Tuesday Tips

Coastal bedroom with lots of cozy pillowsNever under estimate the power of pillows. They have the ability to completely change the look the room, effortlessly blend in and be the final touch needed for the space. In a coastal home, pillows can really bring out your design style and decor. A coastal home isn’t about dramatic furniture or hard lines that define the space. It’s all about the light, airy feel which leaves you the option of using your pillows for more than just a comfy place to rest your head. We’ve got a quick list for you guys on three simple ways to maximize the use of your pillows! And when you’re done with one set, all you have to do is pick them up and plop the new ones down! It’s that easy! Now onto the list!

1. Use them to compliment the decor

Are you in love with the way your space came out? Perfect! Let’s add the finishing touches, the pillows. You can use pillows to carry your design throughout the space without them taking away from, or distracting from, the rest of the decor. You usually see this in an all white space or a space with a neutral palette. That doesn’t mean it can’t be used in spaces that use color in the design though!

2. Use them to add color and patterns.

Pillows are one the easiest and best ways to add color to any space! They do not require a paint brush or clean up. Pick out some fun pillows to add pops of color to the space and watch them bring life to the room. The same goes with any colorful or fun patterned pillows. They will liven up the space and leave you happy with your design choices!

3. Use them to add texture and depth

A few pillows on a sofa can be very versatile. They can break up the solid colors you may have as while as give the space a deeper, fuller look. You can achieve this by pairing pillows (such as the blue ikat patterned ones on top of the solid white ones above). It gives depth and character to an area of the space that could easily be overlooked. It also shows your attention to detail and that you loved designing your home.Coastal living room with lots of natural light and indigo dyed pillowsFun patterns in a coasta living roomLiving room with textured, white pillows in an eclectic coastal homeCoastal living room with ikat print pillows on the sofa

Tuesday Tips

Bright, well lit coastal stariwayIt’s time to breath new life into the stairs you walk up and down each day! There’s no reason not to love your stairs, so we put together this tips post to help you guys out and give you some inspiration! We’ve got three ways you can update your stairs and enjoy walking up and down your stairs. Check it out!

1. Get Your Paintbrush Ready!

A little paint can go a long way on your stairs. There are plenty of options for painting your stairs. You can paint them one solid color, multiple colors, paint patterns, or even paint scenes on them. It all depends on the look you’re going for. And when you want to change it up again, no problem! Just pick your new paint colors and start painting.

2. Time To Start Running!

A stair runner can add more than just a new look to your stairs. It can bring style, color and purpose. You can use a stair runner to bring the upstairs and downstairs decor together and keep the flow going from space to space. It will also help fight against wear if your stairs are going to get a constant beating.

3. Keep It Natural!

Not into wood stairs or stair runners? Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about you! Natural stones and tiles can bring a new look and style into your home. You can also paint your tile to give your stairs a unique look. These materials can be used inside or outside and are built to last.

* Bonus Tip – Ditch The Typical Banister *

If you really want to change up your stairs and give them a whole new look then it’s time to try something new. Get rid of your original banister and run some thick rope instead. This nautical accessory will give your stairs the complete coastal look and leave you loving your stairs.Coastal cottage with a painted staircase Coastal entry with stairs covered in tile to match the decor hues Coastal staircase with a jute rug runner Coastal staircase with nautical ropes as handrails
