Wet Your Whistle

WET_WHISTLE

The winter season has us longing for feelings of warmth while transitioning into the new year, but the absence of a tree in the corner and stockings hanging from the mantle can leave the house feeling bare.  To overcome that feeling of an empty home combined with the spirit of winter hot toddies, we put together this “Wet Your Whistle” look for our latest photoshoot.  Our goal was to create a warm yet sophisticated look one might find at a cigar bar in Brooklyn.

A PMC Fall Porch: Make the most of your space

Fall_porch

Cooler nights are finally becoming a regular occurrence here down south, and that means enjoying the fall evenings outside with good company, tasty food, and eye-catching, fall decor.

Pumpkins have been a staple in fall arrangement for centuries and it’s safe to say that isn’t changing any time soon.  Mixing pumpkins with different textures and colors creates some colorful eye-candy and keeps things interesting during the pumpkin filled season.

While pumpkins are the go-to fall decor item, incorporating other natural tones to your arrangement will double the impact and keep your eyes entertained no matter what angle!  Make an impression no matter the size of your space with some inspiration from our Paul Michael Company fall porch.

Take Home Decor to the Next Level with High Flying Birds!

Some people like spring above all of the other seasons. We start seeing the sun a bit more, flowers start blooming, birds start chirping. It’s an exciting time of the year, so why not bring a little spring into your own home?

One of the best ways to do this is through spring colors and bird motifs.

Painting a few actual size bird mosaics, either in flight or perching on branches, your choice, will bring that lively vibrant spring energy into your home. Of course a similar effect can be achieved by using wall decals, but a painted mural is a unique way to match the color and excitement of spring.

You can also adorn your home with a variety of tree or bird sculptures or statuettes that can be used to give a room a nice vibe. Birds such as sparrows are very trendy at the moment.

Add Water to Your Landscape

There is nothing that creates a more welcoming ambiance for a garden than a delightful water feature. As more homeowners spend time “staycationing” at home, outdoor water features have become very popular and attractive additions to their outdoor living spaces.

Fountains and birdbaths are generally the best suited for a wide variety of different landscapes. No matter what type of water feature you are thinking about installing, there are several considerations you should keep in mind.

Placement
Choose a location near your home, to allow your family to enjoy it from indoors or on a patio. However, locate it far enough away from your house to reduce possible water damage. While many homeowners keep their fountain installation away from trees, to avoid leaf debris, others specifically locate their birdbaths near trees, to provide a safe exit for their feathered friends.

Utilities
A water supply and electricity are the basic minimums for most types.

Accessories
Create a complete outdoor retreat with your water feature by complementing it with comfortable seating, wind chimes, lush plantings and interesting outdoor art. Paul Michael Home offers a variety of beautiful fountains and birdbaths, as well as Coastal Living merchandise to enhance your garden retreat.

How About a Spunky Trunk from Paul Michael Home?

You would be amazed at what you can do with a recycled trunk!  A vintage trunk from can make the perfect coffee table or end table for your living room.  Old steamer trunks add personality and storage to any room and complement any decor.

The flat or rounded lids on many trunks were often decorated with leather or wood-burned designs, and feature brass hinges, studs and latches.  They were the designer luggage of an earlier era, and now they can add a designer touch to your home.

A vintage design steamer trunk can be used to store linens and blankets at the foot of your bed.  A trunk standing on end is the perfect night stand, especially if you add a small tension rod or some shelves on the inside to create extra storage.  A trunk with a rounded lid can look like a pirate’s treasure chest, making it a great toy box for a playroom.

Visit Paul Michael Company’s stores to see the new collection of old “spunky trunks” for your home.

 

Fun Spring Centerpiece Ideas

The table centerpiece is a great way to add a personal and creative touch to your table layout and interior design as a whole. The following are a few unique centerpiece ideas that are perfect for the spring season.

  • Flower Bouquet: A flower bouquet is the standard go-to centerpiece, but instead of carefully arranging the flowers, group them together by type in order to create a more natural look. Use the blossoms from your flowering shrubs along with your own garden’s flowers instead of going to a florist.
  • Poppy Bouquet: To introduce a bold dash of color with your centerpiece, use a tall vase full of poppy flowers. There’s a price for their extravagant color though; they’ll only last a few days.
  • Tea Cup Vase: Tea cups tend to be charming in themselves, so why not use them as a centerpiece? Place a small flower arrangement in a teacup and sit it on it’s saucer.
  • Bottled Fern Fronds: This one is beautiful in its simplicity. Simply take a wine, olive oil or vinegar bottle, remove the labels and place fern fronds inside.

Visit us at Paul Michael Company to pick up accessories perfect for your spring centerpieces.

Inspired by Pinterest: Cool Ideas for Recycled Glass Jars

One of the most common containers found in stores and homes alike are often overlooked for their storage capabilities. Take a look in your cupboards and discover how many items you have that are in jars. Each one of these containers come in a variety of shapes and sizes which can stylishly be reused.

A simple glass jar can become fashionable and functional. You can easily label them with a simple slip of paper, but why stop there? Consider placing a design on the outside of it with a stencil or other craft items. Use a clear or colored glass container to display fun items inside.

There are many stencils on the market and glass paint is available at your local craft store. You can also consider chalkboard paint so you can relabel your jars again as much as you like. Remember, how you arrange them is half the fun so put them somewhere equally as creative to showoff your masterpiece.

At the Paul Michael Company, we have wonderful inspiration and options to help you decorate and organize your home or office. If you are looking for ideas for decor, or methods to decorate your empty containers, visit our Facebook page to find out more.
