Coastal decor details on built-in shelvesWe’re loving these built-in shelves! Who doesn’t like more storage? We know we do! We’re always wishing we had more space for all the things in the stores and in our homes. This thought got our brains thinking about extra storage and creative ways to maximize the space we have. So naturally we hit the boards in search of some inspiration and now we’re sharing some of our favorites!

We adore and swoon over these built-ins. They make us kind of – okay they really make us – want to tear into some walls and start a new project. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. Until then we’ll just dream and share some beautiful built-in shelves we have found.

What do you guys think? Are you in need of built in shelves? Share some of your thoughts or favorite built in’s with us! We’d love to see them!Coastal living room with cozy built-in shelves Large coral pieces displayed on built-in shelvesCoastal kids bedroom with built-in shelvesCoastal nook with built-in shelves and seating creating a perfect a space

:: 3 Quick Tips For The Holiday Kitchen ::

Tuesday Tips

Coastal kitchen with plenty of space and natural lightIt’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!Cozy coastal kitchenCountry style kitchen with a cozy feel Rustic inspired details in a kitchen

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

:: Fall Pumpkin Decor Throughout The Home ::

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!
