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.

Wrought Iron Lattice Bench

Pumpkin Farm to Table PillowAutumn Harvest Pillow

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!

Monday Must-Haves: Halloween Characters

Monday, August 28th, 2017

Our Halloween collection is full of whimsical collectibles, wall art and pillows, as well as timeless characters and symbols that will make every year just as spooky (and charming) as the last. For the next two weeks you can get special savings on our batty, ghostly and witchy decor, including the following five must-haves.

Come Sit a Spell Doormat

Come sit a spell on the stoop, and fend off myths of bad luck with this black cat. Made in the USA, this doormat designed by Dianna Swartz will add charm to your porch or front steps, and keep your entryway free of mud and dirt this fall.

All Hallow's Eve Lighted Shadow Box

Trick or Treat Halloween SignBlack cats also appear in Bethany Lowe’s All Hallow’s Eve Shadow Box, which also features vintage imagery that appears on many other home accents.

A whimsical rhyme at the bottom of the box offers the following wish: “By pumpkins fat and witches lean…By coal black cats with eyes of green…By all the magic ever seen…I wish you luck this HALLOWEEN!!”

Offering up the option of a Trick or Treat is a USA made, SYW exclusive sign featuring a black bat and spooky typography. The handcrafted frame and birch wood add a rustic look to your seasonal home accents and Halloween displays.

A little ghost can add a classic Halloween look to your collectibles and seasonal decor, and this one will also brighten them up. An LED light illuminates this waxy figure holding a BOO banner, and the included bag and twine make this accent a perfect party favor, too.

Finally, one of our newest witch sculptures. Nellie here holds a broomstick, ready to fly off into the night. Shiny gold accents adorn the bow on her hat, her legs and the bodice of her black dress for a sparkling look on a shelf or mantel.
