Swings are a great way to just relax and enjoy being outside. Since they typically need to be mounted to a sturdy, overhead structure, you will have the much needed shade to help maximize those enjoyable summer days.

When it comes to swing options you have many choices. Go for a classic swinging bench with comfy pillow tops, a cozy day bed style would offer endless napping opportunities and you can even opt for individual chair swings which are perfect for limited spaces. Get inspired by these swings and look into setting yourself up this summer!

Coastal outdoor dining spaceThe sun is out and it’s starting to heat up! Perfect weather to head to the backyard for a dinner and a sunset. The spring and summer seasons are great for outdoor dining. When the heat starts to linger into the nights it creates a cozy outdoor dining experience. We have 3 tips to help you take total advantage of the weather and get the most out of your outdoor dining experience!

1. Dinnerware

There’s no need for extra fancy dishes and utensils, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be cute! Heading outside for a little dinner can easily get messy and the last thing you want or need are broken plates or cups – leave the glass and porcelain inside. Find cute melamine plates and acrylic cups for the perfect outdoor dining experience!

2. Comfy Seats

Being comfortable makes every experience better. This is a fact. Outdoor dinners are one-fourth eating and three-fourths spending time with the people you love. Why not make sure everyone is comfortable while they enjoy the weather? Invest in some chairs that offer comfort. Take it to the next level in decor and comfort by snagging some outdoor cushions for ultimate coziness.

3. Enjoy The View

This tip is the most important! Enjoy being outside! Enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful weather! Enjoy the company and enjoy your backyard space!

Coastal kitchen with boho chic style and open shelvesWe’ve been seeing a lot open shelf and open storage kitchens lately that we love! It’s another fun way to bring style and character to your coastal kitchen. It’s a pretty simple idea; stop hiding everything and show it off!

Let people see all of your plates, cups, spices, utensils, cooking supplies, pots, pans and small appliances. We love it because it opens the kitchen right up. It gets rid of the closed off look and invites everyone right in. When people display their spices and baking essentials in mason jars or other glass jars it gives the kitchen a cute, homey look. Plus when they’re out, they’re begging to be used and make you want to cook and bake!

With everything out for your family and guests to see there will be no more wondering where the mugs or a spatchula are. Also when you have no where to hide your dishes it will finally give you a good reason to go get that cute set you’ve been eyeing for awhile now! Stop hiding and open up your kitchen!

:: 3 Ways To Give Your Coastal Bathroom An Update ::


Tuesday Tips

Coastal bathrooom with a great diftwood mirrorMake your bathroom your happy place. There’s no reason to be unhappy in or with your bathroom. Seriously, it’s the place where so many good things can and will happen. Mainly we’re talking bath tub love, but that’s a given. It’s easy to forget about the rest of the bathroom and only focus on the tub. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back! We’ve got 3 easy ways to update your bathroom that won’t break the bank or require your to hire a contractor or an interior designer. Read on!

1. Open it up.

Don’t hide anything everything in the bathroom by using traditional cabinets and storage in the bathroom. Leave everything out in the open! It makes it easier for you to grab things when you need them and it helps fight the mess. Stop hiding the mess and take action to prevent it!

2. Don’t forget the towels.

Towels are an easy way to decorate the bathroom and give it a quick punch of style. They can introduce colors and patterns without much work or effort. It’s a great way to try experimental colors or patterns as well. Not everyone is going to be in your bathroom, plus it’s pretty easy and inexpensive.

3. Cover the floor.

Rugs are essential! They give us something soft and warm to plant our toes on while providing another decor element. Use the rug to bring some texture into the space and mix up the feel in the bathroom.
