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

:: Make The Mirror Work For You In Your Home ::

Tuesday Tips

Bright coastal chic space with a large mirrorMirrors can be your best friend or the thing you hate most. It all depends on your mood and mainly what you see in the reflection. However, mirrors that are used for decorating purposes will always be your best friend. They can add light to the space and make small spaces appear larger. If you have a small space to work with, or your home is smaller, you can make the space look bigger with mirrors. It will open the room up and make it feel brighter and larger.

By putting a mirror opposite a window or a set of windows it will bring more light into the space. It also helps to get a little scientific. You’ll want to know where the sun shines through into your home. You don’t want those mirrors turning into reflectors that constantly blind you. That will bring unwanted light into the space and make you wish you didn’t have those beautiful mirrors.

You can also put those mirror to work. Hang them opposite your favorite piece of art and have the mirror reflect the art. This will draw more attention to it and truly make it the center of the room.

Mirrors can be fun and very useful. Get started on your mirror search by coming into one of the stores or get started online at Tuvalu HomeCoastal entryway with a large octogon shaped mirror Large drift wood mirror adding a rustic beach vibe

:: Create The Perfect Coastal Entryway ::

Standard

Tuesday Tips

Coastal entryway with a cottage feel and lots of natural lightsRight when you swing open the front door to your home the first thing you see is your entryway. You see your side console that gives you a quick place to unload and compose yourself before moving forward through to the rest of your home. You see the art and accessories you used decorate the console. You see your home.

Your entryway sets the expectations and tone for the rest of the home. It’s the first thing anyone and everyone will see when they enter your home. Every more reason to decorate to impress. Putting a little time into your entry will leave you thanking yourself over and over.

One tip before we’re done here, create a simple and minimal entryway. There are two very good reasons as to why. First, it looks good. Pretty straight forward and easy to do. Second, the actual reason, if there is a small amount of space it deters you and the family from making it the “drop zone”. You know, the area that gathers everyone’s stuff, is never clean and always a mess. Let’s skip all that by not allowing the space to be used like that.

Last, but not least, here’s a little coastal entry home decor inspiration. Take a look at these homes and what these owners are greeted with when they come home.

What’s Trending Wednesday

Bamboo furniture in a tropical inspired homeBamboo decor is no stranger to coastal style and can be found in almost every beach cottage. It’s no surprise to see designers using bamboo in a space and getting in touch with their coastal roots. Bamboo brings a beachy vibe to any space and definitely lets that person know exactly what kind of home they’re in. Plus it can come in any color. Painted bamboo has really opened up the design options and lets us go wild! We love the look of bamboo and it will always be a coastal home classic.

What are your thoughts on bamboo? Do you use it in your home? Or have you guys moved onto to something new? Let us know! And don’t forget to enjoy these beautiful spaces these designers have put together using bamboo!
