Decorating with Color: Pastels

Thursday, April 12th, 2018

Pastels are fun to play with in the springtime, especially since almost every color has a pastel hue. Below we’ve featured a few ways you can incorporate soft colors into your home seasonally or permanently.

In the Kitchen

We love the look of pastels in the kitchen. You can go as drastic as painting all of your cabinets in a pastel hue, or coordinating countertop appliances in a pastel color (or multiple!). If you alike open shelving, opt for some decorative pastel dishware to display during the springtime.

Dining Room Whimsy

While we would prefer one or maybe two colors, we think these pastel dining room chairs add a fun atmosphere to the space. Even on vintage chairs, pastel yellows or blues would give any dining area a youthful cottage look.

Different Living Room Looks

For a less permanent pastel display, switch out accent pillows, curtains, throw blankets and perhaps a rug this spring with those decorated in pastels. Or, if you’re feeling like committing fully to the soft pastel look, change your furniture and be in a cheerful, spring mood all year long.

Bed and Bath

The bathroom is possibly the best room to decorate in pastels all year long. These tranquil hues – on the walls, in tiles and in the decor – are perfect for getting a spa-like feel every time you step inside. Soft colors are also great for a bedroom; because pastels aren’t very bright or bold, your bedroom can be the soothing space it should be.

Our two new lace curtain collections are Pineapple Crushed Lace and Garden Birds Lace. Both are offered in two classic, neutral colors; both will bring a warm, welcoming feel to any room; and both are made in the USA.

The Pineapple Crushed Lace complements a variety of solid colored curtain panels, as well as our Gold Pineapple Curtains. You may recognize the pattern on the Garden Birds Lace Valance, as we carry a coordinating Table Runner, and also new to spring, two more tabletop accents.

Our newest cotton curtain collection is decorated with elegant jacobean in earthy, natural colors. The Coburn Curtains are made in the USA and have a luxurious weight fit for any season.

Both the Signs of Spring and Grandview Curtain Collections are crafted from easy-care polyester fabric; the former offers seasonal whimsy while the latter (available in six colors) gives any room a stately, timeless look.

All three make charming statement of their own, but can certainly be paired up with lace curtains for a deeper, layered look on any window.

In the case of the Grandview Curtains, you could also carry the same fabric throughout your home in different colors to match each room’s style while maintaining a complementary look.

Monday Must-Haves: New Web Exclusive Home Accents

Monday, February 12th, 2018

The web exclusive section of our website is a great place to browse home accents that complement those in our catalog, and the selection of these exclusive prints, furniture, accessories and other decor is updated quite often to give you perpetually fresh home furnishings each catalog season. For this week’s Must-Have list, we’re featuring five of our newest web exclusives, but be sure to check out all the rest by clicking here.

Made in the USA

This web exclusive magnet board is also the newest addition to our Rustic Country Collection. Available in all nine colors and framed with the same pine lumber of the benches, cabinets and other RCC home accents, this magnet board will help keep you organized and keep your home complementary.

Also made in the USA is the Jasmine Bar Soap featuring artwork by Stephen Huneck (this print and this print). The fragrant, soothing bar soap is handcrafted out of all natural ingredients and makes a nice gift for a hostess or friend.

Inspired by Nature

One of our newest coir doormats is perfect for winter; a leafless forest provides a home for deer painted in a rusty red color to pop against the gray background, brown trees and white snowflakes. This home accent combines modern simplicity with rustic, natural inspiration and timeless function.

Our Bear Foot Rest has always been a big hit, so we’ve added a few more animal foot stools to our collection, including this charming moose. Perfect for camp, a Father’s Day gift or for complementing rustic, primitive decor, this foot rest provides both comfort and style.

Functional Felines

We introduced a few of our whimsical cat kitchen accents in our Winter 2018 catalog (page 18), but a few went right to our website. Including our Black Cat Waiter’s Corkscrew, which is shaped like a cat for charming appeal. You’ll smile every time you open a bottle of wine with this accessory, and
not just because of the wine.
