What’s Trending Wednesday

House Beautiful recently asked their reader’s what their favorite color in each room is and they posted their findings in their September issue. Many of the color choices that are the favorites aren’t too surprising. One we weren’t necessarily shocked about, but surprised it beat out the competition was in the kitchen. Reader’s choice was yellow with white right behind it. We of course coming from our coastal roots won’t be the first to put yellow into the kitchen, but have nothing against it. We like yellow and support it, but of course we have to go with our whites and blues in the kitchen. No offense yellow, it’s a coastal thing. We’ve got some pictures form House Beautiful of some of their favorite yellow kitchens for you. Of course we couldn’t leave out some of our favorite white kitchens so we’ve got some of those for you too. Enjoy!

Tuesday’s Tips From The Pros

Today we’re looking at some beautiful bedrooms. The bedroom is arguably one of the best rooms in the house. We love the kitchen, mostly the food, and of course our family room, but the bedroom will always be at the top. We want to inspire you today with bedrooms we like and design aspects of the bedroom we like. We’re just going to get you warmed up for next week when we show you how to redo your bedroom Tuvalu style. So hopefully you’re still in your bed and getting cozy because we wish we were!

We are envious of this space. It makes us think of driftwood or being out at sea. The tall ceilings with the rustic wood posts shaping the headboard is stunning. Not only is the headboard lined with thick wood posts, but the ceiling is too! What a great and unique idea instead of the typical crown moulding. The side table/nightstand and the wood bench in front of the bed also make great accent pieces without pushing the rustic, wood feel over the top. This is Tuvalu love.

This bedroom feels so light and airy. It’s inviting and looks relaxing. It makes you want to run and jump into the bed and forget about your worries. We also enjoy the symmetry of the room with the night stands and the lamps really bringing that aspect to the room. The rug underneath the bed leading out to the chest is a great way to add a little extra detail to the room. We like that the rug compliments the room and doesn’t stand out or clash what-so-ever. Be careful when choosing a rug that will go underneath your bed. A few things to keep in mind is the amount of space you have, your color scheme and of course quality.

We love anything that hangs, especially beds. These beds are beautiful hanging beds. From the ropes to the pillows, we love it! We like the vertical stripes on the walls as well. It gives the room an even bigger, taller feeling with the already tall feeling that the hanging ropes gave.

This room is all about the color scheme – blue and white. There’s almost too much blue and white in this bedroom, but did you notice the little touches of red in the pillows and the bedding? When you’re trying to stick to a color scheme you want to make sure you don’t go over board. It’s really easy to go over board and when you realize it, it’s usually too late. Keep your color scheme in mind when you’re putting together your bedroom, but don’t forget to bring in another color that will compliment your scheme. That’s not to say that you can’t do a color scheme without going over board. It’s possible, just harder to do.

When it comes to coastal design we all think of beach cottages filled with whites, blues and neutrals; but not all of us have that taste. This room has more pop and brings an eclectic look to the room while still infusing coastal design elements. It brings together bright prints and patterns with accessories to match. Every style is up to your interpretation and that’s how design grows and evolves. Feel free to break the rules and let your true creativity come out.

:: Byzantium Wallcoverings ::

What’s Trending Wednesday

Our buyers shopped the new Schumacher 2012 Spring line styled after their current advertising campaign, mixing old world tile with an unexpected updated modern mosaic.  Byzantium, the legendary and magnificent crossroads connecting east and west, sets the scene for this collection of exquisitely printed wall coverings. Decorative geometrics, graphic borders, and tribal ikats are inspired by elaborately patterned mosaics discovered in the grand palaces of Marrakesh, royal chambers in Istanbul, and archways of Valencia. Jaymi was happy to be a walking advertisement for Schumacher with their Byzantium wallpaper shopping bag in tow.
