Decorating with Color: 2018 in Review

Thursday, December 20th, 2018

Since we are nearing the end of 2018, we are looking back at the blog posts we published this year. Last week, we reviewed our Get the Look posts from 2018, and this week it’s Decorating with Color’s turn. Decorating with Color is a series for which we choose a color scheme and curate photos of rooms and home decor featuring that color. We also offer up tips on how to incorporate that color into your own home, both seasonally and year round.

In October, we zeroed in on the gems that serve as birthstones for that month and featured pink rooms and pink furnishings. Our goal was to show how pink doesn’t have to be an intimidating color, especially in rustic homes, and we think we pulled it off.

August was all about yellow, and this post was fun, yet challenging to put together because of how great rustic and golden yellows look in homes – AKA, there are so many beautifully styled yellow rooms out there! We featured different rooms and furniture pieces to show that it is truly a color that can be used anywhere.

At the end of June we went patriotic, and focused on bringing together red, white and blue looks that could last past the Fourth of July. Americana lovers, this post is for you.

To celebrate spring we focused on cheerful greens in May, and like our yellow post, this one shows a variety of ways green can be used in a home.

Pastels took over in April, and we pulled images that either used multiple pastels or just one. Using a pastel in a big way can satisfy a need for subtlety, while still bringing plenty of color to a room.

We must have needed a brightening refresher in the snowy days of February, because during that month we featured red exteriors. From doors to porches, siding and barns, we think a splash of red can do any surface a lot of good.

Our first Decorating with Color post of 2018 was all about Pantone’s Color of the Year: Ultra Violet. This color is a bit trickier to use in a home, especially if you prefer muted tones or rustic hues. So we featured the color as an accent – on a wall, in a few throw pillows, a chair, and even a kitchen appliance (for our dream home, of course), and found that we really love purple accents outside.

Get the Look: 2018 in Review

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

Since we are nearing the end of 2018, we are looking back at the blog posts we published this year, starting with our Get the Look series. For this feature, we spotlight a photo of a room that aligns with our style and design preferences, and describe how you can get the look with decor from our catalog and website.

The common theme across all three 2018 Get the Look posts? Achieving coziness with simplicity. In Get the Look: A Primitive Cottage Bedroom, we talked about how personal touches can turn any room into a stunner, and that function is a great complement to form when details are given extra attention.

Get the Look: A Cozy, Country Covered Porch describes ways to make your porch (patio, outdoor seating area, etc.) an ideal space for chatting with friends or indulging in some alone time. By incorporating the correct (and minimal) lighting and seating for your lifestyle, the porch will be your favorite place to hang out.
