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?
Using 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.
We’re huge fans of HGTV’s popular show, Fixer Upper, and are so excited to be carrying Joanna Gaines new line of area rugs. Joanna’s new collection reflects her simple and fresh, yet timeless style.
Joanna’s line was announced in the Fall, and when we saw it at the High Point Furniture Market, we fell in love and knew we had to have it!
We’re attracted to Joanna’s design creativity, and her feelings about the story behind how these rugs are crafted, as she describes on her blog:
“Something I love about these textiles is that they are made in different places using a variety of old and new world techniques. Some are hand knotted or hooked in India from 100% wool or jute, others are power-loomed in Egypt from polyester, and that’s not even the half of it. The whole process intrigues me. I love knowing that each one of these rugs was made with love and care, no matter what country the artisan who made it is from.”
The blue rug in the photo below is part of Emmie Kay Collection, with a delicatehand-woven pattern work inspired by traditional Nordic sweater motifs.
Joanna is known for her rustic style with modern touches. Many of her designs feature shiplap, which is a Pineapple Girl’s favorite for walls!
The collection features rugs of all sizes and includes both wool and jute rugs. Jute rugs work well in a coastal inspired home. The natural fibers and texture are perfect for a beach house.
The Pineapple Girls love Perle by Lola jewelry. The collection features beautiful necklaces and bracelets that were created by a Parisian born designer who was inspired by the seas of Miami, St. Tropez and St. Barth. Her pieces use natural and organic elements, like freshwater pearls and semi-precious stones. The jewelry is coastal and contemporary.
Let’s face it, guys need a little help in the gifting area sometimes. We are here to help!
We are pleased to be featuring Perle by Lola with a trunk show at our store, Pineapples, Palms, Etc. on February 14. Stop by with your special guy to pick out something beautiful, or send him by the store and we will help him out. The collection is also available online.
Jamie Dietrich grew up in Southern California, where diversity, history and casual beach living are her continual inspiration.
We love her collection of coral bottles. All are handmade with natural sea life, geode stones and crystals. Each bottle is unique in appearance and will vary slightly in character, size, color, etc. No two are alike, these pieces are truly one-of-a-kind!
Created in her Los Angeles studio, Jamie’s work has been featured in magazines like InStyle, House Beautiful, Elle Decor and Architectural Digest. Her love for the recycled and vintage is showcased in every unique piece.
The Pineapple Girls love her vintage bottles with hand selected geodes, crystals and use of natural sea life.
Lighting is a very important element in any room, and choosing the right table lamps help set the tone for your space. Your table lamps can be works of art, creating not only lighting, but a design element in your home.
Lamps can add elegance, drama or create a casual feel, depending on their shape, size and composition of materials used in the base, as well as the shade. For example, a clear crystal lamp base, with a white linen shade add a touch of elegance and formality to the space, while a ceramic base lamp with a textured or woven shade make the room feel more relaxed. Our driftwood and metal lamp below becomes a focal point suggesting a modern, organic and coastal lifestyle. These are just some of the roles your lighting plays in your home, and that is why we suggest carefully selecting your lamps that will reflect the personality and style you desire.
Many of our lamps have organic, natural bases, utilizing materials like agate, driftwood and coral, which work well in transitional, modern or coastal homes.
