Going Grey: How to Decorate with This Popular Neutral

Grey has been gaining popularity lately as a neutral of choice. In fact, you may have heard magazines, bloggers or interior designers say, “grey is the new beige,” and we certainly think this soft mix of black and white is a beautiful tone in home design.

If you’re loving the trend but not ready to commit to it with paint on the walls, think about adding grey to your décor via accessories like pillows and rugs.

A grey pillow or two on the guest bed will show visitors you’re definitely in style!

Or if you want to bring the neutral front and center, check out our post on decorating the sofa with throw pillows.

Check Out the Fresh Look at Paul Michael Stores

All of the Paul Michael Company stores have undergone a makeover!

In addition to lots of new furniture, there are more Easter items and an expanded Creation Station where designers are making the cutest fresh spring and Easter wreaths. We even installed a how-to video in the Monroe location so you can watch how to make a wreath yourself! (You can also check out our Whimsical Wreath Workshop video in this post on working with mesh.)

All the stores also have designated sections now, including Modern and Chic, Farmer’s Market, Going Global, By the Sea, English Cottage, Here Comes the Bride and Easter parade. The products in these areas go along with the theme.

Nearly everyone who’s come in has noticed the new look and can’t believe it. We hope you’ll visit to see the makeovers, too! We have store locations in Lake Village, AR; Monroe, LA; Lafayette, LA; and Canton, TX.

Colorful Holiday Décor Beyond Red and Green

Now that it’s November, most people have started thinking about their holiday decorating. Among all the tips and ideas out there, design magazine House Beautiful took an interesting spin, offering its “Top Holiday Decorating Don’ts.” Here’s one of their important recommendations to keep in mind: “Don’t limit yourself to red and green.”

Of course, if you love these tried and true colors, we’re all for them. But if you’re trying to match another color scheme or just be different this year, we say go for it! Bright pinks, purples and blues and metallic gold, silver and copper are all fun color choices to embrace for holiday decorating. Here’s a look at some of the holiday décor we have in this year at Paul Michael Company—it touches on nearly every color of the rainbow!

There’s no rule saying you have to stick to red and green. Just have fun and be creative! Which colors are you decorating with this holiday season?

The Creation Station is in session at Paul Michael Company. Our hands are like little machines helping Santa’s elves decorate for the season.

It’s so much fun to watch the designers create your own original wreath or garland. Take a look at a few of the wreaths that have been made this year, and just imagine all the possibilities!
