Combining two of the best worlds in country home furnishings – indoor/outdoor and braided – the Perry Accent Mat is made to function as a durable doormat while offering the traditional charm of a braided rug. Its slim construction allows most entryway doors to glide right over the top, preventing the rug from bunching or catching on your door. The polypropylene fibers and rubber backing are easy to clean and won’t slip on most surfaces.

Decorating with Color: 2018 in Review

Thursday, December 20th, 2018

Since we are nearing the end of 2018, we are looking back at the blog posts we published this year. Last week, we reviewed our Get the Look posts from 2018, and this week it’s Decorating with Color’s turn. Decorating with Color is a series for which we choose a color scheme and curate photos of rooms and home decor featuring that color. We also offer up tips on how to incorporate that color into your own home, both seasonally and year round.

In October, we zeroed in on the gems that serve as birthstones for that month and featured pink rooms and pink furnishings. Our goal was to show how pink doesn’t have to be an intimidating color, especially in rustic homes, and we think we pulled it off.

August was all about yellow, and this post was fun, yet challenging to put together because of how great rustic and golden yellows look in homes – AKA, there are so many beautifully styled yellow rooms out there! We featured different rooms and furniture pieces to show that it is truly a color that can be used anywhere.

At the end of June we went patriotic, and focused on bringing together red, white and blue looks that could last past the Fourth of July. Americana lovers, this post is for you.

To celebrate spring we focused on cheerful greens in May, and like our yellow post, this one shows a variety of ways green can be used in a home.

Pastels took over in April, and we pulled images that either used multiple pastels or just one. Using a pastel in a big way can satisfy a need for subtlety, while still bringing plenty of color to a room.

We must have needed a brightening refresher in the snowy days of February, because during that month we featured red exteriors. From doors to porches, siding and barns, we think a splash of red can do any surface a lot of good.

Our first Decorating with Color post of 2018 was all about Pantone’s Color of the Year: Ultra Violet. This color is a bit trickier to use in a home, especially if you prefer muted tones or rustic hues. So we featured the color as an accent – on a wall, in a few throw pillows, a chair, and even a kitchen appliance (for our dream home, of course), and found that we really love purple accents outside.
