:: Style With Sage ::


What’s Trending Wednesday

Coastal bedroom with great decor and a sage color paletteWhen we think of coastal colors we immediately think of blues, whites and yellows. The green hues can be forgotten even though they are a huge part of the coastal palette, especially the color sage. Sage is a great color for any coastal home. It’s easy on the eyes, calming and adds a sense of serenity to the space. It allows you to mix in all sorts of colors into it as well. Natural materials work great with the color and allow you to really bring out the coastal style. Take a look at how these designers have used the hue to decorate these spaces and make them look great!

Coastal Thanksgiving table decor with rustic influences and fall decorationsThanksgiving is one of the best holidays of the year! Do you know why? Is it all of the family time? Maybe. Is it all of the fall decor? Maybe. Is it the pumpkin spice lattes? Maybe. Is it the all-you-can-stuff-into-your-little-tummy-until-you-pass-out-into-a-turkey-coma and then overdose on pumpkin pie? Yes! That’s exactly it! We have a blast cooking for the family and getting everyone together at the table. Is your Thanksgiving table ready for everyone though? If not, that’s perfectly okay! Today we’ve got you and your table covered! Take a look at how these tables are designed. They’ve got their centerpiece covered, they brought out beautiful tableware and they’ve done it with ease.

When you look at the tables you’ll notice one main theme – space. They kept the decor simple and didn’t cover every inch of the table. Let the food be the final touch of the decor! Let those sweet ‘taters and stuffing do the heavy lifting. Plus, on Thanksgiving we need all the table space we can get! And don’t forget you already have enough to clem up in the kitchen. Make the table easier for yourself later on. If you still need to grab some extra pieces for the table, come on down to the store or check out our online store! Go straight to the kitchen section here!

:: Get That Bedroom Nice & Cozy! ::


Tuesday Tips

Coastal bedroom decorated with a white pallete and rustic inspired decorIt’s starting to cool down here in Laguna and we even got some rain this past weekend! It was a nice change of pace from the heat. We were bundled up  in our throws and had our warm tea within arms each at all times. With the temperature dropping more and more each day, we want to make sure our bedroom is prepared for the cold weather. That means extra bedding, warm rugs for our toesies, lots of pillows and a night stand with plenty of room. During the fall and winter seasons we want to be able to cuddle up, turn on Netflix and stay cozy in bed all day. Oh, and for no one to judge us for wanting/doing just that.

So make sure you get your bedroom ready for the cold days ahead. Let Tuvalu Home help you! We’ve got a quick checklist for you with links to everything you need for the bedroom.

Cozy bedroom checklist:

1. Extra blankets, lots of blankets!

2. More pillows! And then some more pillows!

3. A soft, warm rug. No cold feet!

4. Nightstand surface space! Those books, drinks, and candles need room too!
