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.

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.

 

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!

Decorative Winter Wreaths

Although there is a connection between the winter holidays and decorative wreaths, a wreath can be successfully implemented into tasteful decoration during any season. Experimenting with alternative materials, various color schemes, and cute themes, you can craft something impressive with minimal time and effort.

Stay winter ready with a beautiful holiday wreath

A comfortable, traditional, feeling can be inspired by a well-constructed wreath in dark browns and neutral tones. Consider using a retired wheel as the base for your project and supplementing it with natural items such as sticks, leaves, and berries.

Bright flowers, colorful herbs, and man-made decorative accessories can combine for an uplifting and fun summer wreath. Try to stick to a monochromatic theme and match existing atmosphere or even use small, fresh, fruits for a novel appeal, though this may cause for a short-lived wreath.

You can also make wreathes for other holidays.  For example, folding together green, purple, and yellow ribbon into a bushy wreath sets a lovely Mardi Gras tone. It can be accentuated with bright baubles, bells, beads, and balls to add a festive touch and adorning the wreath with appropriate masks will pull the message together.

For unique materials and inspiration for your next wreath project, be sure to stop by Paul Michael Company.  We have stores in Lake Village, AR; Canton, TX; Monroe, LA; and Lafayette, LA.  Be sure to visit us on Facebook!

Decorating with Vases to Make a Statement Tablescape

Attractive home decor is a matter of blending shapes, color, and texture. Decorating with vases, and their infinite geometry, colors, and materials makes a stunning table display. Try these ideas to display your unique vases in lovely arrangements in your home.

Try adding a vase to your home decor.

Image via Pinterest

  • Pick a large-based, wide-mouthed tall vase. Place a single candle in a holiday color. Or, fill the vase with sea shells, small crystals, river stones, or preserved fruit. Use the contents to support seasonal flowers or a flat candle on top
  • Choose a medium width, tall, and clear vase. Put gravel in bottom and a live fish or water plant in the clear water above. Place small stones in the bottom to support dried flowers with long stems. Stuff it with varicolored sheets of tissue paper. Or, plant a blooming tulip or other bulb flower in a small base of soil.
  • Now, you can simply multiply the vases described above into a cluster of varying widths and heights. However, you might consider spray painting the bottles in individual colors, wrapping them in ribbon or hemp, or covering them with decoupage or lace. Using candles in such displays accents the color and textures used.

Of course, to decorate with vases, you first need to find interesting pieces to display. Paul Michael Company has a variety of antiques and unusual housewares for your home.  Just stop by one of our stores and check us out on Facebook for more information.

Unexpected Kitchen Color Combinations That Work

The last decade of kitchen design has seen a strong trend in antique and nautical whites, granite and marble counter tops, and stainless steel appliances. That’s been an extremely popular mix, but designers and homeowners are beginning to infuse some lively accent tones for some buoyant variety. We at Paul Michael Company love unique and crafty designs, so we were excited  to find this collection of creative kitchen designs.

One kitchen uses a cottage pallet with beige and light brown walls, a weathered white island with a thick, natural butcher’s block top, and slate green cabinetry. Other kitchens pair grays with blue accents, presenting both cool and comfortable atmospheres. Two-inch backsplash tiles, especially semi-transparent glass, make colorful statements in any kitchen.  Bold colors, including maroons, greens, and even some purples, can be used as stunning accents throughout the kitchen.

The Pantone Institute announced emerald green as the color for 2013, and a confluence of cabinets and appliance cladding in rich, warm woods help produce an inviting cooking environment. Some of the vintage, turn-of-the-century pastel greens are showing up again, but with state-of-art components. The vibrant green works well set off with pine counters and some touches of gray. We’re also seeing a lot of open shelving that exhibits some colorful glass and dishware accents, which is a great solution if you don’t want to change the color of the kitchen itself but still want to include some bright accents.

You can find supplies to bring some creative design elements into your kitchen at one of the Paul Michael Company store locations. Be sure to check us out on Facebook and share your own creative kitchen design ideas!
