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.

Coordinates Glasses

Coordinates Glasses were definitely one of our hottest gifts of 2017! Our popular stemless wines are now available in Riedel crystal. In addition, we offer On the Rocks and Beer Pilsner glasses which can be customized with the exact coordinates of a home, boat or favorite vacation spot! Perfect for a wedding gift, housewarming or any special occasion.

 

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.

Happy New Year from The Pineapple Girls!

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Anatomy of a Cozy Bedroom Design

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.

20 Throw Pillows For Your Coastal Home

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:

How To Choose Artwork For Your Coastal Home

Art is a great way to express yourself and give a space personality. The right piece of artwork can transform a space. When choosing a piece of art for your home, think about the following:

  1. Mood: Think about what mood you want to create. Perhaps you want a relaxing and comfortable space, something more sophisticated, or a buttoned-up, formal look.
  2. Space: What look do you want?  Transitional? Something modern? Or coastal and clean?
  3. Location: Look at your walls and furniture and decide where the art will be placed. Popular locations for artwork are over a sofa, bed or console. Think about whether you want one large piece of art or a grouping of smaller pieces.

When choosing artwork for your home, think about what style you want to achieve. Do you like landscapes, abstract or soft watercolors?  Photography, shadowbox art or paintings? For a coastal look, consider using art that features organic, natural elements like the art in the photo below.

The Pineapple Girls love using whites, blues and seaglass hues in the coastal homes we design. Crisp, white slipcovered furniture and white accessories can act as great canvas, and art is placed to add some color.

Finally, when hanging your art, make sure to hang it in a comfortable spot, where the art is eye-level. One of the biggest mistakes people make when hanging art is to hang it too high. A general rule is to hang the art so that the middle of the piece is at 57″ high.

Decorating With Trays

The Pineapple Girls love trays. They are functional, and great for organizing personal objects but can also add a nice pop of color and style to a space.

There are so many options for tray decor. We love them on a coffee table, a bedside table or even in your foyer by the entrance to your home.  A great way to reduce clutter, trays are perfect for storing magazines, keys and small decorative objects.

aerin-lifestyle-framesUtilizing an ottoman instead of a coffee table is very popular, but where do you put your drink?  A beautiful tray does the trick!

Trays can also be used for serving at a casual or formal gathering. A stylish tray can can serve as a quick and portable bar, just by adding some cute beverage napkins, a bottle of wine and cocktail glasses.

We adore these printed trays by one of our favorite brands, AERIN.  Aerin Lauder is a granddaughter of Estée Lauder. Aerin spent 25 years working for the family beauty business before introducing Aerin, her own beauty, home and luxury lifestyle label, in 2012. Her products are true luxury, and we love having them as part of our collection.

We are also in love with these easily customizable lucite trays. We’ve added a custom fabric to create a design element in the photo below. You can also proudly display your favorite photo. It’s so easy to change your photo, fabric or wallpaper anytime! To change the photo, fabric or wallpaper just separate second backing from magnets.
