Tuesday Tips

Coastal kitchen with plenty of space and natural lightIt’s the season of the kitchen and we’re spending a good chunk of time in our beloved space. When we’re whirling around conducting a spiced filled symphony in our kitchens, we want to make sure all is in harmony and on cue. There’s no need to make your life more difficult, that’s why we’ve come up with these 3 quick tips to get your kitchen ready for the holidays. Get those aprons ready, heat up those ovens and get ready for the holiday season!

1. Cut The Clutter

If it doesn’t need to be in the kitchen get rid of it. Seriously, the last thing we need is to be tripping over things or frantically searching for counter space. The holidays are stressful enough, the last thing we need to add to it is mess and clutter.

2. Check The Kitchen Tools

Is everything good to go? Are those whisks still, well, whisky? Make sure the wine is ready while you’re at it. Do those pots and pans have another season in them? Are those mixers still mixing? Check and make sure everything you need is actually going to work. We don’t want a meltdown while that souffle is melting down.

3. Carry A Stockpile

We’re not saying you need all Costco this holiday season, but you definitely want to make sure you have plenty of goods. Running out mid-meal to grab ingredients is completely avoidable these holidays. Also the holidays are always faster and demand more time for everything. That being said, make sure you have some quick, healthy and easy meals ready to go.

Got all that ladies and gentlemen? There’s no reason these holidays shouldn’t go smooth and be successful. Tuvalu wants to help you guys out, but much more importantly, we want you guys to enjoy yourselves over the holidays. Happy cooking!Cozy coastal kitchenCountry style kitchen with a cozy feel Rustic inspired details in a kitchen

What’s Trending Wednesday

Coastal dining space in a cottage style home with a rustic, farm tableThere’s something cozy about rustic furniture. Maybe it’s the weathered charm that invokes feelings of the past or the idea that it perfectly serves its purpose without looking perfect. It allows you to feel like you can truly be yourself and live in your home without the worry of breaking anything like you would in a polished, immaculate home. Not only does it bring you comfort, but it also brings character. Each piece is unique in its own way. Take a look at what designers have done in these coastal spaces with rustic furniture and decor. Get inspired by these spaces and appreciate what the style can offer to you and your home.

Tuesday’s Tips From The Pros

Today we show you how to bring the Tuvalu feel to your living room with a little rustic coastal love. We love blending styles and creating beautiful spaces with a fresh new look. This gives you the ability to pull from more than one style and create a unique, one of kind space. We love coastal and rustic decor together because they blend so seamlessly. Over time any cute beach cottage is going to get that natural wear and tear from the ocean. So why not capitalize on that and run with the design style that naturally occurs on its own? Exactly! Plus no one wants coastal decor overkill. Starfish and mermaids can only be used so many times. Bringing in other styles and design elements eliminates the repetition and excessive, overdone feeling of just one style. You don’t need to have an equal amount of pieces from each style. Some times it only takes one piece, like a side table or chair, to bring a different style to the space. So ladies, mix it up and bring in another style or multiple styles if you want!
