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.

Wednesday Spotlight: Table Settings

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Connected Circles Braided Table RunnerWhile the weather may not necessarily be an indicator, we have arrived at the spring season and to all the lovely events this new season brings. Whether you are planning Sunday brunch, a fun Friday night dinner, or just want your dining room to look beautifully decorated for spring and the entire year, we are happy to offer just what you need. This week’s Wednesday Spotlight shines on some of our favorite table settings and accent pieces that we hope will bring flair and life to your springtime events.

Crochet Table RunnerRunners
If you are setting the table with colorful or decorative plates, silverware, and glassware, a simple runner, like our Crochet Table Runner, is a great option to dress up the rest of your table not covered by dining necessities. Use just one or use multiple for longer tables, and larger centerpiece displays. If you’re looking for something a little more unique, our connected Circles Braided Table Runner offers a braided texture and charming colors for a more natural table setting. The circles create an excellent focal point in your dining room, and can be paired with coordinating pieces for a cohesive look in your dining area. Both runners are easy to care for and maintain; allowing you to enjoy your table setting without having to worry about high maintenance pieces that will be difficult to keep clean.

Spring Floral Round PlacematPlacematsBlue and White Round Placemat
Another way to decorate your table in linen is by marking each place setting with a placemat. For a casual setting, our Bold Braid Placemats are the perfect solution to simply decorating a kitchen bar or table in a breakfast nook. They come in a variety of colors, so you can choose the one (or ones) that fit your decor the best. For a more formal and floral solution, our Spring Floral Round Placemat is a colorful alternative to the braids, and the quilted cotton adds a delicate flair to your table. This placemat reverses to spring green and pink stripes, giving you options in your design. For a more classic look, our Blue & White Round Placemat gives you the same reversibility and floral appeal, but in a charming blue and white pattern – complementing the simplest or most intricate dining room decor.

Napkins and Accessories
Wire Mason Jar Salt & Pepper CaddyWhether you opt for cloth or paper napkins, we have you covered for your special or casual occasion. For a springtime look, and to match our placemats, we have our Spring Floral Napkin to decorate your table and pull the whole room together with florals and lively color. To keep those cloth napkins neatly on the table, our Wrought Iron Napkin Rings are the perfect solution, and, as they are available in many different styles, the perfect accent piece to add to your table setting. For a more casual look, or to keep paper napkins close in hand in the kitchen, our Wrought Iron Napkin Holders feature simple designs that will fit right in with your decor (and our Wrought Iron Napkin Rings). For  a more country or rustic look, our Wire Mason Jar Salt & Pepper Caddy will also hold your paper napkins in the decorative chicken wire holder, as well as Mason jar shakers, adding more function to this stylish accessory.

Tray Display TableServing Done RightChip and Dip Platter
For occasions outside of sit down dinners or meals, it’s always best to have decor that can offer and serve your guests for you (well, almost). Our Chip & Dip Serving Platter is great for laying out fruits, crackers and cheese, and of course chips and dip for hors d’oeuvres or light snacking. Use just for the family or to lightly feed your guests. For a more permanent station, our Tray Top Display Table looks beautiful in a den or dining room for serving tea, cocktails, and light snacks to your formal or casual guests.

We hope you enjoyed this week’s Spotlight, and wish you the very best when entertaining this season!
