The Holidays are Coming – Don’t Stress Out!

The holidays are coming! Start here with some easy tips to keep in mind for your holiday decorating.

With so many things to do around this time of year, try not to stress out getting them all done. The purpose of the holidays is to make memorable experiences for you and your family and guests. It’s important to stay relaxed during the planning period.

Start with your front entrance

The holidays are a great time to make it festive and impressive! Take a walk outside and collect natural elements such as pine branches, pine cones and branches.  Tuck them in some large vases or metal buckets or oversized baskets. Then add some colorful bows and ornaments. In addition, weave some pretty strand lights throughout the design to brighten up this entry area. And remember to hang a pretty wreath on the front door!

Step inside!

Once inside your home the entry area should be welcoming as well as an introduction to the look and feel of the rest of the house.  Go a little bold here with a painted console table and an oversized mirror or wall art above it! Flank the console table in holiday elements such as pine branches, holiday lights, scented candles, and other holiday collectibles.

Showcase the Christmas tree

Make the Christmas tree the focal point in your home for the holidays. Whether you have one or many, make each one stand out in the room. Try giving each one a different theme. Whether it’s a flocked tree or a fresh green one, treat each one as a project by itself and get creative! How about a gingerbread tree or and candy cane tree, or a vintage tree? Let your imagination flow and surprise yourself and your guests with some unusual holiday designs!

Most importantly…

Remember to relax and have fun with your family and guests during the holidays. Throughout December make your home a warm and friendly place to be with scents from baking cookies, creating cinnamon rolls for breakfast, as well as simmering potpourri on the stove or fireplace.  Turn the lights on the trees in the morning and let them glow all day. Everyone will remember the warmth and relaxing ambience of your home for years to come

Spring officially arrived on March 20th, and we are LOVING the trends for this season. Just reading about these chic items has us squirming anxiously in our seats to share them with you. Only picking up a few new pieces for the spring season, you are sure to feel those winter blues melting away. Now get out a pen and paper – you will want to write this down!

  1. Copper

Copper is in this spring, and it is demanding a presence in your home!  Copper lamps and home décor accessories you have likely seen popping up in décor magazines everywhere, and we love it too! For example, adding a copper piece demands attention in any space and lucky for us, it is very versatile. Keep in mind that with copper, you will want to make sure you are regularly doing an exceptional cleaning on those pieces to keep their golden shine you will need to treat your copper with a protective finish. If you are on the hunt for that unique eye catcher in your home, we certainly recommend adding a contemporary copper accent piece or two!

2. Climbing Plants

Not just any plants are climbing plants! This season it is time to let your vines grow, ditch the trimmers, and see where they go! Place them up high on shelves and let the vines hang loose this spring. This trend is one you can get excited about; there are so many options of plants, pots, and placements to experiment with! Don’t have time to waste tending to indoor plants?  Try a Pothos plant; they are very easy going with big beautiful green leaves. If you are a plant lover, try buying a few plant accessories, such as beautiful pastel pots, and add in some adorable succulents! Succulents are also very limited maintenance and come in a wide variety of styles, colors, and looks.

3. Chic Marble Wallpaper

Just when you thought the days of wallpaper were over it makes a comeback and ultimately redeems itself!  This marble wallpaper trend is one to pay some attention to. From clean and straightforward to loud and artsy, marble can change the look of your room. We would agree, a whole room in marble might be a bit much, but an accent wall?  Now we are talking. With endless colors to choose from, adding a wall of marble may be the perfect way to brighten up your interior and pull together an accent color theme in your room.  Visit us for help picking out the perfect marble wallpaper to add some chic to your interior. With this spring trend, you’re sure to add a sense of effortless and chic style that’s very classy, but if you’re thinking the marble look is not for you, wait until you see what’s next!

4. Wood Tile – Better Than You Think!

What a time to be alive. We can have marble in the form of wallpaper and wood in the form of tiles! If you are a rustic fan, you will like this trend. There are several benefits to wood tile rather than hardwood; it resists moisture, it does not need to be regularly polished, it has a warmer look than traditional tile, and is usable with many different décor styles – farmhouse lovers we are talking to you! There are several myths that wood tile does not last long, warps, and looks fake, don’t let that deter you; with a little research, you will learn what a perfect combination this is for our living spaces.

5. Dive Deep Into Blue This Season:

Deep Blues are making a comeback, and it is evident to see why. Accordingly, they are the perfect companion to the minimalism style, which has been trending for some time. If you are feeling a little blah about any of your interior spaces, add a drop of dark blue somewhere, and it will give you that fresh statement you are looking for. Where can I add such a dark color you say? Well, we have a few ideas! You can add a piece of accent furniture, such as an ottoman or loveseat, and don’t be afraid of velvet! Also, you can paint a blue accent wall, or even paint your front door a deep blue to show you are in with the trends this season!

These spring trends of 2017 don’t disappoint; we cannot wait to try them ourselves! It is incredible what a copper accent or a warm colored wood tile can do to freshen up your space for the warmer days ahead, and who does not love a gorgeous deep blue? Ah, we are in heaven!

In conclusion, if you are ready to choose that copper piece or pop of dark blue in your home you will want to talk to our design team!  Our in-store interior designers are excited to help you find what you need to get trendy this spring!
