Decorating With Color: Everyday Orange

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

Orange creates a warm, cheerful look during the fall season, but it can also be a welcoming presence throughout the year. Below we feature some ways in which you can incorporate this color into your own home stylishly and uniquely.

An orange door – interior or exterior – makes a bright statement without overpowering
a room. For an airier look, paint a multi-paned door a bold orange color; the glass will
break it up enough so it’s not too overwhelming.

If you want to try a bold entryway or have some storage space that could be reinvigorated,
go orange! It may give you the extra boost you need as you head out the door,
or serve as a fun accent piece while providing function to you and your family.

Whether you have a window seat in your home or not, you can still add orange pillows or a throw
to any seating area to brighten it up. Or, go orange on your window treatments with luxurious fabric
for a regal, not tacky, look. Mix in other warm colors like yellow and red for a multi-dimensional feel.

Your kitchen island is another great place to add some orange, as it will add color and spice
to one of your favorite rooms in the house. If you are without an island or don’t feel like making
such a big transformation, opt for orange accessories and countertop storage solutions.

We couldn’t end the post without some orange staple furniture! The orange of these
couches and ottoman beautifully reflect all the light pouring into this room, creating a
whimsical yet grounded look among all the wood and rustic home accents. Broken up by
neutral burlap pillows, this furniture breathes life into the room without being too dramatic.

As you can see, orange doesn’t just have to be the bright, almost neon color that may come instantly to mind. Experiment with red-oranges, pale oranges, yellow-oranges and burnt orange and tell us how you’ve made it work!

Quick Tip: Change the Curtains

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

Ever heard of the saying “Change the curtains, change a room, change your life”? Okay, maybe we made that up but it does hold true. Even the smallest change of curtains – from a bold print to a soft pattern; loud colors to muted or neutral tones – can transform a room and freshen it up for a new season or special occasion. Take, for example, this space with our Benton Recliner in Paisley.

The large jacobean on our Caroline Curtains complements the large pattern on the chair. Our Juliet Panels feature more romantic hues that tone down the pattern for a soft look. The Victoria Panels offer a traditional color tone and flowers that enhances the naturally timeless look of the upholstered chair. Finally, the Dotted Blackout Curtain Panels in Natural gives the space a warm, neutral look and makes the Benton Recliner the center of attention.

To make redecorating a little easier, we are offering free shipping on select curtains all spring long. Click here for more information.
