What’s Trending Wednesday
We love being outside during summer time and in Southern California we try to find any excuse to get outdoors. That means we’re going to want to get the family outside and enjoy dinner as much as possible. Why wouldn’t we?
It should be no surprise that a summer home trend would be all about outdoor dining. The weather’s right, the food is warm and the good times are plenty. It’s the perfect combination for all to enjoy. Plus it’s an easy way to entertain any guests coming over. Set up shop outside and keep the mess to a minimum and the laughter to a maximum.
We grabbed a couple photos to show you what others are doing outside, but don’t just sit here and wish you could do this! Make it happen and bring your families dinner outdoors tonight!

Set yourself up to enjoy your patio or porch this summer and grab yourself a swing! Don’t miss out on swinging those summer days and nights away!
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!

It’s time to get that patio ready for spring and summer! Make up the lemonade because it’s time to get outside! It’s beautiful out here in Laguna Beach and we’re hoping it’s the same for everyone else no matter where you are! The patio is a great place to chill out, relax and even soak up some vitamin D. Set your patio up with a beautiful outdoor sofa or a set of rocking chairs to rock the day away in.
The patio gives you an excuse to be outside. Who doesn’t want to be outside on a beautiful day? We know we do! Plus once you set up your patio you’ve created an outdoor office if you work from home. Looks like work just got a little better 😉

It’s the season of the kitchen and we’re spending a good chunk of time in our beloved space. When we’re whirling around conducting a spiced filled symphony in our kitchens, we want to make sure all is in harmony and on cue. There’s no need to make your life more difficult, that’s why we’ve come up with these 3 quick tips to get your kitchen ready for the holidays. Get those aprons ready, heat up those ovens and get ready for the holiday season!
1. Cut The Clutter
If it doesn’t need to be in the kitchen get rid of it. Seriously, the last thing we need is to be tripping over things or frantically searching for counter space. The holidays are stressful enough, the last thing we need to add to it is mess and clutter.
2. Check The Kitchen Tools
Is everything good to go? Are those whisks still, well, whisky? Make sure the wine is ready while you’re at it. Do those pots and pans have another season in them? Are those mixers still mixing? Check and make sure everything you need is actually going to work. We don’t want a meltdown while that souffle is melting down.
3. Carry A Stockpile
We’re not saying you need all Costco this holiday season, but you definitely want to make sure you have plenty of goods. Running out mid-meal to grab ingredients is completely avoidable these holidays. Also the holidays are always faster and demand more time for everything. That being said, make sure you have some quick, healthy and easy meals ready to go.
Got all that ladies and gentlemen? There’s no reason these holidays shouldn’t go smooth and be successful. Tuvalu wants to help you guys out, but much more importantly, we want you guys to enjoy yourselves over the holidays. Happy cooking!
It’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.
