Coastal living room with a cottage feelHave you thought about bringing a little pouf into your life? More importantly, into your home? These floor pillows are the perfect accessory for any family room or living room. They add a fun design element and double as a little extra seating. Who wouldn’t mind that? They’re especially great for all those entertainers out there!

In design, it’s the little things that count and a pouf can be used as a great accent in any space. They can add texture, color, or even act as a little extra filler in a large room. Tight on space or budget? No problem! These little guys are what you’re looking for! And when they’ve served their purpose or are no longer needed, you just pick up and move them out. Take a look at the poufs used these photos! They look great right??

What’s Trending Wednesday

Coastal decorated bookcase with a marble inlufenced wallpaper inlayWallpaper’s not limited to the walls anymore. We love a good wallpaper and love it even more when it’s done right (as you’ll see below), but lately designers and creatives are pushing the potential for wallpaper. They’re using it creatively on the walls and putting in places that we should have been using it a long time ago, but for some reason we haven’t. Thanks to the internet – let’s be honest, Pinterest – people are sharing their creative ideas and uses of wallpaper which gets the wheels turning for everyone else. Finding new and exciting places to slap that wallpaper is pushing decor, design and style to another level and we love it.

Check out some of these creative wallpaper ideas we’ve put in this post. Our favorite has to be the the picture right below this text. Look at the fireplace, that’s Ralph Lauren’s black Yacare Crocodile wallpaper on the chimney breast. We absolutely love that idea and placement. It definitely gets some ideas going in our heads.

What do you guys think? Are you a fan? Also, what are some creative wallpaper ideas you’ve seen? Don’t behind afraid to drop us a line, we’d love to hear from you guys!

:: Coastal Kitchens – Metal Adjustable Stools ::

Tuesday Tips

A clean, coastal kitchen with round wood top, metal base adjustable stoolsDo you get excited when you walk into your kitchen? If you don’t, we think we may have a solution to your problem. Take a look at metal, adjustable bar stools. These bar stools are perfect for the kitchen island or bar. They have a great look that adds more texture, style and seating options to the kitchen space.

These stool are often seen with a round wood top and metal base, but you can find all metal ones if you’re going for that look instead. The fact that the stool is adjustable also adds a huge perk to its design. This ability allows you to get the perfect height for your island or bar which can really make or break a stool. Not the right height? No problem, adjust until it is!

Browse these photos we’ve added to this post and get a feel for what we’re talking about! See how these designers have used metal adjustable stools in the kitchen and get inspired!

:: Decorate That Coastal Staircase ::

What’s Trending Wednesday

coastal living coastal staircase home built in storage stairsThe staircase, like the bathroom, can often be overlooked and forgotten. Don’t waste that space! It can be a tricky space because it’s not the easiest to design. You mostly have walls, a small shelf space of sorts and a little floor space at the bottom to work with, but that’s okay! A lot can be done in that small amount of space! There’s no need to limit yourself. Plus we can’t forget about the stairs themselves. We can use stair runners, wood or even tiles to decorate them giving us even more options.

Check out some of these staircases to find out what other people/designers are doing and to get some inspiration! Apply what you like to your home.

:: Coastal Home Decor In The Bathroom ::

Tuesday Tips

Coastal bathroom with a reclaimed wood counter topThe bathroom is an easy place to overlook and a great place to decorate. It’s easy because you can decorate it by simply hanging a picture or you can go all out and gut the space to install your dream bathroom. The sky is the limit! Well, actually, the space is the limit. You are very limited in what you can practically do in a bathroom, but that’s a plus!

The small space instantly changes the rules of the game. Because most bathrooms are small (we say most because not all bathrooms are created equal), it means creativity and clever design are key. You need to determine function over fashion, meaning do you want it to look good or do you want it to be a useful bathroom?

Most people want a functional bathroom for obviously reasons, but a guest bathroom gives you more options to play with. The guest bathroom gives you and your guests a place to take care of business and get out. We aren’t lounging in the tub or enjoying the walk in shower with a rain drop shower head – we’re in and we’re out. That means you can install a floating, reclaimed wood sink that has the minimal necessities to wash up and move on.

A large, spacious master bathroom gives you all the options you can ever think of and all the options your contractor can charge you for as well. We’ll let your imaginations take this one, it shouldn’t be that hard. In case you are lacking inspiration, we have a couple images of bathrooms we’re enjoying. We have picked out bathrooms that range from simple to dream bathroom to help you realize you’re missing out on a great design opportunity if you’re not decorating your bathroom.
