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.

Monday Must-Haves: Spring 2018 Curtains

Monday, February 26th, 2018

Spring is in the air at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, which means our entire catalog is on sale and you can get free shipping on curtains! For this week’s Must-Haves, we’re featuring our five newest curtain collections to show you how you can freshen up your window treatments this season.

Garden Birds Lace Valance | Curtain Collections | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopLace

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.

Signs Of Spring Curtain Collection | Curtains | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopCotton & Polyester

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.
