:: In Love With Built-In Shelves ::


What’s Trending Wednesday

Coastal decor details on built-in shelvesWe’re loving these built-in shelves! Who doesn’t like more storage? We know we do! We’re always wishing we had more space for all the things in the stores and in our homes. This thought got our brains thinking about extra storage and creative ways to maximize the space we have. So naturally we hit the boards in search of some inspiration and now we’re sharing some of our favorites!

We adore and swoon over these built-ins. They make us kind of – okay they really make us – want to tear into some walls and start a new project. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. Until then we’ll just dream and share some beautiful built-in shelves we have found.

What do you guys think? Are you in need of built in shelves? Share some of your thoughts or favorite built in’s with us! We’d love to see them!Coastal living room with cozy built-in shelves Large coral pieces displayed on built-in shelvesCoastal kids bedroom with built-in shelvesCoastal nook with built-in shelves and seating creating a perfect a space

Monday Pins

Beach house home detailsIt’s Monday and it’s time for those coastal home decor pins! We have five more pins that are ready for those coastal home Pinterest boards. Hopefully this brings a little bit of warmth to you because it’s been really cold for us here in So Cal (we know we have no right complaining, but we still will). We searched for a few pins that reminded us of warmer days with lots of bright sunshine. We hope these help you have a good week and have a happy Monday!

:: 3 Quick Tips For The Holiday Kitchen ::


Tuesday Tips

Coastal kitchen with plenty of space and natural lightIt’s the season of the kitchen and we’re spending a good chunk of time in our beloved space. When we’re whirling around conducting a spiced filled symphony in our kitchens, we want to make sure all is in harmony and on cue. There’s no need to make your life more difficult, that’s why we’ve come up with these 3 quick tips to get your kitchen ready for the holidays. Get those aprons ready, heat up those ovens and get ready for the holiday season!

1. Cut The Clutter

If it doesn’t need to be in the kitchen get rid of it. Seriously, the last thing we need is to be tripping over things or frantically searching for counter space. The holidays are stressful enough, the last thing we need to add to it is mess and clutter.

2. Check The Kitchen Tools

Is everything good to go? Are those whisks still, well, whisky? Make sure the wine is ready while you’re at it. Do those pots and pans have another season in them? Are those mixers still mixing? Check and make sure everything you need is actually going to work. We don’t want a meltdown while that souffle is melting down.

3. Carry A Stockpile

We’re not saying you need all Costco this holiday season, but you definitely want to make sure you have plenty of goods. Running out mid-meal to grab ingredients is completely avoidable these holidays. Also the holidays are always faster and demand more time for everything. That being said, make sure you have some quick, healthy and easy meals ready to go.

Got all that ladies and gentlemen? There’s no reason these holidays shouldn’t go smooth and be successful. Tuvalu wants to help you guys out, but much more importantly, we want you guys to enjoy yourselves over the holidays. Happy cooking!Cozy coastal kitchenCountry style kitchen with a cozy feel Rustic inspired details in a kitchen

:: Tuva-Luvs – Peggi ::


Thursday Tuva-Luvs

This week our Tuva-Luv comes from Peggi! One of Peggi’s picks is the currey & company axel orb chandelier! This large-scale piece owes its commanding presence to its size and strong form. The chandelier’s steel frame construction provides a framework for curved wooden slats. The rustic sophistication of this chandelier is enhanced with a Chestnut stain on the wood that is then slightly washed, giving it an aged, used appearance. Add this magnificent chandelier to your home! Shop the currey & company axel orb chandelier now!
