Three Classic Living Room Looks

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

Being comfortable in any room in your home can have a lot to do with the decor you complement it with. Stylish home accents speak to your tastes and lifestyle, and make excellent aesthetic and emotional impressions on family members as well as guests, especially when you integrate personal heirlooms and treasured collectibles. As a frequently used room, the living room can tie an entire home together, or stand out among other decorating styles while offering comfort and functionality to your family throughout the year. Three classic looks stick out in our minds the most, for their timeless qualities and welcoming atmospheres, as well as the ease with which you can alternate between them with just a swap of curtains and a rug or an accent pillow.

Casual Country

Solid colored furniture, nature-inspired hues and durable materials; simple decor that emanates outdoor charm and a cozy, decorative area rug on the floor completes the casual country look. An airy, lightweight curtain offers stunning window appeal and an opportunity to take in the outside view.

Rich and Rustic
Similar to casual country, a rich and rustic living room highlights more rich, darker tones of wood and furniture. Greens, dark browns rusty reds and muted naturals fill the room with log cabin charm, and are complemented by slightly whimsical decor that is primitive in design. Braided rugs are the ideal choice for the floor of this living room, as layered curtains with intricate, forested detailing are for the windows.

Sweet Elegance
a
A room that speaks for itself. Pinks and rosy hues give a living room sweetness, while curved iron accents and printed furniture add touches of elegance. Sweeping curtains with embroidered details give a worldly look, transforming your home into a regal destination. Black and white against the bright colors tone down the statement to keep it in line with your lifestyle while enhancing the classic look.

Wednesday Spotlight: Bear Decor

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015

Bear Foot RestThe official start to fall is exactly two weeks away, and already we’ve started hunkering down for colder days. We love the look of a rustic cabin, especially in the autumn and winter seasons, because the cozy décor emulates warmth and welcome throughout your home. Bear décor is very complementary to this type of style, and we are happy to Spotlight five of our favorite bear-themed accents to create a comfortable woodsy atmosphere in your home. Whether you reside in a true wilderness cabin or are looking to amp up the cozy feel of your home this season, Sturbridge Yankee Workshop has you covered with these charming bear decoratives.

Pinecone Bear Rug in Red

This little bear is a customer favorite – providing a soft place to rest your feet and adding inviting character into any room. Available as a brown bear, black bear and polar bear, you can decide how this foot rest will best complement your décor and add rustic appeal to your home during the colder months and throughout the year.

Also soft and warm underfoot is our Pinecone Bear Rug.

Black Bear Pillow

Featuring two bears standing next to pine trees, surrounded by leaves, acorns and pinecones, this rug is ideal for a cabin in the woods or a country-styled room in your home. It provides protection to your floors and gives your feet something plush to walk on. Available in many sizes and two color designs, this rug will fit your personal style needs.

Bear Lamp FinialSimilar to our Pinecone Bear Rug is a hand hooked wool pillow by artist Lisa Hilliker. The rustic, nature-inspired colors create an eye-catching effect in contrast to the black bear; this pillow will make a bold and welcoming statement in any room. You can display it in your country entry solely as a decorative accent, or place it in your cozy family room for comfortable appeal.

Sometimes subtlety makes just as charming of a statement, so for a bear-y subtle look, we recommend our Bear Lamp Finial. Crafted from antiqued brass, this little guy will add an eye-catching look to any table or floor lamp while holding the lampshade in place. Coordinate with rustic décor or place multiple in any room for a complementary look.Welcome Bear Wall Sign

Tie all of your bear décor together in your home with the Welcome Bear Wall Sign. The holly and berries complement holiday décor, but also provide a nature-inspired look throughout the year in an entryway or family room. Constructed from distressed wood panels, this rustic accent will add a hint of the country to your home and create that cabin escape you’ve dreamed about.
