:: Texture Details With Woven Pieces ::

What’s Trending Wednesday

Coastal kitchen and dining area with woven chairs, white pendant lamp and striped rugIt’s time to get your weave on! Woven furniture and accessories are a great way to bring some coastal cottage feels to any space. They’re light on the eyes because they don’t have a bulky or solid look. We associate the look of rattan with a laid back, cottage feel that has the opposite effect of hard lines.

Woven pieces also bring a nice bit of texture to the space. This adds more visual depth while not having to add extra decor. Another big plus about woven pieces is that they also come in every shape and size. You can get almost anything from a woven rattan chair to the classic woven jute basket. You can go wild with woven pieces! Not recommended though, you don’t need an entire house filled with woven furniture and accessories. Think of them as accent pieces.

Check out what these designers have done with woven pieces in their space! Get inspired and then get your woven goods!

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

:: Create The Perfect Coastal Entryway ::

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.

:: Use The Walls To Display Your Collection ::

Tuesday Tips

Vintage swimsuits displayed on the wall of a coastal homePeople are naturally collectors. Sometimes it’s intentional and other times, well, life gets in the way and we forget to throw things away. When we decide on something to collector it seems like that’s all we want. We’re officially on the hunt! After a healthy amount of rummaging through flea markets, antique stores and garage sale, you finally amass a  collection worthy of showing. How are you going to display the collection you worked so hard to find?

We have a suggestion, head to the walls! Walls are a great way to display your collections! They give us plenty of space to show off our finds. Plus they provide extra room for you to add to your collection because let’s be honest, it never stops growing.

Get fancy with the collection and frame it! Frames are a great way to display the collection on the wall and let people know you’re proud of your hard work. Unfortunately, not all of our collections are framable, and that’s fine. Another way is to invest in wall shelves and prop your collection up for all to see. It lets you open up the space for other decor and design elements.

Using the walls helps you make the most of the space in your home and prevents the over cluttering of side consoles or tables. So head to the walls and start displaying your collection today!
