Wednesday Spotlight: At The Beach

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

Beach Time Coaster SetBeach Labs Pillow

Summer is going by way too fast, so to celebrate summer now and after the season is over, we are spotlighting some of our beachy décor. Nautical accents and designs are always in season, and when you can’t make it out to the lake or to the ocean, or when we transition into the colder months, you can think back on summery memories and look forward to the ones to come.

Sit Back and Relax

Heading Out Sailing Print

Whether you’re on the back porch or watching a sunset from your living room, you’re more than likely going to be enjoying a refreshing beverage, and rather than leave watermarks on your furniture you can set that glass down on cheerful beach-themed coasters. With soft colors and a calming design, these coasters will look great next to your Adirondack chair on the porch or your sofa in the living room.

For some extra comfort on your seating or as an accent piece on a hallway bench, our Beach Labs Pillow is a colorful way to show your love for the beach and admiration for your canine companions. Enjoy the view of the ocean on a sandy beach, even when you can’t actually be there.

Take a Trip

While your summer plans may include traveling, it’s always nice to have home décor that will whisk you away to another place or inspire you to go on new adventures. We love the dreamy scene in Loren Blackburn’s Heading Out Sailing print, which will add a charming and cheerful picturesque accent to any wall of your home. Imagine yourself walking across the warm white sand and float away on the sailboat no matter the weather outside your windows.

Shoreline Wreath

k Rich blues and bright whites are staple nautical colors, and designer Liora Manne’s charming Navy Compass Rug brings out the best of this design theme. Place it on the floor of your entryway or kitchen, or place it outside on a deck or porch to direct the naval look outside to the sunshine.

Admire the Shoreline

Finally, our favorite summer treasures include shells found on the beach, and one of our favorite home accents is the wreath. The green Shoreline Wreath incorporates both of these things to give you a beautiful and fun summer accent for a wall or your front door. Seashells of many variations sit among starfish and sand dollars, creating a perfect addition to your nautical décor and for showing your love of the beach.

Thursday’s Theme: Office and Study Space Decor

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

This week’s Thursday’s Theme is dedicated to minimalist decor. More specifically, decorating in a small study within your home or in your office at work. These places may not be high on your decorating priority list, but it does not take much to add comfort and personality to these spaces.

Tissue BoxTissuesBulletin Board
Yes, tissues. A tissue box is easy to find at a drug store or supermarket, and are almost always available in colorful, decorative varieties. Choose one based on the season, your favorite color, or your favorite print and voila! An instant decoration that is also functional.

Bulletin Board
You may have one already, but a bulletin board in your office space can be more than just a place for posting notices and to-do lists; use it for design purposes and expression! Do you have a quirky e-card or quote you love reading? Print it out in color and hang it up to give yourself inspiration for your own home decor. A bulletin board works great with a dry-erase board (remember those from last week?), especially if you already use the dry-erase board for a calendar and scheduling; use the bulletin board for posting your creative and design idea to-do’s.

Oceania Mini LampDesk LampCoasters
This one is a little more obvious. But, instead of opting for a standard, plain desk lamp, invest in one that you’ll actually like looking at on your desk, and one that will perhaps invite conversation from guests or coworkers. 

Homemade Coasters
This takes a little more time to create, but DIY coasters are perfect functional and decorative pieces for a desk or table in your office (and they make great gifts for office parties). All it takes are a few store bought items, some of your favorite photos, and a great tutorial like this one to create an ornament that will keep your office surfaces clean!

How do you decorate your office, either at home or at work? We’d love to hear and share your ideas for personal, inspirational, and functional decor.
