:: Monarch Beach Design Project ::

Standard

Monarch-beach-coastal-home-tuvalu-001This design project is truly a special project to us here at Tuvalu Home. It belongs to one of our own who is responsible for many of the amazing things within our company and (as you will see) has remarkable taste and style. This home is absolutely  beautiful and this moment has long been awaited. We’re so happy that we can finally show this to you! You really have no idea how long we’ve been waiting for this! The home is 110% Tuvalu, literally everything is from out store. If you’re anxious to see this home right now, jump over to the portfolio page here. We don’t blame you, you can come back and read more later. For those of you who want a little more info, keep on reading!

After nearly 10 years as a buyer for our store, Jaymi has had plenty of time to gather her favorite Tuvalu pieces for when the time came to create her perfect home by the sea.  Recently, the time came and finally she was able to transform her home into the perfect space.

In looking for inspiration Jaymi would always think of the grandest most beautiful homes and hotels she had been to and take note of what made them feel so special. She used this little strategy and applied it to her smaller home for a luxurious cozy feel.

When people ask Jaymi what the style of her home is she has no idea what to tell them except that it is just filled with all the things that she loves individually or that mean something to her. And somehow, with no surprise, they all just work. But she says these two rugs pictured directly below are a good representation of her style – a little coastal and little rustic.  She couldn’t decide on which one she wanted for her living room. She didn’t know if she wanted to go more rustic with the cowhide or stay true to her location with a coastal blue and white striped rug, but in the end she couldn’t part with either. As time went on it turned out she loved them just the way they are, in perfect harmony.

We’ve dropped a few pictures in this post to show you guys what we’re talking about. These are just a sample and you absolutely have to go to the portfolio page for this design project. Go to portfolio page here! And don’t worry, we aren’t done talking about this project yet. We have another post coming that’s going to breakdown some of the rooms, details and more! Plus some before and afters! Stay tuned and enjoy!

:: Pacific Edge Hotel Cabana Four ::

tuvalu-cabana-before-6 tuvalu-cabana-7 tuvalu-cabana-9 Pacific Edge Hotel’s Snack, Sip and Surf event yesterday was a success! We have all of our photos of the cabana we designed for the event up in our portfolio section! We have a few before and afters above, but see the rest of them here! We love the way our cabana turned out! For this project we teamed up with Hobie and used this space to show the history of Hobie and the surf and skate culture that it fueled. Our Tuvalu designers, Laurie Alter and Wendy Grand Pre, did such an amazing job incorporating these aspects into the design while still showing the beautiful, coastal Tuvalu Home style. We hope you enjoy More pictures here!

Feature Friday




We’re making progress! We ripped out the cabinets, started painting and torn down the wall to connect the store with the design studio! Check out what it used to look like here. We’re staying true to the sea and going with a fun hue of cyan to bring the studio some color. We want it to be bright and inspire creativity! This is all we’ve got for you now, but stay tuned for more updates on our design studio. Happy Friday!

:: Tuvalu Design Studio Expansion Part 1 ::

Standard

We’re expanding the store! We’ve taken over the cigar shop behind us to make room for our design studio. We plan on dedicating this area to the design aspect of Tuvalu Home. Right now the design studio, or lack there of, is just a tiny, little corner in the store and we think you guys deserve more!

We plan on keeping you guys up to date on our expansion project and here is day one. We finally got into the space and the previous occupant out. Now it’s time to draw up some plans and start designing. Stay tuned for future updates and progress on our project so you can watch the space transform into our design studio.
