A DESIGNER'S JOURNAL

July 2020

ALL THINGS RED, WHITE AND BLUE

We are celebrating the 4th of July all month long! To kick off this month’s journal we decided to talk about incorporating red, white & blue into your designs. You can use these colors as small as a tiny accent or as large as a whole room. Here are a few examples of our previous designs featuring these colors. 

 

In the Dining Room photo we decided to incorporate different shades of reds and whites within our accessories and fabrics to create the perfect blend of color. 

 

In the Living Room photo we set the tone for drama by using a dark, navy blue wall and brightened up the space with a textured, white Chesterfield sofa. 

 

Using all three colors together or separately, will add a pop to any design.

A SUMMER REFRESH

Summer is fast approaching and we are all excited to pull out the outdoor furniture and enjoy the beautiful weather! Your items have been stored away all winter long and it’s time for a refresh. Now is the time to replace that broken chair, switch up your color scheme and add a touch of charm to your outdoor oasis. Here are three easy ways to achieve a new look without breaking the bank. 

 

1. Change up your furniture – You’ve pulled everything out from storage and your furniture needs some help, now what? Don’t worry, you have options! You can salvage what you already have by adding a fresh coat of paint to the piece. Refinishing something instantaneously brings it back to life and gives it a brand new feeling. If the piece is too far gone or you want to give your area a completely new look, you can purchase something new. Just by adding a new chair or table to your outdoor oasis, creates a whole different atmosphere. 

 

2. Swap out your throw pillows and area rug – Just like refreshing the inside your home, adding or changing out throw pillows and an area rug is the quickest and easiest update. It will bring new life and a splash of color to what you already have. And consider changing up your color scheme for an even larger impact! 

 

3. Add outdoor lighting – Our personal favorite way to add charm to a space is by adding outdoor string lights. They instantly create a warm and inviting place to be. Another great way to add charm is by adding outdoor lanterns and candle holders with candles. Nothing is more magical than the warm glow of light on a summer’s night.
