Thursday Tuva-Luvs

This week our Tuva-Luv comes from Candace! One of her store favorites is this rustic style metal heart sculpture! Give your home character with this incredible, original sculpture. The hammered metal heart is anchored to a rustic piece of reclaimed wood. We love how this intriguing piece juxtaposes the soft sentiment of a heart with the tough materials it’s crafted out of. Display this custom piece on a coffee table or credenza. And if all of that wasn’t enough to, the heart has “Happily Ever After” engraved in French on it. Shop the metal heart sculpture now!

Coastal beach house with built in bunk bedsSpace, space, space! We all want more of it. Whether it’s just an extra cabinet here or another bedroom and a yard there, a little more space never hurt anyone. Unfortunately, it’s just not that easy which means we have to make the best out of what space we do have.

A smaller, or less desired, amount of space doesn’t limit design as much as you might think. When you are forced to get creative in a small space you tend to focus on what matters. In small spaces, it’s all about function.

A room designed with function in mind will transform it into a flowing, livable space. Strip down the design and decor to the bare essentials. When you keep it simple with the essentials you can start to build up the space or keep it simple.

Check out how these designers have used decor in smaller spaces and focused on the needs, not the wants.

Tuesday Tips

Window nook painted a fun turquoise and decorated with pillows to complimentWindow nooks are a great addition to any home. They allow extra light into the home, give you a nice little place to sit and can offer up some extra storage. Does your home have a window nook? If it does, are you taking advantage of it? Don’t overlook this little architectural detail! Window nooks give you plenty of space to decorate and design. You can bring life to them with just a few pillows or you can keep going with the decor and maybe even install some storage space. They also allow you carry your decor throughout the home. They can be used as a transitional area to keep your home’s style flowing from space to space. Plus, who doesn’t enjoy a nice, big window that brightens up a space and lets it breathe? We’re trying to liven up the home and natural light allows us to do just that.

Take a look at what these designers have done with window nooks. See how they style them and what accessories they use to really decorate the nook to it’s fullest! Get inspired and then start on your nook! Or start dreaming about the nook you wish you had ;).
