:: The Ranch Featured On Forbes ::

Standard

ranch-at-laguna-beach-1200x675The Ranch at Laguna Beach is featured on Forbes! And guess who got a little mention? That’s right! Tuvalu Home and our wonderful owner, Laurie Alter, got a nice, little mention in the article.

It reads, “His sister, Laurie Alter, with whom he co-owns the popular Tuvalu Home Environment furnishings store in Laguna Beach (and the wife of Hobie’s son), designed the rooms to have the vibe of a small beach town, including rustic rope chandeliers, patterned tile backsplashes and vintage-looking distressed-leather couches.”

Head over and read the entire article “A Fresh Slice of Orange County: The Newly Reinvented Ranch at Laguna Beach” on Forbes

First, find a bottle or jar you would like to paint. Second, find the color you wish to paint your bottles or jars. Third, paint the bottle or jar and apply as many coats as needed for your desired look. That’s it! Three simple steps and you have your new painted bottles or jars!

Feature Friday

tuvalu-vegas-henderson-7The Tuvalu team headed out to Vegas this last week to install our wonderful clients new home decor! And we love the way it came out! We journeyed from our beloved Laguna Beach, fought the heat (just a cool 105 degrees), and a coastal, desert retreat was born! We’re so excited for this oasis in the desert to finally come to life! The designers for this lovely project were Laurie Alter, Stephanie Molinaro and Wendy Grand Pre. The true heroes of this install team though were Craig and Collin! Thanks to these gentlemen we were able to move everything in and get everything set up!

We’ve got plenty more pictures for you guys including some before and afters as well as some behind the scenes photos! We also have product details for each room and will be posting those as well! So check back with us so you can get the full Vegas install experience! We hope you love it as much as we do! Happy Friday!

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 ::

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.
