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.

Using Emerald In Home Decor

It’s time to trade out those tangerine tango pillow covers for emerald because Pantone named its 2013 color of the year. Emerald is a particularly bright and energetic tone of green, and its connection to the gorgeous gemstone adds a luxurious element to its hue.  It’s a warm, versatile color that can transform a classically conservative design to a fresh and modern look. Here are some suggestions for using emerald in your home décor.

Make a splash

An accent wall is one of the easiest ways to incorporate emerald in home décor. All you need is a can of emerald paint and a roller. Remember that for living room and bedroom walls, matte paint eliminates glare. For bathrooms, high gloss paint is easier to clean and is moisture-resistant.

Cover up

Use emerald-accented pillow covers and throws on your sofa and armchairs. These items come in all price points.

Details

Pull your look together by decorating your rooms with emerald-accented wall art, vases and – the  most ubiquitous emerald item of them all — houseplants. Plants that come in this hue include pothos (devil’s ivy), English ivy, ferms and aglaonema (emerald beauties).

At Paul Michael Company, we’d love to help you find or create unique emerald accents for your home decor.  Stop by one of our store locations or check us out on Facebook for more information!

Industrial Lighting Trend Continues to Shine

Lighting is the easiest and most economical way to update interiors designs. A simple switch or addition of a light fixture can completely change the look and feel of a room. And for the past few years, industrial lighting seems to be lighting up the pages of every design magazine. This trend is showing no signs of burning out anytime soon, too.

Industrial lighting is the perfect way to add a touch of sophisticated edginess to any style interiors. As Houzz design writer Wendy Hyde put it, industrial lighting is “bold enough to make a statement, yet quiet enough for those who just want to get their feet wet in the style.”

Here are some examples of how you can update interiors with industrial lighting.

 

Hang industrial pendant fixtures above the kitchen island.

Opt for an industrial style chandelier over a casual dining table.

An Easy Handmade Wreath Perfect for Summer Decor

The manager of the Paul Michael Company store in Monroe, Louisiana – Kate Roane – recently shared a wonderfully creative idea on our Facebook page for a charming DIY ribbon wreath. We loved it so much, we wanted to share it on our blog to make sure all of our customers and followers see it!

This decorative ribbon wreath is simply delightful and simple to make! Start with 5 to 8 different rolls of colorful ribbon, scissors and a circular object that you can recycle or repurpose into a wreath. Then, cut several 12- to 16-inch pieces of your ribbon and begin tying them around the working wreath. Straighten the tails of the different ribbon ties to go in opposite directions creating a fan effect. Fill the entire wreath; the more ribbon the merrier! Finally, add a personal touch by using wire to attach a fun welcome sign or piece of art.

Helpful Solutions for Small Spaces

We have a number of items great for home organization at Paul Michael Company.

Smaller living spaces mean less to clean and maintain, and by following some of the tips listed below, you still have plenty of room for storage.

  • Low bookcases resting along the back of a sofa double as both a display for treasured items as well as a chic sofa table.
  • Choose a sturdy, well made ottoman that can also be used as a coffee table.
  • Window seats, under bed drawers and enclosed cabinets are great for storing linens and other bulky items.
  • No closet space? Buy a wooden ladder, paint to match your décor, and use as a shoe rack. Practical and pretty!
  • Hallways make the perfect storage area. Line with floor-to-ceiling bookcases or other storage furniture for everything from dishes and kitchen items to toiletries.
  • Remember the lighter the better. Get rid of heavy dark drapes, paint rooms in light neutral hues, keep color schemes to monochromatic except for a few splashes of accent colors, and hang mirrors to reflect light and open up the living space.

Like some of the tips listed above? Stop by any of our four convenient Paul Michael Company locations to get started on simplifying your living space.

Georgia Pellegrini Features Paul Michael Co. Furnishings

Georgia Pellegrini, author of Girl Hunter, recently highlighted her trip to Lake Village, AR on her blog, and included details on her time spent at the Paul Michael Company workshop. First, we want to give Georgia a big thank you for featuring us on her blog!

Everyone else, be sure to check out her post on Lake Village. Here’s a small excerpt from what she included of this visit:

“And then I visited Paul Michael’s workshop. I’ve been there before and showed you what he builds and what he works on every day. It’s recycled beautiful things that he repurposes into furniture. I loved this piece especially. It would be lovely in a bathroom full of linens and soaps and trinkets.”

Head over to her blog to see more pictures and information on some of the Paul Michael furnishings she saw.
