Quick Tip: Seasonal Soft Sculptures

Soft sculptures can make a big seasonal statement in a small amount of space. Prop on a staircase, a rustic bench, a kitchen counter or chair for festive style that doesn’t overwhelm. Available for Halloween, harvest, Thanksgiving, Christmas and other occasions, you can decorate with these collectibles throughout the year!

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!

Weekly Spotlight: Autumn Tabletop Accents

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

As we move from September to October we’re bringing out more pumpkins, leaves and harvest decor to fully celebrate the season. One of the best ways to add fall charm to your home is with festive place settings and tabletop accents. Take a look below at some of our assortment, and view more (for all seasons) here.

Placemat and Table Runner Pairs

Along with many other new decor in our Holiday 2017 catalog are placemat and table runner pairs that make decorating a complementary table easy. You’ve seen our linen-like polyester placemats and runners before, and this season we’re introducing the Autumn Harvest and Autumn Maple & Butterfly designs. The Paprika Autumn Lace is also crafted from easy-care polyester (making holiday cleanup oh-so-simple), and both pieces feature a vibrant paprika color that is made elegant with oak leaves and acorns. When you shop our Holiday catalog, you can get free shipping on all three of these collections!

The Magic of Melamine

Harvest Melamine Dinnerware

Our Harvest Melamine Dinnerware made its first appearance in our Fall 2017 catalog for good reason. Melamine’s durability and functionality make these bowls and plates perfect for entertaining a large group of family and friends, a rambunctious group of kids, as well as your immediate family during normal mealtime. They are dishwasher safe and shatterproof, and have we mentioned the warm orange finish that is ideal for autumn?

Crow & Pumpkin Braided Jute Trivet

We would not be true to ourselves if we did not mention a braided jute tabletop accent, and this particular trivet combines country crows with plump pumpkins for a welcoming harvest accent. Use it to protect tabletop and countertop surfaces from hot dishes and plates, or simply lay out to accent autumn collectibles and decor.
