High-Impact Headboards
Comments Off on High-Impact Headboards

Headboards can easily be transformed into a focal point of a bedroom. If you have enough room on the wall behind your bed, a headboard can be a great way to add color and pattern into your room. Whether it’s a bold, solid colored headboard, or a fun patterned fabric, there are many ways to create a high-impact, attention grabbing bed with just one piece. We’ve grabbed a few of our favorite examples for you to see- take a look!

Solid Colored Headboards:

You don’t always need a pattern to make a statement- try a bold hue for extra impact!

Patterned Headboards:

Patterns are always attention grabbing whether they’re bold like this one:

Irregular Shapes:

Another way to amplify your bedroom is to add an irregularly shaped headboard to your bed. We especially love these two from John Robshaw!

Entryway Essentials
Comments Off on Entryway Essentials

The entryway can be one of the trickiest spaces in your home to design. As the first space you see when you enter a home, the entry has to make a good impression! A house should flow as you walk through it, not be disjointed, and the entry is where it all starts. You want your entry to be functional, but also be an aesthetic preview of what the rest of what your home’s design is all about.

There are key pieces that go into making a great entryway, so we’ve gathered a few items that make the list of our ‘entryway essentials’. Take a look!

Console

You could interchange a bench here depending on what you’re going to be using the entry for, but in most cases we think a console table is the way to go! It’s an extra surface to house frames, art, candles, light fixtures, vases and storage, which is great, especially if you don’t have many other surfaces for things like this throughout the rest of your home.

When looking for a console, consider the size of your space and what you’ll be using it for. Do you need (or want) to store extra seating (like a couple of stools) underneath? If so, go for one with no shelves underneath. Stools underneath a console can be a functional as well as an aesthetic choice for your entry.

If you need storage for shoes, books, boxes, baskets, etc, a console with one or more shelves may be right for you.

Mirror

A mirror is an essential component for any entryway in our opinion! Not only does it make the space feel bigger and add another design element to the room, it’s always good to get a last glance at yourself before you head out the door, are we right?! 😉 Make a statement with a bigger mirror, or have a smaller one in a vignette with other frames and wall decor.

Key/Coat Storage

In terms of entryway functionality, having a place to hang your keys, purse, coats, etc. right when you get in is a great way to keep things organized. You don’t have to have a basic old wall mounted coat rack, though- have this be a part of your decor! There are lots of great looking wall mounted storage options to choose from that look good and work well.

Rug

Having some sort of rug in your entry, whether it’s a runner or another sized area rug depending on the size of your space, is a great way to add another element to your entry’s design, as well as having the functionality of catching the debris from outside. We love giving the entry rug a pop of pattern or color to really make a statement when you first enter a home!

Lighting

Depending on how high your ceiling is, you can either go with flush-mount or a pendant/chandelier. Don’t be afraid to go bold with this fixture! Even though it does need to mesh with the rest of your home’s aesthetic, the entryway is a place to show off your style.

If you have a large enough console, a table lamp can also be a great option! Use one on one side with other pieces such as a vase or candles to balance the vignette, or flank both sides of the console with lamps, placing a bowl on top of a stack of books for a more symmetrical look.

Although the entry can be a tricky space to pin down, it can also be one of the most fun spaces to design. We hope this has given you a few ideas if you’re in need of an entryway spruce up!
