Paint & Pillows

It sure feels like Spring around here which means cleaning , organizing, and projects! The front of the house got a little face lift with black faux shutters added to the windows and fresh paint to the front door.

Door Before

And After

Since painting the door red the living color pallet seemed a little off to me. I found this painting that had nice coastal hues and red tones so I used it as a base for accent colors. We are forgoing Santa Cruz season passes this year but I can enjoy the Coastal vibes in my everyday decor.

I purchased a few pillow sets for the couches. A coral set for this couch and light sea blue for the other tan couch ( not pictured).

 The mandala pillow is from Ross at a sale price of $2.45 and little one a slip cover for 99 cents from the Goodwill.

 A few more additions to what I call my "Cali Coastal Vibe". I love this hanging planter for our Wandering Jew plant. I felt a money tree would be a nice addition to our red door and I just realized we did this the weekend of Chinese New Year and I'm a Lucky Fire Monkey. Talk about synchronicity. The VW van beach print is from my recent thrifting trip. Say hello to our new member of the family "Frankie Blue" short for Frankenstein the blue beta.

 I wish everyone a Valentine's weekend full of love.


  1. Holly, there's just something about your home décor that makes me smile. First of all, I noticed the red van that I didn't get at Ross (wish I did), and I love that pillow that you found there too. Your red door is charming. They just painted my mom's door red, and it looks nice. That hanging plant is cool, love the blue pot! Your home is cozy and it says "welcome" to me.

    Happy Valentine's Day, Holly.

    love, ~Sheri

    1. Oh, forgot to mention.....when I was at the mall, I went into Icing and saw a picture with the word 'NAMASTE' written on it along with a few other words. I thought of you, and wanted to let you know to check it out if you ever go in there. :)

  2. I LOVE your red door. Then again, I'm completely biased when it comes to my love for all red things.

    Your "Cali Coastal Vibe" is making me wonder why I have never created a "Tropical Dominican Corner" or something like that. I might have to copy your idea. ;-)

    Happy Valentine's Day to you! ♥

  3. It does feel nice to give the house a periodic seasonal make over! we have a very small house, but just changing the sofa cover, and taking away (or putting out) the wool rugs makes a difference.
    Love your red door!
