Why Pineapple Hill?

The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies. According to legend, the symbol began with the sea captains of New England who would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside their home to let the community know of their safe return home and to invite friends to visit and share their hospitality.

Likewise, we hope Pineapple Hill Designs boutique will make you feel “Welcome”! We know how important it is to find something special for that certain someone or just the right accessory to complete a room. We believe everyday is a day to celebrate, and we have just the thing to help you create something special out of the ordinary.

I know in some parts of the country you're (you know how you are)patiently/ or not so- waiting for Spring to arrive.

If winter weather has you singing the blues, it’s time to add some color to your life~ with these 8 tips for bringing on spring.
I hope these ideas will lift your spirits!
  1. Place pots of forced spring bulbs (hyacinths, tulips, daffodils, crocuses) throughout the house.
  2. Swap curtains for white sheers.
  3. Dress your bed in pretty floral-patterned cotton linens. Add a pretty pillow.
  4. Ditch lipstick in favor of gloss with a hint of color, like peach.
  5. Opt for knits—just choose lightweight versions in citrusy colors.
  6. Carry a cute canvas or fabric bag. Instead of boring brown, add some color.
  7. Slip on a pair of floral flats .
  8. Put pretty-scented soaps in the bathroom.
