tuvalu-hobie-cabana-4 The Hobie and Tuvalu bungalow is voted the favorite! All of the invited guests voted between the five bungalows designed by Billabong, Fox Head Inc., The Sleepy Hollow Group, gorjana & griffin and, yours truly, Hobie and Tuvalu. We absolutely loved how our bungalow came out and are very pleased that Pacific Edge Hotel’s guests get to enjoy it! We owe it all to our designers Laurie Alter and Wendy Grand Pre who did an amazing job reviving the bungalow and giving it new life!

We have all of our photos of the cabana we designed for the event up in our portfolio section! We have a few before and afters above, but see the rest of them here! We love the way our cabana turned out! For this project we teamed up with Hobie and used this space to show the history of Hobie and the surf and skate culture that it fueled. Our Tuvalu designers, Laurie Alter and Wendy Grand Pre, did such an amazing job incorporating these aspects into the design while still showing the beautiful, coastal Tuvalu Home style. We hope you enjoy More pictures here!

:: Coastal Living’s Ultimate Beach House 2012 ::

Standard

What’s Trending Wednesday


Coastal Living has designed their Ultimate Beach House of 2012. This year it’s a beautiful home in located in Panama City Beach, Florida. This house is refreshing and done very clean. Not like clean or dirty, but very clean lines and clean design. They decided to go with a simple, almost minimalist decor approach. The design style of Erika Powell from Urban Grace really shows in the design of the space. Some of the rooms have an almost modern look to them, but coastal elements keep it teetering on the edge of both styles. Other rooms look like they came straight out of every woman’s coastal dream home. Each space is very simple. No overdone or unnecessary pieces are carelessly or thoughtlessly slapped into the space. Each room is well thought out and planned.

The general color scheme of the house is hues of green offset with a neutral palette. There are some rooms, like the game room below and part of the kitchen (not pictured), that have the good old fashioned hue of coastal blue, but for the most part the home is centered around hues of green. It’s always fun and interesting to see homes that use different colors instead of the beloved blues. Overall this house is amazing and done very well. I can’t believe it took us this long to actually say something about it! What do you guys think? Love it? Hate it? Let us know in the comments or drop us on line on twitter! Tweet us @tuvaluhome. Check out the home in it’s entirety on CL’s site here.

:: Neutral Spaces With Pops Of Color ::

What’s Trending Wednesday

Neutral home decor with pops of purple accenting the space
A fun trend that we’ve seen people decorating with lately is livening up their neutral spaces with pops of color. This is a great way to bring new life to an old room or a space that has been designed with a neutral color palette. It leaves you with so many decor options and gives you a chance to bring fun and bright accent colors to the space. You can choose to decorate with big or small pops of color, like a bright sofa or even colored lamps. The choice is yours! Have fun with the new pops of color you choose to add to your space!
