:: Lay Down Those Stripes ::


What’s Trending Wednesday

Striped chair in a coastal living roomStripes are a classic design element and pattern in coastal decor. These lovely lines are exactly what we like during the playful summer season. We’re talking striped rugs, striped pillows, striped blankets, striped curtains, striped towels, striped accessories and whatever else we can fit these colored lines on! They bring a fun look to any space and that’s why they are always welcomed into any home except maybe a Victorian Gothic style home.

They also bring effortless style points to anything they’re on. Don’t believe us? Here’s a simple test anyone can do and it only requires a little imagination. Imagine you have two tea towels, one is white and the other is white with three red stripes. Which one are you going to pick? Most of us will probably choose the red striped tea towel and we don’t blame you because we did too.

Embrace the steps and enjoy the stripes! We’ve gathered a couple great photos that feature stripes, so don’t forget to take notes and see how these designers are using their stripes! Striped chair in a coastal homeCoastal bedroom with a blue and white stripe rugCoastal bathroom with a stripe rug Cute kitchen with a stripe rug

:: Use Materials That Last In Your Coastal Home ::


Tuesday Tips

reclaimed-wood-metal-stools-coastal-backyard-home-decor-tuvaluLiving on the coast can really do a number on your home. That means it’s a must that you invest in the right materials that can take on the coastal weather. If you don’t, things will fall apart and end of costing you a lot more in the long run. Invest in materials that are built to last. What materials might those be? Scroll down and take a look!

1. Metals.

Metals will take on any weather and be left standing, ready for more. Metals, especially steel, will out last every other material you have in or around your house. It will probably still be there after we’re gone too. It’s built tough and built to last. Toss it up on you the roof and let it take the constant coastal weather beating or grab some metal furniture and accessories for the outdoors. Metal goods even work indoors as well and can give the space a nice rustic feel too!

2. Reclaimed Wood.

Reclaimed wood has already seen it’s fair share of weather. It’s proven that it can last so when you use this material in your home you can rest assured that it’s not going to be changing too much. Since it is reclaimed it’s going to be a bit on the pricier side, but the extra money is worth the look and the reassurance of knowing you have a lasting material.

3. Natural Stone Tile.

Tile was created to make our lives easier, give our homes a fantastic look and to last forever. The only way you’re getting rid of your tile is if you tear it out with your own hands. Tile can take a beating from us humans and from any weather Mother Nature can throw at it. If it gets a little wet no problem! A quick mop up or a sunny day and the water’s gone. Plus tile keeps the house cool and we love that during the summer which is okay with us!
