Coastal living room decorated with pastel colorsIt’s time to start thinking about spring colors! There are plenty of options in the yellow and blue realm of hues, but why not expand into something different this spring? Try decorating with pastel colors to mix it up!

Pastels are a classic spring look! Plus they look like, well, spring time! Pastel colors are a great way to step away from the bright or bold colors of spring and give you a chance to take it easy on the eyes. The muted pastel colors are easy to mix into your existing decor too. Most of them will just replace anything bright or simply be added to the existing decor.

For example, if you’re lucky enough to have a neutral color palette, you can add a few pastel colored accessories and you’ve got your spring decorating started. What’s that? You don’t have the ridiculously convenient and easy to style example we just mentioned to further our blog post agenda in your home? Well that’s okay! Because we do have these images of pastel decorated and designed spaces for you to look at. We love what these designers have done and hopefully you do too! Get inspired for spring! Pastel colors in the kitchen Muted, pastel colors in a cottage style living room pastel blue painted coastal front door Pastel colors in a coastal living room

:: 3 Quick Tips To Spring Your Patio Back To Life ::

Tuesday Tips

Kick back with the pup on this cozy coastal patioSpring is right around the corner and it’s been heating up here in Southern California! The last couple of days have been nice and hopefully it’s been the same for your area as well. Looks like a quick day of rain, but then we’re  back to the good weather!

Not sure about you, but we’re all ready to be outside in the sun. When the time comes, we want to maximize our patio with as much comfort and style as we can. That’s why we have 3 quick tips for your spring patio! Get your patio ready for the weather and sun with these tips!

1. Use Colors.

Don’t be afraid to use a little color outside! Sure the spring flowers show bring lots of color, but do the flowers match your interior’s color palette? Or do you want the outside to start a fresh, new palette for your patio space! There’s no need to shy away from colors! Let the hues jump out and shine like they’re meant to in spring!

2. Use Different Types of Materials.

The tip’s title pretty much says it all. Don’t limit yourself to only one type of material on your patio. There are a ton of natural materials that work great outdoors and even plenty of ‘indoor’ materials that work well outside in the weather. They just might need to be pulled in from time to time.

3. Use Plants & Flowers.

This one is a no brainer! Bring some lush, green plants onto the patio space and really feel surrounded by the outdoors. Like we mentioned above, the flowers are strangers to color so use them to brighten up your patio! Make them the standout decor in your patio space!

:: 3 Easy Ways To Update Your Bathroom ::

Tuesday Tips

Coastal bathroom decorated with stripesMake 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.

Tuesday Tips

A tropical inspired living room with fun wall artYou can never have enough art in your home. Art can be as abstract and crazy as you want or it can flat out say exactly what you want it to. Why beat around the bush?

Use art to say what’s on your mind! We tend to see signs and art in coastal homes that say something about the beach or the beautiful beach city they are located in (Shout out to Laguna Beach!) and we love that. We love it because that’s something you don’t see in other home decor styles. You might find a Victorian style home with a sign that says, “God Save The Queen,” but that’s probably it. Chances are you won’t find a sign that says, “Hello Gorgeous.”

Have fun with the art and signs you place around your home. Take a look at how these spaces are saying something with the art. If you want to bring more art into your home, check out what we call ‘the written word’ section on the Tuvalu Home online store here!
