:: Coastal Curb Appeal ::

Tuesday Tips

6869fd84a8cf2a0a10bfa7efd5b4a777 It’s time to give your home a little more coastal curb appeal! We think you should be welcomed home with open arms of coastal love. What better way to do that than give your front porch a touch of coastal charm?

One way to give your home quick coastal curb appeal is to paint the front door. Almost every house has a front door and painting yours can make your home stand out. A splash of color instantly draws any passerby’s eyes directly to it. Most people see boring doors on homes that are typically white or some neutral hue, but not yours! You’re gonna shake things up and bring some color to the block, watch out neighbors!

We have a few inspirational examples below to show you what some other beach lovers have done. Scroll down and check them out! Hopefully they will inspire you to bring out the old trusty paint brush.

:: Gourd Lamps! ::

Feature Friday

home-decor-must-haves-gourd-lamps-coastal-tuvaluWe were flipping through the latest HGTV Magazine and in their ‘fun decorating’ section they featured gourd lamps saying that you can count on them for decorating any space and we agree! These fun and colorful lamps can brighten up any space! They give the space more texture and flow as well. The lamp’s odd, gourd shapes aren’t like those traditional table lamps and will give your guest something they can’t overlook. You can find gourd shape lamps in all shapes, sizes and colors. We tossed our Jamie Young Gourd Table Lamp into the mix to show you just that. Pick up the Jamie Young Gourd Lamp Here.

Do you like gourd lamps? Or do you prefer something else? Let us know! Leave a comment with your thoughts, we’d love to here from you! Happy Friday!

:: 6 Tips On Creating A Gallery Wall ::

Tuesday Tips

how-to-create-a-gallery-wall-coral-coastalGallery walls are a great way to show off your art and photos. They also allow you to use your walls for design and to show off the things you love. Here are a few tips to creating a beautiful gallery wall:

  1. Get meaningful art pieces and pictures to frame to make your gallery more personalized.
  2. Pick out fun, interesting and unique frames; the art isn’t the only thing being displayed.
  3. Decide if you want a color palette or not.
  4. There isn’t a ‘right way’ to layout your gallery wall; there are no rules for displaying your pieces.
  5. There are no limits on how many pieces or the sizes you can use.
  6. Practice your gallery set up by laying it out on the floor.

Remember that a gallery wall is a direct expression of you, so don’t limit yourself! Show off your passions! Have fun putting your gallery wall together, but don’t forget to try new and different things to find your perfect layout!

photo-109We’re up and running with our design studio and we’re ready to help you create your dream space! Whether it be your kitchen or a complete redesign of your home, we’d love to help you and give you exactly what you want. We try to make the experience as easy and stress free as possible by meeting every client’s unique wants and needs.

We offer custom hardwood flooring that we’ve created, wall coverings, window treatments, fabrics, tile, marble, custom cabinetry, furniture, lighting and of course styling to list a few of our design studio services. Our team will also help you hunt down the perfect pieces for any room and work will you to create palettes, ideas and styles 100% custom to you. We don’t slap a cookie cutter, pre-designed style into you home because that’s not what designing is to us. We believe that designing is an expression of a person’s individual style and taste incorporated into a space. Since no one person is exactly the same, no space should be exactly the same.

Feel free to come in and talk to us or call us at (949) 497-3202 if you have any questions and want to know more. During the month of January we’re offering complimentary design consultations when you bring in this coupon. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you with your next project. Happy Friday!
