Chevron Accents Can Make Home Decor Pop

You are probably already using stripes in home décor nowadays, as many homeowners already do. But do you really want to? Do you really find them appealing? What about adding a pattern that is different and unique? Chevron accents are a huge trend in the design industry and rightly so. Chevron patterns offer the clean, simplistic look of stripes, but in a more dramatic fashion.

Though not new, chevron patterns still offer the element of surprise. Many people have not thought to decorate with the pattern yet. Especially when used as accents and details, chevron patterns offer a contemporary, stylish look for a home.

Bring Spring Home with Pretty Pastels

pastel furniture

Welcome spring with pastel furniture!

The hot new colors showing up in current home decorating ideas are not really hot at all. They are pastels that remind us of candy and ice cream. In the right color combinations, these soft pretty colors become sophisticated palettes.


When used on ceilings and walls, pale blue, mint green and creamy yellow offer a soft backdrop for furniture and accessories. Mix them with stronger hues of purple, navy, brown or black to create depth and sophistication.

Fabrics and Rugs

Find a wonderful pastel print, and build the rest of the room around it. Large patterns are great for rugs or large upholstered pieces. Let them stand out as the room’s focal point, and use solid colors or small prints to finish out the room.

Art and Accessories

A painting in pastel hues provides a great way to introduce smaller touches of color into the room. Choose one color in the painting and use it on a lamp, vase or throw pillows. Introduce pastel hues through books, glassware or fresh flowers. Keep a lot of white or ivory in the room for neutrality.

White Home Design Paves the Way for Colorful Accessories

Bold, colorful pillows pop against a white background

White serves as a great foundation color for home design in almost any setting to create a sophisticated and practical look. You can then use any variety of colorful accessories to brighten up the room. Consider some of the following ideas to incorporate white into your home.

  • The kitchen. Painted white walls and cabinetry provide a neutral palette on which colorful accents stand out. Ideas include a simple piece of wooden furniture, a rug and brightly colored, seasonal food.
  • White and dark gray. The two contrasting tones create a sense of elegance that works perfectly for the bedroom. Fashion this look with bedding, black and white photographs, and stylish, modern lamps.
  • Interesting accessories. Develop a colorful room with accessories that cohere with the furnishings, and create a cheerful appearance.
  • White on white. Make an impressive statement by hanging white artwork on white walls.
  • Dark furniture. A white room creates an ideal backdrop to show off dark furnishings. Add just a dash of color to the room, with a simple bouquet of single-toned flowers.

You can find colorful accessories to complement your decor at your nearest Paul Michael Company location.

Home Decor: Wild About Stripes!

Stripes are versatile enough to be used in anything from contemporary to traditional designs. They can be used to create a sense of elegance, or to make an impact. Think about it – stripes can really be used in any room of the house on walls, pillows, rugs, windows, lampshades and even ceilings.

Why not consider some of these home decorating ideas using stripes for your own home?

  • Vertical stripes. Popular in the past, vertical stripes continue to appear in modern trends for their ability to make ceilings appear higher, and create a classic look of elegance. Tone-on-tone designs appear gentle and beautiful, while contrasting colors are highly striking.
  • Horizontal stripes. Used more in modern designs, horizontal stripes create a sense of width in a room. Perfect for casual rooms, these stripes develop a sense of fun.
  • Avoid clashing colors. Stripes are great for making a statement without the need for clashing colors that can make a room cluttered and confused.
  • Complementing decor. Solid-toned furnishings are best used in a room with stripes to ensure the atmosphere does not become too busy.

Spring Into the New Season with Unique Home Accents

Invite spring in with a burst of color in your home

Spring, although not officially here yet, offers great home decorating ideas since it gives life to animals, plants and to us! When the temperatures begin to rise again, animals come out of hibernation, seeds sprout into plants and flowers bloom like never before. People can finally enjoy the wonderful nature while outdoors.

Your home too should be as lively. Forget the warm and dull colors of yester-season, and say hello to bright varieties that give your rooms a rebirth. Transform your rooms and outdoor spaces with these home decorating ideas!

  • Fresh flowers in the indoors always give a bright atmosphere. Do not limit yourself with the color choice as long as they smell good.  Put them in clear glass vases to add a little sophistication. Outdoors, you can have flowers growing in beautiful pots.
  • Different species of plants also help in bringing life to an area. Have them growing in pots that blend with the colors of your walls.
  • If live plants are too much for you to maintain, simply use silk flowers.
  • Use stuffed animals in your rooms, which will “feed” on plants for a fun and unexpected theme. For example a stuffed bunny could be conveniently place right next to your growing carrots!

Use Storybook Inspiration for a Whimsical Home Design

There are plenty of cute and quirky accessories at Paul Michael Company for your little one’s room

Decorating and designing a nursery at home is full of creative possibilities that go far beyond the use of blue vs. pink. Using inspiration from storybooks is a magnificent way to put a stamp on your child’s room based on the fairy tales we all know and love!

Nurseries are commonly filled with focal points on the ceiling to facilitate the development of their senses.  As children grow, we encourage their imagination with unique decorating ideas based on their own favorite storybook themes. Inspiring ideas might come from The Jungle Book decor. Or what about a dinosaur theme for a boy, and an enchanted castle theme for a girl?

In order to create the nursery or child’s room of your dreams, you’ll need to find the right quirky accessories. And you can find all that and more at one of our Paul Michael Company locations in LA, AR and TX! You can also visit us on Facebook to see what we’re all about.

Decorating Your Walls with Hanging Area Rugs

Stunning rugs available at Paul Michael Company

Your home is your space to do with what you want. Who says area rugs have to go on the floor? Make a statement by hanging one on the wall!

Indeed, rugs are versatile – probably more so than you originally thought. If you can’t quite wrap your head around the idea of placing a rug anywhere but underneath your feet, these ideas might help to change your mind.

  • If you have an old, much loved rug that is too worn out to put on the floor – you can use it on the wall. This will keep it from looking old due to foot traffic.
  • You can play around with different sizes of rugs – you may have a small one, triangular one or even a square one, and you can hang it on an appropriate wall.
  • A hanging rug can be used as a focal point or serve as a demarcating area between two living areas.
  • In case you want to use more than one rug in a room, make sure that they complement each other.
  • Just keep some unique decorating ideas in mind – use either plain or subdued colors if your room already has a busy décor or vice versa.

A wall hanging rug adds texture and warmth to your house. Looking for rugs to decorate your walls? Check out on of our stores today!
