Decorating with Color: Just Peachy

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

In 1982, President Ronald Reagan declared August as National Peach Month, so to begin the celebrations of this fruit and color, we have found a few ways to make your home a little more peachy. Take a look below.

Bold Peach

natural hardwood as well as minimal decor.

Subtle Peach

The color of the walls blends well with the wood floors,
but the slight peachy hue gives the walls their own life.

Summer Colors We Love

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

Blooming Poppies Mini WreathFaux Mini Sunflowers

Red-orange, sunny yellow, sage and natural shades of green and rich blues are our favorite colors this summer. The cheerful and traditional looks of these colors mimics the good mood summertime puts us in and offers the most complementary style in our country homes.

Bold Braided Rugs - Daffodil and Daffodil MultiOmbre Stripes Wool Rug - SageWhether you’re decorating with poppies, sunflowers, ferns or decorative grasses, real or faux, make sure to look for the most natural, or closest-to-the-real-thing colors in your fresh picked bouquets and permanent arrangements.

If you prefer to change out colors for each season, area rugs should be your go-to home accents. Braided rugs are a timeless favorite, and you can go bold with a bright solid color or be a little more subtle, yet bold, with a multi colored rug that pulls complementary colors into the threads and spreads them across the floors of your home.

Our Ombre Stripes Wool Rugs also offer color combinations, and Sage adds the perfect combination of greens and yellows to your home for summer.

The softness of the green hues add color to your bedroom, tabletops and dining spaces without looking too heavy; think airy and light as ideal green shades for this time of year.

Our final favorite color for summer is one that we truly love any time of year: blue. Navy blue and aqua are on opposite ends of the blue spectrum, but are equally beautiful when adorning your home in summer decor. Aqua caters to coastal and beach decor, while darker blues enhance country charm and will complement wood furniture and cheerful paint colors no matter what the style of the room is.

So bring out your rugs, centerpiece accents and floral decor in all of these colors for a bright and beautifully decorated summer! And share with us how you’re accenting your year round pieces with summer decor and what colors you’re trying this season. Happy styling!
