:: Geometric Patterns In Coastal Homes ::


What’s Trending Wednesday

Coastal cottage with stripes and geometric patternsPatterns are a staple in coastal home decor. With many of the common patterns used in coastal homes, a new one has been showing up. The geometric pattern has been spotted offering a fun and unique way to add some character and style to a space.

Geometric patterns effortlessly make their way into coastal homes because of their playful style. They’re also a quick step away from the classic stripe patterns that often show up in nautical home and beach cottages. The two patterns can be used to play off of each other, but the geometric pattern can quickly steal the show.

With the eye catching style of geometric patterns, a little accent piece is all you need. It’s easy to add a fun pillow, throw or rug to add a pop of style to the space. With the sharp lines and repeating patterns our eyes are naturally drawn to the patterns. This creates a fun accent piece that can help carry the eyes through the room.

Get inspired by this fun and energetic pattern! The geometric lines and shapes will be a fun addition to the home and add a great focal point!

:: Tidy Up This Year ::


Tuesday Tips

Bright coastal living room bathed in natural lightA new year is a new chance to start fresh. Start fresh with your life and with your home. One thing most of us can agree on is that we never have enough space in our homes. Everyone can always use a little extra counter space here or some extra closet space there.

Since we can’t just create extra space out of thin air, what if we looked for space in a different way the year? What if we get rid of the stuff that is taking up space? The extra stuff we don’t need or use. This could be the year you reclaim your home and finally clear up some space for the things that really matter and provide use in your life.

There’s one simple rule to accomplish this goal. If it doesn’t serve a purpose and hasn’t been used in 6 months, get rid of it.

Donate it, sell it off, repurpose it and, if you have to, throw it away. The ultimate goal is to just get rid of it. Some people will find this task a lot harder than others. There is a major psychological element to actually get rid of items that we own. If you find yourself struggling, try bumping up the time of unused items to a year. The point is to create space in the house, get rid of clutter and free yourself from the unnecessary junk.

And before anyone says anything, there can always be exceptions. The exceptions can be things like collectables, heirloom pieces, extremely sentimental items and whatever you want to keep. This is just an easy guide to help you take a honest and real inventory of your belongings. We all know we don’t need 32 sweaters or 18 blankets, so let’s give it to those who do need these things. Start this year by helping yourself and others. Get your year started off in the right direction!
