Beach coastal mixing blues and natural woodsWe all know blue and white compliment each other extremely well. There’s no questioning that color combination when it comes to decor. However, one other color, more of a material, accents blue hues just as well and that’s wood.

Wood is a great material to pair with the color blue. You can decorate with light or dark wood and find a blue hue that matches flawlessly. Pair a strong navy blue with a deep walnut to bring out the rich hues of each color. If you’re decorating with a lighter palette you can compliment a light blue with an ash or white oak.

Mix and match hues to find the perfect color combination for your home! Check out how these designers have paired blue with different types and hues of wood!

Thursday Tuva-Luvs

Tuvalu Home Tuva-Luvstuva-luvs-liza-roost-napa-candelabra-tuvalu-homeOur Thursday Tuva-Luv this week is brought to us by Liz! One of her store favorites is the roost napa candelabra. The roost napa candelabra is locally made by a Napa Valley craftsman from noble old grape vines and fitted with sand-cast recycled aluminum holders for five tealights or small votives. A beautiful gnarled piece of grapevine wood adds a warm touch to any room. The Napa Candelabra will be the center of attention on any table display. Twisted and elegant, no two pieces are exactly the same. Find the roost napa candelabra online at Tuvalu Home!

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!

Tuesday’s Tips From The Pros

Today we’re looking at some beautiful bedrooms. The bedroom is arguably one of the best rooms in the house. We love the kitchen, mostly the food, and of course our family room, but the bedroom will always be at the top. We want to inspire you today with bedrooms we like and design aspects of the bedroom we like. We’re just going to get you warmed up for next week when we show you how to redo your bedroom Tuvalu style. So hopefully you’re still in your bed and getting cozy because we wish we were!

We are envious of this space. It makes us think of driftwood or being out at sea. The tall ceilings with the rustic wood posts shaping the headboard is stunning. Not only is the headboard lined with thick wood posts, but the ceiling is too! What a great and unique idea instead of the typical crown moulding. The side table/nightstand and the wood bench in front of the bed also make great accent pieces without pushing the rustic, wood feel over the top. This is Tuvalu love.

This bedroom feels so light and airy. It’s inviting and looks relaxing. It makes you want to run and jump into the bed and forget about your worries. We also enjoy the symmetry of the room with the night stands and the lamps really bringing that aspect to the room. The rug underneath the bed leading out to the chest is a great way to add a little extra detail to the room. We like that the rug compliments the room and doesn’t stand out or clash what-so-ever. Be careful when choosing a rug that will go underneath your bed. A few things to keep in mind is the amount of space you have, your color scheme and of course quality.

We love anything that hangs, especially beds. These beds are beautiful hanging beds. From the ropes to the pillows, we love it! We like the vertical stripes on the walls as well. It gives the room an even bigger, taller feeling with the already tall feeling that the hanging ropes gave.

This room is all about the color scheme – blue and white. There’s almost too much blue and white in this bedroom, but did you notice the little touches of red in the pillows and the bedding? When you’re trying to stick to a color scheme you want to make sure you don’t go over board. It’s really easy to go over board and when you realize it, it’s usually too late. Keep your color scheme in mind when you’re putting together your bedroom, but don’t forget to bring in another color that will compliment your scheme. That’s not to say that you can’t do a color scheme without going over board. It’s possible, just harder to do.

When it comes to coastal design we all think of beach cottages filled with whites, blues and neutrals; but not all of us have that taste. This room has more pop and brings an eclectic look to the room while still infusing coastal design elements. It brings together bright prints and patterns with accessories to match. Every style is up to your interpretation and that’s how design grows and evolves. Feel free to break the rules and let your true creativity come out.
