Outdoor rugs have soared in popularity in recent years as a way to bring together open-air spaces. They invite a cozy feel to outside furniture settings while extending an inside element out-of-doors during warmer entertaining months.
But how do you go about choosing the right rug for your outdoor space? You’ll want to choose the right type of rug, not only for your budget but also for the look, style, and durability that you want.
How do you know which sheets are really the best to sleep on every night? For most consumers – and even some department store employees – that might be a tough question to answer. When purchasing sheets, you might encounter a lot of confusing data. We’re about to sort it all out here.
The two main factors to consider when purchasing sheets is material and thread count.
Has boredom got you in its grip when you look around your home?
Are you itching to change your décor?
Look no further! We’ve got some tips to give you a good head start on what’s hot and trending for 2016…
Create a Calming Bedroom Environment to Maximize Your Zzz’s
Sleep is king! We as Americans are becoming more aware of the essential need for sleep when it comes to our good health. And the decorating style that’s taking over bedrooms and other living spaces across the nation is the use of simple color schemes. Neutral walls work best with bright pops of color from bed linens, pillows, curtains, and other fabric and décor items. Think of each room as a blank palate. Start with neutral paint colors, and then add your vibrant colors in hues that are just ‘you’ to create your own bedroom oasis.
Colors That Make Your Bedroom Pop
Blue is hot! Sure we’ve spent the past few years decorating in shades of bright turquoise, along with oranges and greens. But what about the other classic shades of blue? Navy, indigo, and denim tones provide the dramatic look you want for 2016 – especially when paired with clean, white lines and backgrounds.
It’s not surprising that pink is also making a comeback, considering Pantone’s selection of the TWO hottest colors for 2016: Rose Quartz (pink) and Serenity (blue). Even pink whites and pink beiges are making a bigger appearance already. Other colors also trending in bedroom, bath, and kitchen linens and home accessories are gold, copper, and Tuscan brown tones mixed with white for a new look. Of course, black and white is classic and still ever popular today.
Bedroom Linens with Pizzazz - Textures and Patterns Make a Statement
Texture and layered design are essential when it comes to room design. Faux furs may not be for everyone, but we’re seeing them more and more in pillows, bedding, and accessories for a touch of whimsy.
Retro design from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and even 80s are hotter than ever, including both modern and antique florals as well as ethnic patterns and lush textures that add a world-travelled vibe to your bedroom and personal décor.
Distress without the Stress
Another big trend we’re seeing for 2016 is a return of the farmhouse look… perhaps in part due to the popularity of one of HGTV’s hottest home makeover shows, “Fixer Upper,” starring Texas husband and wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines. Old becomes new with simple bedding, impressive focal pieces, oversize furniture, and rustic and romantic lighting fixtures. Antique, distressed, and aged are now the rage with all of the historical value – with all of their flaws and fixups.
Bottom line, anything goes! Your home design should always express your personality. Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb and experiment. Mix styles and patterns. Be bold in the bedroom and everywhere else in your home. If you don’t like it, you can always repaint or just change out the pillows and accessory fabrics. Whatever you do, remember that your home is always evolving – as are you.
That’s right… you didn’t misread the headline. For 2016, Pantone has chosen not one, but two Colors of the Year: Rose Quartz (pink) and Serenity (blue).
Everyone from plant growers to retailers is jumping on board with this dynamic and playful color combination. And as your local source for quality and luxury home décor, you’ll be seeing more of these colors throughout our store over the coming months.
Typically, you might associate these fresh, light pastel colors with the spring season and Easter holiday. However, there are a number of ways that you can work these two colors into your home during all four seasons.
