Weekly Spotlight: Summer Clearance Decor

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

It’s only fitting that our Fall/Halloween catalog launches this Friday, the 13th. That’s right, we are saying so long to Summer and hello to Autumn – as far as our catalog goes, anyway. You will still see some summer-related posts here on the blog, on Facebook and on Twitter, but it won’t be long before we’ve fully transitioned into the new season.

For these next two days, though, you can still get special savings on pillows and made in the USA home accents by visiting our website or submitting any last-minute orders over the phone. And for even more savings, browse our selection of clearance items; five of which we have featured below.

Decorating with Color: Red, White and Blue

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

Decorating your home in red, white and blue during the summertime is perfectly festive and seasonal, but if you want to incorporate these colors into your home all year long, here are some tips to do so.

American Flag Accents

The most obvious – and easiest – way to decorate with red, white and blue is to incorporate
American flag accents throughout your home. Pillows with flag imagery, blankets with the stars
and stripes
and even flags themselves are the best ways to do this.

Bold, Yet Classic

The below space offers a red, white and blue color palette that is much more bold than is typical
for these three colors. However, by using complementary and classic patterns – checks and stripes –
the room is tied together in colorful harmony.

Subtle, Yet Statement-Making

The room below is adorned in red, white and blue, but that isn’t necessarily where your mind went when you glanced at it. Using different neutrals along with the white, different shades of red and blues, as well as incorporating colorful furniture gives the room Americana charm while maintaining a more modern look.

All Americana

Did we save the best for last? We’ll let you decide that, but the final red, white and blue style for this
post is Americana. Differentiating from the more modern and subtle look above, true Americana is
more folk art and a lot more rustic. The color hues are toned down to offer a true country feel
which makes any room more cozy.
