Monday, June 3rd, 2019

Our Summer 2019 catalog features many fun pillows, furniture made in the USA, and home accents for every room. Today we’re highlighting five home accents that fit in the latter category, plus, these must-haves are versatile, decorative and crafted out of eco-friendly jute fibers.

Trivets

It’s always a good idea to have a few trivets in the kitchen, but they are also handy throughout your home on end tables or a coffee table. Use them to protect surfaces from hot dishes and pans, whether you’re serving dinner for family or entertaining friends with a hot dip or appetizer.

The Blue Hydrangea Jute Trivet is an addition to the Blue Hydrangea Collection. Designed by artist Phyllis Stevens, this trivet brings the charm of a beautiful hydrangea blossom all year long.

A heart is formed on the Paw Prints Jute Trivet, both as a sweet image and expression of love for your family pets.

Thursday’s Theme: Sink Skirt Inspiration (and tutorials)

Thursday, April 25th, 2019

The sink skirt: a decorative and affordable way to hide unsightly pipes and under-the-counter storage space. It has apparently made a reappearance in home trends this year, although with many farmhouse and rustic home trends we often find ourselves thinking timeless decor never goes out of style! Anyway, we’ve rounded up a few lovely skirted sinks for inspiration, as well as three tutorials for making your own. Take a look below.

Tutorials

First up is Exquisitely Unremarkable’s sink skirt how-to. This one is unique because instead of removing cabinet doors under the sink, the skirt fabric is mounted to the doors. This technique is perfect if you prefer a swinging open over a sliding or velcro open, but still want that authentic skirted look.

Second is a velcro sink skirt from Life After Laundry. This particular one is made to be gathered, which gives the fabric a little more decorative appeal, but it could be left ungathered if you prefer. This tutorial is also a great reminder that skirted sinks aren’t just for the kitchen – they are perfect in a bathroom, too (around a pedestal or console sink, especially).

And third is the tension rod technique from HomeSpunStyle. This skirted sink requires a little more hardware but the result is worth it, especially if you opt for the pleats!

Inspiration

And here are some skirted sinks that caught our eye. If you’ve ever considered a sink skirt, or have one in your kitchen (or bathroom), let us know below and tell us how it has worked for you.

Decorating With Color: Pink

Thursday, October 11th, 2018

For this Decorating With Color post, we were inspired by October’s two birthstones: Opal and Tourmaline. Both stones are found in a variety of color combinations, but we’re focusing on the beautiful pink shades of each for the sake of this post.

Pink in home decor – especially in farmhouse or rustic home decor – can be a little daunting, especially if that color conjures up images of magenta and hot pink shades. Pink may not be a color we commonly associate with primitive style and hues, but below we’re featuring a few rooms that show how it can work.

All Around

Blush pink has certainly been having its moment. In the bedroom below, the blush pink is a few shades above white, so even though every wall is covered, it doesn’t feel overwhelming. Instead, it gives the room a soft, romantic look. The vertical shiplap combined with the cabinets offers aesthetically pleasing texture, which also gives the room more depth and interest than if the walls were completely flat (keep this in mind if you want to experiment with other colors, too).

Here and There…

In a room with one or two neutral colors, a pink accent here and there can have big stylistic impact. The ombre valance below, for example, really pops on the window of this mudroom/entry, giving this high-traffic area a touch of whimsy and complementary excitement.

…and Everywere

Like with any color, accents of the similar hue scattered around a room will create a cohesive look. The decorative plates, furniture, curtains and pillows below all feature a smattering of pink, which makes formal more fun.
