Coastal Inspired by Indigo Blue

Indigo Blue... alluding to a shipboard romance

The deep blue of stormy seas...

the inky blue-blackness of a moonlit night...

inspired by Pacific Coast found seashells...



What can I say?  I am crazy about the richness of Indigo Blue!  Here are ten rooms that I have been saving to show you all what I mean - what do you think? Could you try this look in your home?  Maybe just one wall? Or maybe just part of the wall?  We would so love to know!

All sources and links can be found on our Indigo Blue Pinterest Board - hop over there and take a peek!

Why do we LOVE Coastal Pillows?

Why do we LOVE Coastal throw Pillows? 

Let me count the ways - How about 9 for starters? 

1. The number ONE reason we love pillows is that they instantly show off your love of beach life!

2.  Decorative throw pillows can completely change the look of your indoor or outdoor rooms without having to switch out your furniture or replace an expensive rug. Perfect for a new look after you have taken down all of the holiday decorations and your room is looking a little bare and cold. Add back fresh life and color while the grey winter days are outside.  Easy fix!

3. Add elegance to a room with coastal pillows that spell luxury and richness - look for embossing, embroidery or hand-beading. Your room can be instantly transformed.  Seriously. The tone in your living space will reflect your excellent taste and will make your "old" sofa or favorite comfy chair into something completely different. Trust me.

4. Need a room refresh as the seasons change? Add bold bright seaside colors for spring and summer, and then hide those pillows for fall when its' time to layer in warmer tones and warmer fabrics. You will never be bored with your space!   Or go with classic navy blue and white - can never miss with this nautical-coastal color combination - Here are a few new ones that we just added for spring. 

5. Not sure that you want to completely change the look of your coastal room? Pillows are the perfect way to experiment with your decorating scheme. Try on a new color or a new design - you never know where you might find inspiration!

Love this Bay Island Coral Branch Pillow because there are so many coastal colors in it, that it coordinates so well with many "beach home" looks and styles. 

6. Decorative throw pillows are affordable "little works of art" to add to your home. Try a new color, embroidery, beading, texture, a crazy design - go bold, it's only a pillow, not your whole room.

7. Easy to be a little "daring" with a decorative nautical pillow while keeping the rest of your room neutral. 
8. Punch up a boring beach bedroom with layers of pillows to make your guest room instantly a "retreat" space! Your beach home guests will be so impressed and will feel so welcomed. (and if you live at the beach - you always have guests...)

9. Want a little piece of our best advice? Look for throw pillows that can withstand the rigors of life at the beach.  You know what I mean; salt air, salt water, sandy fingers, dogs, and sunlight damage. Look for indoor-outdoor fabrics, washable fabrics and pillows that have zippers to make cleaning and changing out your inserts easier. 

P.S. We have SO many choices - check our Indoor-Outdoor Collections. NOT Only for outdoors,  but perfect for beach living durability!

Not sure about all of you, but I am ready for spring and it's barely January....

Wrap Up at Sunset - Introducing New Cuddle-Worthy Throws

Nicole (one of our fab employees!) took these amazing beach sunset images to show off how soft and cuddly our new Silky Fleece Beach throws are. But the pictures turned out so incredible of our Moss Beach, California location - we had to share them with all of you.   

Plus we had a little help from Stella! (our newest model!)

Pics all taken at Fitzgerald Marine Reserve Park - about 25 minutes south of San Francisco on Hwy 1, and about 15 minutes north of Half Moon Bay.  

A wonderful protected beach location perfect for exploring tide pools full of urchins, starfish, periwinkles, limpets and so many other tiny sea creatures. If you're lucky, you might even get to catch a glimpse of a harbor seal or a sea lion lounging on the flat rock formations. If you are REALLY lucky, you might even get to see the blows from passing humpback or grey whales!

Still can't believe that we actually get to live here...

Stella was definitely a trouper! And I think she has a new favorite super soft throw to wrap up in when her mom makes her take California sunset pics for us.... lol

Relax and Live at the Beach Every Day of the Year!
