Coastal Kitchen Design - Mahopack, New York

Posted by on

Coastal Home Design by Ocean Blu Designs, Long Island NY - www.oceanbludesigns.com

In the summers, New Yorkers travel north to Mahopack. They use it as their get away spot. It's definitely a place to vacation on the weekend and escape the hectic life of New York City and the socialites who go to the Hamptons. 

One of our clients now call it home with a lake view. Trying to capture the resort feeling, we went with light coastal color tones and clean sleek Hampton style cabinetry and lighting. 

We hope you can pick up a few ideas for your dream kitchen or renovation. We are always available for consultations. Give us a call if you'd like to speak with one of our designers. 

For those looking for inspiration and decor ideas, don't forget to take a look out the window to get a glimpse of their amazing lake view only found some miles north of the 'Big Apple'. 

Now if we can only get them to let us visit for the weekend!

Design Ideas for your Summer Pool Patio or Deck

Posted by on

Coastal Patio Decor Ideas_found on OceanBluDesigns.com

Every summer it always feels like a fresh start for the warm season where everyone salvages what patio furniture survived through the winter, but with just a few fresh touches, you can have long use with your current deck furniture, you just need to add a few special touches to what is around it. 

You might have a fabulous picnic table or dining table for all your outdoor entertaining, just add a new plant like our fresh orchids from our local farmers market or I've seen them at Costco's as well. 

Add a few fresh pillows, or give your past season pillows new life with a wash. Check to see if your pillows have a hidden zipper, you can pull them off easily for a warm wash. 

Pillows, check! Plants, check! 

Now add a few ambience candles to set a fun mood with your guests. A tip: pay attention to your surprise guests - little critters living around your yard and maybe a chance of a toddling guest around, we advise keeping your pillar and tea light candles in lanterns which add a special coastal touch to our Long Island, New York homes. The more the merrier by placing one large candle lantern next to a medium or smaller sized one. Voila! Easy glam. 

Its still not too late to add these touches to your collection, best part, is that the summer sales are happening and you can find them at great prices now. If you like the ones that you see in our blog post, check out our lantern section online.

Celebrity Designer Thom Filicia's Coastal Accent Pillows

Posted by on

A design from Thom Filicia - this versatile accent pillow can bring your interior design together.
Adding quick designer looks can be as easy as knowing where to shop. Most home decor designs can be found bundled up into a complete look collection so you won't have to shop far or too hard to get a cohesive look when shopping for your next design room inspiration. 
So, tip #1 when looking for anything for a quick re-design of your bedroom, living room or even dining room, look for a collection that overall matches the look you want to achieve. Here we have Celebrity Designer Thom Filicia's bedroom collection that would fit any coastal inspired home bedroom. Pick and choose your favorite larger color options (like linens etc), then add on the smaller accessories like these pillows below. 
When you shop, always remember you don't have to match or get all the same colors and textures. We hope you can layer with the same color family. For example, light blues pieces with darker navy blue colors, but in different textures and fabrics. Or maybe try complimentary colors of warm golds and dark sage greens with a hint of orange. Remember, the options are all yours. Have fun with it. If you're happy with it, you'll be happy with it for a long time!
