Navy is the new black:

In 2017, navy blue will be the preferred alternative to black. Whether your aim is to accent your room or to paint your walls, navy blue will add a modern twist, while lending a traditional feel to your home. That being said, it makes this color the perfect candidate to pair well with almost any color scheme and will add a certain sophistication to your room, without giving the eye an impression of being small. Let’s take a look at how navy blue can define your living room with the finesse you find in a picture perfect home décor magazine.

Your living room seating:

Put first things first. The fact is people get tired of flashy-colored sofas, loveseats and chairs. If you’re not looking to change your furniture for a while and want to avoid cringing when you see the color once the fad is over, then sticking to a neutral color is the way to go. Picture a beautiful navy upholstered sofa in your living room. Just like the perfect Italian tailored suit, it will fit your space like a glove. The LaVernia collection is representative of this look with their beautiful selection of upholsteries and patterns.

Decorative Pillows:

Now that you nipped the living room seating in the bud, your choice of color scheme makes it quite easy to mesh well with the decorative pillows you may want to select. Again, it comes down to whether you want to stick to a traditional feel, which is timeless or if you have a wild streak and absolutely need to throw in some color. Besides, decorative pillows are not exactly the largest investment in the room! For a traditional feel, stick to navy blue and lighter shades of blue. If you want to add some character, fun patterns will add some visual interest. If adding contrasting colors is a must, then yellow is quite the happy color!

sds

Home Décor:

Finally, the room is never complete without its accessories. Add throws, candleholders, vases and picture frames either in the traditional tones or in the contrasting tones if you prefer.

Now that you have your information about how navy blue will bring sophistication to your home, you can decipher whether this is the look you would like to achieve. Navy blue is the new black – the little black dress you will have in your home for many years to come.

Poufs:

A really great way to accent a home with geometric patterns is with the use of poufs. Take one or a few to really dress up the space.

How To Add An Accent Chair To Your Living Room?

3-13-2015 11-11-50 AMThere is a list of a few questions you must ask yourself when looking to add an accent chair to your living room. Don’t worry; it doesn’t need to be complicated to match your furniture. Here are 5 simple questions you might ask yourself:

e82e0ba35f3e91160e9b65f262c581d1

  1. Do your sofas have a design on them or do they have a solid color?
  2. Which color scheme are you using in your living room?
  3. Is there a common theme in your living room (florals, vintage, monochrome)?
  4. Which pattern would be the best match for your living room furniture?
  5. Where are you going to place your accent chair?

Based on these questions, you should be able to make a good choice. Now, little tips and advice to help you make a better choice:

  •  If your sofas have designs or patterns, you must choose a whole-colored chair (in a color that we can easily see in your sofa’s design). When your sofas are whole-colored, you can choose a design for your chair.
  • Don’t choose a chair solely with the colors of your sofas; inspire yourself from all the elements in your living room.
  • Follow the theme of the other furniture to keep harmony in the room. If you have a monochrome theme, for example, choose something black and white (with an accent of grey maybe) with lines and simple forms.
  • Create a match with the accent pillows on your sofas (if you already have some) or add them to complete your style and make it harmonious.
  •  When you choose a place for your accent chair, keep in mind that this is used to enhance your living room. Most of the time, it looks better when it is in positioned in a different angle. See the following examples:

Mix & Match Your Dining Room Furniture

Are you looking to spice up your dining room? You can add character to this space by mixing an array of furniture with a Vintage Casual style. All your pieces will have some type of character to them and they don’t need to be from the same collection! Besides, being too matchy-matchy has nearly become a home décor faux pas!

The dining table

First and foremost, begin with the dining table. The Mestler dining table is a simply shaped table with a beautiful rich bisque finish. Fortunately, the simplicity of the shape allows for the rich finish to take the spotlight. In fact, the beauty of picking a table as such is that you can allow yourself to ramp up the character with the seating.

Seating options

That being said, the second task is that of selecting the dining seating. The Mestler collection offers a variety of seating choices to meet your dining room décor needs. As a first option, the side chair featuring a beautiful distressed antique blue finish, would definitely add some much needed character to the table. However, if you feel that this option is antique blue overkill, you can play with the seating style and add a touch of blue instead. In order to pull this look off, opt for a mix of distressed antique blue chairs, distressed antique white chairs and a tufted light brown upholstered chair. All three dining chairs offer a Vintage Casual style that blends perfectly with the dining table.

The piece that ties it all together

Lastly, the final touch resonates with the buffet. The Demarlos dining room server features a vintage-inspired style. This piece is bathed in a rich finish with gentle distressed accents and antique hardware. It screams character! Despite exuding character, its relaxed sensibility avoids an overstated look. Aside from being stylish, this server offers plenty of storage space – a must for ladies that love their china!

If you’re an individual who enjoys displaying a little character in your home, then this project is for you! Enjoy mixing and matching your pieces to achieve your desired look!

Kids Furniture Essentials

Kids' Furniture Essentials blog title
Parents always want to give only the best to their little ones, even if sometimes it implies spoiling them! But what if they could spoil their kids with fair long-lasting “tangible assets” for many years? Yes, you guessed right: Kids’furniture is a long lasting “capital good” which can endure for years! But, how to choose “the” furniture that will fit perfectly in your kids’ room?

First, you have to think practical while choosing the furniture designs. You don’t have to follow your kids’ fancy ideas as they might change very often; instead, you should opt for long, safe and functional furniture that will grow with them.

3 things are essentials in a kid’s bedroom:

1-      A bed

2-      A dresser

3-      A nightstand or a desk depending on the age

1-  The masterpiece of the room : the bed

Choose the type of bed that will last until your kid becomes a teen. Full or twin size bed?  It’s only a slight difference in width! A full size bed is 15 inches wider than a Twin; yet, as a twin bed is longer it is a great asset for taller kids!

Loft beds are great for storage or for friends sleeping over….

kid's furniture 1

So are Bunk beds ….

and trundle beds!

2-  The ultimate place for clothes storage: the dresser

Buy a dresser that matches the bed. You can even choose a dresser with a mirror incorporated and add other cabinets if needed as time goes by and your kids grow.

3-  Nightstand

Get the nightstand that goes with the bed and dresser, where you could put a lamp and books. It’s always nice to have a complete set and besides, you will get a good price for it too!

Finally, let yourself go and follow your kid’s creativity with decor by adding rugs, matching lights and bedding that reflects their personality.

The most important factor in choosing your kid’s furniture is to make sure their bedroom is a “haven”, where they will have fun and feel comfortable!
