Back to School Idea Board

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

There are a couple more weeks left of summer vacation for students and their families here in New England, but the time for back to school shopping and planning is now. We’ve put together a back to school idea board for the home, which includes suggestions for keeping kids and the entire family focused and productive when they have homework, special classroom projects or need a space to take a breath and relax.

2017 Home Trend: Pantone’s Color of the Year

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

Back in December, Pantone released its Color of the Year for 2017: Greenery. This color is inspired by the renewing, reviving and reinvigorating qualities of spring and the newness of the natural world in the days after winter, and as such, will reflect natural and soft lighting for a more refreshed look every day. While you look for new and fresh ways to decorate your home this year, look to nature and this color for inspiration in creating a peaceful escape in every room. Take a look below at some of the simple and more involved ways for incorporating Greenery into your home decor.

To the Walls

Paint an accent wall or an entire room in Greenery to brighten a space and its decor. As last year’s comeback kid, wallpaper is also a great option, and can add this color to a pantry, closet or entryway if not in a family room or country kitchen.

Pillows and Bedding

If you like to change up your bedding every year, or haven’t for a while, try green bedding in the form of a quilt or comforter. Adding throw pillows will create more comfort, and are great for accenting a bench, ottoman or accent chair in your bedroom.

In the Kitchen

Greenery looks exceptional on kitchen cabinets, especially in a country kitchen where wood and natural materials thrive in an island, the walls, chairs and flooring. Depending on your tastes, a muted bright green hue may be more complementary, but just as charming.

On Furniture

Make a statement with a green chair, ottoman or switch out a lampshade for one in Pantone’s Color of the Year. Contrast with wood furniture or other upholstered furnishings to create a cheerful and beautiful family room, den or other space.

Actual Greenery

If you’re not quite ready for a paintbrush, new furniture or an entirely new room, you can never go wrong with actual greenery! Plants with lush leaves and tall stalks can add depth to a room, color to home accents, and maybe most importantly, can brighten your mood.
