Get the Look: Simple Country Entryway

Thursday, January 11th, 2018

For a breezy entryway that looks put together but not cluttered, focus more on items that keep a room grounded and the rest will fall into place. Take a look below for inspiration, and to see how you can get the look with home accents from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.

Rustic Country Huntboard | Get the Look | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopThe console table above makes a beautiful, welcoming statement in this entryway, and its dark finish contrasts nicely with the airy, light colors of the room. The distressed surface coordinates with the hardwood floors, which gives a softer look to the bulky piece. Our Rustic Country Huntboard offers the same effect, as well as storage options for linens, knick knacks and other items. For a pop of color, an area rug is the perfect solution. Our USA made Portico Cablelock Braided Rug creates the same brightness and color scheme as the rug above, and will last under the feet of numerous guests and family members.

As you can see, the space above is decorated quite minimally, but it still emits a warm, welcoming feeling to give a great first impression. A vase or large container filled with greens and tall plants (Bells of Ireland, White Muscari, real or Artificial Grass) placed on the table adds a natural look that can be easily switched out season by season. Flanked by two lanterns with pillar candles inside, the tabletop is styled simply yet beautifully.

A mirror enhances the open feel of the room, and gives you a chance for a last-look on the way out the door. A mirror works best here (as opposed to wall art or a print) because of its glass lantern complements, natural wood elements throughout the space, and the ability of this home accent to spread natural light – of which you can never have enough.

Consider incorporating these pieces into your entryway, or use the tips and suggestions to enhance the design of an existing space in your home.

Classic Home Furnishings for the New Year

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

A new year calls for reflection, resolutions, a crisp calendar, forgetting to remember to write the new year instead of the old, and gives you an excuse (if you need one) for redecorating and freshening up your home decor! Seating and simple furniture pieces are a great way to create a new but comfortable look for any room in your home; whether you are looking to accent some of your favorite decorative pieces or want to redo a whole room.

Dining Room Farmhouse Ladderback Chair Set
Perhaps in this room more than any other, your seating is not only functional but ornamental as well. The chairs and table must stand up to daily use, as well as impress as a standalone piece when you are entertaining guests. Our new Farmhouse Ladderback Chairs offer elegance with a tall back and tapered legs for a formal dining room, but also give off a rustic appeal with a versatile oak stain for country-styled dining rooms or smaller dining areas. Use with your current dining table or mix and match with one of ours to create a signature dining room look.

Sturbridge Exclusive Saddle Stools

Kitchen Incorporating seating into your kitchen is a great way to create an inviting atmosphere, no matter how small or large the room. Our Sturbridge Exclusive Saddle Stools feature contoured seating for ultimate comfort, and come in a variety of colors to compliment your already established kitchen decor. In addition to the 24″ counter and 30″ bar heights, we offer an 18″ Saddle Stool that can be used alongside the other heights, creating an appealing, multi-level look. If you’re looking for a more antiquated style, our Colonial Stools withColonial Stoolsrounded legs feature a sea grass seat and are offered in three primitive colors. Colonial Stools are a great option for smaller kitchen areas, but will add charm in any space you put them.

Living Room
Sturbridge Exclusive Stafford Chair & OttomanAdding furniture that is both comfortable and stylish to a living room can sometimes be a challenge. It may not always be easy to find complementary furniture pieces that fit in or fill up a room, but adding a simple chair or recliner -either in a print or solid color- can create charming contrast while offering a comfortable place to relax. Our Sturbridge Exclusive Stafford Chair is a classic choice for a cozy corner or main area in a living room, and paired with the matching Ottoman, is a luxurious resting place that can be enjoyed by you and your guests. If a recliner is more your style, our Parlor Upholstered Pushback Recliner offers the same luxurious comfort as our Stafford Chair & Ottoman
but in a single unit: just push back, curl up and relax.

Entryways and hallways give you an excellent opportunity to introduce guests to the style and beauty of your home, although with limited space it can be difficult to effectively do so. For these small spaces, it is best to incorporate as much functions with your furniture as possible. A fixture like our Entryway Storage Rack & Bench features hooks for hanging jackets, bags or keys; while the shelf below the bench is a great for shoe or slipper storage. The cushion is a tasteful enhancement, and provides you with a comfortable resting place for taking off Sturbridge Exclusive Cubby Storage Bench in Stainor putting on shoes. If you want a simpler country look with a more out-of-sight storage solution, a piece like our Sturbridge Exclusive Cubby Storage Bench is a timeless option, and added totes allow you to neatly put your belongings out of sight while maintaining a stylish hall or entryway.
