Coastal cottage with a beautiful bookshelfTake advantage of your bookshelf! Use it as a creative way to not only display coastal accessories, but books as well. It’s nothing new that books can be used as decor. A well placed coffee table book can lend a great decorative hand to a coastal living room. That doesn’t mean a well thought out and designed bookshelf can’t do the same. The days of boring books on your bookshelf are over! There’s no reason you shouldn’t take advantage of that prime design space. Bring style with the books by placing them vertical or laying them horizontal to mix up the look on the shelf. Lean books to give your bookshelf a break from the routine too. You can even plan out your bookshelf and take it a step further by creating a color scheme throughout the shelf (pictured below).

Have fun and be creative with the space you have in your coastal home. If you look at your bookshelf and inspiration isn’t sparking creative ideas then look at these photos. See what these designers have done and how they have decorated these bookshelves. Get inspired and create a stunning coastal bookshelf you can be proud of!

Tuesday Tips

Modern coastal living room with unique furnitureA good coffee table can set the tone and feel for any living room. It gives the space a spark while letting people know you’re not afraid to get creative and flex your design muscles. A living room is typically formed with a sofa, a chair of sorts, a side table or two, a rug and a coffee table. And usually they’re all arranged so that the coffee table is in the center. We say usually because we have seen a few interesting living room arrangements, but everyone has their style and that’s what keeps design fun. If you want more ideas on the living room then head over and take a look at these living room furniture tips.

Since the coffee table is in the center why not start there? Think of it as a center piece. Center pieces aren’t meant to be boring or plain. So why should your coffee table? Use it to start with a bang and ride that momentum throughout the space’s design and decor. Check out some of this unique coffee tables thats really stand out and drive home the coastal style. These designers didn’t limit themselves to basic coffee tables and it really shows in these spaces.

:: 3 Ways To Accent Your Home With Color ::

Standard

Tuesday Tips

Beautiful Coastal living room with deep-blue accent painted wallsUsing color to accent walls and spaces is a great technique that anyone can use throughout their home. Step one is deciding what color you want to accent or highlight the space with. When you’re picking out the color there’s one main thing you need to consider, what do you want your accent color to accomplish? Do you want it to be bright? Do you want it compliment the color palette in a subtle way? Maybe you want something that does both? If you’re having a hard time deciding how to use color to accent, these 3 ways to accent your home with color will help. Each of the 3 ways to accent your home with color gives you design ideas and decor options to help you accent with color.

1. Accent A Wall

The easiest, and most effective way, to accent with color in your home is by painting a wall. It’s one wall with one color and you’re done. Painting can be a hassle, but thankfully it’s only one wall and not the entire room. This wall can be painted in a bright color to stand out or it can be used to add color while complimenting the space (pictured above).

2. Accent A Specific Section

If you want to get creative with color, try accenting a specific section of the space. For example, in the kitchen you can paint the island a different color to create an accent piece in the kitchen space (pictured above). Another way this has been done is by painting the inside of shelves. If it’s a built in shelf, for example, the inside area of the shelf can be painted a different color to create a more interesting accent style.

3. Accent With Accessories

The third way to accent with color does not involve painting. If you’re not handy with a brush, this is the option for you. Accent the space by decorating with accessories (pictured above). This is usually done by decorating on a neutral color palette in order for the accessory colors to pop. Hunting the pieces down can be a task, but it is all part of the fun that we call decorating. Also, don’t forget how easy the internet has made shopping for specific color palettes. Each item adds a fun pop of color that allows you to use colors to accent the space to your heart’s desire. Coastal cottage style kitchen with light blue and turquoise accent pieces Coastal living room with a bright yellow accent painted wall and accessoires to match
