Coastal Layers with Tide Hill Home

Coastal Layers with Tide Hill Home

This week, I had that moment. The moment when you realize there are only about 3 weeks until school starts again. So, I’ve been on a cleaning and organizing bender. We get a little shall I say relaxed in the summertime. We spend so much time outdoors that my home isn’t always at its best inside. I keep up on the stuff that needs to get done, but it’s not school year ready if you know what I mean!

Living here in Connecticut, the coastal charm is everywhere. Every time we visit somewhere new, we usually end up with a nautical trinket or two for a memento. I don’t know about you, but for me, travel purchases always end up being my favorite pieces. I love adding a few coastal touches to our home.

When we moved to Connecticut, we knew what we wanted in a house and we found a fixer that checked off a lot of our boxes. We’ve been making it a home for a couple of years now and have so much left to tackle, but we really love our colonial. It just so happens that working in these coastal pieces is pretty easy when you have traditional bones to work with.

When I see school on the calendar, I also start thinking about warming things up in my interiors. Layering in some throws for the cooler mornings on the porch. Things like that. I am loving my new throw blanket from Tide Hill Home. It’s lightweight and really soft. A perfect throw to use in the summer and early fall. It has a coastal vibe to it too which I love.

Here’s a few tweaks I made in our living room after the cleaning and organizing mania subsided!

I love to support companies who make quality products and give back. Tide Hill Home gives 10% from every blanket purchase to Restore America’s Estuaries.

Now…one room down…only the rest of the house to go!

Until next time,
