High Point Market was another success! We enjoyed seeing the new products from our Vendors and even visited some new ones. My favorite part this year were the new fabrics. The smooth microfiber is looking to be a thing of the past and now everything is made up with chenille or textured fabrics. It gives the furniture an overall high end look, and who doesn’t want that, right?
Another favorite is the beautiful beds! I’m always impressed with the different woods finishes and upholstery, and details that go into creating such a big piece of furniture! Here are a few photos of my favorites!
Favorite Friday! I was inspired by yet another beautiful photo of a room and had to create my own version with products from FurnitureCrate! Check out this cozy nook and how you can get your look right here!
I chose the Carrara Chair and Ottoman from Lexington for the clean lines and rich color. Like the photo, I stayed with a light wood console table, this one by Safavieh. The accents, Table Lamp by Currey & Company, Throw by Surya, and Pillow by Niche by Eastern Accents, have the light teal/blue color that I love!
Spring is here! Finally, right? For all of those who were lucky enough to enjoy the cold winter with me, you understand how excited we are for this time of year!
And speaking of this time of year, have you picked out your Outdoor Furniture yet?
We have a great selection and even more coming soon! Check it out!
We have outdoor rugs too!
Hanging artwork is one of my favorite parts of design. First, because it means you’re about to see the finished project. Second, artwork can completely make a room!
Artwork is up to personal interpretation; what is beautiful to you may not have an effect on someone else. And sometimes, people don’t have an opinion at all. But it’s important to find something you like, don’t give up!
Here are a few beautiful rooms that prove artwork can be essential to the design of your room.
March Madness is here! As you watch your favorite team, are you happy with the area around your TV? Is it time to upgrade to a beautiful Entertainment Center?
Watching TV is typically the main function of a living room, and so your TV is the focal point. Everything, including furniture, is centered on the TV, which can be an eye sore or even throw off the whole style of a room. Enter — Entertainment Centers! If you have the space, framing the TV can help blend the room together or even hide your TV when it’s not being used. Plus, you can never get enough storage space!

Where does your inspiration come from? Where do you look first when it comes to redecorating a room in your home? Many people go to magazines, or Pinterest, or even look to their favorite TV shows! Well, I am no different! Here is a beautiful room I was inspired by, and now you can get it on FurnitureCrate!
It’s Favorite Friday!
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.

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…
I hope these diagrams helped and you have an idea of what hardwood floors are right for you! Now, here are a few Fabulous (Friday) rooms with hardwood floors!
