:: Cover It With Art ::

Coastal space with lots of art and decorReady to get the most out of your walls? Good! Because it’s time to slap some art up on them, around them and in them!

One cannot just hang any old art though, no-no. No one wants to be that person that just puts something in their home because they saw it once in a magazine. We must strive to be better than that. Sit down and have an honest, open conversation with yourself about art. Put some thought into it because it’s something you are going to be looking at it everyday and every guest that enters your home with see. This is why we choose something fun! We choose something meaningful! We choose something colorful! Something silly! Something that will be cherished and loved!

Plus half the fun is going out and searching for the art. The search for art is a great way to get to know yourself. You find your likes, dislikes and what really calls to you. Art is truly a great way to express yourself and to further imprint onto your home.

As always we won’t leave you baby birds without proper art inspiration. This, of course, is just a mere taste of what’s out in the wonderful word waiting to be added to your home. Go out into the world and find a piece that begs to be on your walls! Or realistically fire up the google and type in ‘coastal art’ or something niche like that.

keyweststyle-3-lWe’re loving these Key West homes today! They’re getting us in the mood for sun and summer! We can’t wait! We know we have no right to complain about the weather since we live in California and we only have ‘one season’ year round. But it’s not true! It might not get snowy or poler vortex-like, but it definitely gets cold for us Californians! And just like the rest of you, we long for warm, sunny summer days.

So let these amazingly beautiful Key West homes bring you up and out of the cold slump and into better days. Enjoy all the rich colors and warm tones that the designers use throughout the spaces to really give it a tropical, coastal look and feel.

How nice would it be to spend some time with the family out on patio soaking up the sun and company? In due time my friends! Soon warmer weather will be here.

Basing your home’s decor off of beautiful sea glass colors is a sure way to give your home the ultimate coastal feel. You can’t go wrong with the coastal blues and greens that sea glass naturally has. Plus you automatically have decorating pieces that match your color scheme.

This color scheme gives you those cool, coastal blues that are complimented by the greens that set the perfect tone to start decorating on. You can utilize these colors in multiple ways and hues. You can use pastel blues and greens or even use bold ones. If you want to get extra wild you can always mix the two together. Check out what some of these designers have done and used sea glass colors in these spaces!

:: 3 Quick Tips For A Beachy Bedroom! ::

Tuesday Tips

294b1a186993ebb168a1605ee62029e4We’ve got 3 quick tips for you guys to create a wonderful beachy bedroom. These aren’t going to transform your bedroom into a coastal, getaway destination or anything of that sorts. That would be nice though, right? These tips are to help everyone with their bedroom no matter where they are whether they’re just moving in, have been settled for quite some time and even those who are ready to change things up. These 3 tips will help you get started and, at the very least, point you in the right direction.

1. Let the light in.

Open up those windows and let that space breathe! Most coastal spaces have a light, airy feeling to them and how do you think they accomplish that? By letting the light in! So don’t hide the inside of you home from the world! Let it see what’s going on out there!

2. Keep it simple.

There’s no secret that less can be more. You don’t need to go crazy in a coastal bedroom. All you need to do is pick out your fabrics, a little art for the walls, your bed and one or two extra furniture pieces to decorate your room with. It will go a lot further then you think.

3. Never hesitate to design in white.

Using the color white sets the perfect mood of peacefulness and relaxation. Who wouldn’t want to come home to a bedroom that invokes that every time they set foot in it? Exactly. So if you aren’t sure what color(s) to use in your bedroom, you can never go wrong with white.
