Coastal kitchen with large wicker pendant lights and dark cabinets with white wallsToday we have 3 quicks tips to help in the kitchen! We spend a lot of time in our kitchens so why not love them? Here are 3 ways to help you enjoy your coastal home kitchen!

1. Pop Those Colors

The kitchen gives you a place to really go bold with pops of color. With limited counter space you have to make your accessories count. Don’t forget that you can also bring in different colored lighting pieces as well!

2. Use Natural Textures

With most kitchens having wood cabinets it easy to forget that you can play and design off those textures. There’s no need to just slap a coat of paint on the cabinets and call it a day. If that’s how you planned it, there’s no problem with that, but don’t forget that you can expand on the natural wood grains and textures to bring your kitchen to the next level.

3. Play With Patterns

Kitchens are a great place to have fun with patterns. They can be bright and pop out or they can compliment the color palette. The choices are endless and so are the pattern placements. Explore pattern ideas with kitchen rugs, the back splash and maybe even the tile floor. The pattern possibilities are endless!

Tuesday Tips

Beautiful tropical decor inspired outdoor patio spaceTropical home decor is great for transforming your home into the tropical island getaway you’ve always wanted. Incorporate lush, green plants and natural, earthy tones to create a tropical paradise. Today we have 3 quick decorating tips for tropical design in your home. These tips will help you get started on a tropical home decor journey in the place you call home.

1. Keep It Tonal
Go neutral with the colors and tones in your home. Step away from the typical tropical style that uses bright colors and crazy patterns. Create an environment and space that invokes relaxing island feels. Try decorating with whites and natural colors.

2. Lush Greens
Tropical locales are always rich in greens. Upon seeing bright greens and palm leaves, you’re immediately transported to the tropical state of mind. Pair the vibrant greens with a neutral color palette and really create a lasting impression.

3. Natural Elements
Designing with natural materials not only brings an element of nature, but a look that can withstand the weather. Tropical regions are prone to wet weather and need materials that can look good as well as preform. Turn to designing with light colored woods or even dark, rich woods to create a striking look.
