Tuesday Tips

Bright rustic dining space decorated with holiday decorIt’s time to start breaking out the winter and holiday decor if you haven’t already. Halloween has officially ended so you’re in the clear. Since Thanksgiving is still coming, we won’t go full Christmas mode yet. We’ll just ease into it and start setting the mood for winter and holiday decor.

Whether it’s bright winter berries scattered about on the table or even a couple strands of garland can be the perfect holiday touch in your home. There’s no need to go above and beyond when it comes to decorating your home during the holidays. We aren’t saying that you should just put a few pine leaves out and call it a day, but there’s no need for all the mini Christmas village scenes or several nativity scenes throughout the home either – put that on hold for now. We are just warming up for the holiday season.

Hopefully some of these images bring you some inspiration and new ideas on how to keep it simple before you go full holiday mode on your home. Holiday wreath in the kitchen Minimal holiday touches throughout the home Simple holiday exterior decor

What’s Trending Wednesday

Fall table decor with wheat grass and white pumpkinsFall is the perfect time to decorate the home with pumpkins! We especially love the look that white pumpkins offer and how they can add a little festive fall cheer. The white hue of the pumpkins is easy to match or accent any color palette in any home. If they weren’t seasonal we’re sure some people would use them to decorate year-round because they look so cute!

Browsing around the internet and Pinterest we have seen a bunch of fun and festive fall decor ideas using pumpkins. Besides using white pumpkins, we love the look of using multiple hues (as seen in the fireplace below). It creates an interesting and eye catching display and is completely fall.

Take a look these photos and see how these people have used pumpkins to decorate with fall in their homes!

Blue painted pumpkins laid out on the mantleIt’s always a fun time when fall starts to come. The leaves change colors and it means the holidays are just around the corner. We get to have fun with Halloween, test our cooking skills during Thanksgiving and then spread joy and happiness with Christmas. Fall also brings us all the fun fall decor and gives us a chance to decorate our homes with it.

Pumpkins are great for easy Halloween decor and can remain for festive fall Thanksgiving decor. Pumpkins also make an easy center piece for the dining table. Grab a few small pumpkins and some fall foliage to craft a beautiful tables cape for you and your family. You can even decorate the mantle with them and create scenic fall scenes in your home. Get inspired to bring the fall decor into your home and check out how these designers have embraced fall and pumpkins into their homes.

:: Make The Mirror Work For You In Your Home ::

Tuesday Tips

Bright coastal chic space with a large mirrorMirrors can be your best friend or the thing you hate most. It all depends on your mood and mainly what you see in the reflection. However, mirrors that are used for decorating purposes will always be your best friend. They can add light to the space and make small spaces appear larger. If you have a small space to work with, or your home is smaller, you can make the space look bigger with mirrors. It will open the room up and make it feel brighter and larger.

By putting a mirror opposite a window or a set of windows it will bring more light into the space. It also helps to get a little scientific. You’ll want to know where the sun shines through into your home. You don’t want those mirrors turning into reflectors that constantly blind you. That will bring unwanted light into the space and make you wish you didn’t have those beautiful mirrors.

You can also put those mirror to work. Hang them opposite your favorite piece of art and have the mirror reflect the art. This will draw more attention to it and truly make it the center of the room.

Mirrors can be fun and very useful. Get started on your mirror search by coming into one of the stores or get started online at Tuvalu HomeCoastal entryway with a large octogon shaped mirror Large drift wood mirror adding a rustic beach vibe

:: Create The Perfect Coastal Entryway ::

Tuesday Tips

Coastal entryway with a cottage feel and lots of natural lightsRight when you swing open the front door to your home the first thing you see is your entryway. You see your side console that gives you a quick place to unload and compose yourself before moving forward through to the rest of your home. You see the art and accessories you used decorate the console. You see your home.

Your entryway sets the expectations and tone for the rest of the home. It’s the first thing anyone and everyone will see when they enter your home. Every more reason to decorate to impress. Putting a little time into your entry will leave you thanking yourself over and over.

One tip before we’re done here, create a simple and minimal entryway. There are two very good reasons as to why. First, it looks good. Pretty straight forward and easy to do. Second, the actual reason, if there is a small amount of space it deters you and the family from making it the “drop zone”. You know, the area that gathers everyone’s stuff, is never clean and always a mess. Let’s skip all that by not allowing the space to be used like that.

Last, but not least, here’s a little coastal entry home decor inspiration. Take a look at these homes and what these owners are greeted with when they come home.
