3 Ways to Use Pantone’s Color of the Year in Your Home

Pantone’s color of the year famously inspires interior designers and decorators alike to mix up their palette each year and try something new. For 2019, Living Coral is the new hue du jour. Equally bright and bold, coral automatically refreshes any room and provides a lively touch. Because it’s such a powerful shade, we’re providing you with three ways to make the 2019 color of the year work for you, no matter your comfort level.

1. Big Statement – Paint

Give a mudroom door or a forgotten wall a chance to pop by painting it coral. This is perfect for those who want to embrace this color in a big way. Here, an entryway is given new life by a coral door that immediately attracts attention.

2. Playful Pops – Art, Rugs & Decor

Use coral-hued artwork, rugs, or a lamp to brighten up a room. Coral seamlessly blends with neutrals and other colors for an easy interior update. In this room, bold, minimalist artwork and a fun rug both incorporate coral and work together to liven up a living room.

3. Everchanging Accessories – Textiles & Florals

For those inspired by coral but hesitant to make the first move, accessories easily bring this color to a room without the commitment. Pillow covers, throws, and stunning floral centerpieces effortlessly instill the energy of coral into a space while being easy to change up when the mood strikes. Here, vivid color is added via beachy coral sculptures and coordinating throws and pillow covers.

Color Trend: Warm Tones

As summer turns to fall, it’s only fitting that your home should reflect the changing seasons. The colors we decorate with influence our mood and affect how we interact with our space. Warm tones, such as reds, oranges, yellows and gold, evoke a sense of liveliness and intimacy. They give spaces more energy and make them more inviting, which is perfect as we enter the holiday season.

To prepare for the dropping temperatures, here are 4 easy ways to add touches of warmth throughout your home.

1. Switch Out Pillows & Throws

Add soft touches of warmth, in both color and texture. Pillows are an unexpected addition to your dining room, and every living room needs a cozy throw blanket for when temperatures drop. It’s the simplest way to change up a room.

2. Lay Down a New Rug

Start from the ground up and incorporate warm tones underfoot. Rugs are an easy way to change the color palette and tone of a room. Choose something durable for high-traffic areas and something a little plusher for relaxing spaces.

3. Place Purposeful Decor

Golden-hued accents brighten a room and echo the hues of leaves outside. A gold lamp warmly reflects light, while a brass serving tray is the ideal piece for displaying pinecones or seasonal trinkets.

4. Create a New Personal Gallery

Choose a collection of wall art that brings in warm tones and holiday colors. Think golden brown, pumpkin orange or cranberry red. And remember – framing is important, too. Choose brass or gold for the ultimate autumnal aesthetic.

5 Must-Have Products To Organize Your Space

Summer break comes and goes in a blink of an eye, and before you know it, preparation for going back to school and work is in full force.

We've put together a list of must-haves to ensure you're ahead of the game for creating an organized environment that is conducive to being at your very best, most productive self. We're firm believers that organization and a clean, well kept space is key to starting off the new season.

Whether it be adding in a sleek acrylic bookshelf or a variety of stylish boxes to keep clutter at bay, there are always ways to keep your space neat.

Here are five items that can help get your space spick and span for your new working season:

1. Acrylic Bookshelf

With each school year, we tend to accumulate more and more books, but there never seems to be enough space for all the old and new. Our designers recommend adding an Acrylic Leaning Bookshelf. This piece is truly the ideal combination of beauty, form, and function, giving those extra books and decorative accessories a home, while maintaining a chic and clean look.

2. Stacked Boxes

As school and work begins, so does the build-up of knick-knacks around your space. To manage the clutter, add in a variety of decorative boxes. Each box could be designated to a specific category, thus creating an organized work space.

3. Acrylic Trunks

Finding new ways to store the items you've collected can be a challenge. For a unique twist on organized storage, try adding an Acrylic Trunk, as these trunks offer more than extra space - they also function as a side table or a coffee table.

4. Desks

Arguably the most important component of getting organized for school and work is your desk. The Alton Trestle Desk or Contemporary Lacquer Desk are options that offer more than just good looks. They have great storage capabilities which will help keep your desk top spotless.

5. Acrylic Easel

Technology has increasingly become more integrated into education (and our daily lives). While reading an E-book or online article for work or class, the Acrylic Easel allows you to multitask when needed and maintains a light and airy presence. Place the easel on your desk while you are hard at work, or move it to the kitchen counter so that you could easily see the new recipe you are trying. The useful possibilities are endless!

How To: Setting Your Summer Table

It’s that time of year to pour yourself a cold drink and invite guests for delectable summer dining experience. We all love to host, but often times it's difficult to come up with a clever (and simple) way to set your table. Whether it be an indoor or outdoor gathering, the following designer tips will help you throw your best soirée of the season!

Choose a Color Scheme

A great place to begin is deciding the color scheme you'd like to showcase. Our designers chose a vibrant yellow paired with cool blue and lush, natural greens with wooden pieces. They'd added color by including accent pillows and colorful chairs to complement the table setting.

Mix & Match 

One way to spice up your table setting is to mix textures and patterns to achieve a setting that is as casual or elegant as you’d like. Our designers used rattan placemats to contrast with a smooth white ceramic plates. They also included blue & white Chinoiserie plates with yellow gingham napkins to for a sophisticated, yet fun take on pattern mixing.

Add Fresh Flowers

Flowers are a delightful addition to any table setting. The arrangement can be as simple or as complex as you would like. Place single tulips into glass vases for a minimalistic feel, or go above and beyond with a colorful mixture of hydrangeas, gerber daisies, and garden roses. (If your table setting is lacking vibrancy, flowers are a great and simple way to add pops of color.)

Select Chic Storage

Another great tip to limit the clutter on your summer table is to have a bar cart or console set up nearby for easy access to additional dining needs. Place your colorful glasses with your favorite beverages on rattan trays and add in fresh flowers to set up the perfect spot to grab a quick drink without having to escape to the kitchen.
