We can’t believe it, but we are already halfway through summer here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, although there are plenty of warm, sunny days ahead of us. Today we are spotlighting five home accents on our current front cover, all of which you can get for less than $60.

Sturbridge Yankee Workshop Summer 2017 CatalogDotted Sheer Curtains

This curtain collection has a timeless charm that you can see in almost every one of our catalogs. Its simple sheer design complements any room, while the Swiss pin-dot pattern creates an air of unique elegance. Available in Tiers, Panels and a Valance.

Potted Geraniums Pillow

An Americana design by artist Susan Winget decorates this accent pillow, great for the gardener or for decorating in patriotic style. Soft polyester fabric allows for easy-care and comfort on a chair, sofa, bed or bench.

Iron Birdbath

Welcome birds to your garden or a large potted plant in the yard with this beautiful bird bath. Crafted from cast iron, this outdoor home accent will withstand the elements and add a decorative touch to your exterior spaces.

Welcome to the Porch Doormat
& Rubber Mat Tray

These last two home furnishings are ideal for the porch or a covered deck. Our Welcome to the Porch Doormat adds depth and rich color to your front stoop, as well as farmhouse style and function.

The Rubber Mat Tray underneath preserves the doormat’s shape and prolongs its life, and features a scrolled border to enhance the decorative appeal of whatever doormat you choose to display. Did we mention that both this Doormat and the Tray are made in the USA?

Friday Feature: Chubby Bird Statuette

Friday, July 11th, 2014

Chubby Bird StatuetteToday’s Friday Feature is simply too sweet (or would it be too tweet) for words. Well, that is not entirely true. We have lots to say about this precious little statuette. Plump and precious, this songbird looks cute enough to cuddle. Black dot eyes peek out above a tiny beak. Intricately sculpted wings may not let this bird fly, but boy are they cute. Lightweight stone and resin mix sculpture. Soft gray coloration akin to marble appears heavier than it actually is.

We recommend using this charming little creature to accent a table, mantel, bookcase or desk. You could even use it as a paperweight if you really wanted to.

Whether you live in a rustic country cottage or enjoy the warm lights of the big city, this adorable statuette will be a welcome addition to your home.

~Web Exclusive Garden Decor at SYW

Friday, March 9th, 2012

With the much anticipated spring season only about a week away, it’s time to start thinking about our outdoor living spaces again. No matter what the space is, being outside in your backyard on a patio, deck or in your garden, at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop we know it’s important to call that space your own. Carry themes of your indoor design style to the outdoors and see just  how much more time you’ll start spending out there.

Beautifully pictured here to the left is our new web exclusive, Tulip Plant Stand. A traditional style plant stand presents itself in an elegant tulip shape. Crafted of powder-coated roman bronze to add durability and longevity. Its sturdy 4 leg base supports the frame, leading up to a handy, removable top insert. Mirroring the round plant tray above, is a petite round space for yet another plant if you wish. Therefore our Tulip Plant Stand offers a two-in-one spot to decoratively display your hard work out in the garden. Customers may also enjoy our new Virginia Plant Stand, which offers an exquisite pedestal style base and scalloped, removable plant tray. For more outdoor decorating ideas click Here.

Once you have created your ideal outdoor living space, there are many benefits you should know about enjoying time in the fresh air:

  • Vitamin D provided  from the sunlight improves your immune system and bone health.
  • Being with nature relaxes you and reduces stress levels.
  • Improves your vision, as eyes are relaxed and not strained by tedious indoor activities.
  • Working outdoors improves overall creativity and interest in new hobbies.
  • According to the  Environmental Protection Agency, “air inside our houses and offices is two to five times more polluted than outdoor air.”

So get outside and start decorating with Sturbridge Yankee Workshop!
