How To Create Extra Seating In Your Home

When planning the look of your space, remember that stylish decor elements in your home can also be functional. We love stools and ottomans tucked away for extra seating when guests come over.  In the photo below, a pair of ottomans opposite the coffee table adds a bit of fun, while maintaining casual elegance in the space.

Living Room Design by Pineapples, Palms, Etc. Design Team

These cute stools can be placed next to a sofa or occasional chair as a perfect spot to place a drink or magazine.  Under a console, they add a decorative element and you can easily slide them out to add a few extra seats to your living room.

stoolsPoufs are trending right now, and the Pineapple Girls love them.  They are soft and plush, and can be customized with a variety of fabrics.

Stools, poufs and ottomans can also be used in the bathroom…they are the perfect seating for a vanity.  We love these Lee Industries ottomans with nailhead trim.

Here are a few of our favorite pieces to add extra seating to your home…

Anatomy of a Cozy Bedroom Design

A bedroom should be your sanctuary.  A place to relax and unwind! We love this modern coastal master suite that was created by the Pineapples, Palms, Etc. Design Team.

The soft palette and modern design with classic touches creates a soothing vibe.  We love the color palette: seaglass and  crisp white.  The fabric for the drapery, pillows and upholstered bench reflect different shades of seaglass, in both solids and patterns.

For nightstands, the pineapple girls like to use a chest.  It adds practicality with additional storage and works well to scale with the larger upholstered beds that have become so popular.

A modern writing desk is a perfect desk size for a bedroom and adding a luxurious seating area is a great spot for reading or enjoying the view.

A chandelier in the bedroom can create a peaceful ambiance with a touch of luxury.

One of the reasons people love hotel suites is that there is no clutter…try to keep your master bedroom free of clutter to achieve this effect.

20 Throw Pillows For Your Coastal Home

We are always talking pillows, and as in our previous blog posts,  adding new throw pillows to a room is one of the easiest ways to freshen up your decor. The Pineapple Girls love throw pillows and there are so many options for your coastal inspired home.

We love belgian linen, ikat and personalized pillows in fresh, crisp fabrics. We also think throw pillows should be luxuriously overstuffed…life is too short!  Slipcovered pillows make them very easy to clean and swap out with the season.
