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. }

Navy with Lemon Accents

We love Celerie Kemble’s richly textured and delicately feminine line of decorative bedding and other soft home furnishings. Drawing from her Palm Beach upbringing and high-society Manhattan sensibilities, Kemble has created a sophisticated and beautifully livable line.

We are blue and white lovers for sure, but adding yellow to the mix is really fun!   These Celerie Kemble Lemon Pillows add just the right amount of  pop!

Artisan Profile: Grant Tankoos

Grant Tankoos is the founder of Soundview Millwork, based in Darien, Connecticut. The company is  dedicated to crafting “fine and custom wood products for land and sea.”

We love their appetizer boards, and they are extremely popular at Pineapples, Palms, Etc. The boards are completely customizable. Everything from the types of handles to the text or artwork on the board can be personalized. They can be used for cheese, appetizers, steaks or as traditional cutting boards.

Grant Tankoos launched the company in 2008. From the start, Tankoos, who loves boating wanted to “create a really great nautically inspired gift.”

Grant’s father came up with the idea to personalize the boards, and 90% of their products are customized.

The cutting boards are crafted out of American hard maple and Santos mahogany from South America.

All of the products are made in America. When they first started, they were making boards from scrap lumber in the garage of Tankoo’s dad, reclaiming oak and Maple from pallets and construction sites. The company takes great pride in the fact that all of their pieces are still hand made in the USA and stand behind their product 100%.

The finishing process and product preparation is unlike any other – each part and board is inspected through the many phases of the production and finishing process.  They start with the finest American maple and Santos mahogany – both known for their durability and tight grain pattern. For the finishing process they first dampen the board, causing the grain pattern to raise. Once dried, they hand sand the boards and apply 3 coats of mineral oil to the boards, fully saturating the pores and protecting them from staining, moisture, bacteria, etc.

 

We love these boards and are proud to carry them as part of our collection at Pineapples, Palms, Etc.!

 

 

 

 

 

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.
