This is Part 1 of a series of posts on DIY home decor for Vermont’s second home owners.
Second Homes in Vermont
Second home sales in Vermont are booming. Last weekend, Ken and I took a drive through Wilmington & Dover in southeastern Vermont, home to resort communities like The Hermitage Club, Mount Snow and Stratton Mountain. New homes & developments are everywhere in the Deerfield Valley, especially luxury second homes and vacation homes.
More than just storage, I’ve come across creative uses of sideboards & buffets and I’m sharing them with you!
Before I worked in the furniture industry, I looked at China Cabinets and sideboards as clunky furniture that my parents stored their fancy fine china in. I didn’t look at them as a necessary piece of furniture. Now though, I know just important they are and how useful they can be!
We always put so much focus on the tabletop, but what about those legs?
I’m a perfectionist by nature and attention to detail has always been something I pride myself on. That being said, it can make doing things, like shopping for a new dining table, a challenge sometimes. I tend to be really indecisive because I like knowing what I’m choosing is the best possible product for me. I take everything from color, material used, shape, size and design into consideration. But what about the base of a table? It can aesthetically make or break a room, so why do the table tops get all of the attention?
With so many options, there’s no need to shop anywhere else-especially during our Spring Dining Room Furniture Sale!
From Shaker to Mission, Modern Mid-century to Contemporary and Traditional, we have it all. Are you looking for a table that is strong and simple in design or are you looking for something to make a statement. Are you going for a rustic style dining room or sophisticated and elegant? Do you have a small space but don’t want to compromise the quality of your dining furniture?
You may be wondering how can Rustic and Industrial design cohabitate. Chic rustic furniture tends to have a handmade feel to it and has often been distressed and given a worn look if not truly vintage. A room styled with a rustic theme will often have mismatched furniture and give off a charming country atmosphere if done right.
Industrial designed furniture tends to look more modern and contemporary, using metals and dark colors. It looks sleek and cool and can sometimes seem sterile if not styled properly. So what do you get when you combine the two? Design genius in my opinion!
