John Robshaw is one of our favorite designers. While traveling in India, Robshaw fell in love with the fabric-making traditions of the local artisans. The hands-on immediacy and vitality of textiles piqued what was to become a lifelong fascination.
Robshaw’s forays in Asia have taken him all over the world. In India, John found that he could apply a painterly aesthetic to traditional methods by mixing up patterns and overlapping them in a more formally artistic way. His signature look was crafted: an updated spin on the exotic, handmade object; a vibrant mix of sophistication and romantic allure.

Thanks to our loyal customers at Pineapples, Palms, Etc., 2017 was truly a great year for us! We were honored to be featured in many publications, including a Nationwide 10-page feature in Traditional Home magazine, highlighting our design work and products. Blue and White was strong in 2017, and we still love the classic combination! Our coordinates glasses were one of our best selling gifts of the year. E-Design services were very popular, and we made many new friends from around the country, and were honored they trusted us to help them create their dream homes from a distance.
Traditional Home Magazine Feature
Blue + White
The Pineapple Girls love every shade of blue, but this crisp navy and white bedroom, created by our design team, was one of our most popular photos on social media last year.
2017 was a busy year for our e-design services! We have been working with clients all over the country by choosing art for their homes, accessorizing their shelves and tables, selecting perfect furniture, space planning and more. While it may sound difficult to design virtually, it is actually a fun and effective way to work with us. We just need a little information about you to begin the process of creating your dream home.
Love where you live? These coordinates glasses, hand engraved with the precise coordinates of your home, boat or favorite vacation spot are one of our favorite go-to gifts.
There is something as special about a personalized gift. We love these glasses for the holidays, housewarmings and weddings. Such a unique way to celebrate favorite locations that hold special memories for the recipient!
It’s the holiday season. A time to gather with family and friends. We love stools and poufs for extra seating when entertaining guests. These are so easy to tuck under a console or pull up to a coffee table. They also work well as side tables that do not take up much space. Add a decorative and practical element to any room!
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 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 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.
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.
