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!

Get the Look: Cozy Furnished Patio

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

Fall has officially started, but there’s no need to bring all of your parties and celebrations indoors just yet. Create a warm, romantic and peaceful patio or entertaining space outdoors to soak up as much of the evening sun as possible with friends and loved ones before – dare we say it – snow arrives. Here is a little inspiration, and below, how you can get the look with home accents from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.

You will of course need seating. Our Wrought Iron Lattice Bench is the best option for weatherproof, durable and timeless outdoor seating, and as you can see in the image above, comfort is added with throw blankets and pillows (Teak furniture is another great option).

You can choose to show off the buffalo check or decorative style of your bench cushion, or tuck coordinating throws around it, providing additional coziness and a way to stay warm on chillier nights.

Vintage Tin Lantern Accent LightBuffalo Check ThrowFor lighting (in addition to a warm fire), outdoor candles or lanterns will create a soft glow and add decorative appeal to the space. Our Vintage Tin Lantern Light is made specifically for the outdoors, and even has a timer so you don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn it off. You could also turn your Mason jars into accent lights with a Solar LED cover that will fit any standard opening.

So pick a seat, enjoy the comforts of these functional and decorative [outdoor] home accents, and gather together with friends and family outdoors this fall!
