Memorial Day 2015: Honoring Those Who Gave the Greatest Sacrifice

Remembering Those We’ve Lost

“Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13 (NASB)

Memorial Day first started following the Civil War. Citizens around the country would honor the fallen soldiers from both the Union and Confederate sides of America’s most tragic and violent conflict. Originally called “Decoration Day,” the early summer holiday officially became known as Memorial Day in the mid-20th century. Now, Memorial Day serves as a tribute to all servicemen and servicewomen that have lost their lives while protecting American liberty.

Although to many, Memorial Day marks the beginning of the summer holiday season, the traditions of this reverent holiday go far beyond backyard barbecues and sunscreen. The graves of fallen soldiers and military personnel are traditionally decorated with flowers on Memorial Day as a sign of respect. In many cities throughout the U.S., parades are held showcasing current and former servicemen and women.

Amid the fun and excitement of Memorial Day, it’s important to stop and remember those in the United States Armed Forces who have lost their lives in the struggle for our country’s freedom. Without their sacrifice, our comforts and luxuries would never have come to be. If you have the opportunity, thank an active or former serviceman or servicewoman on Memorial Day.

It’s Official: “Marsala” is the Color of the Year for 2015

Welcome to the Miskelly Furniture, Jackson, Mississippi furniture store blog site!

Every year the experts at Pantone choose one color to serve as that year’s Color of the Year. This color is one to highlight if you’re looking to keep your home updated and in fashion for 2015. So what is the color that’s “in” this year? It’s Marsala – a deep, warm red that goes with pretty much anything!

marsala

As Pantone puts it, Marsala “embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.” The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors.

Marsala is a fairly bold shade and makes a great centerpiece color for those that want to really make a statement. Rest assured though, it isn’t too far out there and can merely act as a highlighted color to gracefully ground a room.

The character of this shade is one that goes particularly well with textured fabrics. It’s an ideal color choice for rugs and upholstered living room fabrics. You can add elegance to any room by incorporating this rich and welcoming hue in accent pieces and accessories.

Wondering how to blend it with other pieces around the home? Try pairing Marsala items with dark navy blues or vanilla whites for a classy and complementary combo.

At Miskelly Furniture, we’re definitely taking note of trending colors and styles! When you shop our showroom floors, you’ll find beautiful furniture, rugs, and chic accessories to complement your home with a splash of this year’s color of choice.

Bring Springtime to Your Home with Whites & Natural Wood Tones

It may not feel like it quite yet, but spring is just around the corner. The Miskelly family is certainly looking forward to warmer weather and we bet you are, too! Soon families will be getting ready to celebrate the Easter holiday and breaking out those white pants and dresses hanging in the closet. And if you’re sensitive to style, that’s not all springtime brings… it’s time for whiter shades to your home!

IMG_6076

Springtime provides the fun opportunity to bring more color into your furniture, but today we’re focusing on how to brighten your home with shades of white and natural wood furnishings, a gorgeous combination. If your personal decorating style is less retro and more traditional, then this is for you!

Shades of white in the home work beautifully because it gives the room a very light and spacious feeling. The atmosphere feels bigger yet it is still relaxing to the eye. White sofas, chairs, and ottomans can instantly transform a dull room to a crisp, fresh one. During the day, opened curtains let the natural light shine in for an even prettier look. You can even place out fresh flowers and light cotton-scented candles for an added bonus!

IMG_6083

When decorating rooms with vanilla or eggshell white themes, rustic wood furnishings make for a classic combination. Woodgrains, especially when presented in a light shade close to their natural color, helps bring a soothing ambience to the home. Think of a beautiful beach scene. It doesn’t take too much imagination to see how flowing white linens and natural wood surroundings can be incredibly relaxing. If you’re in the market for a little more contrast, go for dark wood tones that’ll take center stage beautifully.

IMG_6101

When it comes time to decorate with whites and natural wood furnishings, silver accents are a stunning way to add flare to the space. Silver pieces pick up the light from surroundings and offer a modern touch to the scene. If you have a favorite item you’d like to highlight, place it at the center of the room or along a large wall.

If you’re ready to put this cold winter behind you, a great way to do just that is to revamp your home with fresh, crisp, and airy designs. Come see the incredible selection of furniture and accessories available at Miskelly’s locations in the Jackson Metro area. Our expert interior designers are happy to help you make your springtime home decor ideas a reality!
