At Home with Coastal Decor July 28 2016
It's summertime and whether you live by the coast or miles away, we can all appreciate the relaxing charm that coastal decor brings to a home. Cool whites and ivory and varying shades of blue all come together to give that breezy, seaside ease.
When it comes to decorating "Coastal" style, it's good to pick a few key pieces in neutral shades. This allows the flexibility of changing up the room with accessories if you choose. Linen upholstery in whites and neutrals will keep things light and breezy.
Here are a few upholstered pieces that work well: Vanguard Furniture's Fisher Sofa is shown with a relaxed waterfall skirt. A pair of Vanguard's Redondo Ivory Fairmont Chairs and the Lexington Monterey Sands Archer Chair together would bring that coastal Hamptons feel.
For your wood pieces rustic, light washed tables work well. This Uttermost Stratford Rustic Cocktail Table offers ample space on the top with a lower shelf for books and other collectables.
Next comes the addition of lighting. This is where you can have some fun and even introduce a piece a bit more contemporary and vibrant. This exquisite Diallo Chandelier by Arteriors will be the focal point of the room. The coral like pieces are crafted with lacquered resin and a center gold sphere that hangs like a jewel.
Brings some soft shades of blues into the mix with table lamps like this Uttermost Hermosa Table Lamp with its crackled sky blue glaze. Another great find is this John Richard Ocean Lamp.
Jaipur Naturals Tobago Mallow Area Rug made of 100% jute ties the coastal theme together with its natural quality.
Coastal accessories can include sea life, shells, coral and sand. Nautical or coastal prints on pillows, artwork and throws will add expressive coastal touches. John Richard Eco Friendly Brain Coral Bowl and Raxor Coral make wonderful tabletop additions along with artwork pieces like this Bassett Mirror Throughly Modern Regatta.
So whether you live by the coast or miles away you can bring the coast home and enjoy the casual atmosphere that completes this popular style.
Chic Entryways July 20 2016
Make a big impression in your entryway even if you are tight on space. For some chic decor pieces we turn to Jonathan Adler, Arteriors and Momeni Rug.
Draw guests into your home with a runner with an intricate pattern to add interest. Momeni Rug Dunes is shown here in blue and comes in various sizes.
Consoles or other hallway tables are always a good addition to an entryway. It offers a practical solution to setting keys down or other items like mail and bags. Keep accessories light so that you have ample tabletop space. For those tight entryways we discovered this wonderful Jonathan Adler Caracas Console. With polished brass and an emerald gem-like top it falls right in line with a "chic" entryway.
In lieu of a console another piece to consider is a bench like this Jonathan Adler Jacques Bench. Lucite, velvet and brass give this piece modern glamour. Another beautiful bench is this Arteriors Felice Bench made with curved, black iron, brushed brass and a natural linen cushion.
Don't forget about your walls. An oversized mirror or a grouping of mirrors can add interest and be the first thing the eye catches upon entry. Painting the wall a rich, bold color can be alluring.
These simple elements together make a "chic" entryway a GRAND entrance.
Choosing a Sofa Bed July 12 2016
It's that time of year when friends and family are visiting. If you are like most of us, that one dedicated room for occasional guests doesn't exist. Often times the room for guests serves as a home office, play area or perhaps it's in your main room. As a result sleeper sofas have long been a solution giving owners the ability to save on space, provide seating, yet offer the comfort of a bed when needed.You don't have to give up style with today's modern, more appealing sleeper sofas like the Noah Upholstery Comfort Sleeper above by American Leather. If seating is a priority consider a sleeper sectional.

Countdown to Thanksgiving! November 17 2014
Countdown to Thanksgiving!
Whether or not you are hosting Thanksgiving at your house, chances are over the next month or two you will be entertaining for the holidays. So where do you begin? For starters spend this week decluttering and deep-cleaning your dining room area. A feast is all about the dining room taking the center stage.
Once the dining room is clutter free make sure you have access to a buffet table or sideboard. This allows for beverages, side dishes, desserts as well as additional dishware to rest. A buffet table frees up the space on the dining table and allows you to set the stage for a lovely holiday meal. The lower cabinet area provides an area for dishes to be stored and other serving pieces. A valuable piece of furniture often overlooked.
Next ensure you have plenty of seating. This is when extra leaves to a dining room table sure come in handy. Polish your furniture and plan your table settings, seating and centerpiece. During your final week plan out your menu and delegate dishes to family members. Being prepared will help you enjoy holiday entertaining.
