Reupholstery 101

Benefits of Reupholstery

Reupholstering furniture will allow you to avoid replacing ta whole piece of furniture that is still in great condition. Reupholstery can give a fresh, new look to your old, cherished piece of furniture! Not only does reupholstery allow you to keep the furniture you love, but it is also a cost-efficient way to update your furniture.

Your New Decor Palette – 2016 Colors Of The Year!

Pantone embraces the concept of “two is better than one”. For the first time ever, Pantone announced two colors for 2016. The new colors are a dynamic-duo, Rose Quartz and Serenity.

“Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace,” says Pantone.

Rose Quartz, a delicate and feminine color, offers elegance and simplicity to any space. On the other hand, Serenity brings a rich yet soft tone with a relaxing and soothing vibe.

When combined, the colors create an inviting and fresh look that “challenges the traditional perception of color association.”

To incorporate these colors in your home this upcoming spring, add fresh flowers along with a plethora of fabrics. Pillows, throws, accent chairs and colored vases are easy ways to blend these two fresh colors. For an inviting feel, combine Rose Quartz and Serenity with creamy colors such as ivory. For a more edgy style, combine them with a sharp grey to add some contrast while maintaining soft color tones. For a twist, throw in plum, opal blue, gold, or peach!

Fresh Furniture For The New Year!

Reupholstering allows you to keep the furniture structure you love, but completely transform the piece from the inside out for a stylish new look! What better way to begin 2016 than with fresh, newly upholstered furniture in your home?

How To Avoid A Holiday Decor Disaster!

December is here, and Christmas time is finally upon us! This is the season to fill your home with holiday spirit for friends and family to enjoy. While there are many ways to beautifully decorate your home for the holidays, there are some things to avoid if you want to keep an elegant look.

Here are three tips to avoid a decor disaster:

Don’t over-do it. Remember, there is beauty in simplicity. If you have too many decorations, your look will go from merry and bright to cluttered and overwhelming. Select a few of your favorite decorations and showcase them in a room.

Stick to one theme. There are many styles with Christmas decorations. If you have the country Christmas look with lots of red, rustic decor, stick to that style throughout the house. If you prefer lighter Christmas decor such as whites and golds, try to choose decor that is compliments that soft feel.

Don’t ignore the outdoors. If you don’t want the hassle of putting up Christmas lights around your landscape and on your house, there are still simple ways to make sure the outside of your home has the holiday spirit! First and foremost, avoid the tacky yard displays! Add a large Christmas wreath to your front door with small twinkle lights intertwined to welcome your guests. Garland on your banisters with a string of lights, and winter plants on your porch will instantly transform the outside of your home with little effort.

Embrace the warmth and elegance that Christmas brings this season, and have fun trying new looks in your home!
