Life On The Coast

In Florida, the beach is never truely far, especially when today’s home decor often integrates that classic coastal lifestyle we live and breathe down here in Jupiter. We make sure to carry a bit of home in all of our pieces.

Breakers Palm Beach Tray by Gray Malin

World renown photographer Gray Malin’s work is once again on our favorites list; These trays forge Gray’s most iconic images with exceptional product design. Whether you are using this to serve your guests at your next cocktail party or simply as a decorative piece, it will become a beautiful centerpiece of your home that naturally absorbs light, making the imagery glow almost magically.

Bring life to your modern coastal home with this Bubblegum Beach print! The happy palette and hand embellished texture will add a touch of whimsy to your decor.


We are loving this Rattan trend! Putting these timeless pieces paired with white accents makes is a great option to achieve that modern coastal home vibe. Here’s some of our favorites:

The Palecek Ventura Swivel Lounge Chair is crafted with a metal swivel base and hardwood frame with double wall back allowing you to spin 360 degrees. The sides are hand-wrapped natural lampakanai rope. 

The Rattan Sideboard is a classic coastal inspired buffet made from hand painted white mahogany and framed with natural rattan. It offers plenty of storage, with four equally sized drawers and two cabinet doors with interior shelving.

The Fabian Mirror is created by hand; voluptuous loops of natural rattan, corralled by a wide row of thick rattan braids, encircle a round mirror. 

The Palecek Malawi Occasional Chair is comfortable, stylish and features intricately woven pencil pole rattan with a pole rattan frame. The classic and crisp occasional chair includes a loose upholstered seat cushion.

The Tilly Table Lamp is a fresh accent piece that works well with a variety of decor styles, from coastal to traditional. It features a vibrant, glossy finish on the base and a crisp white linen drum shade to complete the modern and coastal look.

The Meri Bowl Chandelier is a gorgeous 4-light fixture that features a pierced, frost-white resin frame making you think of coral and shells for a refined yet relaxed, coastal vibe. Swipe to see this phenominal piece where it belongs: in a fabulous home like yours.

Decorating With Books

We have books to compliment any space in your home. Books are a great choice when placed on coffee, side tables or shelving. They look great stacked, leaning, or grouped together with frames, corals or other small decorative objects. Books provide the finishing touch, and also tell a meaningful story about you and what you love. Grouping books by color to blend with your decor, or selecting a large coffee table book that reflects your personal interests is the best way to work them into your decor.
Our collection of decorative books includes vintage collections, linen wrapped, color blocks and our popular quote books.

Trending Now – Blush — the barely there color that adds softness and elegance to any room. Try adding this new neutral hue to your space with a set of throw pillows, a picture frame or a casual throw. Blush looks especially great with gold accents, as shown in the living room below.

How To Create A Navy + White Bedroom

Navy and white is the perfect classic color combination for a modern coastal bedroom. The Pineapple Girls design team recently created this bedroom for a family beach house in Jupiter, Florida. We love the crisp look of this space!

As you know, the Pineapple Girls love blue and white. But there are so many shades of blue! This room is all about focusing on navy, and we love the look.

We started by adding shiplap to the walls and painting it a bright white. Shiplap is so current, and an easy way to add texture and visual interest to a space.

We found this beautiful navy and white fabric  to create a custom, upholstered headboard. If you are going to choose a bold fabric, make sure it is something you really love! We adore this fabric by Quadrille.

Adding a bit of metal breaks up all of the navy and white. The lamps add a metal element, as well as the side tables. These lamps have been very popular in our store..the navy part is actually leather!

A chevron navy and white striped rug adds contrast to the wood floors, and two velvet ottomans with lucite bases make a perfect bench at the foot of the bed.

We would love to see your navy and white spaces! Post them on social media and use the hashtag #PineappleGirls.

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.

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…

How To Mix and Match Fabrics In Your Coastal Home

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.

fullsizerender-27

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.

fullsizerender-28Think about mixing different textures and materials.  The Pineapple Girls love linen, linen/cotton blends, velvet and woven fabrics.  You can mix these materials in one room to add variety.

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.

How To Style A Console

One of our favorite pieces of furniture is the console.  It’s functional, versatile, and fun to style! Consoles are traditionally used in entryways, but work well in many other spaces. We love them in family rooms (under a mounted tv), behind sofas, in dining rooms, playrooms and even bedrooms.

console

The first thing to consider when choosing a console is the style you are going for in the space. Think about whether you want something modern, coastal or transitional. The Pineapple Girls have many favorites, from Coastal Fresh to Modern Organic …a console made of natural materials is truly something special.

There are a wide variety of styles and finishes for consoles. Some have shelves or drawers for storage, and others are open underneath, leaving the perfect spot for poufs or ottomans that can be pulled out for extra seating.   Consoles are made with many different materials, such as wood, lacquer, reclaimed wood, textured lacquer,  or metal and glass.

To style a console, first think about what will go on the wall above it.  Some great art or a mirror works well here.  Don’t hang the piece too high.  It should be hung 4″-6″ above the console.

Next, add a great pair of matching table lamps on either side.  There are so many great options for lighting today, so try going out of your comfort zone and choose some fun lamps that will make a statement in the room.

Between the lamps, you can add a low bowl, picture frames, a decorative box or a sculpture. Choose smaller items that scale with the lamps.  When choosing your decorative objects, keep it simple and classic.  You don’t want the console to be overly cluttered.

A few final tips: think about balance and symmetry when styling your console. Experiment with a few different looks and don’t be afraid to switch it up when you are ready for a change.
