Weekly Spotlight: Five New Prints | Fall 2017

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

View of New Hampshire from Vermont Print | Fred SwanFor the first Weekly Spotlight of August we turn our attention to five new prints from our Fall 2017 catalog. All five are made in the USA and done by three artists with different, yet charming styles. Display on your walls all year long or coordinate with your fall home accents once summer is officially over.

Fred Swan

View of New Hampshire from Vermont is a picturesque print with exquisite depth. Artist Fred Swan has given us a perspective from the top of a hill, overlooking a quaint farmhouse, barn and the rolling mountains of New England.

Grandpa's Giant Pumpkin Print | Bonnie WhiteBonnie White

In true Bonnie White fashion, Lucky 13 and Grandpa’s Giant Pumpkin both charm us and offer their own form of entertainment with the use of people and animals. The latter is perfect for fall; pumpkins, colorful leaves and fun family gatherings are quintessential harvest elements.

Lucky 13 aims to turn the tables on Halloween folklore by showing costumed children having fun – not avoiding – the cute black cats in town.

Monday Must-Haves: Nautical Home Accents

Monday, June 26th, 2017

Industrial Oval Mirror

Get the most timeless nautical look this summer and throughout the year with a few must-have home accents combined with your personal style and tastes. For additional nautical inspiration and coastal decor, visit our website.

Walls

Nautical prints and landscapes are beautiful when hanging on your walls. We recommend being choosy about the art you display – don’t just throw something up for the sake of covering a bare space. So while you collect just the right piece or pieces, hang a stylish mirror like our Industrial Oval Mirror. Its industrial design and likeness to a ship’s porthole make it a great addition to a nautical room or home.

Sailor Cat Hooked Wool PillowPillow

You won’t be surprised when we choose a hand hooked wool pillow for a nautical must-have. This Sailor Cat Pillow by artist Mary Lake Thompson carries all the charm of a feline seafarer, and the hooked wool adds a
natural texture perfect for this style.

Adjustable Cage Floor LampLighting

When decorating your home with the sea in mind, you can almost never go wrong with caged lamps.

This Adjustable Cage Floor Lamp with a bronzed finish enhances the warmth of other home accents, and while the shade is decorative, it also allows plenty of light through to illuminate your nautical space at night.

Lobster on Stripes Accent Rug

Annie Soft SculptureAccent Rug

One of our favorite new web exclusive home accent just so happens to be perfect for nautical decorating. Blue and white are the nautical colors, and a bright red lobster reinforces coastal charm.

You can also get this Liora Manne design on an indoor/outdoor pillow.

Collectible

Joe Spencer is back with a pair of sailor soft sculptures. Shown here is Annie, holding a sailor’s knot and sporting a lovely sailor’s uniform. Her bottom is weighted, allowing Annie to sit on a shelf, mantel or table next to seashells, an additional sailor’s knot or her companion Avery.
