:: The Ranch Featured On Forbes ::


ranch-at-laguna-beach-1200x675The Ranch at Laguna Beach is featured on Forbes! And guess who got a little mention? That’s right! Tuvalu Home and our wonderful owner, Laurie Alter, got a nice, little mention in the article.

It reads, “His sister, Laurie Alter, with whom he co-owns the popular Tuvalu Home Environment furnishings store in Laguna Beach (and the wife of Hobie’s son), designed the rooms to have the vibe of a small beach town, including rustic rope chandeliers, patterned tile backsplashes and vintage-looking distressed-leather couches.”

:: Coastal Themed Pumpkin DIY Project ::


Tuesday Tips

coastal-pumpkin-home-decor-craft-mod-podge-themeIf you want to take your pumpkin crafting to the next level, we’ve got just the DIY project for you! We stumbled on this awesome, perfectly coastal themed mod podge DIY project by Crafts by Courtney! She is also responsible for this nautical inspired anchor pumpkin we posted. We love the way she got creative and put her unique twist on a classic fall decor staple. She used a little spray paint, mod podge, scrapbooking paper and, of course, a pumpkin. Check out how she did it on her blog here!

:: Canada Project Updates! 1/8/14 ::


FullSizeRender-5We’re up in Canada working on our latest project and it’s cold! And covered in snow! The snow is new challenge for us Southern California natives because this is the first time we’ve done an install in the snow. It adds a new dynamic to the project, but we love what we’re doing so it can’t stop us! The winter we’re used to is sure different back in California! I think the weather might be getting to Craig! Watch out Wendy!
