Not Shy on Style!
Yes, we all want our home to look like it could be featured in a magazine. For some of us though, the number 1 mission is really just to create an environment where everyone can kick off their shoes, put up their feet, curl up and enjoy being home. Because home is more than just a feeling, it’s a peaceful state of mind, one that anyone can achieve with the right pieces. Love, love, love super modern, super sleek pieces? No need to give up on them! Being comfortable and family-friendly doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style, we promise.
Creams and off-whites are easily, and universally, the most soothing tones. Create a bright and airy space by using them as much as possible. In the living room, a beige modular sectional sofa, like Horizon, allows for the whole family to sit together to watch the latest Pixar movie or to play a good ol’ game of Monopoly. Add practical solid wood furniture with storage to the mix and decorate with things that make you happy. Family photos, plants, books; if you love it, it’s in! Don’t forget to add an area rug to keep everyone’s toesies toasty!
The Hamburg Dining Table and Boston Dining Chairs
Simple and practical definitely doesn’t mean boring. By adding oversized accents, like our Globe pendant light or Charlotte mirror, to the dining room, you automatically make a grand statement. Add easy to care for solid wood furniture, like the dining table and sideboard from the Hamburg collection, wipeable chairs like Boston, as well as a low-pile, vacuumable rug for a space that works with everyone, big or small!
The bedroom should be your oasis of peace. By using creams, off-whites and solid woods here as well, you open up the space, making sure it doesn’t feel crowded, allowing you to get the best sleep ever. Surround yourself with elegant pieces, this is YOUR space after all, the kiddos have their own rooms! The upholstered Versailles bed and Reese chair, both tufted and in muted tones, add regal sophistication while the Mariner solid wood bedside table offers you a ton of much needed storage with its three drawers. Treat yourself to something absolutely decadent (no need for a hefty price tag!), like the marble-topped Carter console table. You work so hard, you totally deserve it!
