DIY Summer Florals

floral

The summer season brings with it a whirlwind of florals we only have the opportunity to see during this time of year.  While it gives us a chance to work with new materials to create a show-stopping centerpiece, it will only last so long.  The faux flowers available at Paul Michael Company make it easy to update arrangements season to season with the option of recycling different pieces.  Follow along with our how-to video and learn how to create a spring or summer arrangement that will last year after year!  Click for needed materials here.

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.

Mirror, Mirror On the Wall

Bedrooms are often the most private rooms in the house, making them the most personal.  One’s personal style is  usually best reflected in the bedroom, so adding bedding and headboards to our product offerings for the Spring 2015 season gave our designers the opportunity to fully dive into experimenting with bedroom looks for the first time in our stores.

For our first bedroom photoshoot we really wanted to go for something unexpected.  Using some fairy tale inspiration, our designers created a sophisticated and striking sleep space.

Sofa Styling Tips

It happens to the best of us…sometimes you just get stuck in a design rut. You feel like you’ve made an investment and that you need to stick with it. Well if you start out by buying some neutral basics it’s fairly easy and inexpensive to give it an update! You can completely transform a room by changing out the accessories. Take a look at how we styled the same sofa three different ways.

1. Monochromatic

Paul Michael Company + Updated Traditional + Grey +Modern

Use the same color in different shades to create a harmonious palette. Jazz it up by mixing patterns and textures. When mixing patterns remember that scale is your friend. If you select patterns with different scales then you won’t have to worry about them trying to compete…no one wants a pillow fight, or do they?

2. Personality Plus

Paul Michael Company + Gypsetter + Global +Tribal

If you are into a more eclectic approach to design, incorporate items you picked up on trips or inherited from family. If you hate your grandmother’s table and can rarely find the time to travel, no worries we’ve got you covered! You can get the “collected” look you desire by shopping at our stores or online at http://www.paulmichael.company.com

3. Pop of Color

Paul Micael Company + Cozy Colonial

This nearly neutral arrangement has a lot of spunk and just a little bit of color. We love mixing the warm red hues with a cool blue. It’s a nice contrast with an Americana flair. Notice how the white gourd lamps and plates give this mostly rustic look a refined feel.

At the Paul Michael Company we have a variety of items that will separate your home from your neighbor’s. We know that this is your most personal space and we want to help you create a home that is comfortable and stylish…just like you!
