Monday Must-Haves: Everyday Function from Fall 2018

Monday, July 16th, 2018

Pleated Bronze Adjustable Floor Lamp | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopOur Fall 2018 catalog is now live, and if you’re not yet ready to flip through pages of Halloween and Harvest decor, don’t worry! There are still plenty of items that can be incorporated into your home all year long. Today we’re featuring five of those items, which are not only decorative but also offer every day function.

First is our Pleated Bronze Adjustable Floor Lamp. Three of the best things about this lamp are its decorative pleated shade; its adjustable functionality; and its sale price (Fall = Lighting Sale here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop). Not only does this lamp adjust vertically, but the arm also swivels so you can direct light where you need it. The 3-way bulb socket also means you can adjust the amount of lighting in a room.

Removable Tray Bar Cart | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopThe Home Magnet Board is a laser-cut home accent that is simple in design but highly functional in your home. The nine magnets are included so you can start organizing right away.

This next item is already a favorite among us here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. The Removable Tray Bar Cart is ideal for entertaining, but its multi-purpose potential gives it must-have quality. Both wood trays on the metal frame are removable, so you can easily serve guests or move food from the kitchen to another room. The wheels make it a breeze to move the entire cart, and they feature a locking mechanism that will sturdily hold this furnishing in place. The charming design makes it beautiful for displaying all year long, but since the trays are removable and the frame easily folds up, it’s a cinch to store, too.

What’s better than a rustic wood basket? Three of them! The three baskets shown below make up a set to give you more styling options in your home. Hang this Basket Trug Set up on a wall or place on a tabletop to hold fruit (liner recommended), flameless candles and collectibles within a centerpiece.

Last but certainly not least are the Black Cat Salt & Pepper Shakers. These whimsical kitchen accessories are perfect for any cat lover, and will decorate your table or countertops while offering extra seasoning for your meals. They also come in handy as a fun gift for a friend.

Decorating with Color: Red, White and Blue

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

Decorating your home in red, white and blue during the summertime is perfectly festive and seasonal, but if you want to incorporate these colors into your home all year long, here are some tips to do so.

American Flag Accents

The most obvious – and easiest – way to decorate with red, white and blue is to incorporate
American flag accents throughout your home. Pillows with flag imagery, blankets with the stars
and stripes
and even flags themselves are the best ways to do this.

Bold, Yet Classic

The below space offers a red, white and blue color palette that is much more bold than is typical
for these three colors. However, by using complementary and classic patterns – checks and stripes –
the room is tied together in colorful harmony.

Subtle, Yet Statement-Making

The room below is adorned in red, white and blue, but that isn’t necessarily where your mind went when you glanced at it. Using different neutrals along with the white, different shades of red and blues, as well as incorporating colorful furniture gives the room Americana charm while maintaining a more modern look.

All Americana

Did we save the best for last? We’ll let you decide that, but the final red, white and blue style for this
post is Americana. Differentiating from the more modern and subtle look above, true Americana is
more folk art and a lot more rustic. The color hues are toned down to offer a true country feel
which makes any room more cozy.
