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.

Neutral home decor with pops of purple accenting the space
A fun trend that we’ve seen people decorating with lately is livening up their neutral spaces with pops of color. This is a great way to bring new life to an old room or a space that has been designed with a neutral color palette. It leaves you with so many decor options and gives you a chance to bring fun and bright accent colors to the space. You can choose to decorate with big or small pops of color, like a bright sofa or even colored lamps. The choice is yours! Have fun with the new pops of color you choose to add to your space!

We’ve been seeing rustic, coastal design done right lately and we’re loving it. You can tell because it feels right. I know we can throw out some design jargon as to why it works or compliments this or that, but deep down you can just feel it throughout your entire body. You don’t want to change anything and you don’t need to add anything either. Lately we’ve been seeing a lot of original wood floors and wall panels. Also, people these days aren’t afraid to bring in a little color. Home owners are accepting and embracing the original installations of their home instead of ripping it all out and redoing it from top to bottom. We’re attributing it to this day and age’s DYI attitude mixed in with a little of the latest style trends and we’re loving it!
