I have been scouring the land of Pinterest for ideas on how I can decorate my new house once we sell our current house and move. I have seen so many cute ideas I can incorporate into my dream home. While Pinterest is great, I eventually actually want to find the perfect pieces for my home so I have been visiting local furniture stores to get some ideas.
I recently heard about some Home Fashion Workshops hosted at my local Havertys store. God knows I can use all the decorating tips I can get, so I headed over a couple of Saturdays ago to check it out. This particular Saturday’s focus was on accessorizing your home. Havertys has just launched several pieces in their A La Carte line that I absolutely fell in love with.
Check out this amazing trunk:
I love the versatility of this trunk. It could be used in a living room as a coffee table as well as storage in a bedroom. I would probably use it in my kids’ room for stylish toy storage. I could see this piece in my house for a long time because of all the diverse ways I could use it.
I was also introduced to several other pieces in the collection that I continue to think about.
The Thistledown accent chest in the lower left hand corner was a piece that I fell in love with . The details on the chest give it a Parisian look that is soft and romantic and modern at the same time. It could be used in an entryway or as a buffet in a dining room. The Lancaster accent chest, in the middle row to the left, is another one of my favorite pieces. I love how the drawers are curved and the wood is almost white-washed. It would be a beautiful addition to a guest bedroom or a bathroom.
I learned a lot of great tips from my local store’s visual coordinator, Jeff, who ran the workshop. He suggested that these days we shouldn’t be afraid of mixing woods in a single room. In fact, a couple days after the workshop I read in one of my decor magazines that matching furniture is outdated and that mixing pieces will give your rooms personal style. I don’t know about you, but I naturally thought that a bedroom set would be the way to go, now I think it would be a lot more fun to mix in a few favorite finds. Jeff also suggested that every room should have a focal point, something that sticks out. He mentioned that a lot of designers will choose one black piece to add to every room that they decorate to accomplish this. Next month there is a whole workshop about Spring Colors and how to mix and match them, I plan on attending that one as well!
Jeff mentioned that one quick and easy way to update a room and to make a dramatic statement was to add a rug to your space. After the workshop I decided to check out Havertys selections of rugs, and I found one that I am dying to purchase.
Isn’t is wonderful? I really want a modern rug that has bright bold colors to it for my mom cave. This is exactly what I have been searching for. I can’t wait to put it in my room! I was very impressed with the collection at Havertys. I found a lot of interesting pieces that I can’t wait to come back and purchase after we move into our new house. Shopping is going to be fun, picking out what to take home is going to be a hard decision.
