:: Coastal Living’s Ultimate Beach House 2012 ::

What’s Trending Wednesday


Coastal Living has designed their Ultimate Beach House of 2012. This year it’s a beautiful home in located in Panama City Beach, Florida. This house is refreshing and done very clean. Not like clean or dirty, but very clean lines and clean design. They decided to go with a simple, almost minimalist decor approach. The design style of Erika Powell from Urban Grace really shows in the design of the space. Some of the rooms have an almost modern look to them, but coastal elements keep it teetering on the edge of both styles. Other rooms look like they came straight out of every woman’s coastal dream home. Each space is very simple. No overdone or unnecessary pieces are carelessly or thoughtlessly slapped into the space. Each room is well thought out and planned.

The general color scheme of the house is hues of green offset with a neutral palette. There are some rooms, like the game room below and part of the kitchen (not pictured), that have the good old fashioned hue of coastal blue, but for the most part the home is centered around hues of green. It’s always fun and interesting to see homes that use different colors instead of the beloved blues. Overall this house is amazing and done very well. I can’t believe it took us this long to actually say something about it! What do you guys think? Love it? Hate it? Let us know in the comments or drop us on line on twitter! Tweet us @tuvaluhome.

:: Bright & Bold Pillows ::

What’s Trending Wednesday

Bright and bold pillows have been popping up left and right! They bring lots of color and let you get wild without going overboard. We aren’t quite sure how we feel about neon green or Barbie pink walls, maybe if they’re just a small accent wall. Pillows on the other hand, bring them on! It can bring life and pop to any dull room. Plus it allows you to experiment with prints and patterns you normally wouldn’t think of. If it doesn’t work you just pull the pillow off and it’s gone. If it’s a reupholstered sofa or freshly painted wall then that’s a chore and a headache. Pillows are easy and can be switched out even easier. Bring out different pillows for different seasons if you want or maybe it’s time to switch things up in the space and one easy way to do that is with some bright pillows. So get out there and start shopping ladies! Time to bring some life back to your home! Start you search with us at www.tuvaluhome.com!

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!
