Monday Pins

Coastal cabinet with sea inspired detailsOne thing you can never over stress are the details. It’s the little things in design that really complete the decor. The subtle addition of color here or the way you placed a shell there, is like the icing on the cake. The details can really add character and style to a space without even looking like they’re trying.

That’s why this week’s Monday Pins post features beautiful spaces that have taken the time to notice the details. Whether it be the color palette or the choice to fill up or let a space breathe, these pictures are ripe for the pinning when it comes to great examples of detail decoration. Get those pin buttons ready, ladies and gentlemen, because these pictures should be pinned to your boards! Enjoy the rest of your week!

Coastal table lamp filled with shellsSea shells will forever be a part of coastal decor. Today we’re focusing on one of the basics of coastal style. They can be used as little accessories in any space or they can be an attention grabbing, focal point in a room. And let’s not forget the fact that they come in every shape, color, form, size and style. Shells are a classic, versatile part of the coastal style that we love incorporating into our design work and from the looks of it, everyone else does too. Check out some of these great images we’ve found that use shells perfectly and in various ways.

What’s Trending Wednesday

We’ve spotted these little guys in a few different places and we’ve noticed that the little sea urchin has snuck it’s way back into coastal design lately. The sea urchin is a classic tide pool find that has been in coastal and beach decor forever. Usually showing up in it’s natural form as a shell, but it’s been known to appear on pillows and in art and various other places. The great part of sea urchin shells is that they come in a variety of colors! Perfect to match your color scheme or to add a little pop of color.

Tuesday’s Tip From The Pros

We want to bring a little touch of the beach to your home and we’re going to start with your bathroom. The best part about this is you can do this with any bathroom of any size. It can be a full overhaul that transforms your bathroom into the perfect beach cottage getaway or just a few accessories that bring the beach to your powder room. So let’s take a look at what you can do to take the leap into the ocean of bathroom design.

Glass jars are something that can add style and functionality. These jars can offer the perfect coastal vibes when filled with seashells or sponges and can offer extra storage space for cottage swobs or q-tips. It’s a two in one and you can’t beat that! Check out our glass jars here and pick some up to help your bathroom out!

The laundry basket is kind of a no brainer, it makes clean up easy and adds a little touch coastal-rustic style to the bathroom. Make it easy on yourself on those early mornings and have that basket handy for when your jumping in and out of the shower. Trust us, you’ll thank yourself later. Snag our wire laundry basket here!

Bathrooms are only so big, so why not try to maximize the space? Small tables will help add extra storage space, display space and surface space. You’ll love your table in your bathroom when you have extra space to put towels or your bubble bath soap.

I don’t know about you, but in the morning the tile on my bathroom floor is cold! So our way around that is a nice warm rug! This way it completes the room and keeps our toes warm! Check out our rugs here!

No bathroom is complete without some coastal accessories and we have plenty for you! From soap dish trays to towels you can cover your bathroom with the perfect accessories. Here at Tuvalu we’ve got plenty for you to choose from. Find all kinds of accessories at Tuvalu Home!
