Decorate your Walls!

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.

Pedestal Side Tables

Pedestal Side Tables

hooker-rhapsody-urn-pedestal-side-table-3

Side tables are an easy way to add both a stylish accent and a functional piece to any living space. Most side tables are designed to be a good balance of aesthetic, utilitarian, and low-profile. Depending on your needs, pedestal side tables tend to achieve two of the three very well: aesthetic and low-profile. If you are in need of auxiliary storage solutions in your living room, family room, or other room, you may want a side table with multiple drawers or doors, something pedestal tables usually don’t have save for a single drawer in some cases. But if you are more concerned about getting a stylish accent piece that will fit easily into a pre-existing furniture arrangement, pedestal side tables can be the perfect solution.

 

Pedestal side tables come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and styles, but are more prone to being round than are other types of furniture due to balance and aesthetics. Round pedestal side tables provide a number of benefits, such as eliminating the need for harsh corners that can be obtrusive, dangerous, or simply boring and unattractive. Round pedestal side tables also tend to be easier to fit among pre-existing furniture arrangements because they are symmetrical from every angle and can fit into corners, against walls, against furniture, or between pieces with less of a chance of protruding or failing to line up exactly. Lastly, round side tables break up the monotony of ninety-degree angles and rectangular shapes as found in the majority of furniture. By breaking up the pattern you can create a less predictable, more lively atmosphere that is also more welcoming and cohesive to other norm breaking, interesting, or unique décor. The downside of round pedestal side tables is that, in most cases, expanding a circular table surface into a square by extending the edges increases the tabletop area without necessarily needing to expand the base. This can provide slightly increased usable table space if functional surface area is a primary concern.

 

Pedestal side tables usually achieve a significantly lower profile than do traditional, boxy side tables. The trade-off is that the more boxy shaped side tables usually contains more drawers or doors than pedestal side tables do. But without sheer vertical sides extending from the base, pedestal side tables often allow for more flexibility, such as slightly overlapping a raised piece of furniture like a couch over the base of a pedestal side table to save a few inches of floor space or fit the piece into the furniture arrangement. Pedestal side tables also have an air of elegance and individuality by clearly circumventing a utilitarian design in order to achieve a more unique, aesthetic appeal. This design choice is made obvious with pedestal side tables, making a somewhat subconscious statement that storage is not needed and aesthetics are taking priority in the room.

 

In conclusion, side tables are a great way to add style and convenience to any living space. If auxiliary storage is desired, there are many options with drawers or doors providing excellent solutions. However, if the goal is simply to enhance the style of a room and/or provide a convenient tabletop surface for decorative items or everyday use such as setting drink glasses or the TV remote, then pedestal side tables will solve these needs while requiring less space and usually with a higher level style.

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!

The style of this collection grants each piece a unique personality and character with the feeling of a found object. Natural wood with plantation grown mahogany veneers and a mid-tone Tobacco finish and deeper Molasses finish achieve an authentic, aged appearance. The creative use of metal framing and leather inserts further enhances this effect while adding a relaxed, casual feel to the design. Burnished brass knobs and pulls adorn the entire collection for a cohesive, antique look and feel. The entire collection also features a French waxed finish, hand planing, and moderate distressing to complete the charm of each piece. Whether you’re looking to add a single stylish accent to a room, or furnish an entire home from scratch, the Bernhardt Vintage Patina collection has some of the most stylish and functional pieces around.

Cocktail tables are one of the most overlooked pieces when building a living space. You pick out paint and carpet, get a nice couch to match, an entertainment wall or media chest, a nice TV, maybe a chair or loveseat, even lamp tables seem necessary. But a table to go in the center of room? What would you even put? You can’t find anything to match. And look how much floor space it will eat up. You don’t want that.

So once everything finds its way to its position as governed by your theoretical layout, and you stand back and take in the style and atmosphere of your newly decorated living space, it feels great! Look at this marvelous room you’ve designed!

You sit down and love how comfortable your couch is. The TV is in perfect view. The lamp tables are within reach to light up the room just the right amount. Perfect.

A few days after that original sense of accomplishment, and watching your fantasy come to life, you feel something is… off. You cook dinner or order a pizza and want to go sit and watch TV while you eat. After awkwardly balancing your plate on your lap, with sauces teetering precariously over your brand new couch, you start to think.

You invite friends over to watch the game or catch up with a drink, and suddenly everyone is holding a beer can or wine glass in between their legs, in an awkward hand, or setting it on the floor where passing feet are just waiting to spill it all over your carpet. You REALLY start to think.

The room is comfortable, the room is attractive, the room is great most of the time, but it lacks functionality. Cocktail tables are a simple and easy way to exponentially increase the convenience and functionality of any living space, and can often be quite charming pieces. Although it’s true, you will give up center stage as far as floor space goes, you will get much more use our of a few square feet of convenient table space than you ever would out of a few square feet of open carpet.

The Bernhardt Vintage Patina Square Cocktail Table is just one of many examples of an excellent cocktail table option. This piece has charm, functionality, simple design, and its square shape maximizes the ratio of convenient tabletop space to floor space sacrificed.

This piece has a lower shelf that essentially doubles the storage space for convenient temporary storage or as a display platform to add decorative items to accent the room. This relatively large cocktail table (4’x4’) has more than enough surface area to use for dinner plates or drink glasses, even a box of pizza can be easily laid out for guests or family to partake in.

You’ll likely wind up with newspapers, books, the TV remote, DVDs, mail, and other everyday items finding their way onto the upper or lower area of this piece as it provides such an accessible and convenient area to store and retrieve them, but this cocktail table is no one-trick-pony. The Bernhardt collection is an extremely style conscious furniture line that blends traditional and modern style into something attractive to virtually anyone’s tastes.

If you are looking to add a functional piece to a living space, or designing a living space from scratch, consider the advantages of a cocktail table, and maybe the Bernhardt Vintage Patina Square Cocktail Table will make the perfect center to your space.

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.
