Outdoor Living

Summer makes us think of dining al fresco, relaxing at the beach and enjoying margaritas on the deck with good friends.

The Pineapple Girls love to work hard and play hard too. In the summer months, you will find us enjoying fun weekends with family, by the ocean or in our own backyards.

Here are a few of our must-have pieces for outdoor living in the summer:

GOVINO SHATTERPROOF GLASSES

Our exclusive pineapple logo shatterproof wine glasses are perfect for summer fun activities, on the boat, parks, picnics, or on the patio.   The glasses are shatterproof, reusable, recyclable and have an indentation for your thumb, making them easy to hold. Cheers!

SLIPCOVERED FURNITURE

When designing your outdoor space, think of it like an indoor living room. There are so many great options now like weather resistant Sunbrella fabrics that not only repeal water and stains, but can be easily wiped off.  Indoor/Outdoor  rugs and pillows, look great, but also resist stains and water!

LANTERNS

Lighting your outdoor space is important as the sun sets and we love lanterns! They definitely add ambiance and a bit of magic to a fun summer evening.  We suggest Marine Grade Stainless Steel Lanterns when possible, but if you don’t have them, just move your lanterns inside when not entertaining.

STYLE

Just because your are outdoors, doesn’t mean you can’t add a lot of style to your furniture and accessories. We love the dramatic Elizabethan shape of this chair- perfect for making an outdoor statement,  thanks to material that can withstand the elements. This chair is also available in a dining chair!

THROWBED

We have talked about our love for throwbeds before. These down and fiber filled cushions are completely portable and very versatile. You can roll it up, toss it in the jeep and head to the beach. Also great for kids to “throw down” for a quick nap or a sleepover.

Classic American Design

In the spirit of summer holidays like Memorial Day and Independence Day, we decided to pay homage to a few of our favorite American designers, and thank them for sharing their inspiration with all of us.

Ralph Lauren

When talking American designers, no name is more recognizable than Ralph Lauren.  He truly redefined American style. Lauren’s classic designs integrate into every lifestyle from country, traditional, and our personal favorite…a clean, coastal style. His traditional blue & white designs in fabrics and home accessories  remain timeless, yet fresh. In design, simply saying it’s very “Ralph” gives a vision that everyone understands. We are proud to be a Ralph Lauren dealer and have the opportunity to feature his great American Style in many of our designs.

Barclay Butera

Barclay Butera has based his career on a passion for beautiful yet livable design. Butera is based in Los Angeles, and has a distinctive signature style. It is classic with a french twist that is flawlessly integrated into traditional, transitional and contemporary interiors alike.  It’s a brand that resonates with us and our customers.

Aerin Lauder

AERIN  a global luxury lifestyle brand inspired by the signature style of it’s founder, Aerin Lauder.  Based on the premise that living beautifully should be effortless, the brand develops curated collections in the worlds of beauty, fashion accessories and home decor.  Classic, but always with a modern point of view.  The Pineapple Girls love her luxury home decor pieces, and incorporating them into our design projects, as well as our retail store.

John Robshaw

A Pineapple Girls favorite, Robshaw is a textile designer with a passion for art, gathering ideas, techniques and unique perspectives from a myriad of world travels. He studied traditional block printing in China, printmaking in Rome and fell in love with the fabric making traditions of local artisans during a trip to India.  John Robshaw designs fit seamlessly into our coastal style and we look forward to his new introductions at every market.

Jonathan Adler

We love his sense of fun and distinct style of “Modern American Glamour”. He recently brought his talents to our neck of the woods with design of the Eau Hotel & Spa in Manalapan, Florida.

 

 

Kid & Pet Friendly Home Decor

Is it possible to have a stylish home with young children and pets living there? We say yes! Here are a few of our best tips when designing a space with little (or furry) ones in mind.

There are so many great outdoor fabric options now, and these also work well indoors. These fabrics resist moisture and most stains. Other stain resistant fabrics like denim and canvas work well, too.

A great place to use the outdoor fabric is in the kitchen…on barstools, benches or banquettes.  Indoor/Outdoor fabrics have improved dramatically, with a softer feel and great looking textures.

The Pineapple Girls love slipcovers, they are so easy to throw in the washing machine! Don’t be afraid to use a light color, even white! You can bleach them.

Durable flooring is important for homes with kids and dogs.  Some ceramic tile has the look of hardwood, but is maintenance free, and a great choice.  Add an indoor/outdoor area rug to get the style your looking for, and they are super easy to clean!

Try to avoid hard edges on the tables. We love round dining tables!  Better for fun conversation at family dinners.

Finally, choose a washable good quality paint to easily remove scuffs and little hand prints.

 

 

 

 

 

Wedding Gift Round-Up

It’s wedding season! A wedding is such a happy event, but finding a truly special gift for the newlyweds can be challenging.  Below are some Pineapple Girls favorites.

Coordinates Glasses

Your gift should be as special as their love! Give a gift they will forever cherish. Our unique Coordinate Stemless Wines, On the Rocks, or Beer Pilsners can be customized with the exact coordinates of where he proposed, where they got married, or the special destination they choose for their honeymoon. They also make the perfect gift for the bridal party, or wedding favor for all the guests to remember their special day.

Express Yourself Pillows

Such a sweet addition to a newlywed’s home, these flour sack pillows with down inserts are sure to delight. Perfect on the bed, sofa or a chair.

Michael Aram Heart Frame (8×10)

The Heart Collection, by Michael Aram, takes its inspiration from the imagery that floats around classic storytelling. “These heart vessels are all unique as they are hand forged and cut. There is an individuality to each piece, just as our hearts and expressions of love are different from person to person, from moment to moment. I love the idea of honoring our history with someone as much as our present and our futures. There is beauty in paying homage not only to what came before at the same time as dreaming of what lies ahead, while capturing the celebratory moment you are in. They represent Then, Now, and Forever!”

Brahms  Mount Throw

Something blue and perfect! A true classic, with a twist, from Brahms Mount. Their iconic cotton throw features a large-scale herringbone pattern finished with a flourish of hand-twisted and knotted rope fringe and their iconic selvedge (a beautiful byproduct of the antique loom it’s woven on). Dense, luxurious, plush and practical.

Tour Our Store

We thought it would be fun to take our online followers on a tour of our storefront in Jupiter, Florida.  Its a pretty special place. Our beautifully curated collection of modern coastal furniture and home accessories features a fresh style using natural, organic materials and fabrics.   Our ever changing showroom reflects our current, yet timeless collections available in home furnishings today.

Many of the items in the video and photos are also available in our online store.

Blue, White and Gold

Blue and white will always be classic yet current, and it’s one of the Pineapple Girl’s favorite color combos.   It’s perfect for an ocean inspired room.  In the photo below, the touches of gold add a modern vibe and keep the look current.  A little bling is never a bad thing, right?

blog post.jpgUsing the white slipcovered sofas and white shiplap walls as our canvas, we added complimentary blues in a variety of patterns and textures.  The pops of gold really make the room! The key is to add just enough gold to make a statement…don’t go overboard.
