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!

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.

Tuesday Tips

Dining room decorated with warm, natural tonesHave you enter a space and instantly felt comfortable? Felt at home? Do you ever wonder how a designer does that? Well, to be honest, there’s not just one single way to accomplish that feeling. There are actually many different ways. But let’s narrow down and focus in on one way you can accomplish this feeling in your home. If you haven’t guessed by the title of this post, “Decorate With Natural Tones”, then boy do we have surprise for you!

That’s right! Use natural tones to create a feeling of warm and cozy comfort. Warm tones create a sense of peace and familiarity. They welcome you with open arms and bring joy. Think about golden hour and how the sunset creates a tone of magical light. On the other side, blue tones are regarded as cold and sometimes lifeless. Think sterile, crime show morgue and you can feel how cold and empty the space is. These quick examples show how powerful tones can be in design. They can hit you subconsciously and transform your mood without you even realizing.

Once you realize that the tones throughout your home play a very powerful role, you can use them to decorate. Natural and neutral tones can help create a relaxed feeling and look in the home. It puts you at ease and is easy on the eyes, unlike a bright and colorful home that can bombard your visual sense (no offense to overly colorful homes, we applaud your bold decor). That’s not to say that colors don’t play a role because they can certain play a part in the show. Just apply subtly throughout and use the idea of less is more.

If you want a quick and easy visual reference to what we are talking about, look no further. We’ve grabbed a couple beautifully designed spaces that use natural and neutral tones that evoke the warm sense of welcome. Take a look, catch a feel and let it help transform your design abilities.
