These floor pillows are the perfect accessory for any family room or living room. They add a fun design element and double as a little extra seating. Who wouldn’t mind that? They’re especially great for all those entertainers out there!

In design, it’s the little things that count and a pouf can be used as a great accent in any space. They can add texture, color, or even act as a little extra filler in a large room.

:: 3 Easy Tips To A Kid Friendly Living Room ::

Tuesday Tips

coastal living room ready to take on the familyChildren play a large part when it comes to home design. Designing for the kids is completely different than designing for an empty nest, especially when it comes to younger kids. The way you shop for furniture and accessories will be and is completely different. That’s why we have 3 easy tips for you on how to design a kid friendly living room! We want to get you started on the right foot. Hopefully we can get you thinking about a few key design points when it comes to decorating with kids in mind.

1. Upholstery that can take a beating.

The sofa and the chairs are going into battle. It’s furniture versus children and the kids have the upper hand. The upholstery will be jumped on, spilled on and dirtied up. Invest in materials that can stand the abuse and can be easily cleaned. If you can only get one, choose the latter of the two. One choice to consider is leather. Leather can stand up to the abuse and can be cleaned fairly easy. Leather isn’t your style? Start looking into slipcovers – now. They will become your best friends when the messes come. Just pull them off and wash them, Life can be that easy sometimes.

2. Pick out a strong coffee table.

This is a must! You NEED a coffee table that will last. This is going to be a crucial piece in the living room. The kids will use it for many things and you’ll be extremely thankful you picked out a good, sturdy coffee table. It will be used as a place to eat, a place to play, a place for crafts and many other activities. Do it right the first time and get a solid, reliable coffee table.

3. Choose a wipe worthy paint.

Not all paint is created equal. You find this out when you have kids. Some how, some way, it all ends up on the walls. Researchers still have no idea how this happens and will forever be a mystery. It’s truly inevitable which means you need to cover the walls with paint that can stand a deep cleaning. Look into paint that can hold up with a thorough wipe down and won’t fade after one clean. It also doesn’t hurt to keep a little extra touch up paint handy, but let’s hope it never gets to that point.

Coastal decorated bookcase with a marble inlufenced wallpaper inlayWallpaper’s not limited to the walls anymore. We love a good wallpaper and love it even more when it’s done right (as you’ll see below), but lately designers and creatives are pushing the potential for wallpaper. They’re using it creatively on the walls and putting in places that we should have been using it a long time ago, but for some reason we haven’t. Thanks to the internet – let’s be honest, Pinterest – people are sharing their creative ideas and uses of wallpaper which gets the wheels turning for everyone else. Finding new and exciting places to slap that wallpaper is pushing decor, design and style to another level and we love it.

Check out some of these creative wallpaper ideas we’ve put in this post. Our favorite has to be the the picture right below this text. Look at the fireplace, that’s Ralph Lauren’s black Yacare Crocodile wallpaper on the chimney breast. We absolutely love that idea and placement. It definitely gets some ideas going in our heads.

What do you guys think? Are you a fan? Also, what are some creative wallpaper ideas you’ve seen? Don’t behind afraid to drop us a line, we’d love to hear from you guys!

:: Coastal Kitchens – Metal Adjustable Stools ::

Tuesday Tips

A clean, coastal kitchen with round wood top, metal base adjustable stoolsDo you get excited when you walk into your kitchen? If you don’t, we think we may have a solution to your problem. Take a look at metal, adjustable bar stools. These bar stools are perfect for the kitchen island or bar. They have a great look that adds more texture, style and seating options to the kitchen space.

These stool are often seen with a round wood top and metal base, but you can find all metal ones if you’re going for that look instead. The fact that the stool is adjustable also adds a huge perk to its design. This ability allows you to get the perfect height for your island or bar which can really make or break a stool. Not the right height? No problem, adjust until it is!

Browse these photos we’ve added to this post and get a feel for what we’re talking about! See how these designers have used metal adjustable stools in the kitchen and get inspired!

What’s Trending Wednesday

coastal living coastal staircase home built in storage stairsThe staircase, like the bathroom, can often be overlooked and forgotten. Don’t waste that space! It can be a tricky space because it’s not the easiest to design. You mostly have walls, a small shelf space of sorts and a little floor space at the bottom to work with, but that’s okay! A lot can be done in that small amount of space! There’s no need to limit yourself. Plus we can’t forget about the stairs themselves. We can use stair runners, wood or even tiles to decorate them giving us even more options.

Check out some of these staircases to find out what other people/designers are doing and to get some inspiration! Apply what you like to your home.
