What’s Trending Wednesday

Bright coastal living room with a mixture of textures and stylesIf you’re looking to add a little more style to any space the best way to do it is with textures. Textures can be used in many different ways with many different materials. The best part is, you can use as many as you want or as many as you need.

Add texture to the walls with textured wallpapers or introduce a textured animal fur or jute rug on those wood floors. Textures are essential to creating a great space. They allow you to layer up a space without cramming stuff into it and make the room more interesting.

Imagine you are going for a modern coastal look in your home. If you try to keep it clean and minimal you will create a sterile looking space that may come off lifeless. When you introduce textures like metals, fun patterns or coastal accessories it brings your home to life.

The possibilities are truly endless with the available materials we have out on today’s market. Take a look at the pictures and notice the different materials the designers use in each space. More importantly, take notes on how the designers use specific textures in each space and what that texture accomplishes. You’ll be a texture wiz in no time!

Tuesday Tips

Bright coastal living room decorated with a large area rug and natural wood furnishingsScale is one of the most important factors when it comes to design. It can set the tone for the entire space. It can make a room feel full, empty, right and wrong. When you’re designing a space you need to keep everything to the scale of the room. When you start buying without considering scale you’ll be in for a big surprise when it comes to the install.

Without knowing measurements of the space, furniture and accessories they potentially won’t fit which can cause a headache or two. You want to know what will fit in the space before you head off hunting for it. Knowing the measurements of your space will also allow you to use it to its full potential as well as show you were you can take design risks with scale. So do your homework, know your space and pick pieces that will not only look great in your space, but will actually fit!

:: 3 Easy Tips To Help You Design A Beachy Bedroom ::

Tuesday Tips

Coastal bedroom with natural light, white decor and light wood texturesWe’ve got 3 easy tips to help you create a wonderful beachy bedroom. These aren’t going to transform your bedroom into a coastal, getaway destination or anything of that sorts. That would be nice though, right? These tips are to help everyone with their bedroom, no matter what shape the room is in. Whether you’re just moving in or looking to change things up, these 3 tips will help you get started.

1. Let there be light!

Open up those windows and let that space breathe! Most coastal spaces have a light, airy feeling to them and how do you think they accomplish that? By letting the light in! So don’t hide the inside of you home from the world! Let it see what’s going on out there!

2. Keep it simple.

There’s no secret that less is more. There’s no need to go crazy in a coastal bedroom which makes your job easier. All you need to do is pick out your fabrics, a little art for the walls, a nice bed frame and one or two extra furniture pieces to decorate your room with. It will go a lot further then you think while leaving the space feeling open.

3. Decorate with white.

Decorating with white creates the feeling of peacefulness and relaxation. Who wouldn’t want to come home to a bedroom that invokes that every time they set foot in it? We know we wouldn’t hate that! So if you aren’t sure what color to use in your bedroom, you can never go wrong with white.
