We pop into the store and it’s on the shelf waiting for us. It’s easy and accessible, something we crave relentlessly in the 21st century. Then there’s the other side of decorating. The hunting and collecting of vintage pieces for the home. The search can take a long time when you’re looking for something specific in the color or condition. Other times, you’re open to anything and the piece jumps right off the shelf.

Tuesday Tips

Coastal living room full of fun patterns with a blue and white color paletteThe living room is one of the most important rooms in the home. It’s ranks right behind the kitchen and we’re sure if it was possible to merge the two without it looking/being weird it would be done in every home. With such importance put on this room, why would you not try to make it the best possible? Make it the best for function, the best in design and the best in decor. Today we’ve got 3 quick tips on living room furniture to help you with just that! So without further adieu, here they are!

1. Space, space, space. 

Space is a very important part of the living room. How much? How little? What measurements? Where will this fit? Will this fit? Does it scale? Not only is it important to make sure your furniture will actually fit, but it’s equally important to figure out where you will have empty space. There’s no need to cram as much as you can into the living room. Make sure the room has some space to breathe and allow for everyone to move around the room comfortably.

2. Invest in the future.

There’s a classic saying that goes, “You get what you pay for.” This is especially true when it comes furniture. Your furniture is going to take a beating. Maybe you won’t have kids and animals running and jumping all over it, or maybe you will, but your furniture still takes a good amount of abuse. So make sure you don’t cheat yourself by trying to take a cheap route!

3. Like the seasons, colors change.

A color palette can change with the blink of an eye. Imagine walking into a new space and you’re instantly inspired. It makes you think about your colors and what you want to change. This is why you should decide on your furniture colors last. Get an idea of what type of furniture or how you want it to look and go from there. Go bright and bold or monochromatic, it’s pretty common for furniture to come in a multitude of colors and patterns these days so that should’t be too much of a problem. If not, it’s time to get DIY and now that piece has become personal as well as custom.

Tuesday’s Tips From The Pros

Today we show you how to bring the Tuvalu feel to your living room with a little rustic coastal love. We love blending styles and creating beautiful spaces with a fresh new look. This gives you the ability to pull from more than one style and create a unique, one of kind space. We love coastal and rustic decor together because they blend so seamlessly. Over time any cute beach cottage is going to get that natural wear and tear from the ocean. So why not capitalize on that and run with the design style that naturally occurs on its own? Exactly! Plus no one wants coastal decor overkill. Starfish and mermaids can only be used so many times. Bringing in other styles and design elements eliminates the repetition and excessive, overdone feeling of just one style. You don’t need to have an equal amount of pieces from each style. Some times it only takes one piece, like a side table or chair, to bring a different style to the space. So ladies, mix it up and bring in another style or multiple styles if you want!
