How To Style A Console

The console is one of the most versatile pieces of furniture in your home. When styling a console you should consider what room it will be in, and how you need it to function. The most popular spaces are foyers, dining rooms & under TV’s in a family room, or bedroom.

Balance and scale are very important. We like a large piece of art or mirror hung over the console. A common mistake is to hang the art too high. It’s important to hang your art close to the console to avoid seeing a lot of blank wall space between the two.
Consoles look great with a pair of tall lamps, or hurricanes flanking each side to add height. A lower decorative bowl, or large piece of coral in the middle looks amazing! A stack of books add interest as well. We like larger pieces to reduce the clutter, and give more importance to the space.

Highlights From 2017

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.

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.

E-Design

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.

Stool Roundup: Fresh Ways To Add Extra Seating To Your Home

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!

Fall Favorites

The cooler temperatures make us think of apple picking, cozy throw blankets, crisp white pumpkins and stick lanterns. Fall is definitely about cozy! Try adding some soft throw blankets or new throw pillows to your space for a whole new look.

As we have mentioned, we love a simple centerpiece of white pumpkins and antlers, with an organic tray or bowl.

Here is a yummy Fall recipe, right from the Pineapple Girls’ kitchen! This dessert is always a crowd pleaser.

Apple Dapple Cake

1 1/2 cups oil
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts
3 cups diced apples

 

Icing:
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup milk

Mix oil and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Sift together flour, salt and soda. Mix into eggs. Add nuts and apples and mix by hand. Bake into greased and floured bundt pan for 1 hour and 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and pour icing over cake in pan.

Cool in pan for at least 2 hours.

{While cake is baking, bring all icing ingredients to a boil and boil for 1. 5 minutes. }
