We had so much great feedback from our last post about Modern Easter decor, that we decided to share a few other ideas for unique easter eggs. We hope you enjoy these fun videos. Have a happy Easter!
Easter is right around the corner! The Pineapple Girls love using modern coastal elements to add a fun and interesting twist to the traditional ways of decorating and displaying Easter eggs.
We were looking for ways to style a coffee table for an upcoming Easter gathering and decided to use these new white rope lanterns that just came in to the store. We love the coastal look of these lanterns, which can be used to hold candles…or even Easter Eggs!
Here is a quick and easy tutorial for how to use the lanterns to create a stylish coffee table for Easter:
Happy Easter from The Pineapple Girls!
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.
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.
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…
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.
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.
Here are a few of our favorites:
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 delicate hand-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.
When choosing decor for a space, fabric is a key element. It’s important to find the right combination for your drapery, furniture and pillows. Many people are intimidated by the different options and unsure how to coordinate different patterns together. We think choosing fabric should be a fun experience! Once you know a few tricks, you can mix and match like a pro.
First, choose your color palette. If it’s blues, multiple tones are a great choice, this gives you more options when selecting accessories.
Typically you fall in love with a pattern within your palette, which is usually bold and becomes your “lead” fabric, from there you can choose less prominent coordinating patterns to pull it all together.
Stripes are always a good choice for your 2nd fabric, as they blend well with ikats, large patterns, small patterns, or just about everything.
The third fabric could be a solid. If you use a pattern on your throw pillows, you might want a solid on your drapes. If your sofa is solid, the throw pillows are a great place to add some patterns.
A good rule to remember is the rule of three. More than three colors or patterns in a room can look busy.
A white, slipcovered sofa is a great canvas for adding patterned throw pillows in colorful fabrics.
All the furniture lines we carry in our store offer the option to choose custom fabric, so you can be as creative and unique as you like. Have fun mixing and matching! If you need help, check out our new e-design service.
