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!

Coastal beach cottage with a giant model sail boat as decorWe love sail boats and working model sail boats into homes as decor. Nothing reminds us of the wide open ocean better than a sail boat. Going down to the harbor in Dana Point and walking around is so fun. You get to walk along the beach where you see all the boats out in the water and dream about being out on the water. It’s relaxing and peaceful.

We love bringing that feeling into the home and adding a model sail boats into the space is a great way to achieve that. It gives us the feel of adventure and playful memories. Plus model sail boats stand out and give the room a nautical theme unlike any other. They’re a great decor addition for any coastal home. You can go big and have them dominate the space or you can grab smaller ones that playfully accent your nautical theme. Either way we love working them into our homes.
