Minimalist Looks for Your Summer Mantel

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Minimal is master in these looks for summer. Save the over-the-top decorating for the holiday season and dress down your fireplace – you’ll likely be spending more time in your outdoor spaces, anyway.


This never has to be minimal, but on a mantel it can be key to achieving the charming look you want.
A simple print and plaque, or even just USA made rustic decor can create that traditional appeal.

Beach Vibes

For a more coastal cottage look, a cluster of shells and pretty rocks make the perfect mantel accent. Make it more personal by collecting the rocks on your next beach trip and displaying them with family photos.

Clean and Simple

Non-hanging wall art like the prints shown below add decorative appeal without going overboard. Think pictures of water, trees or even just blue and green abstract art. Lean them against the wall or
chimney for an even more relaxed feel.

If you don’t have a certain style in mind, you can never go wrong with the three classic decoratives:
candles, flowers and something on the wall (a print or mirror). Use summer flowers and a
summertime image to reflect the season.

Blank Wall Solutions for Your Home

Thursday, January 26th, 2017

There are many ways to decorate the walls of your home, and sometimes rearranging wall art, photos, decorative accents or even painting can offer a fresh look in a room without too much work. Here are some blank wall solutions for when you find yourself in a decorating rut.

Wallpaper or Paint

Wallpaper has had its ups and downs in home decorating, but using it, like any other home accent, is all about personal preference. Use wallpaper to create an accent wall, or find a subtle pattern to decorate a whole room. The same goes for a new paint color; in both cases, consult a professional to learn the correct methods for application and to gain insight on complementing colors.

Gallery Wall of Photos

Gallery walls are an easy go-to for a blank wall, as chances are you already have photographs displayed around the house. Mix or match sizes, textures and even colors of frames to fill a wall with personal mementos. Take a look at some of our favorite gallery wall looks here.


Especially in a hallway, mudroom, kitchen or small space, a blank wall can be helpful when there is not a lot of extra space for odds and ends. Wall hooks come in many sizes, shapes and styles for a variety of uses. Use a single wall hook for pet leashes or keys, and use multiple for backpacks, jackets and larger items. Cupboards provide a great storage solution for items you want to keep tucked away out of sight, or items you don’t need on a daily basis. Adding these to a wall can clear up floor or closet space in your home while offering decorative appeal.

Seasonal Decoratives

Of course, your blank walls can be filled with seasonal decoratives that change throughout the year. Switch out holiday wreaths for metal wall art in the shape of a heart, add a St. Patrick’s Day sign and then decorate with spring prints and imagery, switch to Fourth of July decor and then to fall, and before you know it the holiday season will begin again. This is a great way to redecorate without making big changes to your home, which will exude a festive feeling all year long.
