Three Classic Living Room Looks

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

Being comfortable in any room in your home can have a lot to do with the decor you complement it with. Stylish home accents speak to your tastes and lifestyle, and make excellent aesthetic and emotional impressions on family members as well as guests, especially when you integrate personal heirlooms and treasured collectibles. As a frequently used room, the living room can tie an entire home together, or stand out among other decorating styles while offering comfort and functionality to your family throughout the year. Three classic looks stick out in our minds the most, for their timeless qualities and welcoming atmospheres, as well as the ease with which you can alternate between them with just a swap of curtains and a rug or an accent pillow.

Casual Country

Solid colored furniture, nature-inspired hues and durable materials; simple decor that emanates outdoor charm and a cozy, decorative area rug on the floor completes the casual country look. An airy, lightweight curtain offers stunning window appeal and an opportunity to take in the outside view.
*
Rich and Rustic
Similar to casual country, a rich and rustic living room highlights more rich, darker tones of wood and furniture. Greens, dark browns rusty reds and muted naturals fill the room with log cabin charm, and are complemented by slightly whimsical decor that is primitive in design. Braided rugs are the ideal choice for the floor of this living room, as layered curtains with intricate, forested detailing are for the windows.
*
Sweet Elegance
a
A room that speaks for itself. Pinks and rosy hues give a living room sweetness, while curved iron accents and printed furniture add touches of elegance. Sweeping curtains with embroidered details give a worldly look, transforming your home into a regal destination. Black and white against the bright colors tone down the statement to keep it in line with your lifestyle while enhancing the classic look.

Monday Must-Haves: Prepared for Winter

Monday, January 18th, 2016

Snowy Barn DoormatWe hope you’re enjoying our winter catalog, even if you are not enjoying winter, and are finding just what you need to add more beauty to your home. This week, our five must-haves are items you may not know you need until you need them; we’re here to help you prepare!

Our Snowy Barn Doormat is designed by Billy Jacobs, in the style of his New Fallen Snow image. Depending on the wear of your current doormat, or your need for one at the backdoor or maybe even in the garage, this will make a beautiful statement as a replacement or as an addition to your outdoor winter decor. Of course, it will also keep mud, rain and snow from being tracked throughout your home, while keeping a front porch or back patio seasonally decorated.

Eating Like A Pig SculptureWe know collectible-enthusiasts are always looking for ways to add to collections and perhaps use a new item as inspiration to reorganize treasured sculptures. Our new Eating Like a Pig Sculpture is a charming addition to a bookshelf, end table or mantel that boasts cheerful colors and sunny characters crafted by the Williraye Studio™. Display it as a reminder of gardening and greenery throughout the winter, or save as a gift for a loved one on a special occasion.

Blacksmith Candle Snuffer

We are lovers of flameless candles, but we also know that sometimes nothing beats a warm, flickering scented candle on a cozy winter’s night or during a quiet, snowy morning. When you are ready to put it out, however, do it in a way that will preserve the wick of the candle, and therefore the life of the candle. Our hand-forged iron Blacksmith Candle Snuffer will safely extinguish any candle and present itself decoratively as your candle burns. The turned stem is long enough to keep your hand safe, and its textured exterior gives off an antiqued look for added charm on a mantel in a family room or shelf in your kitchen.

Lavender Hand BalmAnother item great to keep on hand in the kitchen, a bathroom or on your bedside table is made for your hands: all-natural Lavender Hand Balm. It’s not a secret that during winter our skin can get dry and need extra moisturizing power, and this hand balm is exactly what you need. Allow the hand mixed lavender and soothing essential oils to be absorbed by your skin, and enjoy the soft scent and smoothness that is brought to your hands. Keep it all to yourself or give as a gift to a friend or loved one this winter or throughout the year.

Cheshire Braided Rugs

Our final must-have for winter is our Cheshire Braided Rug Collection. We love this collection for winter because of its softness, which is unlike any other non-wool braided rug. In addition to how these rugs feel under your feet, the rich colors provide a neutral and traditional look for any room, and the durable fibers can be kept indoors or moved to an outdoor space. Add a little extra warmth to your favorite living rooms inside your home, or create a cozy feeling in an enclosed porch to admire the wintry world outside.
