b4714045f9eddfe50a51b0db3 dafee82334b06ccbbe2ec4f2ab2d33c7 f0e979eee07ffcdee8dc1c84afbc167f fa1e022a043c3627829fc523eeb96898

tuvalu-vegas-henderson-7The Tuvalu team headed out to Vegas this last week to install our wonderful clients new home decor! And we love the way it came out! We journeyed from our beloved Laguna Beach, fought the heat (just a cool 105 degrees), and a coastal, desert retreat was born! We’re so excited for this oasis in the desert to finally come to life! The designers for this lovely project were Laurie Alter, Stephanie Molinaro and Wendy Grand Pre. The true heroes of this install team though were Craig and Collin! Thanks to these gentlemen we were able to move everything in and get everything set up!

We’ve got plenty more pictures for you guys including some before and afters as well as some behind the scenes photos! We also have product details for each room and will be posting those as well! So check back with us so you can get the full Vegas install experience! We hope you love it as much as we do! Happy Friday!

:: 3 Quick Tips To Keep Your Home Cool ::

Tuesday Tips

9195bfde77f2c46fecb2f0264fbb5f9bIt seems like summer decided to show up a little late this year and now it’s really starting to heat up! But you can beat the heat! And that doesn’t mean running your A/C 24/7. So we’ve put together this quick tip list on how to keep your home cool. Hopefully it will help you guys and keeps your home cool!e3359b9d45607fe77fe723a3ec17ec131. Keep the sun out with curtains or shades.

If you let the sun come in it’s only going to do one thing, heat up the entire house – fast. So let’s nip that in the bud and cover up those windows! Grab some curtains or some fun bamboo shades and prevent the sun from heating up your house!
79367b6383c48996f475cb0a01f0c89d2. Get yourself a good ceiling fan.

Keep that air moving in your home! The last thing you want is hot air just sitting around. Invest in a good fan because when it’s hot you’re going to be running it for long periods of time and as always, you get what you pay for. So make it count!

fa3e98ba48737856dbf22f3a247e25773. Do your laundry when it cools down.

Do we really want that hot dryer running when it’s already heating up out there? The answer is no. No we don’t. So do your loads early before the sun really starts to heat up or at night when the sun goes down. Preferably earlier in the night though so the house has time to cool down before bed.  Stay cool out there!
