Minimalist Looks for Your Summer Mantel

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Minimal is master in these looks for summer. Save the over-the-top decorating for the holiday season and dress down your fireplace – you’ll likely be spending more time in your outdoor spaces, anyway.

Americana

This never has to be minimal, but on a mantel it can be key to achieving the charming look you want.
A simple print and plaque, or even just USA made rustic decor can create that traditional appeal.

Beach Vibes

For a more coastal cottage look, a cluster of shells and pretty rocks make the perfect mantel accent. Make it more personal by collecting the rocks on your next beach trip and displaying them with family photos.

Clean and Simple

Non-hanging wall art like the prints shown below add decorative appeal without going overboard. Think pictures of water, trees or even just blue and green abstract art. Lean them against the wall or
chimney for an even more relaxed feel.

Basics

If you don’t have a certain style in mind, you can never go wrong with the three classic decoratives:
candles, flowers and something on the wall (a print or mirror). Use summer flowers and a
summertime image to reflect the season.

Must-Have Summer Accents: USA Made Decor

Monday, May 15th, 2017

Violet Botanical PillowWe launched our summer catalog this weekend and to celebrate, we are featuring five new must-have home accents that are all made in the USA. Click each image for more information.

The Violet Botanical Pillow may be petite but it brings plenty of function to your home as a reversible  accent pillow, a small cushion for covered porch furniture, and its buckwheat fill allows it to be heated and function as a heating pad for aches and pains (Ivory also available).

Another comfy addition to a chair, sofa or bench is the Yellow Finches Throw Blanket. The larger than life imagery has been replicated from a watercolor painting by artist Sally Ayers, creating an aesthetically pleasing and cozy home accent.
