Shopping guide: Laguna Beach's Tuvalu Home

Like most people right now, our little family is daydreaming about our first outing after the lockdown. What will we do? Where will we go? Whom will we see?

For us, it will be Laguna Beach. We will stroll around our favorite town, visit all the little shops we love and have missed so much and show them our support - in hopes that all of them still exist. Fingers crossed!

One of my favorite gems in Laguna Beach?

Tuvalu Home! A coastal/eclectic interior design store by founder, owner, and Laguna Beach native Laurie Alter that contains everything your spirited interior design heart desires. Tuvalu Home carries a variety of incredible brands, such as Palecek which offers unique furniture, lighting, and accessories, all made of renewable materials. Or Arteriors, another favorite brand of mine. Rarely have I seen such incredible statement lighting fixtures, made out of materials such as nautical ropes, metal, driftwood, or shells. My (literal!) Arteriors highlight? These Jarrod pendants that also come in white - simply gorgeous!

Indeed, Tuvalu's furniture and accessories are so elegantly, yet effortlessly, arranged, and displayed that all you end up wanting to do is move into this organic space this very second, just as it is.

Tuvalu Home offers so many choices in furniture, lighting, and accents that you are sure to find that one piece to perfectly complements your home.

We love their rugs (how gorgeous is this lush surya denali black area rug?), their eclectic pillows, or unique vases and candle holders. And how beautiful is this coconut shell mirror or this mosaic double dresser? True investment pieces that are sure to accompany you forever.

Tuvalu Home is also my go-to destination for gifts, whether it be a special coffee table book or a cool print. My favorite hostess gift? The Simpatico Ambergris bath soak salts. Unfortunately, these are not displayed on Tuvalu's website. So you may just have to go there in person but remember: once you are inside, it will be hard to leave.
