Refresh the Nest for Spring!

Spring is here!  And we can’t be happier to open the house to fresh air and fresh style.  Time to throw out the old and bring in the new, call it Spring Cleaning- we want fresh, crisp and bright!!!!! 

First start with letting the light in!  Window treatments are the first thing to date a room.   Heavy draperies can take away from the clean lines of the window and block out the fresh sunshine of Spring.

We are loving the natural fiber roman shade, either go light or rich natural fiber to frame the window, block out light when you don’t want it and for privacy, without taking away from the beautiful architecture of the room.

Hobbled or plaid Romans are timeless, done in a natural fiber adds a depth as textural element but keeps the look crisp.

Next, tackle the floors! Nothing gives a space an instant face lift like new flooring.  Pull up that old carpet, peel out that old linoleum and roll out new carpet or LVT.   

LVT- Luxury Vinyl Tile- is an incredible product to get the look of a wood floor without breaking the bank or worrying about water.

Natural looks, beautiful textures and rich tones- this product is an easy way to transform a space and keep it bright and clean.

 

We’ve let in the light, we’ve cleaned the floors time to add an accent!  Add a pop of color to bring in the colors of the season and add a new seat to change up your layout.

Try a bolder pattern than you’re used to, a more vibrant color, anything to pack a punch and make your room come alive.  It’s Spring after all, everything begins again.

 

 

 

Last but certainly not least: tackle the lumpy old mattress! Out with that sad old thing and in with the new improved TempurPedic.   The best nights sleep you will get the industry’s leading mattress is our first recommendation.

Don’t forget the pillows, too. One to fit everyone and completely transform the way you sleep!

 

 

 

 

Happy Spring!

Time to Reflect…on Our Favorite Mirrors!!

Mirror mirror on the wall…we want them all!  Mirrors are one of our favorite accessories and there are a ton of great options in every shape, size and style.

We talk a lot about accessories on this blog because they are often overlooked as minor elements by our clients who are focused on the bigger pieces but the small details are just as important to make a room work.

Mirrors are no exception- so we decided to put the spotlight on our Top 5 Picks!

  1. Venetian Floor Mirror 

In a wire brushed recycled south pine in a smoked gray finish, this floor mirror is a show stopper!  A punch of drama, this piece will create  an architectural statement in any space.

2. Foliage Mirror 

Layered leaves in distressed silver this circular mirror is a perfect to hang over an entry table- a bit of nature and bit of sparkle!

3. O’Tallay Accent Mirror

A perfect combination of antiqued galvanized metal with bronze-tone weathered edging this industrial mirror is easy to incorporate into any space and adds a perfect dash of metallic!

4. Stag Horn Mirror 

An absolute MUST have for a rustic home! This Stag Horn Mirror is fun, unique and interesting.  Metallic silver with brown and ivory antlers this mirror is sure to be noticed!!

5. Fanchon Rounds

Why settle for one when two will do!  These bevel led and aged turquoise beveled mirrors are great as part of a series, they add color, dept and a metallic dash.

There are so many more mirrors, for ideas that will be perfect for you space, come see us!

Our Top Five Nightstands!

The rules are there are no rules.  Especially when it comes to a “matched set” bedroom.  When designing a bedroom we like to mix and match collections and look for unique pieces that while coordinating, aren’t matching.  It keeps the space interesting and is a great opportunity to add a personal touch to make a room unique.

The main focal point of a bedroom is the bed and storage is a priority so dressers and chests are next on the to-do list which brings ups to the last, but certainly not the least: the nightstand.  It’s often over looked but it’s certainly a huge part of the picture.  An afterthought no more we are showcasing our Top Five Nightstands!

 

 

 

Top Five Nightstands:

  1. The Currated nightstand, gray and parchment finish, this stand offers storage and the metal legs keep it open and light.  Combine this with a metal, wood, or upholstered headboard and it will update any bedroom.

2. The Transcend nightstand is an absolute favorite!  We love the whole collection, but the nightstand alone is a showstopper!  Lived edge Acaia wood coupled with a metallic base, clean hardware-less drawers and open shelves meets all storage needs.

3. And since there are no rules…a nightstand doesn’t have to be a nightstand: the Marxim end table is a great option for a light and airy table.  When no storage is needed, geometric tables flanking the bed are a great option to add interest.

4. Stump Tables are an absolute MUST for a chic rustic bedroom.  Each is organic in shape and size these are true one-of-a-kind accents!!  One either side of a metal or barn wood bed these stumps will be a perfect punch of rustic!

5.  This E-table is fabulous!  Great shelves for displaying or storing, this chunky table is cool from every angle.  Next to any style bed, these tables will be an awesome accent!

As always, every room is different and every bed needs it’s own accent!  For ideas to best compliment your bed, stop in and see us!

3…2…1…Bench Seat!!

Let’s talk numbers.  Of cushions that is.  We do a lot of cushion-counting.  People often equate a cushion with a seat.  One cushion one spot for a bum.  Not anymore!

We are noticing a trend toward the bench cushion, one long cushion that extends from one arm of the sofa to another.  It is clean, crisp and comfy!

The Drake by King Hickory shown to the left with a Bench Seat, is also available as a standard 3 seat or 2 seat sofa; however, we are finding the Bench Seat is trending!

 

 

 

 

 

 

See the same frame three ways:

Three cushions is more ‘standard,’ two a comfy look but we are just loving the bench!

The Bench Seat look is popular with more modular seating designs.  The Chill collection by Younger Furniture has just arrived in our showroom and we LOVE it!  Shown below with two arm-less sofas, the Chill has deep down cushions piled with pillows for a casual clean look and ample seating.  

Where the Chill is a more modern frame, the Georgia Rain shown below, is a wood based frame with a cutout fretwork design- a warm, rustic take on the Bench Seat.

Or go slip-covered!
The Lindsey is a classic look with easy to clean slip covers for a causal, cottage style.  The Bench Seat keeps it up-to-date!

For the best way to bring a bench seat into your home- let us find the frame for you!

It’s Here! Trisha Yearwood’s Home Collection

Trisha Yearwood’s Home Collection by Klaussner has just arrived and we are loving it!!  Her collection combines classic charm with contemporary flare.

The Tifton sofa above, shown in a crisp white with a contrast welt styled with her Ginko occasional group and sleek Lynn chair speaks to her “keep it simple philosophy.”

Go Green in 2017!!

Green in all it’s glory is 2017’s Pantone Color of the Year!  Greenery is, as Pantone puts it: “Nature’s Neutral” and a way to reconnect with nature. We are loving Greenery and all the green tones this season: these are some of our favorites!

 

Rachael Ray’s new collection from Craftmaster uses a bold lime green print to add a punch to this group on a clean lined wing chair and echoed in throw pillows this line up uses the color of the year for a zesty pop!

Throw Pillows are a great way to be on trend but not completely overhaul the room.  Use a neutral white back drop and incorporate your favorite hue to add green in your own way!

Take on Greenery’s dramatic cousin Emerald!  A high wing chair with in Emerald Velvet with pillows to match take this classic room into 2017!

Or if you want to take on Green for years to come, go big and take on the whole sofa!  This Flexsteel sofa to the left, in a muted green tackles the 2017 color of the year and accents with throw pillows and pops of green in wall art tie the whole look together.  Or tackle the walls!  Bold green with crisp white trim like the room below is the look for 2017!!

Our favorite way to go Green in 2017 is of course with nature it’s self! Florals and plants add a burst of freshness to any space.  Ring in this years color of the year, Greenery- nature’s neutral- with nature itself!

Happy New Year!
