This Thursday we have a Tuva-Luv from Maddie! Some of her store favorites are the wire hanging pendant lamps! Classic and distinctive, these wire pendant lights will bring to life a passion for all things architectural and time worn. These airy pendant lights look beautiful as focal point lighting, grouped over a counter or table or use individually to draw attention to a nook. Take your choice form the three different styles or get them all to complete the look! Get a closer look at the wire hanging pendant lamps on the Tuvalu Home web store!

This week’s Thursday Tuva-Luv comes from our fearless leader and founder Laurie! One of her Tuvalu Home store favorites is the Hobie: Master of Water, Wind & Waves book!

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.
Spotted in Country Living magazine, the Palecek Harbor Wood Coffee Table! The coffee table has a brushed stainless steel top that has rivet detail along edge. It also features a base made out of recycled wood that has an ombre whitewash finish. It’s a great piece to add to a rustic beach style cottage!
