Accessory Furniture Pieces
Make your room feel new again, by adding one or all of these great accessories!

 

To make your bedroom feel new again, you don’t need to hire a designer and do a total makeover. There are several fun and simplistic things you can do to give your bedroom that freshness you’ve been craving!

1. Decorative pillows: Prices can range from super high end to nice and affordable. My favorite place to shop for new decorative pillows is the local thrift store. Mix & match for an eclectic look, sure to bring new life into your space.

2: Plants: Literally bring life into your bedroom! When things are feeling a little dull and uninspiring, introduce your favorite houseplant to your bedroom. They’re nice to look at, and many are super good for your health!

3. Accessorize with wood furniture: There’s a lot of wood furniture than can be used in a variety of different ways. This beautiful Copeland dining chair is very versatile, and would nicely complement your bedroom furniture! Put a pillow on top of it or leave it on its own, the beauty of this chair speaks for itself and makes a truly stylish accent piece.

4. Change your hardware: Are you currently using regular, cheap hardware for your windows & etc? Switch over to something a little more stylish! There are many options for high quality curtain rods & accessories.

5. Temporary Wallpaper. From bold and daring to modest and traditional, there is a temporary wallpaper for you. Add a statement wall or use it all across the entire bedroom to give you a totally new look without much cost or effort!

Zen Furniture | The Cherry Moon Collection

Why we call it Zen Furniture:

Zen is a way of being and a state of mind. It involves dropping illusion and seeing things without the distortion of judgement created by our own thoughts. So what does that have to do with wood furniture? Our Cherry Moon Bedroom Collection reflects this Zen idea by cutting things down to the essentials. It isn’t overly adorned or decorated, it’s simple and undistracting. It doesn’t need anything extra to be beautiful, it just “is”. It isn’t trying to trick you with fancy bells and whistles, it purely exists as a beautiful, natural collection that any Zen Furniture lover can appreciate.

Zen Furniture | The Cherry Moon Collection

Zen Furniture is Natural and Organic

The Vermont Craftsmen who carefully craft this furniture make sure to use natural, premium  hardwoods to make this collection. The natural characteristics of the Cherry wood can be admired in every detail. Each piece is made with care, just for you. This gives this your furniture extra value because you have a direct connection to the trees from which it came from. When looking at the furniture, you are reminded that it came from a sustainably harvested forest, and each tree was consciously selected to be turned into furniture for your home.

Pay Attention to The Details

This collection marries traditional craftsman style with a relaxed, zen fusion aesthetic giving you a look that is elegant and cozy, yet clean and uncluttered. It’s defined by understated simplicity and unique detailing. Rich black walnut, half-moon drawer pulls complement our cherry, maple, and walnut hardwood furnishings. Reverse-tapered legs, posts and an intricate cove under the tops round out the design to give any room of your home a comforting and natural feeling of elegance.

Mod Outdoor Furniture

Your porch or patio is a great place to entertain guests, dine, and relax with your friends and family.  Even a simple backyard can be transformed into a beautiful secondary living space when designed well! Simple upgrades in your outdoor furniture, lighting, and decor can turn your space from plain to inspiring in no time!

Here are some great outdoor furniture ideas to help you plan your space:

1. Think about what you use your space for, or what you want to use your space for the most in the future. Do you want it to be a relaxing place for your family? A place to entertain friends and host parties? A nice spot to spend time alone and read? Think about what you envision the space being. This will dictate the decisions you make about your outdoor furniture & decor.

2. Draw out your space. Measuring your space is imperative in buying outdoor furniture because you need to know the exact amount of space you have available before you start buying. Go out to your space and analyze what the typical traffic patterns will be. Do you need a lot of room for people to walk around? Take notes on highly trafficked areas you’d like to keep clear.

3. Browse Pinterest & other inspiration sites for all of the elements you’d like to see on your patio space. Think about food– do you need a grill, decorative wood serving bowls, or dining tables & chairs? How about your lighting–candles are always a great option for a romantic and dreamy outdoor space. Hanging string lights are festive and bring life into the space. Get a piece of paper, browse Pinterest & take note of all of the different things you love about porch and patio decor.

4. Consider the climate. Will your outdoor furniture & decor need to be weather resistant? If your patio furniture will be exposed to harsh heat, cold, winds, rain, etc… you might want to consider products that are maintenance free and can survive throughout even the most severe weather conditions! Do a little browsing online and you’ll find great outdoor rugs to keep the floor looking stylish and resistant to the weather too! If your furniture, rugs, etc, will be exposed to rain and wetness, don’t use any fabrics that will mold or decay over time!

5. Colors. Choose color schemes that bring out the personality of your space and your home! We love the bright blue of this ultra modern outdoor furniture set–accented by the blue water of the pool. Think about your space and the feeling you want your porch or patio to give your guests, and find colorful furniture and decor to match it! Browse Pinterest for inspiration.

Stay tuned for more updates on the perfect outdoor furniture style for you & your space!
