:: Make The Mirror Work For You In Your Home ::

Tuesday Tips

Bright coastal chic space with a large mirrorMirrors can be your best friend or the thing you hate most. It all depends on your mood and mainly what you see in the reflection. However, mirrors that are used for decorating purposes will always be your best friend. They can add light to the space and make small spaces appear larger. If you have a small space to work with, or your home is smaller, you can make the space look bigger with mirrors. It will open the room up and make it feel brighter and larger.

By putting a mirror opposite a window or a set of windows it will bring more light into the space. It also helps to get a little scientific. You’ll want to know where the sun shines through into your home. You don’t want those mirrors turning into reflectors that constantly blind you. That will bring unwanted light into the space and make you wish you didn’t have those beautiful mirrors.

You can also put those mirror to work. Hang them opposite your favorite piece of art and have the mirror reflect the art. This will draw more attention to it and truly make it the center of the room.

Mirrors can be fun and very useful. Get started on your mirror search by coming into one of the stores or get started online at Tuvalu HomeCoastal entryway with a large octogon shaped mirror Large drift wood mirror adding a rustic beach vibe

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.

What’s Trending Wednesday

Coastal beach house with built in bunk bedsSpace, space, space! We all want more of it. Whether it’s just an extra cabinet here or another bedroom and a yard there, a little more space never hurt anyone. Unfortunately, it’s just not that easy which means we have to make the best out of what space we do have.

A smaller, or less desired, amount of space doesn’t limit design as much as you might think. When you are forced to get creative in a small space you tend to focus on what matters. In small spaces, it’s all about function.

A room designed with function in mind will transform it into a flowing, livable space. Strip down the design and decor to the bare essentials. When you keep it simple with the essentials you can start to build up the space or keep it simple.

Check out how these designers have used decor in smaller spaces and focused on the needs, not the wants.
