Our Thursday Tuva-Luv this week is brought to us by Liz! One of her store favorites is the roost napa candelabra. The roost napa candelabra is locally made by a Napa Valley craftsman from noble old grape vines and fitted with sand-cast recycled aluminum holders for five tealights or small votives. A beautiful gnarled piece of grapevine wood adds a warm touch to any room. The Napa Candelabra will be the center of attention on any table display. Twisted and elegant, no two pieces are exactly the same. Find the roost napa candelabra online at Tuvalu Home!
This week’s Tuva-Luv is brought to us by Stephanie! One of her Tuva-Luvs is the white tealight holder with gold trim set! These tea light holders are hand thrown, white glazed ceramic bowls detailed with gold trim that add an organic element to the piece. Give your candles a proper home with the white tealight holder set. Use this cute set to decorate in the bedroom or in the bathroom when you’re taking a relaxing bath. Find the white tealight holder with gold trim set on our online store here!

It seems quite obvious to add candles to the table this coming Thanksgiving, but you’d be surprised how the simple things get lost in the shuffle. Candles can play two roles on the table. They can add style to the table as well as bring a functional use. You can have cute candle sticks sitting on top of beautiful candle holders that also provide extra light for the table and your guests. Basically it’s a table must have, especially if you’re looking to fill small holes in the table decor. One thing that you should definitely remember when it comes to using candles for the table–go unscented. There will already be plenty of delicious foods for all the noses to enjoy. If you are looking to add some candlelight to your table this holiday season, you can shop for candles and candle accessories on our online store here!

Take advantage of that outdoor space that’s been given to you! Whether it’s in the front or back of your home you can maximize your home and space with proper design. Do you have a deck, patio, porch, or free space in the backyard? Whatever it may be it’s time to use it. First things first you need some type of furniture. This creates a place for everyone to gather around. Next is a table of some sort. This way if you want to bring food or drinks out you can. Plus now you have something to decorate and a place for decor. Now it’s time for the rug. A nice indoor/outdoor or just outdoor rug will really define the space. It will turn your random furniture sitting outside into a real outdoor space waiting to be used. Bring on the accessories! Time to really make your outdoor space look like another room in the house. The best and obvious choice for outdoor decor – candles. They are a must have for any outdoor space. The rest is up to you. Want to bring out some fun glass jugs or coasters? Do it! Hopefully it will cool down around here and we can actually go outside and enjoy it for a change. Is it fall yet?

Now we don’t mean to gossip, but we can’t hold it in any longer! Did you hear? None other than Martha Stewart herself visited our store last week! Yup. Right here in little ol’ Laguna Beach.
We gracefully resided in star-struck awe for
mere moments. Ok, we held our breath till she left, all while helping her buy a few great items with the largest silly grin of pure happiness on our faces!
Martha and a female friend circled the store for quite a while, studying everything high and low. They both were nicely dressed and effortlessly coiffed, as Martha always seems to be. Surprisingly she even wore stilettos on their shopping trip – a modest height but a fun and fancy touch for business attire. Have we told you lately, Martha? You look gooood!!
They took photos here and there of the store and even posted about our Arte Italica and Sea Fan art on her blog. That’s right Tuvalu Home is featured on Martha’s blog! Well ok, we make a cameo appearance in photos 2 and 5. And she may only mention another store from down the street. But hey, we aren’t complaining – we got to meet Martha! And maybe someone over there reads our blog and will catch the omission? Maybe!?
Make sure see the pics of our store and to read more about her stay at the Montage on Martha’s blog.
But before you go, peek inside Martha’s shopping bag and see what she bought at Tuvalu in the pictures below!
