Create a Contemporary Bedroom with our Room Designer!

Create a Contemporary Bedroom with our Room Designer!

Have you tried our Room Designer lately?

I’ve created a contemporary bedroom with gray, white, and silver accents. This room is inspired by the latest gloomy weather we’ve had on our side of the country.

Even something lacking in color can be beautiful!

No Roommate, No Dining Table

No Roommate, No Dining Table

Last week, my roommate moved out of the apartment we shared, which means that I lost about half the furniture I was using. It wasn’t earth-shatteringly disappointing, but it was kind of a bummer when I made breakfast the first day by myself and I had no table at which to eat. So over the weekend, I made it my number one priority to find myself a new dining table.

It didn’t take me long to find what I wanted. I needed something smaller, so it would fit in the combined dining/living space, and I needed it to have a fairly flexible style so that it would flow with various apartment or home designs. The Amisco Kai Wood Top Dining Table fit the bill exactly, from design to price. I was even able to choose the finishes and the shape of the table top. Once I combine it with the rummage-sale chairs that I’m repainting, I can finally stop eating breakfast on my couch and enjoy it at my new Amisco dining table.

Today’s post is courtesy of our sister-site, CarolinaRustica.com! I found this beautiful room and now you can get the look for yourself! Combining traditional elements like the tufted chair, and rustic pieces like the coffee table is a growing trend. Animal prints have been in and out of design for a long time, but I think this one is perfectly placed to give the room a chic look. Adding the white slip-cover sofa and shiny drum table also incorporate soft and flashy looks respectively.

Two Is Better Than One: The Storage Mirror

Two Is Better Than One: The Storage Mirror

A very good friend of mine is getting married next summer. So, as a dutiful companion and guest, I checked out her registry over the weekend to see what my options were for a gift. She had most of the usual items on it — new dishes, nice wine glasses, color-coordinated bathroom linens. But the item that really stood out to me was the jewelry-storage mirror. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one on a registry, and typically when I think of  mirrors with storage, they’re usually medicine cabinets.

I told her that I thought it was a really neat choice, and she just gushed about this mirror for a solid ten minutes. Apparently it’s one of her favorite items on her registry, so I went back to the site and bought it. If it makes her that happy, it’s worth the money. And who knows, maybe I’ll like it enough to buy one for myself!

Everyone has there own idea of a perfect bedroom, whether it be a mixture of dark woods and colorful textures, or a lighter look with simple patterns. Regardless of your style, everyone enjoys waking up in a beautiful bedroom.

To create that ideal bedroom, it starts with the bed. We have hundreds of beds from Classic Traditional to Coastal to Contemporary. I’ve picked out a few of my favorites to share!

The Carrera Collection from Lexington Is Here

The Carrera Collection from Lexington Is Here

One of my favorite brands on FurnitureCrate is Lexington. They make such an interesting variety of high-quality, upscale furniture, and it’s all gorgeous. If I had an unlimited amount of funds for decorating my house, I would furnish the entire place with Lexington — that’s how much I love it. There’s so much care and detail put into each piece, and the rich finishes and sophisticated veneers add a sense of depth that you can’t find in most furniture.

Recently, we began selling one of Lexington’s newest collections: Carrera. This is a gorgeous line that really speaks to contemporary tastes. Even though it doesn’t have the same kind of woodworking detail as some of their other collections, the sleek, straight lines and the even tone of the Carbon Gray finish help each piece make a statement in your home. This is the modern furniture that we’ve all been waiting for.

The Sectional You Can’t Replace

The Sectional You Can’t Replace

Out of everyone I knew growing up, I am the only one who moved back to the Metro Detroit area after college. This means that instead of hanging out with my friends on the weekends, I often hang out with their parents instead. So last weekend, I went furniture shopping with Christine’s parents. They are pretty good about not taking anything seriously, so we spent most of the time in the store making fun of the ridiculous display of ugly vases. The real reason they were there was to look for a new sectional.

See, I think their current sectional is pretty great, and I told them so. They have a Corsario Leather Sectional, which has been in their living room for years, and I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve spent the night on that sectional. It’s super comfortable, and it’s still in really good shape. If I had room for it in my apartment, I probably would have done my best to actually help them find a new sectional so that I could take the Corsario for myself.

After much wheedling and convincing, I got them to see my side. While they wanted to change up the look of their living room, they had to admit that other than that, there was no real reason to get a different sectional. So even though none of my friends are nearby, at least my favorite sectional still is.
