:: 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.

:: 3 Easy Ways To Update Your Bathroom ::

Tuesday Tips

9edb0a6297c99790d7a3e5652bcea37eThere’s no reason to be unhappy with your bathroom. It’s easy to forget, but it’s even easier to decorate it! We’ve got 3 easy ways to update your bathroom that won’t break the bank or require your to hire an interior designer. Check them out!

1. Open it up!

Don’t hide anything by using open storage. Leave everything out in the open and make it easier for you to grab it when you need it. Plus, it’s easy to hide it all under the sink and let the mess build up. Take preventative steps to fight the mess!

2. Don’t forget the towels!

Towels are an easy way to decorate the bathroom and give it an extra boost! They can introduce colors and patterns without going over board. Maybe you want to add pops of color or unique patterns? Towels can do just that!

3. Cover the floor!

Rugs are essential! They give us something soft and warm to plant our toes on while providing another decor element. Use the rug to bring some texture into the space and mix up the feel in the bathroom.

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!
