Today, I am sharing my favorite room settings in our ‘Country / Cottage / Lodge‘ Style.

Country / Cottage  is a style that gets its inspirational elements from all over the world, including English Country, French Country, Early American, Farmhouse and Cottage styles.

Lodge is a style that gets its inspiration from more remote areas such as mountains and the country side, or rivers and lakes that are less inhabited. It is often influenced by Western, Southwestern, Log Cabin and Alpine Lodge styles.

Check out these beautiful Country / Cottage / Lodge styled rooms!

Picking out Hardwood Floors!

Picking out Hardwood Floors!

It can be overwhelming when redesigning your home. There are so many options and little details that go into picking out everything, for example, picking out hardwood floors!

Between the type of wood, the wood pattern, the stain color, and the finish, there are hundreds of options! Depending on the wood you pick, the stain will look different, and the finish could look different depending those decisions. And whichever pattern you choose, along with the color and stain, it could look traditional or modern. So, like I said, it can all get a bit overwhelming.

So I went searching for some helpful guides with today’s most common options, lets see if I can make the process a little easier!

Wood Type: while Oak is very common, these are some other woods that are also very popular. As you can see, each wood has different grain patterns, and some are more contrasting than others. Right now, I’m only looking at the aesthetics, but there are many characteristics of each wood to consider when picking out one for your home (a topic for a future post, perhaps!?!)

Wood Stains: Here are some examples of common wood stains on 2 different woods. The first is on Oak , the second on Hickory. The results are beautiful, and so different, with each combination!

Floor Patterns: most people use the traditional plank style, easy decision right? Not exactly! The width you choose can affect the overall style of the room. Here are your most common options.

Alternative Floor Patterns: In case your style doesn’t fit in the ‘most common’ category…

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!

My lovely coworker has been talking about this bed for over a year! And so I am happy to introduce the Shiner Mood Rocking Bed!

It is available in Twin, Full, Queen, and King sizes, and we offer it in multiple metal and wood finishes. You are free to rock it out in this unique focal piece, or can use rubber stops to lock the bed in place.

My Top 3 Color Combinations!

My Top 3 Color Combinations!

Picking colors for your room usually starts off by finding a color, whether it’s the latest trend or a long time love, and pairing it with a beige, gray, or brown. BUT, what if instead of choosing that safe beige color, you pick another color?

Pairing two strong colors can liven up your room and give you more options with accessories and design.

Check out my favorite color combinations!
