Blue coastal cottage patio creating the perfect outdoor spaceWelcome spring to your home with a little color. Use color to take your home away from the dull winter season and move it into a warmer direction. It’s time to use yellows, blues and other fun spring time colors to pump up those coastal vibes!

If you struggle with picking out what colors to design and decorate with, turn to the flowers. Think of all the beautiful flowers that come to life during spring and your color inspiration will be overwhelming. If for reason that doesn’t get your color juices flowing, think blue hues. Honestly, in a coastal home you can never go wrong with blue. Sure, it’s been done a million times, but why do you think people keep doing it?

Check out how these designers used colors to decorate these homes. Get inspired to get you and your home ready for spring, warmer days and beautiful colors!

:: 3 Easy Ways To Update Your Bathroom ::

Tuesday Tips

Coastal bathroom decorated with stripesMake your bathroom your happy place. There’s no reason to be unhappy in or with your bathroom. Seriously, it’s the place where so many good things can and will happen. Mainly we’re talking bath tub love, but that’s a given. It’s easy to forget about the rest of the bathroom and only focus on the tub. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back! We’ve got 3 easy ways to update your bathroom that won’t break the bank or require your to hire a contractor or an interior designer. Read on!

1. Open it up.

Don’t hide anything everything in the bathroom by using traditional cabinets and storage in the bathroom. Leave everything out in the open! It makes it easier for you to grab things when you need them and it helps fight the mess. Stop hiding the mess and take action to prevent it!

2. Don’t forget the towels.

Towels are an easy way to decorate the bathroom and give it a quick punch of style. They can introduce colors and patterns without much work or effort. It’s a great way to try experimental colors or patterns as well. Not everyone is going to be in your bathroom, plus it’s pretty easy and inexpensive.

3. Cover the floor.

Rugs are essential! They give us something soft and warm to plant our toes on while providing another decor element. Use the rug to bring some texture into the space and mix up the feel in the bathroom.

Large bathtub in a bright, naturally lit bathroomWe love baths. We like really, really, really love baths. Then again, who doesn’t? Think about how amazing it is to come home after a long day and soak in a nice, hot tub. It sounds heavenly. And what would make this experience even better? A big, inviting bathtub. It’t just you, a glass of wine and nothing but peace and quiet.

We believe that every person, man and woman, deserves a nice relaxing bath.

That’s why today we found some of our favorite bathtubs and posted them just for you guys. We aren’t trying to create bathtub lust or envy, but it may happen. Sorry about that! Enjoy these tubs and hopefully you can enjoy yours today or later tonight!

Tuesday Tips

A tropical inspired living room with fun wall artYou can never have enough art in your home. Art can be as abstract and crazy as you want or it can flat out say exactly what you want it to. Why beat around the bush?

Use art to say what’s on your mind! We tend to see signs and art in coastal homes that say something about the beach or the beautiful beach city they are located in (Shout out to Laguna Beach!) and we love that. We love it because that’s something you don’t see in other home decor styles. You might find a Victorian style home with a sign that says, “God Save The Queen,” but that’s probably it. Chances are you won’t find a sign that says, “Hello Gorgeous.”

Have fun with the art and signs you place around your home. Take a look at how these spaces are saying something with the art. If you want to bring more art into your home, check out what we call ‘the written word’ section on the Tuvalu Home online store here!
